A quick reminder to parents as the summer heats up. Leaving a child in a car unattended is a misdemeanor for the first offense with the possibility of a felony for additional offenses. Please, take the necessary time and precautions to look in the back seat and not leave your child unattended for even a few minutes.
Finally, 50 years ago this past Saturday, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first humans to walk on the moon. The backup commander for that mission was Illinois resident Jim Lovell who is now 91. He would have taken Neil Armstrong’s spot had Armstrong not been able to take the trip. Lovell went on to command Apollo 13, and the rest is history. I was proud to be the chief sponsor of Senate Resolution 277 which declared July 20, 2019 “Apollo 11 Day” in Illinois.
