RANT To the family who let their child noisily climb halfway up the Fishermen’s Memorial last weekend while others were kneeling to pay their respects, placing photos and flowers for the lost. Show some respect!

RAVE To the man and his son who shepherded a mama duck and her five little ducklings from a front yard pond to Green Lake, a trip of about 30 minutes on tiny webbed feet. They warded off a cat and stopped cars to let the ducks cross the street. “Mama seemed to know where she was going,” the man told us as we watched the little family float out onto the lake.
