Quentin Brackenridge led a large group of Lincoln College students in a peace march chanting the way to the courthouse. At the courthouse they were joined by community members there to learn more on how to connect with one another. The core message was about getting to know each other - get to know others hearts, hear one another’s stories, to connect and understand each other.

Community members stayed after the event and thanked
Brackenridge, appreciating his spirit of kindness and involvement to move the message forward.

Brackenridge and his sister Sharee Tanksley of Champaign, pose on the steps of the Logan County Courthouse late Monday evening. Their mother also came from Champaign to support Quentin and the message. Tanksley said the need is the same in Champaign as it is in Lincoln and everywhere, people need to say and to do the things that can bring us together.

LDN will have more on the Monday event later.

Nick Bekteshi and his wait staff at Country Aire Restaurant in Atlanta took a moment from their busy day to pose for a pink picture recently. Thank you to them for showing their support for breast cancer awareness month. In addition, Country Aire took on the pink challenge put out by the Friends and Family Relay Team and did a special fundraiser for the American Cancer Society.

The same day, Karen Hargis took the pink pedal tractor donated by Central Illinois Ag in Atlanta and breast cancer awareness face masks made by the sewing group at Friendship Manor in Lincoln and set up a table to raise even more money.


The restaurant raised $175 for the American Cancer Society by donating 10 percent of their day's receipts. The tractor raffle and face masks brought in $430 for a grand total of $605 for the day.
