New Parker student handbook may allow ‘unnatural’ hair colors

Thursday is the deadline for entries in a 2nd Congressional District #02ByYou online photo competition.

U.S. Rep. Robin Kelly, D-Ill., invites residents and visitors to reveal the beauty and distinctiveness of the district she represents in Congress.

“I’m leaving it to the imagination of our talented photographers to highlight what makes our district so special,” Kelly said. “You can capture photos of scenery, people working or celebrating together, diversity, etc. It’s up to you to decide.”

Participants should select one or two photos for inclusion. Entries can be sent . . .
