Today, the Paint the Paper Pink photo is two pictures of one group. There is a good reason for this, as it allows us to drive home the first point we want to make during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

The first picture is a lovely group shot of the ownership, management, and staff at Graue Chevrolet. Many smiling faces are there to communicate that they care about all the cancer warriors in our community.

In the second photo, the group was asked how many have someone they care about who has been impacted by breast cancer. Of the 32 present, 28 hands went up. That equaled 88 percent of the group. The show of hands drives home the point that most of us have seen someone we care about impacted by Breast Cancer. It is no surprise because this year, 287,000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer, the number two most diagnosed cancer in America, second only to lung cancer. This year, about 47,000 breast cancer warriors will leave this earth.

Why do we paint the paper pink? Each year we do this to raise awareness, show support for the 287,000, and hold in memory the 47,000. Please join us. See the information below if you've not scheduled your pink shirt picture yet.

County Engineer Brett Aukamp recently shared that the county had applied for an Illinois Department Of Transportation Highway Safety Grant to assist with funding the new design. The county has been awarded that grant which is $840,236.
