Hammond readies for Heartland Days rush
Steve Miller has been keeping an eye on the weather since Sunday night.
"I hope the weather stays good," said the coordinator of the 2006 Hammond Heartland Days celebration. "It can kill your weekend."
Such is the focus of the organizing committee for the annual gathering, set for Thursday through Sunday, Aug. 10-13, this year. There are worries about things you have control over, and worries about things you can't do anything about.
