Reaganville Lamppost Renamed After President Reagan

The City Council of Reaganville, Illinois approved a measure today to name one of its town's lampposts in honor of the former President Ronald Reagan.

Located on Reagan Road between Ronald Reagan Boulevard and Reagan Street in front of the Reagan County Ronald Reagan Post Office, the lamppost is the seventh in Reaganville to be named after the 40th President of the United States.

"It is most fitting that today we continue to honor Ronald Reagan's legacy by naming this lamppost for his memory, because much like a lamppost on a dark, moonless night, President Reagan's wisdom, charisma and leadership shepherded us through the darkness," Reaganville Mayor Ronald Reagan remarked at the lamppost's dedication.

In addition to Reaganville's sixth lamppost, the town has named its post office, courthouse, hospital and library for Ronald Reagan, as well as a veterinarian's clinic, bank, diner, bed and breakfast, Chinese restaurant, video rental store, gas station, gift shop, bowling alley, feed store, real estate agency, flower shop, miniature golf course, two schools, six churches, three benches, two trees, a creek, a fire hose and the meteorological phenomenon that causes a spectrum of light to appear in the sky when the sun shines onto droplets of moisture in the Earth's atmosphere, otherwise known as a rainbow.

Still, the only local business in Reaganville not named for Ronald Reagan, Tasty Scoops Ice Cream Parlor on Gipper Road, reportedly has no immediate plans to change its name.

Argued Tasty Scoops owner Sal Perea: "I like the name Tasty Scoops. My wife and kids like the name Tasty Scoops. So if someone wants there to be a 'Ronald Reagan's Ice Cream Parlor' in this town, one of its crazy citizens is going to have to open their own damn ice cream store."
