For people concerned that Uncle Sam is just getting to be too big, Saturday's parade in Blue Mound may have made a case for that argument. Bub Nickell donned the red-white-and-blue suit and matching top hat to walk alongside the Honor Flight float. With the drywall stilts and the top hat, Nickell, who is well over 6 feet tall without the additions, estimated his total height for the parade at 10 feet. (Roger Sims/Linn County Journal)
