Signs in Chanute

There’s a tiny airplane on the street signs. A nod to the town’s namesake, Octave Chanute. Now there’s a name: Octave. With the trend toward old-timey names for babies, that one ought to be put to use, don’t ya think?

Chanute: A Tradition of Innovation.

    I wonder if one of Octave’s parents was musical? Or maybe both of them, since they gave him such a musical name. I like that name and if I have another baby, I’ll name him Octave. Then I’ll move to Chanute and start a band.

    Maybe he was the eighth child.
