The 20th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution designates Jan. 20 as Inauguration Day. In 2009, this marks the day President-elect Barack Obama will become the 44th president of the United States. Since 1937, this historical day is a time many Americans find themselves not only looking into the future of the United States, but also into the future of their local communities.Although considered a small community, many of the issues that have recently been in the forefront of political debate also affect Falcon and surrounding areas. Among those are the environment, education and the economy.
