10 YEARS AGO (Taken from the Thursday, Sept. 28, 2006 issue of the Hancock Record.) The Hancock Homecoming king and queen were crowned on Sept. 21. Annie Messner was crowned queen and Ben Hacker, king. Candidates also included Elizabeth Schaefer, Michael Nohl, Alyssa Wagner, Rick Foss, Stacie Cunningham and Justin Nelson.
Congratulations to Anne Hennen Barber who was just named the new director of the Morris Public Library. Anne will be great. She will bring lots of ideas and enthusiasm to the position.
The Hancock community may have noticed by now at the home football and volleyball games that we have a cheer team to root our athletes to victory during games. The Hancock Cheer Squad consists of Annie Marczak, Amber Hausmann, Harliegh Schlief, Miranda Chamberlain, Chloe Crowell, Savannah Schlief, Amanda Wevley, student manager Amanda Chamberlain, and coached by Ashley Christianson. When you see the squad cheering at football and volleyball games, you probably don't realize all the 'behind the scenes' tasks that they do for our athletes.
"They need us," was the simple answer Supt. Loren Hacker told Hancock school board members at their meeting on Monday night. The question was whether or not the district should think about limiting the number of open enroll students. The discussion followed the predicted enrollment numbers presented by Hacker for the next five years. The prediction was conservative using an average of 26 incoming kindergarten students each year.
Anyone who thinks it is an easy thing to move, has probably never gone through one. This will be my husband and I's second big move and I think this one is worse than the first. Probably because we didn't get rid of enough things before that first move 12 years ago and have accumulated a lot since then.

The house has been burned, the trees are down and the lot at the corner of Third Street and Hancock Avenue in Hancock is ready to be made into a...
Many years ago some newspaper people recognized that the newspaper is a "living textbook." The simple process of writing and printing a textbook means that most of them are out of date as soon as they are published. That is not true with a newspaper which is updated and changed with each issue. With the thinking that a newspaper is a textbook the idea of using newspapers in the classroom was born. Today, newspapers are used in the classrooms and in other continuing education programs throughout the country, not as substitutes for textbooks but as supplements to them.
