New London-Spicer was the destination for MAHS boys and girls track and field Thursday. THE MAHS GIRLS Jasmine Henrich kept blazing forward in the MAHS record book, setting another new standard in the discus throw. She had just set a new discus standard two days earlier at Minnewaska Area. Last week saw Jasmine erase the previous record which had stood since 1990. Her name entered the record book Tuesday, and on Thursday she threw the discus 129 feet/four inches, blazing forward again. She took first place at New London-Spicer.
No jail in heart of Morris I am opposed to construction of a county jail in the middle of Morris and believe the Stevens County Board of Commissioners has not adequately solicited public opinion on this matter. We should not look towards jail beds as a means of boosting our declining population. Do we really want to invite scores of non-county prisoners and their visitors to our community? Eight million dollars could instead fund many years of social services to rehabilitate our current inmates and prevent future crimes, thereby reducing our prisoner population.

But, when it comes to recovery from natural disasters, politics seem to shape the Bush Administration's response.

I became the uncool relative who wore dowdy shoes and listened to some weird band called Cheap Trick. So you can imagine my excitement when I not only got to help niece Yolanda pick her prom dress but her prom date, as well. Shes from my small hometown and only a sophomore, so choices for prom dates were slim. Shed asked a couple of guys, who to my auntly outrage turned her down.
