Despite the rain, 40 people still participated in the 10th Annual Oblong Spooktacular 5K Saturday. Nearly 100 registered men, women, and children were poised and ready for the event, but the number who crossed the finish line was much smaller, chiefly due to the continual rain. Those who did finish ranged in age from 7 to 76.

Lady Tigers hold off St. Anthony in three
Survive and advance is the name of the game in the postseason and that's exactly what Hutsonville-Palestine's volleyball team did Tuesday night (Oct. 29).

The Lady Tigers fended off a stern challenge from Effingham St. Anthony and held on late to win their first round match at the IHSA Class 1A Casey-Westfield Regional in three sets, 25-21, 24-26, 27-25.

"Tonight was a nail biter," HHS-PHS head coach Shandy Matthews said. "It was a good game. St. Anthony is a good team."

How should we show veterans our appreciation?
Today is Veterans Day. Sadly, some individuals simply consider it as just a day off work, never giving a thought as to the sacrifice associated with it. For those of us who realize the true meaning of this national holiday, we recognize it as a day of reflection and appreciation for our current and previous military veterans―some of whom have paid the ultimate sacrifice with their very lives.
