Tigers and Spiders
Tigers and Spiders
Hutsonville fifth-grade percussionists keep the beat to "The Itsy-Bitsy Spider" during Hutsonville Unit 1's holiday concert Sunday. Before ceding the floor to older musicians, the students also performed the seasonally-appropriate "Jingle Bells," and "Soft Kitty," which might also be appropriate considering Hutsonville is Tiger country.

A piece of Crawford County history is gone following the demolition of the former Hardinville School. The school, which once housed students in kindergarten through eighth grade, was torn down late last month. Owner Gareld Bilyew said the structure was "in very poor condition."

RHS wrestlers dominate Carmi, 66-18
Wins came via either pin or forfeit for Robinson High School's wrestling team Wednesday (Dec. 13) and the end result was a dominating victory.

The Maroons scored wins in 11 of 14 matches and rolled to 66-18 win over visiting Carmi in a dual match in the RHS gym.

"No doubt about it, Robinson Wrestling had a good night," RHS head coach Joe Cunningham said. "Carmi is a team that is trying to rebuild a program just like we are. They have a long tradition in wrestling and I really like and admire their coach. We picked up the victory tonight because we won the matches we should have won and also won most of the toss-up matches that could have gone either way."

'Swamp' draining itself

Donald Trump said he was going to drain the swamp in Washington if elected. I don't know if he's the one draining the swamp of if the "swamp monsters" are doing themselves in. I've always been a strong advocate of term limits, but it appears right now that what is limiting many of these folks careers is their own bad behavior. (Insert big smile here.)
