Auditions for the musical Matilda wrapped up Wednesday at Lincoln Trail College's Zwermann Arts Center.

Opening night for the play will be Friday, March 20, at the theater. (Blake Nash photo)

Lady Maroons hold off Red Hill, 42-36
A strong finish to the first half was enough - barely - for Robinson High School's girls' basketball team to pick up a win to open play in the Little Illini Conference Tournament Thursday (Jan. 16).

The Lady Maroons broke open a close game late in the first half, then had to stave off a late rally to pick up a 42-36 win over Red Hill in the opening round game of the LIC Tournament in Robinson.

"We had a really good first half, but then we just went away for a while," RHS head coach Sherry Bopp said. "But, the girls found a way to make enough plays at the end and we got the win."

Letting go of, and holding onto, the past
I have a better than average memory - at least as far as I recall. I also have a habit of keeping things from my past, partly because we moved around a good deal when I was little and I learned that show and tell wasn't just for kindergarten. "That's right, this rock came from the Alamo..." and such things always added a distraction to the desire to be looked at less critically.
