Tough competition resulted in just shy of a handful of Robinson High School wrestlers continuing their seasons over the weekend. Robinson was host for the IHSA Class 1A Regional Friday and Saturday and the Maroons managed to get four wrestlers to qualify for this weekend's Vandalia Sectional, while finishing fifth in the team standings.

Hutsonville board looks at drug laws and feral cat problem
The Village of Hutsonville is looking at updating their cannabis and synthetic drug laws and discussed a feral cat problem.

With the decriminalization of cannabis by the State of Illinois the village needs to update their ordinances accordingly. Robinson Police Chief Chad Weaver explained to the board how legalization of recreational cannabis works and how some changes to local ordinances are needed. "I hate to equate it to alcohol, but in this case it fits," said Weaver. "You can't have an open or unsealed container."

Maroons fall short to Vincennes Lincoln, 55-50
In what has started to play like a broken record, Robinson High School's boys' basketball team came out on the short end of another close decision.

For the second straight night, the Maroons took on an opponent from Indiana and suffered another close loss.

After dropping a six-point decision at Terre Haute North Tuesday, Robinson played host to a solid Vincennes Lincoln squad and battled until the end, only to suffer a 55-50 loss.

"It seems like we have this same conversation every night," RHS head coach Mack Thompson said. "I feel so bad because the kids fight so hard and I can't figure out how to get them over the hump."

Why not wait until votes are counted?
I recall waiting up to hear if Eisenhower had been elected president. It was exciting because it was the first time I was allowed to stay up late. The radio announcer kept reminding the listeners that it was important to wait until all of the votes were counted and tabulated before the winner could be announced, and mentioned an earlier election in which Dewey was thought to have defeated Truman and how newspaper headlines saying as much got it wrong.
