More data, more questions

OXFORD– They know how many kids are in seats now, and where those seats are. What they don’t know is how many more are coming, or when.
The Clear Creek Amana (CCA) Facilities Committee held their second meeting Monday, Nov. 12, at Clear Creek Elementary in Oxford, a school recently closed to open enrollment and the second in the district to do so due to lack of space. Committee Co-Chairs Malinda Lamb and Laura Kay Sheely distributed a revised proposed timeline, including data through the month of November.

Food For Thought

Until I graduated from high school, I was quite unaware of college sports, professional teams, and such things as college bowl games. About the only sport I was aware of, besides my own hometown football and basketball teams, was the World Series, and that was only because the teachers, as well as many of the students, in my high school insisted on having a radio playing in the study hall and broadcasting those games that were being played on school days.

Beer, coke, coal and potatoes

Even though we started the day using socks for gloves because of the mountain cold, we arrived in Connellsville about 5 p.m. hot and tired. Before finding our lodgings, we stopped at the Mile Marker Lounge for a beer.

Hawk Talk

Who would have thought that the Iowa-Indiana game would be huge for both teams to get a shot at a bowl game?
The Hawks started strong, but couldn’t finish and fell to 4-5, 2-3 in the Big Ten, with a 24-21 loss.
It was a busy weekend for Hawks fans.
I actually went to the field hockey game on Friday.
Iowa hosted fourth-ranked Penn State in the Big Ten Tournament and the Nittany Lions came out on top, 3-2.
Saturday, the football game at Indiana was delayed for an hour because of the weather and Sunday the men’s and women’s basketball teams played a doubleheader at Carver-Hawkeye Arena.
