Local residents have long held strong opinions on when, where and how alcohol should be sold and served, but organizers believe this weekend's Crawford County Fest of Ale will open the tap for future events.

Robinson boys' XC wins meet at Newton
Five top-10 finishes were enough - barely - for Robinson High School's boys' cross country team to win a four-team meet at Newton Tuesday (Sept. 19).

The Maroons and Olney swept the top 10 spots in the race, but Robinson took the top three spots, allowing them to a pick up a 25-30 win. Effingham came in third with 81 points, while Newton did not have enough runners to post a team score.

"It turned into almost a dual between us and Olney," RHS head coach Tony Cork said. "For the first mile, they had several guys ahead of ours, but when they came out of the woods with 200 yards to go, Olney had one guy ahead of our top three and one right behind. When I got to the finish line, I found out we went 1-2-3 and Olney was 4-5. That couldn't have went any better."

Insight & Opinion
Letters to the Editor | Guest Columns | Signs of Life

'I gotta be me,' unless someone else is
I found myself at Southern Illinois University in 1966 and discovered I was a number, not a name.

My presence there was the result of choosing between basic training and deciding to continue my education despite my Robinson High School counselor advising me I was "not college material." He recommended I learn a trade. I had already been working the trades for several years by then, and the future it held did not seem especially attractive.
