Hutsonville fifth-grade percussionists keep the beat to "The Itsy-Bitsy Spider" during Hutsonville Unit 1's holiday concert Sunday.

Veteran's Day is about honoring those men and women who heard the musket fire and bugle call, and were fortunate enough to return home. This year marks the 50th anniversary of heroism a 21-year-old soldier demonstrated while serving in Vietnam which earned him America's most prestigious medal.

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."
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.)
