It's thrilling to feel the excitement in the air and gratifying to have witnessed Coach Tony Crough turn around the attitudes of the players 180 percent in the past two years.

No tolerance for neglect

Surely it is a relief to all parties that the City of Ellinwood earlier this week made the decision to accept an offer from Mark and Cassie Batchman to purchase their property at 104 N. Main, making way to complete the demolition of two blighted properties on the city's two-block business district without risk of damaging a successful business.
