She's not giving up (03/26/09)
Not all have the same reasoning, but they share a common goal -- to give residents of Sharp County the opportunity to vote for whether they want a wet county.

'We had Class A boys' Seventy years ago, Eagles were one tough bunch (03/26/09)

Call her K-risa: Highland senior ace hits two milestones in one weekend (03/26/09)
Jenna Baker shouldn't feel bad. She was not the first, nor was she the last to face the wrath of Highland Lady Rebel ace Karisa Hendrix.

Season the turkeys (03/26/09)
