Philip hosts Region 5B championship - four Scotties to compete at state cross country

by Coach Ralph Kroetch

We could have asked for no better day of Wednesday, October 10th, to hold the Regional 5B finals; and no better course, with temperatures in the mid-50s, a sunny sky and a light breeze.

The 15 schools would gather over 80 athletes to compete for a berth at the state cross country meet to be held in Huron on October 20th.

To say that Region 5 has become more competitive would be a drastic understatement.

A salute to women who work

When God created man, He decided that man wasn't able to live alone. So, with the man's rib, He created woman as a helpmate.

But have women become more masculine? In recent years, they have moved into the tough, often dangerous jobs as police officers, firefighters, construction workers, soldiers and even presidential candidates. Others have moved into professions once manned by males. How about church pastors?
