Hughesville Locals Oct. 29

By Staff | Oct 28, 2014

As fall sports come to a close, the HHS Spartan athletes have shown perseverance and skill in the variety of contests. The Girls’ Varsity Tennis team won the conference championship! Congratulations to all members of the team! While the soccer teams did not qualify for playoff berths, I heard many good comments about the players. Win or lose, athletes always learn something more about their own skills and abilities, so I expect that next year’s teams will be stronger and ready to compete. The varsity, junior varsity, and junior high football teams are closing out their regular season games this week, with the much-anticipated contest with arch-rival Muncy coming up this Friday. Go Spartans!

Keep in mind that Tuesday is election day. All voters who live in Wolf Township will have a new polling place to report to at the Hughesville Friends Church, 137 S. 3rd Street.

Hughesville Area Public Library has recently added some display shelving to the children’s wing. Memorial contributions honoring Beth Ann Foresman Smith were used to provide children and parents guidance in choosing award-winning children’s books. Prominently displayed are books which have won the Newbery Medal and the Caldecott Medal.

As we celebrate Halloween this week, please make sure your walks and steps are clear and safe, and be aware that in recent days there have been several sightings of a black bear in the west part of the borough, mostly bordering on the corn field that stretches from Academy Street to US Route 220 just behind Bodine Park. Be sure that everyone has a flashlight with fresh batteries before venturing outside after sunset.

This weekend turn your clocks back one hour on Saturday night to return to Eastern Standard Time.
