Hughesville Locals Nov. 16, 2016
Did you see the “Super” Moon on Sunday or Monday? I am just amazed at the wonders of our galaxy and our physical world. Gazing upward always lifts my spirits, and the clear skies recently have given a nice transition to the early onset of darkness in late afternoon. There are several things to keep watch for in the night sky. In the next few days Venus, Saturn, and Mars are visible in the west after sundown, and Jupiter is now brilliant in the east before dawn. Saturn and Mars are gradually moving out of prominent view so they are not as easy to spot as they were this past summer. I have found that watching the sky is a lot more sensible and enjoyable than any electronic media!
Hughesville’s Little Spartan Cheerleaders have earned competition honors! The squads earned a first and a third place. Congratulations! The girls and their parents and coaches have spent much time and effort into building a real team of cheerleaders.
