  • Column: Stuck in the window

    Jack H. Smith, Whitehall Ledger|Nov 28, 2018

    In my line of work, I've established a routine that makes it a lot easier to get the job done. Any little change will throw me out of my comfort zone and last week was a perfect example of this. With the Thanksgiving holiday on Thursday, I had to change things up to get two weekly newspapers to the printer by Monday and it was a battle. I knew my best bet would be to write as much as humanly possible on the Wednesday and Thursday before, but things don't always go as planned. Instead I was...

    When God said to give thanks in everything, the Thanksgiving Dinner at the school was a easy one! Between the students, teachers, staff and parents, the meal was prepared and served. Was it ever good! It's such a great time to visit with neighbors. Favors made to look like teacups, were made by the 5th and 6th graders. (see attached photo) Students were circulating among the guests, offering to bring drinks or other needs. I might add here, if you are over 60, live in Cardwell or have a...

    Under the direction of first-year head coach Kelly Nieskens, there were plenty of positives for the 2017-18 Whitehall High School girls basketball coach. With their 2018-19 season starting Saturday at home against Manhattan Christian, Nieskens is looking forward to year two at the helm. "The communication between the girls and I has improved greatly.

    Hi Folks We didn't have a regular meeting last week. I hope everyone had a very great Thanksgiving. Carole and I were able to go help with the free dinner at the Stageline Pizza on Thanksgiving Day. Event Coordinator, Bruce Binkowski and his wife Christina were also there. Bruce helped promote the event and they had a great turnout. I think they served over 100 people. Bill Pullman also stopped by and spent a lot of time visiting with folks and getting pictures. It was a great way to spend Thank...
