Cathi's Corner

I am worn out. What a busy, wonderful weekend. The football team played like a group of brothers. You could cut the testosterone with a knife out on the field. Check out the pictures on the newspaper Facebook page and come watch them at home this Friday!

The car show was, as always, incredible. Did I mention testosterone? I was never a gal to be impressed with a hot car but there where many of my classmates that were and the car show brings back lots of memories. Doug Smith, you and your crew do a wonderful job each year at the show. Please keep on truckin’.

Help Seasonal Treasures celebrate 20 years! That’s right, 20 years. The celebration takes place on the 21st so mark your calendars and see the ad.

          Calling all vegans and gluten-freers. 4th Street Pizza has got the stuff! See the ad cause (in my best Italian voice) You wan’a pizza? You goa to 4th street. I was also holding my thumb and middle finger together for effect. See the ad.

The Hermann Area People’s Choice Awards are here!!! See the ad for the friendly competition that can get your favorite in the spot light. Fill out as many forms as you like, bring them by or mail them and let’s just see if your favorite is everyone favorite. It’s so exciting!

Who wants free groceries? Find the Hermann Area District Hospital’s heart in this week’s paper, turn the entry form in and you may win FREE groceries from one of our local grocery stores! Fall baking season is coming up and I need to restock. I wish newspaper staff could enter!

Please note the “Player of the Week” on the sports page. Every week a different student is selected and that student gets FREE ice cream from the Down Town Deli and Custard Shoppe. It could be an athlete, band member or choir member. YUMMY

Speaking of breaking news, (isn’t free ice cream breaking news?) aren’t we glad that we don’t have to call on our 1st responders often? Please take note of those honored in this week’s paper. We are the luckiest area around because we are so well taken care of. Thanks to you all. Also note all the businesses who helped bring their photos to the paper this week. This is by NO MEANS all the businesses that appreciate them, just the ones who got the word.

Again, in my best Italian voice, fingers pinched together…havea gooda weeka.
