Ansley-Litchfield Volleyball finishes as District Runner-Up, State Trip likely on wildcard points

November 1, 2012

Burwell -- Ansley-Litchfield's long winning streak came to an end Thursday night with a 3-0 (26-24, 26-24, 25-18) loss to St. Marys. Ansley-Litchfield will likely be on their win to state due to the fact that Howells-Dodge and Sutherland both won their matchups. The Spartans will likely have enough wildcard points to advance.

“This has been a successful project due to outstanding cooperation by the community and landowners involved,” said NPPD Project Manager Jedd Fischer, in the October NPPD newsletter “GRID.”

November 1, 2012

Are our kids getting enough to eat in school? That is a question that has been inundating the media, and weighing heavily on the hearts of parents since new guidelines were issued last Spring.
With a heavy push by First Lady Michelle Obama, effective this school year the USDA made its first major changes in school meals in 15 years. While the reforms were designed to offer kids more nutritious meals, and in turn raise a healthier generation, the new guidelines have been met with some resistance - by both students and parents.
