  • Filty rich and lovin' it

    By the time you read this, I will not be a millionaire. I did not win the Powerball–again.
    But then again, I never bought a ticket. This time or ever.
    I know. I know. You can’t win if you don’t play. It never occurs to me to buy a ticket–not even when the jackpot is half a billion dollars.
    What does occur to me is how I would spend that money. I daydream about it. Often.
    A few minutes ago while I was on break, I drifted off into that place where life is idyllic, I’m a size 10 and I am the Powerball winner.

  • Alumni Games filled with entertainment

    Saturday night saw the Williston Red Devil Gym heat up with many former Red Devil athletes who once played their hearts out for the home team.
    This night was no different as both former Lady Red Devils and Red Devil men returned to the hard wood in two entertaining games.
    In the first game between the 2011 and 2012 graduates taking on the 2008 and earlier graduates, it was a group of Lady Red Devils who still have the moves, the eye for the basket and the desire to play their hearts out for the Red Devil glory.
