On The Calendar

Happy Mother's Day to all you ladies! You're special people...

Last week in the ville turned out to kind of busy. At Monday evening's WHS Alumni Activities Committee meeting it was announced that their monthly spaghetti dinner on Wednesday, May 18, will be the last one until September. Gee time flies when you're having fun! That committee meets on the first Monday of the month. After the June 6 meeting they will be taking the rest of the summer off there too. Thanks to all who support the dinners and other activities. See you in September...

The death of bin Laden was big news all around. By 3 PM last Sunday there wasn't a Pittsburgh or Youngstown paper to be had in Wellsville. Normally the stores that carry them have a few left over at the end of the day.

The recent heavy rains these past few weeks have made Wells Avenue very hazardous with water flooding the street in front of the car wash. It's been worse this year than we can ever recall. Village officials have LSW working on it. Last we heard it can't be determined where that storm sewer drains. We're wondering if the outlet went to Little Yellow Creek & is now buried in silt.

Congratulations to the WHS Track team for their showing at the Columbiana County rain delayed meet. The guys came in 9th out of 11 teams. The Ladies placed 5th out of 12 teams. Shartece Taylor took 1st place in the 100 Hurdles and was part of the 1st place 400 Relay along with Mikyla Tipton, Maleya Fultz and Monica Wilson. Senior Shawntae Dillard took 1st in the Long Jump. Until this week's meet the Lady Tigers held title to 6 out of 16 records for the CC Meet. Leetonia's Clarissa Perkins set the new record for the discus with a personal best of 143' 2”. WHS alumni, Dr. Laurie Punch had held that record since 1991.
