Drumm, Ridgeway named to all-conference first unit

by Mike Warner
Homer juniors Caleb Drumm and Brock Ridgeway have been named First Team All Conference in basketball for the Big Eight Conference. In addition, Hunter Weeks earned honorable mention status. Homer coach Jim Huffman said Drumm “was pretty much our number one option on offense. As a junior, that’s hard to do, especially with teams trying to clamp down on him defensively. “He was still able to get to the basket even though we saw a lot of zone defenses,” Huffman added.

‘IT DOESN’T STOP HERE’

by Mike Warner
“It doesn’t stop here.” That’s the hope and belief of Homer girls varsity basketball coach Tom Fleming after watching his team advance all the way to the Class C quarterfinals before bowing out last Tuesday at Michigan Center to Ypsilanti Arbor Prep 69-38. It was 33 years between quarterfinal appearances for the Trojans, and Fleming doesn’t want the program to wait three more decades before winning another regional championship.

Practical jokes will get you in the spirit of April 1

by Kristy Smith

I come from a family of jokers. Grandfathers on both sides were noted for loving to get one over on someone. I’ve mentioned elsewhere Grandpa Leo Donovan welding a nickel to a nail and then nailing it down to the wooden floor of his grocery store. He had hours of laughs watching customer reactions to spotting the nickel. Many contrived a story that, “Yeah, I thought I dropped something.” And they would stoop to pick up the permanentlyplaced nickel. Gotcha!

‘Dogs’ need to run freely to hunt and be successful

by Albert D. McCallum

A hunter couldn’t find enough rabbits to satisfy his hunger, so he got a hunting dog. The dog was good at finding rabbits. The hunter was able to fill his stomach. Still, the hunter was bothered that the dog wasted so much time and energy searching where the hunter knew there were no rabbits. The hunter put the dog on a 30-feet long leash to control where the dog hunted. There were unintended consequences from the leash. Now the hunter spent most of his time untangling the leash from trees and brush. For this, the hunter blamed the dog.
