Class of 1956 to have reunion


Bow Wow Luau is Sunday

CLINTON — ABC’s eighth annual Bow Wow Luau will be Sunday, Aug. 18, from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Riverview Swimming Pool along the riverfront in Clinton.

This is a chance for dogs and their owners to share the experience of splashing and swimming together, and supports a really great cause at the same time. There is a $6 per dog admission fee with all proceeds going towards Animal Birth Control.

During this event, dogs will be off leash, but must be under their owner’s control at all times. Wading pools will be available for the very small breeds. Waste bags will be available, and owners are required to pickup after their dogs. Please bring your own towels. And don’t forget your camera — there will be tons of opportunities for great pictures.

ABC will also have Jaime from Grooming by Jaime on site offering free nail trims for your dogs. Donations would be accepted, with those going to Animal Birth Control.

There will also be a lemonade stand with lemonade, cookies and snacks for sale by ABC members with proceeds going to the ABC Yager Fund. The Yager Fund helps with emergency vet bills and has been funded by donations alone, but is now getting depleted.

Animal Birth Control is a local non-profit organization dedicated to providing low-cost spay and neuter surgeries for area pets. The luau is one of its biggest events.

For more information, call Judy at 243-6276. This event is co-sponsored by ABC and the Clinton Department of Parks and Recreation.

Cupcake competition

SAVANNA, Ill. — Big Meadows Nursing Home, 1000 Longmoor Ave., in Savanna, will host a Cupcake Wars Contest at 2 p.m. Aug. 19.

Everyone is invited to participate and prizes will be awarded for best decorated, most creative, tastiest and resident choice. If you would like to participate please bring a dozen of your best cupcakes to Big Meadows by 1 p.m. Aug. 19. If you are unable to drop off, arrangements can be made for pickup.

  • Interest in Ernst rises as his game does, too

    Brady Ernst is having a summer to remember.
    The rising River King senior is spending the summer playing for the Iowa Barnstormers traveling basketball team. This weekend they're playing in the Fab48 tournament in Las Vegas.
    "I'm playing with a great group of guys," Ernst said in a telephone interview. "We lost our last game (Thursday) night, but it's all about getting better."
    River Kings coach Nick Lawrence said Ernst had worked on a few new aspects to his game.
    "What he has worked on and what we would like to see him do is step outside and shoot a little bit more," Lawrence said. "I've watched him play a little bit this summer, and he's made five or six that I've seen."
