Parents in general, we believe, want tobacco and liquor stores to obey the law when it comes to selling to children and will not make it difficult for them by sending their children to buy these things.

At the Section 2AA women’s basketball seed meeting, section coaches voted Andy Rostberg section 2AA coach of the year. What makes the award impressive is that the Tigers won fourth place in the 14-team section. Usually the best seeded or section winner coach wins the award. But the coaches acknowledged the turnaround from an 11-10 to 16-4 overall record with at least two games, possibly more, remaining in the season. “Most of the credit or all of the credit should go to the girls,” Rostberg said. “They’re the ones who train and are on the pitch. Maybe that should be the Team of the Year award, and I’ve told the girls that.”
