Belleville West teacher’s hard work ends; what to do with the Shakespeare posters?

In her 20-some years at Belleville West, Sage has done just about everything related to the stage except act on it. She’s choreographed musicals and been technical director for plays. She’s directed one-act plays, and she’s led the speech and debate teams. She’s been involved in at least 21 musicals; as well as fall plays and children’s shows. She was especially glad to get to do “Chicago” late in her career, which the school had requested several times but were unable to get the rights to.

Cahokia’s lord of the horseshoe flies

Cahokia Mayor Curtis McCall Jr. again goes heavy-handed when dealing with a situation, but did an older man trying to run a horseshoe tournament really need to be cuffed and taken down to the station? McCall’s appointees should keep their promises to open village facilities on time so no one is tempted to cut off padlocks.
