The fourth annual ‘Cruisin’ with Character’ program at Alhambra Primary will culminate today at Alhambra Township Park. Students began this program in January. The object is to run/walk 13.1 miles within 13 weeks, which the students do during recess. Student representatives from each classroom were also selected based upon their attendance, academics, character and leadership. These student representatives’ responsibilities included leading their class to training sessions, leading students in stretches before running, helping teachers with make-up runs, leading classes in the school cheer, and role modeling positive behavior. Student representatives, pictured from left, are Kallie Hubbard and Oliver Lewis, kindergarten; Tianna Roberts and Laila Barr, first grade; and Jack Henschen and Ryan Tolbert, second grade. As for the “character” portion, Alhambra Principal Cindy Tolbert presented 12 weeks of a school-wide media program designed to reduce exposure to media violence. Students’ final laps in the Cruisin’ with Character mini-marathon will be from 9 to 11:30 a.m. on Thursday, May 7 at Alhambra Township Park. The public is invited to attend to cheer the kids on.

  • Reactions to the 2017 solar eclipse at the Louis Latzer Library

    The Louis Latzer Memorial Public Library, located at 1001 9th St. in Highland held an eclipse viewing party on Aug. 21. Members of the community came to view the event through the special filtered library telescopes. This is the first time in almost 100 years that a total solar eclipse has traveled coast to coast in the United States, and it might be the last one for another century, according to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. The eclipse "path of totality" passed through parts of southern Illinois, though Highland was not on the bounds.
