Hello Hillsboro: Tiger sports stars expand seasons

Congratulations to the Tiger boys basketball team that squeaked by Bangor, 50-48, to capture the Regional Championship Saturday night.

Up next is a trip to the Sectionals in Neillsville Thursday night for another tough battle, this time against Cochrane-Fountain City.

The same congratulations can be said to Max Sebranek, who took his second trip to the individual State Wrestling Tournament at the Kohl Center in Madison after a second place finish at the Sectionals in Necedah.

Somebody alert the Fire Department to keep those fire trucks warmed up because there is going to be more victory parades when those Tiger warriors return home!


The following “story” could very well have taken place in my house, although it didn’t, thank goodness!

A senior couple was having trouble remembering things. Imagine that!

During a checkup the doctor tells them that they are physically okay, but they might want to start writing thing down to help them remember.

Later that night, while watching television, the husband gets up from his chair and asks, “Want anything from the kitchen?”

“Will you get me a bowl of ice cream while you’re in there?” she answers,  before stating, “Do you think you should write it down so you can remember it?”

He quickly responds, “No, I can remember it.”

“Well, I’d like some strawberries on top of it, too,” she adds. “And maybe you should write that down so as not to forget it.”

He tells her, “I can remember that. You want a bowl of ice cream with strawberries.”

“I’d also like whipped cream, and I’m sure you’ll forget that if you don’t write it down,” she responds.

Irritated now, he says “I don’t need to write it down. I can remember it! Ice cream with strawberries and whipped cream. I got it, for goodness sake!”

Then, he strolls into the kitchen mumbling to himself. After about 20 minutes, he returns and lovingly hands his wife a plate of bacon and eggs.

After staring at it for a moment, she says, “Where’s my toast?”
