Broadway comes to Beardstown

Editor:
Broadway came to Beardstown with the BHS/HPF presentation of ”Grease.” What amazing performances from the magnificent cast. Great performances only occur after hours and hours of hard “work” on the drama, the songs and the choreography. The performances were skillfully guided by Allison Wilson, Shaver Tillitt and Cathy Megginson.
The performances couldn’t have occurred without many “behind the scene workers,” including but not limited to Sue and Steve Wilson, the cast parents, the chorus boosters and the HPF members. A big “Thank You” also goes to Cargill for their great financial support.

Great support for final Brick School events

Editor:
It has been a great couple of weeks. Over Memorial weekend, we had an open house that was greatly supported by the community. Today (Friday, June 6) we are having our family picnic, all of which has been sponsored by the Brick School PTO. The only thing that would have been better would have been more support from the administration and the Board of Education.

Sincerely,
Heather Booth
PTO Co-President

Confirm spelling of name...Loyd – ‘one L’

Editor:
Dear Roy,
I just read, and enjoyed, “No exact date of Princess Theater closing” in the May 29 edition of the Star Gazette.
I was surprised to see my name mentioned in your column, but I was also pleased because I rarely see my name in print these days. You have such a great memory.
I, too, remember that day of registering for Little League and you questioning whether my name was Tommy Loyd and my father’s name was Loyd Thomas.

Remembering Tim Looker

Editor:
In March 2014, we lost a good friend and co-worker, Tim Looker. With the help of many people we were able to purchase three benches to be placed around the school in Tim’s memory.

Leave no living being in a parked car

Editor:
Warmer temperatures are a welcome change after a long, cold winter—but as the mercury rises, it’s crucial to protect our animal companions by never leaving them in parked vehicles. Every year, PETA receives dozens of reports of animals suffering and dying in hot, parked cars. Cruelty-to-animals charges are routinely filed in such cases.
