1. "Palmer passes for 3 TDs, Scotus 3-0 after 40-23 road win" (Sept. 13)
Opposing teams and defensive coordinators who already have nightmares about Scotus Central Catholic quarterback Tyler Palmer's ability to run the ball will find much more terror when they see Friday's stat line.
Palmer completed 12 of 21 passes, threw for 256 yards and connected on three touchdowns in a 40-23 road win at West Point-Beemer. He added two more on the ground, but only carried it 10 times for 66 compared to the 26 combined attempts he had made through the first two weeks.
His three passing touchdowns accounted for Scotus' first 20 points of the game. Devon Borchers added a 25-yard scoring run then Palmer went in from 1-yard out for a 33-0 lead.

2. "Tessendorf, Vikings deck Cards with 28 unanswered points" (Sept. 13)
Lakeview used a familiar formula for success in delivering a happy Homecoming result on Friday.
The combination of quarterback Evan Tessendorf and a stout defense were too much for visitors Boone Central. Tessendorf ran for a career high 208 yards on 32 carries, scored three times and the defense, after allowing a big play in the first quarter, denied the Cardinals another trip to the end zone in a 28-6 Lakeview victory.
The Vikings improved to 3-0 on the season and have blown out all three of their opponents - 55-6 over Fillmore Central, 42-0 over DC West then the 22-point win on Friday at home.

One approximately 160-acre segment of land has 16 broilers nearly intact in one stretching line and another comparably sized piece of land is in the process of having groundwork completed.
Unofficially, machinery is expected to be moved into the 16-barn facility by the end of September, according to one out-of-state subcontractor working while on-site Wednesday.

4. "Please support Lakeview's bond issue" (Column by Lakeview Community Schools superintendent) (Sept. 13)
On Oct. 15th, we will find out what happens when a fiscally responsible school district asks for a responsible needs-based bond issue.
Lakeview Community Schools is asking the patrons to vote on issuing $12 million in bonds for renovations and additions to the 50-year-old Junior/Senior High School. We have a long history at Lakeview of ensuring taxpayer dollars are spent responsibly. That was on display yet again in 2018-19 when the final expenditures came in with just a 1.0 percent increase compared to the year prior. That is not a new development at LCS since the average per year increase over the last eight years has been just 1.44 percent. This was the sixth time in nine years Lakeview’s yearly increase was less than 1.2 percent. We hear all the time in the news and from our state legislature about how K-12 public school districts don’t spend their tax dollars wisely. At Lakeview, a 1.44 percent per year increase over the last eight years while the student enrollment has increased over 30 percent seems to be the poster child for fiscal responsibility. And it is the increase in student enrollment from 640 to 890 that has created the need for Lakeview to expand.
