G-A Volleyball Coach Hopes Comeback Win Over Pennfield Shows Team Is Starting To Mesh Into Solid Unit

Falls Short In Finals At Panther Invite

By Bruce Rolfe

While there have been many encouraging signs Galesburg-Augusta varsity volleyball Coach Scott O’Day has seen from his team on the court, the Ram coach would like to see his team execute in other areas, especially with consistency.

Going Inside A Burning Structure Is Dangerous, But Offers Valuable Training For Fire Fighters

Climax Township Assistant Fire Chief Offers Insight Of Recent Experience Of Going Inside A Burning House 

By Bruce Rolfe

You can go through training in a controlled environment that is geared to simulate fighting an actual structure fire, but the elements and variables a firefighter can face when entering an actual burning structure, can bring challenges and unexpected circumstances that may not be present in any training exercise.

While firefighters are trained well and have good equipment to protect themselves, going inside a burning structure can be dangerous.  To read rest of story purchase the September 12, 2014 Climax Crescent available September 11 at Quik Stop in Climax, Scotts Country Store and Deli and Scotts Corner Cafe' and Pease Packing in Scotts, the Galesburg Hardings

Panthers Thump New Buffalo, 48-12

Look Impressive On Both Sides Of Ball In Makeup Contest

By Bruce Rolfe

After looking flat in the season opening 12-0 win over Athens and then having to wait an extra day to get back onto the field because thunderstorms postponed Friday night’s action, the Climax-Scotts football team produced a well rounded effort in a 48-12 non-league win over New Buffalo Saturday in a matinee contest at Big Blue Stadium.

Quick Response By Climax Township Fire Department; Coordinated Effort With 2 Neighboring Fire Departments Likely Saved House

Homeowners Say All Contents On Second Floor Destroyed; Very Thankful For Quick Response By Fire Department

By Bruce Rolfe

When Climax Township Firefighter Chris Audette first arrived at 129 North Main Street in the Village of Climax for a house fire call, he could see flames rolling out of a window at least 20-feet.

It’s at that point a firefighter doesn’t know what type of situation they will face when confronted with a structure fire.

Audette immediately started to knock down the flames that were shooting out the second floor windows with a hose and was quickly joined by Climax Township Fire Chief Scott Smith.

“Probably 20-foot flames coming out of three of the four windows on all sides of the front of the house,” explained Audette of the scene when he arrived at approximately midnight Friday.

Galesburg-Charleston Township and Pavilion Township firefighters arrived a short time later to assist. To read rest of story purchase the September 5, 2014 Climax Crescent available September 4 at Quik Stop in Climax, Scotts Country Store and Deli and Scotts Corner Cafe' and Pease Packing in Scotts, the Galesburg Hardings

Retired G-A Teachers Get A Charge Out Of Greeting Students, Staff On First Day Of School

Tradition Started In 1994 With Retired Teachers Waving

By Bruce Rolfe

A back to school tradition that started with two retired Galesburg-Augusta teachers in 1994 waving to students, staff and bus drivers as they made their way to school for the first day, but discontinued for a period of time, made a vibrant return for a third year Tuesday.

Eight retired G-A teachers held the “first day of school wave” in front of retired G-A teacher, Mary Sullivan’s house on West Battle Creek Street.

Sullivan said after her late husband Jim, and the late Alex Forrester retired from the local school district in 1994, the two longtime G-A teachers and coaches sat in Alex Forrester’s driveway at the corner of 35th Street and Battle Creek Street near the old high school (now the Primary School) drinking coffee and waiving to the teachers and students on the first day of school.  To read rest of story purchase the September 5, 2014 Climax Crescent available September 4 at Quik Stop in Climax, Scotts Country Store and Deli and Scotts Corner Cafe' and Pease Packing in Scotts, the Galesburg Hardings 

 

Ballistic Missile Defense System Becomes More Important As Nuclear Threat From Iran, North Korea, Grows

Conus Interceptor Site In Battle Creek Would Offer Huge Economical Impact, Protection

By Bruce Rolfe

The thought of having a long-range ballistic missile launched by a rogue country aimed at the United States, triggering a missile defense system dispatching a missile in the United States to destroy the incoming destructive missile somewhere in between, seems like something right out of a Star Wars movie.

With one site already in place in out west in Alaska, the Department of Defense would like to construct another missile defense system closer to the East Coast.

The U.S. Department of Defense, through its Missile Defense Agency, is considering the Fort Custer Training Center in Kalamazoo and Calhoun counties as one of four possible locations to place an interceptor site capable of shielding the United States from such an attack.  To read rest of story purchase the September 5, 2014 Climax Crescent available September 4 at Quik Stop in Climax, Scotts Country Store and Deli and Scotts Corner Cafe' and Pease Packing in Scotts, the Galesburg Hardings 


 

3 Fire Departments Respond To House Fire In Village Of Climax 

  Three local fire departments responded to a house fire at 129 North Main Street in the Village of Climax late Friday night that was contained mostly to a room on the second floor. Firefighters said all occupants and pets got out of the house uninjured.

  Flames could be seen shooting 5-10 yards out of two windows from an upper level bedroom before Climax Township Fire firefighters could begin to knock the blaze down.

  Firefighters quickly moved inside the structure to contain the fire to the upper south-east and north bedrooms.

  Fire departments from Climax Township, Galesburg-Charleston Township and Pavilion Township responded to the scene.

   Climax Township Fire Chief Scott Smith said the homeowner told him the fire apparently started from a candle. An investigation will continue.

Climax Woman Completes 7,625-Piece Quilt


Connie Dilno Calls Finished Dear Jane Quilt Very Rewarding


By Bruce Rolfe

A veteran quilter who has been quilting since the late 1970s’, Climax resident Connie Dilno isn’t afraid to take on new quilting projects that may bring a challenge or two.

But the longtime Climax resident admits she likely won’t be tackling the type of quilting project she recently completed again.

Dilno completed a 7,625-piece, 97-inch by 97-inch Dear Jane quilt that brought a few challenges, required lots of time and planning, but the determined Climax woman said the completed project was well worth it.

The history of the Dear Jane quilt that has become very popular today with current quilters, goes all the way back to the Civil War period.  To read our 2014 preview on the C-S Varsity football team and Galesburg-Augusta preview, purchase the August 29, 2014 Climax Crescent available August 28 at Quik Stop in Climax, Scotts Country Store and Deli and Scotts Corner Cafe' and Pease Packing in Scotts, the Galesburg Hardings

Growing Up Magic

By Crystal Rolfe

    Growing up in the small lake village of Colon, I recall the first time I ever saw a real magic trick. It was during the annual Magic Week in August and I was probably around 3 or 4 years old. My folks, my younger sister, baby brother and I lived in a trailer just across the field from the High School. My dad walked with me up town that day with me struggling to keep up with his wide gate.   local-news-calendar-of-events.php

An Incredible 2-Part Story About A Local Man's Courage And The Challenges His Family Has Faced After He Became Paralyzed From An Automobile Accident



 

When Life Throws A Hardball - Part 1

by Crystal Rolfe

   It’s funny how the older one gets, the more significant and sentimental your childhood years become. Growing up in a small town, under the safety net of family and neighborhood friends who looked out for you and whose lives became intertwined with yours may sound “pollyanna like”, but that feeling of security is what helped us move on when the unfortunate situations of life happened.  And as in most everyone’s life, just when you think you have life under control, life throws you a hardball, and bad, sad, tragic things can happen. local-news-calendar-of-events.php

When Life Throws A Hardball - Part II

 

By Crystal Rolfe

   While composing the second part of this article I am struck by how much easier it was to write the first.  Even though part one was about difficult physical and emotional realities of life, this second half is more about what can happen afterwards which can often be as traumatic. How do I tell you about what has happened without giving all of the details? That is the technical part which has had me frustrated.  But then again, frustration is where Mark & Deb have been living for the last year and a halflocal-news-calendar-of-events.php
