A little later the vulture sees a lark. He swoops down, picks it up and goes into the bushes. A few minutes later, the lark comes out and says, "I'm a lark, I'm a lark and I've been sparked!

Quoting Wapella Flag Commision Chairman Bill Morris, "Wapella has needed a banner for some time now. The flag simply shows what we already know, but it still covers the important parts of the village history. Yeah Wapella!". The winning design, submitted by New York Architect Matt Alderman, and made production ready by Motorola Graphic Designer, Chris Drackett comes down to a few important elements:

WHS 1982 Class Reunion
At the Irish Circle

Any and all WHS Grads are invited.
What settled it? Quoting Rose "I was talking with Al on my car phone and Foreigner's "Dirty White Boy" came on the radio. As it happened Al was also listening to Dirty White Boy on the same station in his car. I realized we both are looking for the same thing: good rock and roll and some conversation with old friends. Says Al, "I always liked Rose, and will support her to the bitter end, as long as Foreigner is on the Radio"
Thanks to Al and Rose for volunteering to buy the first two rounds for all who attend.

Case in point, Walt "No Neck" Williams. Good hitter, decent career, but appropriately nicknamed "No Neck".

people driving from Bloomington to Heyworth to exit U.S. 51 north of town and come in on a blacktop. People intending to go on south to Wapella or Clinton should “stay in the passing lane, be cautious and use good discretion,”
In other words, please be cautious and use discretion when entering Hog City.

While Greg Toohill was bravely putting out the fires, some civic minded citizens were putting out the Flags for Wapella's Patriotic Holidays.
These are from Flag Day, but I think we can show them for the upcoming Independence Day Holiday. If there was ever a town that was independent, it is Hog City, still doing its best to stay clear of the County, State, and Federals in a valiant attempt to keep the Spirit of '76 alive. A Salute to all those who served, and those who continue to serve their country is in order for this July 4, so here it goes...Full Salute. Do you have any Salutes in you for this holiday?
Thanks to Wapella Civic Leader David Taylor for the shot.
