SIKESTON - The PC Editor says, "We have been blessed with another grandchild, the 19th born to Mr. and Mrs. David Blanton, which event took place in the Lucy Lee Hospital at Poplar Bluff Saturday morning. The little fellow has been doing nicely, but we learn Grandpa Hearne is being carefully watched. We welcome David Jr. to our family circle."

SIKESTON - What looked like the end two weeks ago, only proved to be the beginning for the Sikeston High football squad. After losing 21-7 to Cape Girardeau Central, the Bulldogs picked themselves up, dusted themselves off and went back to work. The result was two straight victories - a 41-28 win over Poplar Bluff last week and Friday night's 13-0 defeat of Vianney - and their first Class 5A District 1 championship since 1988.
