Track and Field Time With Timberwolves

Zach Dillon finished 5th in the state last year in the AAA Boy’s long jump clearing 22 feet 10 1/4 inches. It was 4 inches better than fellow teammate Alize Graham-who finished 9th.

“Talk about doing the long jump. What’s the key? Basically for me like mostly I just let my speed take me and I’ll try to get the most height that I possibly can so I can get to maximize my distance,” said Zach Dillon.

“It’s all about your steps because we do 7 steps back and then those 7 steps. It’s all about hitting the board explosion-take off. We call it cycling -cycle our legs it pushes us farther and speed-you need great speed and good speed to be a good jumper,” said Alize Graham.

Hawley Prepares to Host 1st Earth Fest

HAWLEY – It was freezing Wednesday morning in our area, enough to have people looking forward to warmer days ahead.

We found folks in downtown Hawley, Wayne County, wrapping trees with brightly colored fabric.

It’s a way to draw attention to the upcoming Hawley Earth Fest the weekend after Easter.

There will be all sorts of activities from Friday through Sunday in the Hawley area and organizers hope the weather cooperates.

“It’s going to be an exciting weekend, species parade in Bingham Park, kids and families are encouraged to come down and get their spring on,” said Simon Knox with the Downtown Hawley Partnership.
