    Are you smarter than your neighbor? Are you the one that always wants to play Trivial Pursuit at a family gathering? If you answered yes to these questions, then the Eastern dance teams have just the thing for you.  
    The Eastern High School and East Washington Middle School dance teams are joining together to create a fun-filled, family oriented night for you. They are hosting a “Trivia Challenge” night on October 24 at 7 p.m.
    This is very much like playing Trivial Pursuit or Who Wants to be a Millionaire in your home. However, there is a plus. The grand prize to the winning team is $150 cash. You definitely can’t get that at home or by spending your Saturday night at the movies.  
    The teams are hoping to raise money for costumes and competition fees throughout this season. You could help by putting together a team of six people and joining in the fun. The cost is $10 per person. There will be lots of food, fun and laughter for all. This is a good opportunity for a family-oriented evening that’s very affordable. How often does that opportunity arise?
    Who can play? Anyone! Ask your neighbors, relatives or co-workers. In fact, the teams are throwing out a challenge to the community. Businesses and schools can put together teams to see who is the “smartest” in the community. A trophy will be awarded that night to the smartest business or school!

Cougars fall to Dragons PDF Print E-mail

    The Silver Creek Dragons traveled west to Ramsey to take on North Harrison last Monday, September 28. A strong cold front moved into the area to make it a perfect night to watch a football game. The temperature might have been cold but the Dragons were hot.
    Silver Creek started their first drive by pounding the ball off tackle and in the middle of the Cougars defense. Grant Farley scored from 12 yards out on a quarterback option. The Dragons made a two point conversion by a pass from Anthony Everage to Grant Farley.  Silver Creek then recovered an on-side kick and seven plays later fullback Scott Grether went in for the score. The attempt at a two point conversion was unsuccessful. With 5:32 left in the first quarter, the score was 14-0.
    The Dragon defense forced the Cougars to punt and Silver Creek’s offense marched down the field behind juniors Grether and tailback Blake Evans. Once inside the red zone, quarterback Grant Farley scored his second touchdown of the night.
