Dispatches from Douglas County: Science experiments, art projects, a commanding Tigers pitcher and extra – Superior Telegram


May 26, 2023

SUPERIOR — I enjoy graduation stories! They are quite comparable year-to-year, but it is enjoyable to see a new batch of students marching off to pursue their dreams.

Reporter Maria Lockwood has a story about a graduate of Douglas County’s Therapy Court.

Jonathan Crabtree, 41, is the program’s most current honoree.

We’ve also got photographs

from the University of Wisconsin-Superior’s commencement, which took location Saturday, May perhaps 20.

Right here are the rest of this week’s headlines:

Having their hands dirty

Children use shovels to dig a path in the dirt

Hudson Bonneville, three, and his sister Harper Bonneville, four, dig a path by means of sand for a rubber duck to travel down at the Lake Superior National Estuarine Analysis Reserve table throughout science evening at 4 Corners Elementary College on Tuesday, May perhaps 23. When they tilted the table and poured water on it, the duck produced it to the bottom.

4 Corners Elementary College hosted Science Evening

on Tuesday, May perhaps 23, full with all sorts of hands-on activities. Youngsters launched paper rockets dug a stream in the dirt (noticed above) to see if a rubber ducky could float when water is added and watched as eggs had been dropped from the bucket of a substantial truck.

At the time this story was written, the sophomore was 17-three with a .75 ERA and 238 strikeouts and she was batting .516 with 28 RBIs.
