Prime Time wrap 2017

The Prime Time championship was last Sunday at the North Liberty Recreation Center.
The champion was Vinton Merchants, led by league MVP Jack Nunge, who scored 42 points with 14 rebounds, and Brady Ellingson, who had 20 points and 10 boards.

I went to every game helping with the stats and saw the new Hawks plus the veterans play and will break down my observations of the players.
I’ll start with the two new big guys.
Jack Nunge and Luka Garza both either met or exceeded expectations.

When dishwashers were sisters

Food For Thought

The automatic dishwasher, which started appearing in most homes during the 1950s, did more than leave the plate, glasses and silverware sparkling and sanitized. It changed some long-lived practices and altered dynamics between certain family members. Prior to that time, dishes were scraped, rinsed, washed, dried and put away by hand, and it was more often than not a cooperative effort between sisters or mothers and daughters. Families without daughters were known to actually teach boys to deal with the used cutlery, soiled plates and greasy pots and pans.
