HANNIBAL, Mo. -- Tickets go on sale Tuesday for Hannibal High School's upcoming production of "Bye Bye Birdie."

The musical will be performed at 7 p.m. Nov. 8, 9 and 10 in the HHS auditorium.

The show, featuring the music of composer Charles Strouse, tells the story of a rock and roll star, Conrad Birdie, who gets drafted into the Army at the height of his popularity. In a final publicity blitz, Birdie makes plans to give a final concert and kiss a girl from Sweet Apple, Ohio, while singing "One Last Kiss" on the Ed Sullivan Show. But some wrenches are thrown into this plan by local residents who try to prevent the show from being carried out.

Playing featured roles in the musical are senior Hannah Adkison as Rosie Alvarez; senior Taylor Frantz as Albert Peterson; senior Chris Ruhr as Mr. MacAfee; sophomore Ellie Allen as Mrs. MacAfee; senior Kiley Harold as Kim MacAfee; sixth-grader Jordan Shafer as Randolph MacAfee; junior Michael Sydnor as Conrad Birdie; and senior Heather Frantz as Mrs. Peterson.

According to Sara Kurz, HHS's vocal music director, tickets for the show, costing $8 apiece, can be bought starting Tuesday in the HHS office during regular school hours. Tickets also can be purchased from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays at the auditorium.

Any remaining tickets will be sold before each performance.

    QUINCY -- Debbie Sanders Lewis will never forget the Christmas of 1997. It turned out to be the final Christmas for her son, Tyson, a special-needs child who died the next year at age 7. That particular Christmas also was memorable because Lewis and her two children were beneficiaries of The Herald-Whig's Good News of Christmas campaign, which came to their aid while the family was struggling through rough times.

    As the number of drunken driving cases reaching her desk continued to grow, Jennifer Cifaldi decided something needed to be done to stem the tide. Cifaldi, an assistant state's attorney who handles traffic offenses, went to Adams County State's Attorney Jon Barnard. The result was the institution of a DUI search warrant program. Starting in 2008, the county began to get search warrants for those suspected of DUI who refused to submit to a Breathalyzer test.
