Paw Pals is getting ready for its last pet food drive and drop-off from 3 to 5 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 9, in the Y101 parking lot, 4-8 N. 24th.

The event will help Paw Pals pet food pantry through its last few months before the organization disbands. Donors can simply pull up in their cars, and Paw Pals volunteers will unload the pet food for them. The group also is accepting cash donations.

Silver Saukees: Pittsfield's state title team to reunite after 25 years
Tony Baker recently watched a video of the 1991 Class A state championship game with his 11-year-old daughter. It had been several years since Baker, an all-stater as a senior at Pittsfield High School, had seen the game. "I sure was awful skinny, and those shorts were awful short," he said with a laugh. "But it was neat to watch. It's kind of a blur, but I can remember plays that were called in every game. It's so surreal."
