10 Years Ago

March 6, 2014

It seems there's no shortage of talent – or civic mindedness, for that matter – in the family of Doris Huffman (Ruff), of Waitsburg. Huffman recently used her artistic talents to create a painting for Waitsburg's Town Hall. Daughter Deanna Tipton – an accomplished singer and actress who was recently an extra on the remake of Dallas – performed at the Plaza Theater in 2012. Her stand-up comedy/music routine raised $1600 for Town Hall maintenance. And most recently, Huffman's nephew, retired Air Force Band trumpeter Jon Ruff, played on the album that won the Best Latin Tropical Album Grammy at the 2014 awards in January.

Waitsburg's Cardinals encountered Clair Clubfoot last Thursday evening, and before the smoke had cleared he pumped through 23 points in the first three quarters to give Connell a slim lead which they added to in the final stanza, then held on to win the first game of the Dayton District Tournament by 58-55. Clubfoot, shooting mainly from the edge of the key, found the range with an early backet, answered by Maib who got a pair from the line. Dider made the next couple of points for Connell, but then Scott Peterson hit from outside to know the score.
