Congratulations to our October Students of the Month at Prairie Jr./Sr. High School. Pictured from left are Alexis Shears, high school; Cole Martin, junior high and Terran Vanator, high School. Alexis is a respectful and hardworking student who never complains.  She takes the most rigorous courses offered and excels. Cole is studious, hard working and does the necessary work to be a top notch student in the classroom. One of Terran’s best attributes is his willingness to always help those in need.  Anytime teachers need assistance he is the first to step up and offer help.

Some of the new signage that was installed last week at the former Nuxoll Shell Service. Nuxoll Shell was started in 1929 by Al Nuxoll, uncle of Don Nuxoll who sold the business effective Nov. 1. Don’s parents Bill and Viola bought the business in 1948 with partner Jack Whitley and took over sole ownership in 1951. Don bought the business from his father in 1982. 87 years of Nuxoll family ownership is topped only by the Hoene family owning Hoene Hardware. Shown below is an early day photo of Nuxoll Shell with Al Nuxoll at left in front of the car being serviced over the grease pit. That building was farther forward on the lot than the current building, about where the gas pumps are now. Photo below provided by Don Nuxoll to the 150 Year Story.

Summit Academy's students and guests participated in a Holy-ween presentation and party on Wednesday, November 2nd.  The students, all dressed as saints of their choice, learned about four saints while rotating between stations. Many stations had mazes for the students to crawl through before finding the saint.  Saint skits were put on at each station by high school students.  St. Francis of Assisi was found praying in the woods with his animals and nature sounds all around.  St. Andrew Kim Taegon was represented by Korean exchange student Young-min Sim.  St. Andrew's story was presented in Korean, with his 'guardian angel' translating into English for the children to understand. Students also learned about St. Therese of Lisieux and St. Gonsalo Garcia.  After the saint presentations all the students were admitted to 'heaven' where a litany was prayed for all the saints represented in costume. The afternoon ended as every young child imagines heaven to be: all-you-can-eat ice cream sundaes with ALL the toppings. Photo provided by Summit Academy. Click on the photo for a larger view.
