A truck with a loaded belly dump trailer slid down Broadway St. clipped an SUV and then slammed a pickup into the side of Arnzen Drug on Monday morning just before 10 a.m. If the pickup hadn’t blunted the blow the trailer might have taken out the whole corner of the Arnzen building.

Mr. Rehder and his class just finished reading their first book for the new school year; Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl. After they finished the book, the students created dioramas of the chocolate factory from the story. The students practiced their public speaking skills by sharing their factories with the rest of the class. During the presentations, the students explained the materials they used to build their factories, rated the book out of five stars, and shared what candy they would pick if they won a lifetime supply of it. The class celebrated their reading experience by watching the movie Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and eating all the chocolate and candy they could! Mr. Wonka (Mr. Rehder) and his Oompa Loompas (the 5th and 6th graders) enjoyed this sweet story and can’t wait to see where their next book takes them!   Pictured are the 5th and 6th grade with their books and golden tickets.
