Trustees tour new school facilities

 

Anticipation is growing for the completion of the new Yorktown High School gymnasium and auditorium foyer.  Yorktown ISD board members toured the facility during their regular board meeting on Monday, August 18.

Ruby Begonia Race Team chooses turkey for Great Gobbler Gallop

 

With the Ruby Begonia Race Team trailing behind, two turkeys battled it out downtown on Aug. 23. But the turkeys weren’t competing in the Great Gobbler Gallop just yet. The race team selected this year’s Ruby Begonia to take with them to the race in Worthington, Minn. on Sept. 13.
 
The two turkeys were brought downtown by turkey raiser Cory Thamm.
 
“As we race these birds, he kind of watches them to see which one he feels would be best,” said coach Kristie Tieken. “He’s been on the race team a few years himself, so he knows what it takes to win the turkey race.”
