For a dozen years, preschoolers in Hancock have been pedaling tricycles to raise money to help children facing life-threatening illnesses. The total raised from 12 Trike-A-Thons for St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital surpassed $30,000 when the event was held on May 8, said January Souders, director of the Good Shepherd Preschool. Souders - who has worked at Good Shepherd since 2000 and has been its director since 2005 - is going to Memphis, Tenn., this week for St. Jude's Volunteer Appreciation Day. She has also been asked to speak at a coordinator workshop titled “Moments of Truth,” in which she will share with others how Good Shepherd has grown its event, increasing business and community support, parental involvement and backing from town residents.

Scenes from their lives passed before the Hancock High School Class of 2013 Thursday evening in the form of a slideshow flashing images of the past four years across a wall of the auditorium. The musical accompaniment to the slideshow included John Mellencamp's “Small Town,” an appropriate selection for the town and the school, which sent 43 young men and women off into the adult world. “Of course, we all want to take risks and live life to the fullest,” said Valedictorian Sara Wagner, whose address theme was “You Only Live Once.” The risks chosen have to be wisely considered, she said.
