Today we are manning missions to Mars. Can you even imagine what this world will be like in another 200 years?

Lewis & Clark grants conference affiliation to northeast schools
Harrisburg won’t be the only newcomer to the Lewis & Clark Conference in 2016.
Last month, school boards from Knox County, Schuyler County and Scotland County high schools voted to accept the conference’s invitation to become members, beginning in the 2016-17 school year.
That will bring the total number of member schools to nine at the start of the 2016-17 school year. Currently, the Lewis & Clark has six schools in the conference, but Slater will leave for the Central Activities Conference this fall. The conference will consist of just five members — Fayette, Marceline, Paris, Salisbury and Westran — for the 2015-16 school year.

Roberts remains steady in pole vault
If Chance Roberts has been anything this spring, he has proven that he is consistent.
Through Fayette’s first four track and field meets of the season, he has peaked at 12’-0” every single time. That height was good enough to record a first-place finish Thursday at the Ken Asbury Invitational in Moberly.
Roberts is still trying to break the school record in the pole vault, which he currently shares with Woody McCutcheon at 12’-6”.
