Been Kinda Slow

Reluctant to go home, Brynn Collett, 2, hides in plain sight from her mother Heidi outside of the Days Inn in Jasper, where the family brought a trunk load of antiques to be appraised by the Treasure Hunters Roadshow. This antique wooden and metal tricycle was passed over by the appraisers, and will return home with the Colletts. Workers at the Treasure Hunters Roadshow have seen everything from World War II Nazi memorabilia to antique watches during their stop in Dubois County.

Southridge led 35-7 at halftime, but Raider coach Kelly Murphy warned his team not to fade in the second half of Friday night's Class 2A sectional final at Raider Field in Huntingburg. North Posey scored three times in the second half but Southridge won 42-28 to secure its third consecutive sectional crown.

Avanish Subbiah, 7, of Jasper snaged one of the last seats in a game of musical chairs at a party celebrating Diwali, the festival of lights, a major Hindu holiday that is also a celebrated Indian cultural tradition. Though most traditional celebrations would include fireworks, the cold weather kept the party inside the Quality Inn in Huntingburg, where candles illuminated corners of the room and a variety of regional dishes were served, potluck style, on the countertops normally reserved for the continental breakfast. Hemang and Darshana Shah, the owners of the hotel, hosted this year's party.
