Could you live without technology for 30 Days? That's the question in this smart and fun play by award-winning playwright Laurie Bryant. Ten years ago, tiny North Creek, Wisconsin became "The Most Wired Town in America" thanks to a contest-winning essay from local resident Abigail Rickman. As their prize, SOLOtech outfitted the entire town with state-of-the-art wireless technology. Fast forward to now and the citizens of North Creek do absolutely everything virtually. But when Tom Morris, the founder of SOLOtech, learns that Abigail has sent back her SOLOpad, claiming life was better without it, he seeks Abigail out, concerned that there might be some truth in what she's saying. Despite the protests of his assistants, he offers the town $30 million dollars to unplug for an entire month. With a host of "plugged in" teenagers, an online science teacher who relishes never having to dress professionally from the waist down, and Winston, a virtual hamster whose very life is dependent on SOLO technology, the residents of North Creek learn a valuable lesson about moderation and the time and place for technology in our lives.

Veterans Day Program at Houston High School
Houston High School will host a program to recognize, remember, and honor our veterans on Tuesday, November 11th, starting at 9:00 AM. This program is not only for the students and staff of Houston High School, but also is open to the public. A special invitation is extended to local and area veterans who would like to and are able to attend. Last year, there was a good turnout of veterans and the school would like to see even more at this year’s program. All veterans who attend will be recognized during the program. In addition, the high school band will perform. We hope to see many guests in the high school gymnasium on Tuesday, November 11th, as we salute and thank our veterans of the United States Armed Forces. All Hardin-Houston grandparent or parent Veterans are invited to enjoy doughnuts and coffee with their Hardin-Houston students in the Commons at 8:10 AM.

The money donated through this program serves all of Houston's athletic teams. Your support is greatly appreciated.
