WORTHINGTON -- Saturday there will be four high school girls' basketball tournament games played at the Worthington Senior High Gymnasium. The event, dubbed as "Super Saturday," features eight teams playing in the quarterfinals of what is now known as Section 3A South. While the total attendance at the big event may be quite large, the numbers will likely not come close to reaching the capacity crowds that used to fill the WHS gym in the days of the "old" District 7 and District 8 tournaments -- or rival the jam-packed atmosphere of the 1992 Sub-Section 10 boys' championship game between Sla

WORTHINGTON -- I would be very interested to know what a lake shoreline needs to look like to make everyone who uses it happy. There is a wide variety of uses shorelines see in a year, and the different user groups want to see very differently things most of the time.
WORTHINGTON -- For more than three weeks, I have been attempting to put together a "blast" about the Worthington Gym.
