October 16, 2002

It’s Maple Leaf time
Jets possible, anthem for sure at festival
October 16, 2002
If there are fighter jets flying over Baldwin as the Maple Leaf Festival parade unfolds Saturday, don’t head for cover, it’s just for show. Arrangements have been made for a fly over to start the parade by a squadron based out of Topeka. However, given the current state of alert in the world, there have been no promises made. If the jets are available, they’ll do the fly over. If they’re not, they won’t. “We know it will be between 11 and 11:30 (a.m.) if it goes,” said Sharole Prahl, Maple Leaf Festival chairman. “It will depend on the state of our nation and the world at the time. We’ll just watch the nation’s affairs and what’s going on in the world and hope for the best. “We have invited them to come and do this for us,” Prahl said. “It is a planned thing … if it happens. We’ll start watching the sky to see what we can see. The parade starts at 11 a.m. regardless of whether the fly over happens or not.”

With 5 minutes left in the game, BHS trailed 32-20. But the Bulldogs used the big play to rally for 13 points and pull the stunning upset of the formerly No. 3-ranked team in Class 4A.

October 16, 2002
