Nagel @ Night is coming up this October and everyone is pumped! A simple survey was conducted to get the view of Nagel @ Nagel from students at Nagel. According to the results 80% of Nagel students attended last year. Students said they loved the music, dancing, and hanging out with friends. Students did offer great suggestions to improve Nagel @ Night such as that they would rather have outdoor activities, a bigger inflatable, and more drinks and food. Lastly, we asked Nighthawks would you attend again and the results were obvious. Check out our results!

On the night of September. 16th the Anderson vs. Turpin game was the only thing that people in Anderson Township were talking about. It was the biggest game either high school had ever seen. Over 3,800 tickets were sold. In the 4th quarter Anderson got a lucky break with an unnecessary hit call giving Anderson great field position to take the lead. Anderson senior Quarterback Nick Mason threw a 10 yard touchdown pass to Jarred Cook in the southeast corner of the end zone with 7.8 seconds left. Anderson’s bleachers went ballistic, everyone in the stu-

This loss for Turpin puts them at 2-2 and playing Milford next week at home. The win for Anderson puts them at 1-3 and playing Northwest next week. In the Turpin, Anderson rivalry this has been the closest game by far.

Now that it’s the 21st century the Townsend agency (agency Charlie’s angels work for in the TV series) have more upgraded material than in the 1970’s version, even though we have all different types of video-conferencing services they want to keep the identity of Charlie a secret and also to make it more like the 1970’s version, so he still calls by speaker phone.
