I just wanted to congratulate the Monmouth-Roseville High School soccer program on a fantastic season. Unfortunately the team lost their sectional match against Warrensburg-Latham, but there can’t be any doubt that they fought hard. The score was tied 1-1 at the end of regulation, putting the game into sudden death overtime. The Review Atlas doesn’t have anything up about the game yet, but here is the article from the Decatur Herald & Review.
Again, congratulations to the Titans soccer program!
Two brothers, Keith & Brian Collins, made quite a discovery at Carriage House Antiques in Hesperia, CA. There they found & purchased (for $50) a family photo album of Monmouth’s most famous son, Wyatt Earp.
The Collins brothers suggest that the album’s photos could fetch $1 million if sold. But they intend to keep them and lease out the rights to them.
Quite the find!
Local blogger & Review Atlas columnist Stephanie Sikorski asked for positive media coverage of the Monmouth-Roseville Titans soccer program as they advance to sectional championship on Saturday. Sikorski’s husband Aaron coaches the team. The Titans soccer program was in the local media spotlight earlier this year, but unfortunately that was due to the IHSA suspension of star player “Chino” Ayala & the resulting forfeiture of a tie game with Peoria Manual. Sikorski’s blog post highlights how the team has struggled through multiple adversities with little fan & community support to achieve a very successful season.
I bit the bullet and spent the money to buy my own domain. Blogging Forgottonia is now officially housed at bloggingforgottonia.com. I did this in part to encourage myself to start blogging again. It was $25 for a year through WordPress, so it’s not exactly a titanic financial sacrifice. Still, I paid for the domain, so I better make some use of it, eh?
