HOLLENBECK: Coming full circle with the show that gave us ‘champagne music’

May 16, 2011

There are people who become part of your life, yet you never meet them.
Such was the case with Norma Zimmer, the “champagne lady” of the Lawrence Welk show, and others who appeared in that musical cavalcade televised every week for many years.
I wasn’t a huge fan of the Welk show in its early days, but my mother was a diehard from Day 1. If you were at her house on Saturday night, whenever the Welk show started, you were seated on the couch to watch all the Welk performers would offer.

Rebuilding year ahead for Glen Rose

May 16, 2011

After the Lady Beavers’ season came to an end Friday, Glen Rose head coach Kyle Lem said it will be difficult to replace the team’s five senior starters.
Particularly his two starting pitchers, seniors Madison Jacobs and Tiffany Houpt.
Seniors Stephanie Farber (center field), Hollie Boles (shortstop) and Katie Peterson (left field) also will be graduating — and leaving big shoes to fill.
Still, Lem said his squad has a strong foundation to build on for the program’s future.
