Taking a shot at 2007
With more than five months remaining in 2006, one of the last things I expected to see in my mailbox was a 2007 calendar. But that is what I received this week from Central Alternative High School -- the 2007 calendar commenorating the 150th birthday of Dubuque's Shot Tower.
I have to put in a plug for this calendar. It is well done. It traces the history of the shot tower, which opened just before Christmas 1856. The documentation comes from research projects performed by students in American history and English classes since spring 2005.
And, it gives us the final two months of 2006!
Nice job, Central students!
