Council considers chickens
The Rochester City Council took a request to allow chickens in the city limits under advisement.

The request, made by Rochester residents Shawn and Alyssa Campbell, 1190 Ferndale Drive, was discussed at length by the council. It was met with both support and pushback, particularly from Rochester Mayor Ted Denton, who said allowing chickens in city limits would be "regressive" toward cleanup efforts.

2nd D. hopeful: Walorski absent

Zebra-Viking showdown is Friday
Rochester

0-6, 0-4 TRC

at Tippecanoe Valley

1-5, 1-3 TRC

7 p.m.

It's one thing to be winless. It's another not to give effort.

It's the latter that bothered RHS first-year coach Joe Grant in last week's 70-6 loss to Northfield.

"I thought there was a point in time in the third quarter where we just weren't playing very hard," Grant said. "That was probably the most disappointing thing, just seeing a lack of effort there for a time period in the third quarter. We were feeling sorry for ourselves and just weren't playing football."

Press box is legacy to Bibler
To find a monument to Scott Bibler's football legacy at Tippecanoe Valley High School, one needs only to look to the east.

Adorned with old pictures and signs, Valley's new press box celebrates the life and coaching career of the school's all-time winningest football coach, who was killed in a plane crash on Oct. 2, 2015, on his way to a Notre Dame football game.

The game between Rochester and Valley at 7 p.m. Friday is the first Bell game between the schools since the plane crash, which happened on the evening of last year's Bell game and which also claimed the lives of former Valley coach Charlie Smith, his son Scott and race car driver Tony Elliott.
