Seating is reserved to 275. “Community support is vital to our success and Wine & Whiskers is one example of Heartland asking donors to come together and celebrate responsible animal care in our communities,” Heartland’s director Kerry Hacecky said. “We are wrapping up our biggest year ever and creating some amazing programming for 2019 and I’m excited to share all our success and plans.” This year’s theme is “No Place Like Home.” Hacecky said guests will receive a slight twist on the Wizard of Oz themed event. “We will be sharing stories that bring animals home to us and then allow us to place them in forever homes in our community,” Hacecky said. Top auction items at the gala include a Bald Eagle tour, catering packages, limo trips and more. Hacecky said HHS was overwhelmed with the number of sponsors and donors this year. By Daris Howard I played offensive guard and defensive tackle on my high school football team. On special teams, I was on both receiving and on kickoff. I was almost always on the field. Then one day, my line coach saw me kick the football. The kicker had been challenging and mocking everyone, saying they couldn’t kick as well as he could, so my line coach had me take the challenge, but only after the head coach was watching. So, after I kicked the ball past the end zone into the parking lot, I became the new kickoff person. I mostly loved to kick off, but there was one thing I hated about it. Our head coach, Coach Dale, said I had to stay back and be the last defender. From playing in my other position, I was used to going quickly down the field, usually getting in on the tackle. As kicker, I had an even better chance of getting in on the tackle because I was at the front, I was going full steam, and I also knew where I was aiming the kick. We were doing our first kickoff in the second game after I became the kicker, when I forgot Coach Dale’s admonition. I kicked the ball into the end zone, and by the time the ball carrier came out, I was at the five-yard line to meet him. I didn’t tackle him alone, but I was a big part of it. However, when the play ended, Coach Dale called me over, and he wasn’t happy. “Howard, how many times have I told you, the kicker is to stay back and be the last defense?” “Sorry, Coach,” I replied. “I always forget. I’m used to going after the tackle.” “What will happen if the ball carrier gets through and you aren’t there to stop him?” “But why can’t someone else be the final defender?” I asked. “After I kick, I already have full momentum heading down the field, and I’ve almost always been in on the tackle.” Coach stood there, seemingly stunned by what I said. November’s free Saturday class will be November 3rd, I wondered if it was because I dared question him. I didn’t 10:00 AM – 4:30 PM at the Downtown Library at 200 N mean to.
