Women's basketball: Alma stops Beavers

The Bluffton University women's basketball team dropped a 67-61 decision at Alma College on Monday, Nov. 12, in the 2018-19 season opener. Alma evened its season mark at 1-1 following a 59-45 loss at Oberlin on Saturday.

A fourth-quarter flurry by freshman Brianna Gillig (New Riegel) pulled the Beavers within a point at 60-59 with three minutes to play but Alma outscored the Beavers 7-2 down the stretch to cap off its 67-61 victory. Gillig converted four deuces in just over two minutes, however, an eight-point third quarter proved too much to overcome.

It's Bluffton's favorite holiday candy - senior center peanut brittle

Watch for black walnut brittle available soon

If prevailing wages were required no one could afford Bluffton Senior Citizens Center peanut brittle. Especially, with all the seniority levels involved in production.  The junior member of this year’s crew was 70 years old, we think.

Fortunately the crew consists of volunteers. That means one pound of the locally-made candy is affordable at $5 a pound. And, it’s available each November.

It takes a crew of 30 or so volunteers for a full morning of work to create 184, or so, pounds of Bluffton’s favorite holiday candy, according to Tony Meyers, director of the center.
