Even with the high temps, officials say over 1700 participants took to the streets of downtown Hannibal early Saturday during the Hannibal Cannibal 10K run, 5K run walk and kids fun run.

Keaton Bartz edged out Spencer Fuller of Monroe City in the tiebreaker match. I guess you could say Bartz out-painted the Fuller Brush man from Monroe City…

NTSD winds up today with mud volley getting underway at Hill and Front Streets at 7 am, and a horseshoe tourney begins at 11 a.m. in Ringer Park on South Main Street at Warren Barrett Drive.
