In what has become a tradition, the Saline Area Players are once again gearing up for their holiday show at Stone Arch Arts and Events.  This will be the fifth year that SAP has presented a show there, the same weekend as the traditional holiday parade.  It’s become a yearly event for area families.  This year’s play is entitled “Silent Night:  The Real(ish) Story.”


A dreary, rainy day never kept a farmer from tending to his field. Nor does it ruin a day on the Rentschler Farm.

Organizers say the Saline Area Historical Society's Harvest on the Farm event enjoyed solid attendance Sunday at Rentschler Farm Museum.

The lap pool will remain closed for several more days. The pump went out on Friday. Without the pump we have no filtration or chlorination of the water and therefore cannot operate without it. This piece of equipment is not something that is kept in stock by anyone. We have called all over the country looking for one. We have three companies getting back to us on how fast they can custom build and ship one to us. Once we have it in the building it will be a few more days until it is completely installed and the water chemicals are back where they need to be in order to safely open.
