You donâ€™t have to look far to see the mark Dan Hutton has left on Indiana high school basketball.
Just check your local high school gym. Chances are, heâ€™s done the artwork.
The longtime John Glenn girls basketball coach and painter has created murals and floor art for numerous gymnasiums around the state â€” including, among many others, Northern State Conference schools John Glenn, Triton, Culver, LaVille, Knox and New Prairie â€” and Tuesday, he was honored with the 2010 NSC Service Award for that artwork and his many other contributions to the conference during a ceremony at Glenn.
A nearly packed house saw a musical homecoming for the holidays as Denver Bierman and the Mile High Orchestra gave their high energy all in a Christmas show at Plymouth Wesleyan Church last night.
â€śAs always, it was really good to be home â€” and just great to be able to kick off our Christmas tour here at my home church,â€ť said Bierman. â€śI really canâ€™t thank everybody enough, all the people here in town that helped us make this possible. None of it could have happened without a lot of people helping us out.â€ť
