150 years is a long time.
The "committee" has been meeting and plans are well underway for a big celebration to commemorate the 150th year of the founding of the Hamm's Brewing Company.
It was back in 1865 that founder Theodore Hamm began producing beer, utilizing water from Phalen Creek, which flowed through his brewery property at Minnehaha and Payne avenues.
It might sound like a cliché but the main goal for the Mounds View High School boys soccer team is to get better each day. Head coach Chris Scanlon feels that if that goal is met, some other aspirations can also be achieved.
Both Irondale and St. Anthony Village closed out the pre-Labor Day portion of their football schedules with home games last Thursday. Both teams then headed into the holiday weekend looking to regroup following losses.
While the Spring Lake Park/St. Anthony Village girls soccer team finished below .500 in its first year in the Northwest Suburban Conference last year, the Panthers competed well and are eager to build on that this fall.
The last time the Mounds View High School football team had a losing record at any time during a season was in 2008 when it started out 0-1. After a 1-1 start this season, the Mustangs needed a win in week three to avoid dropping below .500.
