Clarks' flying feet win 5K event

Runners beat the storm

[AUG 29, 2000]  Runners completed the Lincoln Park District's annual 5K run, The Sky's the Limit, on Saturday morning before the sky poured down rain. Stan and Laura Clark were the first male and female finishers.

The Clarks bring the Skyrunner balloon to Lincoln annually for the festival, and, on the ground, Stan Clark has crossed the finish line first in the 5K event several years running.

The 3.1-mile course followed Primm Road from the Lincoln Park District entrance to Wyatt Avenue, then turned left onto Home Avenue and continued south to a turnaround point between cornfields, returning along the same route.


Poolside refreshments afterward were moved inside as the sky grew darker, and thunderclaps preceded the clapping for the winners.

Medals were presented for first, second and third place in various age categories, with 11 brackets available for males and nine for females. The top male and female finishers overall were awarded trophies. When the Clarks, husband and wife, received their awards, a playful tipping of trophies suggested an exchange of kisses between the figures on top.

At registration, participants had received long-sleeved commemorative T-shirts with logos representing the Art and Balloon Festival and the race sponsors: R&H Farm Supply, Row Motor Sales, Fifth Street Food Mart, M & M Vending Co., CEFCU, Lincoln Park District, Lincoln IGA and Pepsi Cola.

Railers' first game

[AUG 26, 2000]  Lincoln Railers took to the field Friday night for their first game of the season against Olympia, but failed in their attempt with a final score of 40-6.  The loss was attributed the team’s defense.  They just lost too much yardage, was the observation.

During the game, junior Cole Wright was injured and carried off the field on a stretcher in the last minutes of the fourth quarter.  He lost his footing on an attempted kick return. With reported back pain, he was taken to the hospital by ambulance. Lincoln’s Superintendent Fred Plesé said Wright was treated and released and is expected to return to play in the near future.
