BREMEN — Swimming pools. Movie stars.
Those are just two of the many fascinating aspects of life in Beverly Hills, as seen through the eyes of the transplanted down-home Clampetts in the popular ‘60s television show, “The Beverly Hillbillies.” Now, Bremen High School brings the characters alive on the Bowen Auditorium stage with the theatrical production of the same name.

Home benefits Habitat, athletes

October 20, 2011

Instead of being a shelter for its residents, a home located on the corner of Maple and East streets will benefit not only those intending to fix up their homes, but also some area athletes.
Town officials purchased the property with the intention of tearing it down to put up a girls softball diamond. Before they do that though, they decided to let the structure be a benefit to the general public another way.
