PICKETS VOW LONG SIEGE Mrs. Sandy Nimersheim, 4123 Calumet Cir., Mason, right, led by a dozen homeowners picketing in front of Mason City Hall Friday. The group was protesting actions by the city administration. Mrs. Nimersheim said she was upset over an “unnecessary delay” in issuing a building permit to renovate her basement into a family room. She was joined on the picket line by her three children, Tammy, five; Lela, nine, and Jerry, seven. Also on the line were other Mason residents who said they were “sick and tired” of treatment they have received from the city manager. They vowed to picket all day Monday and attend council’s regular meeting Monday night. Saturday, March 11, 1978.

During the football season, they’re on the sidelines, rallying and energizing the crowd to support the Comets on field. But come winter, Mason High School’s competition cheerleading team takes center stage.
The high-flying group of 26 girls in grades 9-12 does more than just yell on the sidelines. Practices start in June and continue through the summer, with girls spending hours each week working out, flipping, tumbling and perfecting a synchronized routine for competitions, which run October through March.
The Comets started the season on a high note, placing first at the Greater Midwest Cheer Expo Pink Ribbon Cheer & Dance Championship in October and finishing as Grand Champions at the Edgewood Holiday Cheer Championship in November. The team placed 10th out of 21 schools that qualified in its first trip to the OASSA Cheerleading Championship last year and hopes to place in the top five when they return in March.
Click through the slideshow above, or view the photos here, to see the Comets cheerleaders as they spring towards success. The team is also featured in the February/March edition of Our Town, which is distributed to residents of Mason and Deerfield Township.

It was supposed to be a learning experience, but these students from Mason Central School couldn’t stand the drudgery on a recent field trip and broke to play some games. “Red Rover” and “Pile-on” were the favorites, although the unfortunates on the bottom of the pile weren’t too keen on the sport.
