VS senior Abby Bartz finishes 20th in Shot Put at the 2022 Drake Relays with a best throw of 36'-.5". This was Bartz's second time qualifying for the Drake Relays in her high school career. Only the top 24 throwers in the State qualify for the event each season.

"I'll be back here in a few weeks," Bartz promised, referring to her goal to qualify for the State Coed Track and Field Meet once more. The State Qualifying Meet will be held on May 12 at Benton.

Over the course of the last week, Fareway workers came in and removed the express lane and first register of the store and installed four fully-automated terminals — the Fareway Fast Lane.

Manager Dave Kelchen said the plan is to have each pair of terminals manned by a regular check-out person who will assist customers as has always been the case. Customers may — if they’d like — do it themselves, but Kelchen said that it won’t be necessary. And there will also still be four traditional check-out lanes.
