Riddle of the Week

Riddle of the Week

Welcome to the first Riddle Of The Week by me, Lorena Ananieva. Here is a mind boggler that will make your brain turn:

A man has to get a fox, a chicken, and a sack of corn across a river. He has a rowboat, and it can only carry him and one other thing. If the fox and the chicken are left together, the fox will eat the chicken. If the chicken and the corn are left together, the chicken will eat the corn. How does the man do it?

Found on: http://kids.niehs.nih.gov/games/riddles/tuff_stuff_riddles_rd2.htm

Come next week and see the answer to this riddle along with a new one! Also if you have any riddles of your own send it to me along with the answer at my email: lorenadamidget@gmail.com.

Homecoming game ends in shutout

    The BASIS Peoria Scorpions shutout the BASIS Phoenix Firebirds by a score of 20-0 at the October 5th flag football matchup. The tone was set from the beginning, when the Firebirds punted the ball away only to see the Scorpions score. The Scorpions forced some turnovers and penalties en route to their win. The defense for the Firebirds stepped up in the second half and held the Scorpions scoreless.
    After the blowout loss, quarterback Ethan Smith said, "Our defense wasn't good in the first half."
    Coach Tedeschi said, "We need to get back down to the basics: coverages, pass routes, and other fundamentals."
