Henry Hackadoo!

Ethel Slingerland Mullens designed the Henry Hackadoo mascot for South Bend HS. It was on the cover of the 1952 Carcowan. Ethel, who graduated from SBHS in 1952, was called into the superintendent's office and asked to design a mascot. Ethel said she got the idea for Henry Hackadoo from a "squeeky toy that was sitting on the superintendent's desk and the cheerleaders had a cheer that ended with 'hack a doo, hack a doo' and that's how it came to be." Henry Hackadoo T-shirts and crewneck sweatshirts are available by contacting Joyce Kidd on Facebook at Derik Nissell Toy House, and order forms can be obtained at South Bend Pharmacy. All proceeds go to the toy house. Orders will be taken through September.

Inslee on 20th anniversary of 9/11 terrorist attacks

Inslee on 20th anniversary of 9/11 terrorist attacks

Last Saturday, Gov. Jay Inslee issued a statement about the 9/11 terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

"My fellow Washingtonians, today marks the 20th anniversary of the terrorist attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people in this country on September 11, 2001. As we remember this tragedy and honor our nation's resilience, this time is also an opportunity to strengthen our national consciousness and consider what we can keep doing to advance freedom.

"Twenty years is a long time, but all of us who lived through these events remember where we were that day. I was in our nation's capital, serving in Congress, where I saw the smoke rise from the Pentagon. No one could be sure at first what was happening or how it would end. I was fortunate to be led to a safe place that day while the chaos and uncertainty played out, but many others put themselves in harm's way to help others. The courageous passengers on United Flight 93 likely saved the U.S. Capitol building and prevented more loss of life. I am eternally grateful for the sacrifices of first responders, our military and others for their rescue, recovery and security they provided our nation in the aftermath of these events.
