The creators of Blink were amazed at the turnout and the number of people that attended. Dan Reynolds described the experience as unbelievable. There was an estimated amount of 1 million people who came out to the show. Sitting buses were packed to the brim with people, shoulder to shoulder. An uber driver stated that over the span of the 16 years he’s been driving he’s never seen so many people downtown before. Blink got people out to explore places that they’ve never seen before and it was an overall celebration for Cincinnati.
The overall theme of all the artwork was togetherness, although it also brought people together downtown. There were people of all backgrounds who came together this weekend. There were a number of different types of artwork, from murals to light shows to interactive works. Blink would literally stop you in your tracks and leave you in awe with what you are looking at.

Friday the 13th turned out to be a lucky night for the West Clermont Wolves, as they defeated the Loveland Tigers to extend their win loss record to 5-3! The varsity won 16-8 in a close game against the 1-7 Tigers.
“Winning is always a great reward for the long weeks of the season,” said Head Coach Nick Ayers. “We were disappointed in a few things.”
The Wolves were winning 7-0 through the third quarter after a Chayce Gambrell touchdown. “I thought the game was between two very similar teams,” said Ayers. “Both run a version of the Wing T and run similar defenses.”
The kicker for the Wolves made a season long 37 yard field goal in the 4th quarter to make the score 10-0. “I was very happy for Cameron Null, who made the kick,” added Coach Ayers. “We knew he was right around his range. He hit from 35 (yards) a few times in practice this week.”
Loveland then responded with a touchdown and a 2-point conversion that made the score 10-8. The home crowd booed loudly after the officials gave the Tigers a touchdown call though most in the stands thought their player dropped the ball.
Junior Ryan Cann caught a 49 yard pass to help the Wolves take a 16-8 lead. West Clermont ended up with 332 total yards, and the defense held Loveland to only 182 yards. According to the MaxPreps website, the attendance for the game was more than 5,000!
The Wolves next football game is coming up on October 20th. This is their final home game and senior night. “We are very happy for the kids and seniors to get the win before their senior week,” Ayers said. “The hard work has definitely paid off in close games.”

Families decorated the stands with the cups of each seniors numbers. Each player was walked onto the field by family and was given flowers and gifts. Each family had a speech along with the players.

Last week, all seniors attended a meeting during PACK to discuss college readiness and graduation. The next day, senior order info was discussed.
The first thing went over was the college planning timeline for senior year. In fall, you should visit schools and complete applications. Make sure you’re also keeping track of deadlines, searching for scholarships, and asking for letters of recommendation. If you need to retake the ACT or SAT this is the time to do it. Meet with your counselor for help! During winter, make sure the colleges you applied to received all your information and submit financial aid forms. Your acceptance or denial letters will come in spring, when you should make your final decision and complete enrollment paperwork. Make sure to bring all acceptance letters to the guidance office.
