Hillsboro High School students, from left, Kennedy Lucero, Madison Klein, Emily Jost, and Allison Weber are lined up for a photo Saturday, but Klein is the only one ready for the photographer while the others are distracted by the activities of pre-prom picture-taking in the park. The photo shoot has become a tradition in recent years. A strong storm stayed to the west until the photo shoot was over, but then came in with wind and rain as students arrived at HHS/HMS for prom.
A truck-mounted light tower illuminates the home at 311 W. Grand Ave. in Hillsboro as firefighters investigate the scene. Hillsboro fire chief Ben Steketee said the fire was mostly smoke when firefighters arrived on-scene, and a couch, shown upturned in the yard to the left of the firefighters, was determined to be the source of the blaze. The one man in the house made it out with severe burns on his arm. Witnesses said he attempted to put out the fire before he evacuated the residence.

Hillsboro third baseman Ryan Stepanek coils for a throw to first base Monday after fielding a grounder in the first game of a doubleheader against Kingman in Hillsboro. The Trojans had trouble turning base runners into runs scored, losing both games. The games were re-scheduled from a Friday rainout, leaving the Trojans little time to dwell on the losses, as they went on the road Tuesday to play Larned.
