Aurora, IN—Dearborn County Recycling Center hosts its 8th annual ReProm this spring. Over 1,000 dresses are available. All are contemporary and are either new (with tags) or like-new.Participants are asked to bring a formal dress, in clean and in good condition, to exchange for a new or once-worn dress. Dresses must be contemporary in order to qualify for the exchange. Those without dresses to exchange are welcomed to make a cash or check donation instead.The formal dress exchange is not a need-based program. It is open to everyone and is based on the principle that buying something to wear one time is extremely wasteful.

It is open to everyone.The ReProm shop is located at the Dearborn County Recycling Center and is open every Wednesday from 3 pm-6 pm. This year it will also be open March 4-28 on Wednesdays from 3 pm-8 pm and Saturdays from 9 am-3 pm.Dearborn County Solid Waste Management District is located at 10700 Prospect Lane in Aurora.
THE Windies have won their first Test match in 17 years against England, in England, but one Cricket West Indies (CWI) director is particularly concerned about the use of the side’s specialist spinner.Anand Sanasie, secretary of the Guyana Cricket Board (GCB) and CWI director for Guyana questioned the use of the Berbician Devendra Bishoo in the second Test which the West Indies won yesterday by five wickets.Speaking exclusively to Chronicle Sport yesterday, the CWI director said, “I’m worried that you play a specialist spinner and he doesn’t bowl as much as he is supposed to.”“I don’t know if he is carrying an injury or something but that should be the only thing that keeps him from bowling a full complement of overs for the Test match,” he said.West Indies captain Jason Holder’s use of Bishoo came into question by television commentators after the leg-break bowler only got the nod for six overs in the first innings and 25 in the second – a combined total of 31 for the entire second Test.The use of the 31-year-old was questioned by fans and analysts on social media with many not able to understand his underutilisation.Sanasie, however, was quick to point out that there were a host of positives out of the win, saying that the victory represented a rebirth of the Maroon side.“It’s a rebuilding process, it’s a bright young team and it can only move to better things from here. I hope when they move to Lord’s they can do the same,” Sanasie said.“As a director, it’s been tough but I think we are turning the corner with these kind of performances. I always say that as a director of the WICB and secretary of the Guyana Cricket Board that you have to win on the field of play and once you can do that then something good is happening.”
NHL trade news: Blackhawks acquire Olli Maatta from Penguins for Dominik Kahun Phil Kessel’s potential trade has been tabled for the time being.While speaking Monday on 93.7 The Fan in Pittsburgh, Penguins general manager Jim Rutherford confirmed the Kessel vetoed a recent trade and that the team is no longer shopping him. Rutherford didn’t name the team Kessel turned down, though it had been reported that the Wild pitched a proposal to the Penguins back in May.The Penguins traded Olli Maatta to the Blackhawks for Dominik Kahun and a draft pick on Saturday, and Rutherford noted that while he isn’t pushing to trade big name players, he is willing to listen to offers from prospective trade partners.”The biggest thing from a team point of view you can’t have the player controlling the trade because if you do it’s not going to work out for the team so at this point and time I view it that Phil will return with the team,” Rutherford said. “I’m not actively pushing to trade him at this point. If someone comes along with a deal that makes sense, we’ll take a look at it, just like most of the other players.”Kessel, 31, capped his fourth year in Pittsburgh with 27 goals and 55 assists last season. He has 357 goals in 996 career games over his 13 NHL seasons split between with the Bruins, Maples Leafs and Penguins.Pittsburgh posted a 44-26-12 record in 2018-19 before being swept out of the first round of the playofss by the Islanders, with Rutherford saying afterwards that “every possibility is on the table” this summer. Ducks hire Dallas Eakins as new head coach “In Phil’s situation, He was just part of a decision … where we were trying to retool and we had a chance to get a good player, but it doesn’t necessarily mean he has to be traded,” Rutherford said. “He’s been a really good player for us, We wouldn’t have won the Cups without him. He’s an impact player, he will be for a few more years. So we’ll see how that plays out.” Related News Capitals sign Carl Hagelin to 4-year extension
