Die-hard Bowtie fanatics would jump at the chance to own a classic Nova, surely. And a Chevrolet Nova SS that runs low nines will make them jump for joy. Crave no longer, because this particular Nova is turn key and race ready.
Listed on eBay for $31,000, this 1969 Chevrolet Nova SS lives to see the Christmas tree light up on the tarmac. The Nova has been painstakingly taken care of and the original performance of the car has been stepped up by Sam Gianino Racing Engines to acquire those sub-ten second times. The beast is currently rated at 780 hp at 7,500 rpm, and the rear end has been totally built up for the track. The rear end includes an Alston ladder bar rear suspension, JFZ rear brakes, and Unisteer rack and pinion steering. The transmission was also completely overhauled in 2013.

Brinsko, a Hudson resident since 1995, is the former president and CEO of the YMCA of the Greater Twin Cities. He stepped down from the position within the past year and now works part-time as a resource specialist for the national YMCA organization.

They’ll have their first workouts on Sunday. Position players report by next Wednesday, and manager Ron Roenicke will hold his first full-team workout on Thursday. The Brewers are hoping to get a full season of production this year. They led the National League Central division for five months last season, before collapsing so badly in September that they failed to make the playoffs. As always, the Brewers will have to address a number of concerns during Spring Training. That includes getting minor league sensation Jimmy Nelson to win more consistently as a starter at the big league level. He’ll replace Yovani Gallardo, who was dealt to Texas in the off-season. The Brewers don’t know who their Opening Day closer will be yet. Jonathan Broxton is penciled in for the moment — but Chris Perez is also on board, and former closer Jim Henderson continues to recover from shoulder surgery. The
While he has already accomplished something most kids only dream of by signing with an NHL team, Dougherty knows he still has a long ways to go before he can consider himself a success story.

“I’ve never been nominated for anything before, so it’s a nice gesture,” Shiely said. “I’m looking forward to it. It’ll be fun.”
Love of the river
Shiely, who was born and raised in St. Paul, learned to love the St. Croix River at a young age. His grandpa owned a house at the end of Prescott’s Lake Street turnaround along the river, so he and his cousins spent summers and holidays fishing, swimming and skiing, he said.
He was always intrigued when he was younger by the house on Lake Street that he and his wife Dianne have now called home for 40 years. Prescott and its riverfront are in his blood.
