He expects the shift to occur in late May or right around the first of June.

When he lived in Chicago, Hastings artist David Cook created sculptures that fit the city’s industrial nature. It was moody, haunting and even a little scary, he said.

Hastings police responded to a hit-and-run incident at Hastings Middle School at 2:57 p.m. A driver reported his truck had been damaged while he was inside the school.

The vehicle had been parked in the business’s lot overnight for repair.
