What was supposed to be a "practice under lights" -- the Festus High School marching band's final practice on Thursday (Aug. 29) at Festus Stadium before the first home football game the next night -- turned out to be something else again. A blown fuse resulted in no lights, which resulted in a practice cut short right before sundown. And because Friday night's football game was postponed because of storms, the Thursday practice turned out to be the Marching Tigers' only performance of the weekend.
