His legacy lives on

Alphonso Figgers spent most of his life fighting to abolish the death penalty in Florida.  
Figgers, 65, who died at home on April 26, was laid to rest Saturday.  His funeral was Saturday at New Bethel A.M.E. in Quincy.
Figgers was part of the Quincy Five, a group of young black men from Quincy who were charged and convicted in the 1970 murder of a Leon County sheriff’s
deputy.  

Bobcats devour opponents

The Munroe baseball team picked up momentum heading into their 2A-District 1 tournament this week.  The Bobcats won three games last week with wins over Wewahitchka, Altha and Ponce de Leon.
MUNROE 11
WEWA 8
The Bobcats took the lead late in the game in an 11-8 victory over Wewahitchka on Tuesday. The game was tied at seven with Munroe batting in the bottom of the fifth when Matthew Salters doubled, driving in two runs.

Along Twin Ponds Road

Buckwheat’s, a new place in town just opened.
I was close to ecstatic when I realized the second word, (in much smaller print), after “Buckwheat’s,” was “BBQ.”
One of my all-time favorite things to do in this lifetime was to get up early and meet my good friend Joe Faggione for a hearty breakfast of buckwheat pancakes.
Now I search far and wide and cannot find a restaurant that serves those delicious, dark buckwheats.
