  • In the mood for a good scare? Do you like to slink about in graveyards? Do you enjoy seances and hanging out with ghouls, ghosts and other scary creatures? Do things that go bump in the night make your skin crawl with delight?

    If you answered yes to any of the above, head on out to Terror on 12: Castle Dread.

    Castle Dread, located on Highway 12 in Havana, is the brainchild of Debbie Tanner, who dreamed up the haunted attraction 18 years ago.

  • If you’ve never been to a fair or fall festival in autumn you have missed one of life’s greatest treasures.  The weather usually becomes cooler and crisper.  The leaves on the trees are exhibiting their wondrous shades of yellow, orange and red.

  • The Gadsden County School District kicked off this year’s district mentoring initiative at Carter-Parramore Academy Oct 21 with a special program and lunch. This year there are 22 mentors teamed up with 23 students; one mentor is working with two students.

    Chad Price, a senior at CPA who is mentored by schools Superintendent Reginald James, welcomed everyone to the event and introduced his mentor. James gave a brief overview of the program, and CPA Principal Joe Lewis introduced the mentors and their students.
