Bough-ing to tradition

The Havana Christmas Tree Farm is a sight to behold during this time of year.  Families and friends travel from miles away to get a fresh, live tree to serve as the centerpiece for  holiday festivities.
James Lewis said he traveled more than an hour to bring his sons Bennett, Keaton and Jase to pick out a tree.

Fuller to leave Jags for Cougars

Although Coach Corey Fuller will soon leave East Gadsden, he recently reflected  on the Jaguars’ football season.
The Jags finished their season with a 5-5 record, which Fuller said is an improvement from the past two years.  Fuller said in  2015 the Jags finished with a 1-8 record and 0-10 in 2014.
“We didn’t finish the way we wanted to finish, but the kids had a great year all-in-all,” Fuller said.

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.
