Three incumbents sworn in

Three newly re-elected Gadsden County commissioners were sworn in at a special meeting on Nov. 22.
Gene Morgan, Eric Hinson and Sherrie Taylor all vowed to continue to serve their county and its citizens.
Taylor was appointed to be the BOCC chairperson, while Eric Hinson was appointed to be the vice-chair.
“Sophia home now … it’s going to be some straightening ‘round here,” Taylor said, jokingly quoting a line from “The Color Purple” after banging the gavel.

West Gadsden High School’s Panthers face a Gainesville team Friday, Nov. 25, in a Thanksgiving tournament at Rickards.
Panthers win at free-throw line

Last Friday in a Thanksgiving tournament hosted by Rickards High, West Gadsden found themselves matched up against a scrappy P.K. Yonge team from Gainesville. Both teams played a very physical game on the defensive end of the court, which led to many trips to the free-throw line. The Panthers played solid offense for the final two minutes of the second quarter. Two big shots from the charity strip by senior forward Mark Bradwell, gave West Gadsden  22-19 lead at the intermission.

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.
