‘Somewhere to call your own’

Ayanna McKinnon has been going through the process of owning a home with the Big Bend chapter of Habitat for Humanity for two years now. That process could finally be over in October.
Habitat of Humanity began construction on McKinnon’s home Saturday. It will be in Midway, making it the first home built by Habitat in Gadsden County in five years. The home will have three bedrooms and two bathrooms.
To prepare for buying a home through Habitat, McKinnon was required to take courses pertaining to budgeting, maintaining good credit and maintaining a home.

With new head coach, East Gadsden Jaguars ready to roar this season

Under the guidance of returned Coach Corey Fuller,  the Jaguars have turned the page on last year’s forgettable season, and have refocused themselves. Optimism within the players and coaches can be both seen and felt during their intense team practices.
The seed of high expectation was planted by East Gadsden’s coaching staff in the spring, and is continually being watered during fall practice.  
Fuller is providing his players with tough love in an effort to make sure “guys get better with each practice.”

Gloria Dowaliby should haven been in show business. Instead, she chose the teaching profession. She was glamorous, witty and just seemed to have all those characteristics of a Broadway star. Fortunately for Gloria’s students, she became a teacher.
Gloria started her teaching career around 1953 at Lincoln-
Lewis Junior High in Southington, Conn.
I was privileged to have had Miss Dowaliby as my seventh-grade English, history and homeroom teacher.
