Several Gadsden County residents attended the Oct. 7 Board of County Commissioners meeting to protest a proposal that would have allowed outdoor music festivals with an expected attendance of less than 2,000 to receive the same relaxed regulations festivals planning for a crowd of fewer than 500 people. Despite adamant support from Commissioner Brenda Holt, the proposal did not pass.
This past Friday night a swarm of Panther supporters assembled in Greensboro to watch West Gadsden play their homecoming game against Liberty County. West Gadsden got off to a rocky start on both sides of the ball during the first quarter. The Panthers had a hard time stopping the Bulldogs inside rushing attack, and the home team’s offense was unable to sustain a drive. At the end of the first quarter the Panthers found themselves trailing by a score of 13-0.
