These Midway Dolphin cheerleaders put on a show for those attending Midway Day on Saturday, Sept. 17, at Eugene Lamb Recreation Center in Midway.
A big hit in Midway

Midway Day was a huge success this year.  The event was filled with fun and laughter.  People of all ages danced, as the Deejay played some of the latest hits.  Children, and adults, even did a few Zumba exercises to the music.
While the event usually takes place the Saturday of Labor Day weekend, it was pushed back two weeks this year due to Hurricane Hermine, Charlie Fields, one of the organizers said.

East Gadsden High School’s Jaguars and Rickards High’s Raiders football teams face each other Friday, Sept, 16, at Rickards.
Jags overrun by Raiders

This past Friday’s highly anticipated game pitting East Gadsden against Rickards High got off to a fast start as both teams scored on its second offensive play. The Raiders struck first: Senior wide receiver Javon Wooten caught a screen pass and sprinted 50 yards into the end zone to give his team a 7-0 lead with 11:29 left in the first quarter. The Jaguars answered less than a minute later when sophomore running back Tony Street scored on a 78-yard run, which tied the game.

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.
