Fire destroys sausage factory

As he stands in the doorway of what was the sausage factory he’s owned since 1969, Robert Fason seems a bit more at ease than you expect the owner of a recently burned down business to be.

“It’s just another part of our history,” Fason says about losing his business to a fire. “This may be a blessing in disguise.”
Fason’s Sausage in Greensboro blazed for hours Tuesday night before being extinguished around midnight. Roy Ward, an employee of Fason’s for 14 years, said the building was still salvageable at that point.

West Gadsden High School Panthers take on the Bulldogs of Liberty County this past Friday for the Panther homecoming game in Greensboro.
Panthers play hard at homecoming

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.
