Making scientists

During normal school hours, scientists are busily working in Julius Ervin’s classroom.
Ervin, Gadsden Magnet Elementary School’s new middle-school science teacher said all of his students are scientists once they walk into his classroom.  
A first-year teacher, Ervin said he wants to get his students to be just as excited about science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) as he is.  Ervin also wants to provide his students with a strong foundation in the
sciences.

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.
