Gasoline suddenly became a precious commodity last week as Hurricane Irma evacuees and locals waited in lines at area gas stations to fill up there vehicles. It is unclear when local gas stations will have their supplies replenished. Pictured here, vehicles wait in line Friday, Sept. 8, at the Marathon gas station in Quincy.
Irma brings wind, rain, evacuees

 Last week, as Hurricane Irma approached Florida, Gadsden County’s Emergency Management geared up early to get locals prepared.
Emergency Management Director Maj. Shawn Wood urged citizens to go ahead and fill up their cars with gas even though Irma was almost a week away from Gadsden County, if she even showed up.
Meteorologists were uncertain of Irma’s projected path.  At first the hurricane was predicted to hit Miami and head up Florida’s east coast into Jacksonville, Georgia and South Carolina.

Bobcats devour opponents

The Munroe baseball team picked up momentum heading into their 2A-District 1 tournament this week.  The Bobcats won three games last week with wins over Wewahitchka, Altha and Ponce de Leon.

The Bobcats took the lead late in the game in an 11-8 victory over Wewahitchka on Tuesday. The game was tied at seven with Munroe batting in the bottom of the fifth when Matthew Salters doubled, driving in two runs.

Along Twin Ponds Road

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.
