Havana man drowns in Swamp Creek

The body of an elderly man was pulled from a creek in Havana Friday morning.

Lewis Jackson, 74, never returned home from a fishing excursion at Swamp Creek on Thursday afternoon, say family members who lived with Jackson near the creek and went searching for him after a few hours.

Those family members found Jackson’s truck and fishing equipment, but saw no signs of Jackson. That’s when they contacted the Gadsden County Sheriff’s Office.

The visiting Maclay Marauders struck in the first inning for 4 runs but Munroe answered for 2 in the bottom of the first inning.  Maclay then scored seven runs over the next three innings to the Lady Cats six runs and the game stayed close until the top of the fifth.  A few hits combined with a few Munroe errors gave Maclay four runs that Munroe could never answer.

“What I really get a kick out of is that they call their high school mascot, the ‘Syrupers,’ or something like that. Doggonest thing,” my neighbor, Stan, laughingly shared with me.
Stan and his smallish dog, Reggie, were heading up the street we both live on, Fantasy Way. My Yorkie, Nick, and I were headed toward them.
It was early afternoon; we paused to converse.
This gentle, elderly man’s habit, whenever encountering me, was to say something short and sweet. He always wore a smile and made me feel good.
