  • Along Twin Ponds Road

    It seems that ever since my wife and I have been able to stream our movies all I’ve been watching lately are “chick flicks.”
    I don’t have a problem with my male ego or machismo and would readily confess to anyone, I watch more than my share of the Lifetime and Hallmark movie channels.
    In fact, I enjoy a good many of them and shed a tear or two over a good love story that focuses around a couple with some substance and likeability.

    Although each team won in a different fashion, both East Gadsden and West Gadsden girls basketball teams won round one of the FHSAA State Series playoffs this past Thursday night in their home gyms.
     East Gadsden handily extinguished Defuniak Springs - Walton by 71-30.  West Gadsden did it the hard but exciting way when freshman Martaishia Atkins hit a three-

  • City manager search continues in Midway

    The Midway council members received notice at the Feb. 4 council meeting that the city’s 2014 audit had finally been
    completed.
    A representative from Moran and Smith LLP, the company which conducted the audit, told the council the city failed to follow the instructional comments the company left on the city’s 2013 audit, meaning many of the issues in the city’s 2013 audit reappeared in the 2014 audit. He said most of the comments have been prior-year comments for years now, and remain unaddressed.

  • Young athlete’s career kicking into high gear

    At six years old Qwuantrezz Knight knew football would take him places.
    It was his first day with the Quincy Rec league, skipping flag and going directly to tackle, having his father sign the waiver allowing 6-year-olds to play on a team with pre-teens, Knight quickly impressed coaches with his defensive prowess.
    “I hospitalized a boy the first day,“ Knight said. “I pretty much knew football would be the thing for me.”
