  • New MainStreet leader envisions a Quincy renaissance

    When Joe Munroe thinks about Quincy Main Street, he thinks back to 1998 when he bought his first house: a 150-year-old family home with no working toilets and a broken foundation in the kitchen.
    It was just what he’d been looking for: something to fix up. Realtors kept showing him the most modern and expensive houses, but he was intent on bringing something classic back to life. That’s when he came across the home, which sat on Capitol Hill, Washington D.C.’s largest historic residential neighborhood.
    He wanted it immediately.

  • Panthers stung by Yellow Jackets

    West Gadsden played its first home game of the season this past Friday against the Yellow Jackets of Vernon High.
    Vernon received the opening kick and immediately implemented an impressive run-heavy offense, but a fumble recovery by K.J. McMillian ended the drive inside the Panthers’ 10-yard line.
    Unlike their opponents, West Gadsden’s first drive came to an end after three plays, which forced the defense back onto the field after its initial appearance, which lasted over six minutes.

  • Along Twin Ponds Road

    Here in Aiken, S.C., I can tell the season is about to change, and that fall is in the air.
    The leaves are beginning to exhibit those majestic reddish colors, and some are even dropping to the ground.
    My wife has been reminding me often that she can detect the change of the season.
    For her that has been quite easy lately as she hasn’t been getting around much and seems to be more tuned in to subtle changes around her.

  • Jags suffer opening season loss

    After an hour delay this past Friday, East Gadsden and Chiles finally stepped onto to the field to warm up. Despite the weather, several members of the “Jag Nation” made the trip to Chiles High to cheer on their team.
    High winds and the wetness of the field lead to a run-heavy offense by both teams. Neither offense was able to successfully progress down the field until the Timberwolves offensive line began to open up some holes for their running backs to run through near the end of the opening period.  

  • Girls volleyball continues

    The county volleyball teams are in full action after one week of the 2015 regular season.
    The Munroe volleyball team went 0-2 their opening week.  The team, which advanced to regional semifinals last season,  lost in three games to both Grace Christian (Bainbridge) and North Florida Christian.  Despite the losses, head coach Spenser Morris saw marked improvement at times.  
    Morris said, “At times we played exceptionally well, but then our youth and inexperience would show up, unfortunately!”
