  • Jags take a hit against ‘Noles

    The game started out promising for the East Gadsden High School Jaguars, but Florida High’s Seminoles rallied and came back to take the game 22-13.

    In the first half, the Jags’ freshman quarterback  Treveze Robinson threw two first-half touchdowns and made several long pass plays that enabled him to end the half with 153 passing yards.

    Florida High struggled during the first half, but rallied in the third quarter, recovering a miscued punt by EGHS. The Seminoles drove the ball into the end zone two plays later.

  • Panthers shut out at Chiles

    West Gadsden High School’s Panthers were shut out on the road at Chiles last Friday night.

    The first quarter saw double goose eggs on the scoreboard, but with 8 minutes left in the second quarter, Chiles’ Marcus Clark went 46 yards down the sideline for a TD. The Timberwolves added two more points with a safety.

    Chiles went on to add on a 12-yard TD late in the third quarter, and a 7-yarder in the fourth after a Chiles interception.

  • East, West volleyballers fall, RFM takes wins on the road

    East Gadsden High School took Rickards past regulation score but lost by two in the first game of the three-game volleyball match. 

    The effort then thinned out in games two and three. Rickards moved to 3-7 with the win.

    The West Gadsden High School Panthers found the Bulldogs more than they could handle in a district matchup last week. 

    Finding very little defense to combat the Liberty County offense,  West Gadsden spent most of the game without any offensive fire. 

    Liberty County remained undefeated at 8-0 on the season.

  • Resident wants to pass on a legacy of ‘paying it forward’

    When Georgeann Reffner and her husband, Rich, moved to Gadsden County a few years ago, she was sure of two things: she knew she would love small town living, and she wanted to give back.

    She soon began working at the Gadsden Community Hospital, where she put her many years of nursing experience to work. She was troubled by the great need she saw for medical supplies, both in the hospital and in the community.

    Reffner was working at the hospital when it closed in 2005, and she began once again to ask herself what she could do to give back to the community.

  • They can tear down the building, but not our memories

    They tore our high school down. Now, that will frost your wheat cakes. Most of us were out of town when it happened. I have no idea who makes those kinds of decisions. I’m sure it had something to do with growth, progress and asbestos-free ceiling tile. I don’t believe anyone in our class got a vote in the deal.
