  • Getting into the game

    You could say this past Saturday was something to cheer about.

    Leroy Smith and Diamonds in the Rough presented the fourth annual Win-Win Football and Cheerleading camp July 12 at the Corry Athletic Field on West King Street in Quincy.

    Win-Win stands for, “What’s important now work is necessary.”

    Professional football players and Florida State University cheerleaders were on the scene to instruct the participants.
    “This is going to be a fun time,” said Smith before the event.

  • Questions in Quincy

    An apparent rift in communications between the city of Quincy’s direction and Commissioner Keith Dowdell evolved into a topic of conversation at the regular July 17 meeting.

    Dowdell motioned to begin the search for a new full-time city manager. Commissioner Micah Brown seconded this motion, but it failed. Commissioners Andy Gay, Derrick Elias and Daniel McMillan voted against beginning any searching for a new city manager, effectively extending Mike Wade’s interim status as city manager. 

  • Gadsden grabs more A’s

    The Gadsden County School District earned two unprecedented A grades in this year’s state rankings. For the first time ever, Chattahoochee Elementary School, led by Principal Valencia Denson, and Havana Middle School, led by Principal Delshuana Jackson, received the highest letter grade possible.

    This constitutes a clear improvement for both institutions. In both 2012 and 2013, Havana Middle School earned C grades. Chattahoochee Elementary School earned a D in 2012 and a B in 2013.
