    How many sporting events have you attended when you didn’t know which team to root for?
    The Wofford/
    Western Carolina football game my wife and I attended recently was a good one.
    Western Carolina came out winners, 24 to 17, with Wofford threatening to score when time ran out.
    It was the whole college football game experience I enjoyed, which included watching the game, fine weather and loudly cheering fans.

  • Jags end slump with homecoming win

    The East Gadsden Jaguars ended their 19-game regular season losing streak and notched their first win of the season with a 25-22 homecoming victory over the Jefferson County Tigers this past Friday night.
    After the Tigers started the game by putting eight points on the board, the Jaguars were able to score a field goal as the first quarter wound down, making the score 8-3 Tigers.
    The Jaguars started the second quarter with consecutive first downs, and at the end of that possession were able to score a touch down via a 40-yard carry from RB Stephon Simpkins.

    Six days ago West Gadsden hosted Chipley High with a playoff berth at stake. The Tiger received the opening kick-off, and found the end-zone two plays later as their quarterback connected with his receiver on a go route down the right sideline with 11:18 remaining in the first quarter.

  • BOCC votes for art project

    Plans for having a street mural painted on the Adams Street side of the Board of County Commissioners building will move forward as the BOCC voted at their Oct. 20 meeting to begin advertising for bids from painters interested in doing the job.
    The mural will be painted in an effort to spark the revitalization of Adams Street. Chairwoman Brenda Holt said she visited St. Petersburg for a tour of the city’s murals and was told the area became a prime location for businesses in St. Petersburg after the murals were painted.

  • Coming home to Greensboro

    Spectators lined the streets of Greensboro Friday as the West Gadsden High School homecoming parade made its way through the city’s downtown.
    Many of those spectators were parents who came out to show support for their children elected to the various homecoming courts or participating in dance and cheer groups.

  • Panthers snag big homecoming win

    This past Friday an energetic Panther squad ran onto their home field to play a big homecoming game against Franklin County.
    At the end of the contest they found themselves in a position to reach the play-offs with another home victory against Chipley High this Friday.  After the game, Coach Striplin spoke on the importance of his team’s victory: “We treated this game like a play-off game. The coaches did a good job, and the players executed.”
