    The Gadsden County chapter of Students Working Against Tobacco (SWAT) is hosting the second annual Kick Butts Day Kickball Tournament on March 24.  The event will draw attention to prevalent tobacco topics, including secondhand smoke, smokeless tobacco, and smoke free multi unit housing.  Our principal focus will be on flavored tobacco and how these products appeal to and addict our youth.  A petition table will be set up at the event so participants will have a chance to ask their local elected officials for resolutions restricting the sale of these products.

  • East opens at home against...

    As sometimes the case with an East Gadsden football game the action is more exciting than the outcome.
    Last Friday night, the Jaguars journeyed to the next time zone to face a tough Niceville High School in a very loud hostile environment.
    Niceville, a regional powerhouse, is known for attracting big crowds that jam their sunken bowl stadium. The place was packed and the school's large marching band blared constantly from the sidelines.

  • Football season is on for East,...

    The regular high school football season has finally arrived in Gadsden County, but it will be another week before any home field action.

  • East and West are well prepped...

    Darious Johnson may be the fastest guy in Gadsden County.
    And he is one of reasons for all the optimism at East Gadsden High School.
    It's finally time for football.
    Johnson is a senior and Jaguar veteran who will start the season as a receiver and cornerback.
    But he is also a track standout and proved it last spring when he came in second in the 300 meter hurdles at the Class 2A state championship finals at Winter Park. And that was after winning the preliminary and a lot of other track meets to get there.

  • Crowd turns out to "Run...

    In the central neighborhoods of Quincy, there is a range of hills infamous throughout the Florida Panhandle for their steeply sloped streets and ear-popping elevations.

    While this is not exactly true, it certainly seemed so last Saturday during the second annual Run With the Moose 5K race. They were the kind of hills where you would expect to find Sherpa villages and yaks, instead of lawnmowers and dogs. To a wannabe runner, these hills were really steep.

    And there were a lot more uphills than down.
