  • 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.

  • East knocks off Blountstown

    aon Thursday, Dec. 2, the East Gadsden High School boys basketball team started the season off right with a commanding victory over the Blountstown Tigers.

  • Munroe finishes up with Big Ten...

    After four consecutive wins to turn around their season, the Munroe Bobcats ran into a powerful Branford Buccaneer squad in the postseason Big Ten Bowl.

    The result was a 52-12 defeat by Buccaneers on their home field on Thursday Nov. 18, where a faux pirate ship fires a cannon every time the local team scores.

    It looked to be anyone's game until late in the second quarter with the score 24-6 in Branford's favor. Then the Buccaneers recovered a Bobcat fumble on the Branford 7-yard line and everything started going their way.
