The high school football regular season is coming to a close…..one game remaining…Late scores….Midway 33-West Bladen 6 and East Bladen ‘snatched” victory from the jaws of defeat, scoring in the final couple of minutes of play to defeat Union 12-8. Both were conference games…The last regular season game pits West Bladen at East Bladen next Friday night….
Then hopefully, both teams will participate in the state 2A playoffs.
If you are a huge fan of high school football, you should read John Clark’s article on the latest average daily membership (ADM) and how it could play a role in the upcoming playoff pairings….

West Bladen Coach Russell Dove could provide commitment papers for me….As my granny said, “I shant tell if he doesn’t.”
Remember when Halloween Carnivals were good events for youngsters to attend, many times church sponsored……Have been demonized….and maybe rightfully so….
The lesson of Halloween is that pretending to be something you’re not will lead to a sweet reward.
Knock, knock. “Who’s there?” “Annie.” “Annie who?” “Annie body home?”
