On Oct. 15, the Olney Cubs hosted the Seymour Panthers for the Cubs’ 2nd District game. These teams have had a competitive rivalry dating back decades.
District play is underway! We love hearing from our favorite area high school football coaches during the non-district part of the season because the philosophies always cover a wide range of opinions. Does it work better to play the toughest of the tough and get your team ready for a possible district schedule that is less competitive? Do you schedule teams that are weaker so your team (possibly a younger squad) gains confidence? Do you even have a real idea who will be a powerhouse when schedules are made?
Olney High School Volley Ball Sept. 28
Welcome to October! Aah, what a delightful downpour we received to close out September with a big splash! The much-needed ‘drink’ this parched land gratefully accepted has brought flower gardens back to life with glorious blooms from pale pink to exotic raspberry reds. Rain does seem to affect the human faces, bringing more smiles and friendly greetings from strangers who joyfully open doors or wish you a blessed day. The urge to splash in a puddle or two brings back memories from childhood when running barefoot through such puddles was an urge not to be denied.
Hello, friends and neighbors reading this fine newspaper. I want to start off with an apology for missing last week. I know we are all busy at times but I never realized how much time a career in radio would occupy during a week back when I was a police detective wishing I was doing what I do now. Though, I couldn’t compare my week to that of a local newspaper with true deadlines and events to cover. (Many kudos to you, William Sadler)
