The Hernando Tigers (7-5; 4-3) had to beat the West Point Green Wave (10-1; 7-0) on Friday night, in order to get into the playoffs. The Tigers felt good going into the half, trailing 7-0 to the red hot Wave, but hopes of a comeback were crushed by a stellar effort from LaKenderic Thomas in the second half.
West Point finished the night on top 21-14, sending Hernando home with its third district loss.
“They’re a good football team,” said West Point head coach Chris Chambless. “We knew they were going to give us their A-game and their best shot tonight.”

Tigers could not stop Thomas on the ground

LaKenderic Thomas sure knows how to put the cap on a good season. The senior running back for the West Point Green Wave had a terrific night on the ground, accounting for 262 rushing yards on 26 carries.
Three of those 26 carries made it into the end zone for touchdowns, as he helped lead the Green Wave to a perfect district record in 2010.
“He’s a machine,” Chambless said. “He runs the ball extremely hard, and he has a great attitude. He keeps everybody pumped up and ready to go.”

Candidates Prepare for Run-Off Elections

November 4, 2010

Though the results of Tuesday’s elections may not be official until Nov. 9, it appears that there will be a run-off between Lee Coleman and Nebra Porter, candidates for the position of Circuit Court Judge-Place 3 for District 16.
The total number of votes from the unofficial results for Clay, Lowndes, Oktibbeha and Noxubee Counties, the counties that the new judge will represent, is 36,696 without write-ins. Coleman received a total of 14,456 votes while Porter received 11,748. Since neither candidate received 50 percent of the total votes plus one, there will be a run-off.

Community Counseling Loses Services Due to Cuts

November 4, 2010

Several programs through Community Counseling in the Golden Triangle were taken away due to recent cuts in funding, and dozens who needed those services are now having to fend for themselves or find help elsewhere.
Lori Latham, Oktibbeha County Administrator for Community Counseling, said the Skills Workshop Program for the Developmentally Delayed, which taught individuals life skills, officially shut down Friday because the $85,000 annual funds for the program ran out. Latham said she won't know when more funds will become available to start the program back up again.
