Run-Off Between Coleman and Porter Appears Imminent

November 3, 2010

A tight three-way race for the newly-created Place 3 Circuit Court seat culminated on Tuesday night, with local attorneys Lee Coleman and Nebra Porter appearing to be destined for a runoff.
The seat covers the 4-county area of Lowndes, Clay, Noxubee and Oktibbeha, and the three candidates – Coleman, Porter, and local attorney Bob Marshall – were in a dead heat for most of the night, though Coleman used big showings in Lowndes and Oktibbeha to win the popular vote, though he didn't earn the required 50+ percent needed to win outright.

Four years ago, Leroy Gregg was asked to take over the reigns as head coach of the Oak Hill Academy Raiders. For the last three seasons, the 35-year veteran coach has been at the helm of the Raider program, but after Friday night’s season-ending loss to Winston, Gregg announced that he will not return for a fourth season.
“The first week in October, I went to the doctor so I could get some medicine refilled,” Gregg said. “I found out that I’ve sort of let my health slip a little bit. I had some disturbing blood pressure and cholesterol numbers.”

The West Point Green Wave (9-1; 6-0) football team can smell repeat. If they win on the road, at Hernando, this Friday night, they will have repeated one more aspect from the 2009 season.
Last Friday night’s victory over the Clarksdale Wildcats gave the Green Wave the Region I crown. A win at Hernando will give the Green Wave the exact same regular season record as last year.
West Point will be facing a very good Tigers team, which comes into the game with an overall 7-4 record and a 4-2 district mark.
