Whether it be the junior varsity squad or the second string on varsity, playing time for the younger members of a school team is extremely important for the longevity of a program.
In last Fridayâs game against the Hernando High School Tigers, the Green Wave was able to put enough points up on the board to afford Coach Chris Chambless the opportunity to put some of his younger players into the the game, including sophomore Dason Thomas (#9), sophomore Josh Ewing (#2), and junior Jayson Burnett (#7).
Brad Morris says that Congress has dropped the ball when it comes to helping the Middle Class and working families of Mississippi and the nation.
On Tuesday afternoon, the Democratic candidate for Congressional District One made a stop-off in West Point to speak with potential constituents about issues and make it known that if elected he intends to reverse many of the policies that he says have stagnated our economy.
âCongress is broken,â Morris said. âThis particular congress has dropped the ball, and it has turned its back on Middle Class and working families.â
With just a few days left before voter registration deadline, Clay County District 4 Election Commissioner Wendy Fuller says that there should be a good turnout on November 6.
âWeâre expecting an 80 percent turnout,â Fuller, who also serves as county chairperson on the election commission. âWeâre getting prepared for it every day.â
Fuller says that two weeks ago, the county was as many as 500 registered voters up from the last major election. She says that number fluctuates from year-to-year due to people moving, but she says she expects that number is growing daily.
The first in a string of presidential debates is a good indicator that election day is right around the corner.
That also means that there are only a few more days to register to vote and be eligible for the November 6 election. District 4 Election Commissioner and County Chairman Wendy Fuller is encouraging everyone who has not registered to do so as soon as possible.
âThe deadline is Saturday, and the courthouse will be open,â Fuller said on Tuesday morning.
