PHEBA â€“ When Hebron Christian junior quarterback Channing Tapley surveys the field inside the pocket, he is confident that he will find one of his receivers in an open position. Tapley, who possesses a strong arm, has to find the right timing and needs crisp routes for success.
Junior Landon Hill, a 6-foot-4 wide receiver, provides that big target and those crisp routes.
Tapley, No. 22, and Hill, No. 2, are a prolific combination in the Eaglesâ€™ passing attack. â€śDeuces Wildâ€ť was unleashed on Friday night.

Penny Elliot took advantage of the clearing skies Friday afternoon to teach her fourth - grade class a lesson in solar energy. The students made ovens from cereal boxes, aluminum foil and plastic wrap, took them outside to see if the sun would heat graham crackers, chocolate and marshmallows. Elliott has been conducting the experiment for more than six years at Central School with her sixth â€“ grade classes. This is her first year to teach fourth grade at South Side Elementary.

The West Point Police Department will start cracking down on residents who own vicious dogs and don't properly secure them.
According to the city's animal ordinance, Rottweilers, Pit Bulls, any mixed cross-breed German Shepherds and Chows are considered vicious animals. The ordinance requires that every vicious animal be contained within a building or secure enclosure, and securely muzzled or caged when off the owner's property.

WPSD voted to donate a surplus school bus to Clay County EMA at its meeting Monday, and the bus will be outfitted with an AmbuBus kit.

PHEBA â€” Hearne Foster, an assistant coach for Hebron Christian, suited up with a helmet and shoulder pads during the Eaglesâ€™ Wednesday afternoon practice.
After losing a player to a concussion last Friday, Hebronâ€™s roster is smaller, but the team is finding solutions to continue the process of developing a winning formula for Friday nights.
The Oak Hill Raiders have had too many miscues in the past two weeks. Whether it was missed tackles against Marshall Academy in the second game at home or two second-half special team mishaps against Tri-County last Friday in Flora, Oak Hill has not overcome the negative swings of the game.
The Raiders are hoping to erase those problems with their first district win. That triumph could be difficult to come by, especially with Oak Hillâ€™s third road trip of the campaign.
