November 19, 2012

It was the second round of the 5-A playoffs, and West Point looked spectacular against the Ridgeland Titans.
Everything was hitting on all cylinders as the Wave controlled all three aspects of the game. Offensively and defensively, West Point looked high-caliber and explosive throughout. Along with the special teams play with contribution in the kicking game from Eric Lemus and a kick-off return touchdown by Aeris Williams.

On the field, Ed is playing his final season for West Point and starting at defensive end. He is impressive to watch; he finds himself in the opponents’ backfield constantly and stirs up trouble for offenses. Brown collected 4 sacks this past Friday night against Ridgeland in the second round playoff game.

County Extension Director Donna Cliett spends many of her waking hours putting food packages together at the West Point Food Pantry inside the old Mary Holmes College gymnasium.
The food assortments are put together by volunteers and are provided monthly to 439 Clay County families who are in need. That’s almost 800 people total.
This holiday season the Food Pantry is not just in need of food and donations to keep local families fed, but the institution that has been around for over 15 years needs volunteer labor.

Conner brings 16 years of experience to Kroger

November 19, 2012

Labaris “LB” Conner is a testament that patience does pay off.
Sitting in his office at West Point’s Kroger grocery store on Monday, Conner recalled how in 1996 he was given a shot at bagging groceries at his local Kroger in Columbus. Today he’s the head man in charge in West Point’s store, and besides trying to get the local store into the black budget-wise, Conner has an opportunity to give local teenagers the same shot at a career he got 16 years ago.
“I could have 20 people here,” Conner said. “I may get three out of those 20, but if I can reach those three, my job is done.”
