"He is a sweet- heart and a pleasure to be around," said Egloff. Egloff said the Brahman breed are popular in hotter areas of the southeast and southwest because the bulls are very heat tolerant and 'drought resistant. "Their large fie ppy ears act as radiators to help them cool," said Egloff. "They will sweat where other cattle pant." Egloff said the breed produces a leaner beef than most European breeds.

MO;'SCONS,GNMZ r COM By Diane Gliclewell Monroe County Schools Technology Director Valerie Mercer said that soon Mary Persons will no longer be a "No Service" zone. She told the board the school system will ac- cept a bid from Southern Electricom Company of LizeUa to upgrade tech- nology at Mary Persons. Mercer said the com- pany will pull existing infrastructure out of the ceiling at Mary Persons over Thanksgiving and Christmas breaks. She said the work is being done as part of remodeling certain halls at Mary Persons. She did not announce the amount of the winning bid. Mercer said most of the existing technology infxa- structure at Mary Persons has been in place since the building was built in 1984. She said there were four bidders on the project but only two met the school system's specifications for the job. "We will lease fiber through Forsyth Ca- bleNet," said Mercer.

Walker's racers won four national championships, and 38 racers reached the podium with 11 first place, five second place and 11 third place finishes, along with 11 holeshot awards. The winners from Culloden combined for more than an hour of podium interviews on RacerTV. Above, one of the winners was Tyler Foster of Culloden, who was the 450 C Champion, never trailing the race. His family moved to Monroe County three years ago so Foster could train with Walker. From left are Justin Boyd, MotoX's strength and cardio trainer, motocross trainer Timmy Badour, Foster and Matt Walker. Foster dedi- cated the race to his late grandmother, who passed away two months earlier while he was qualifying for the race.
