September 4 Page 3A i~iiiiiiiiiiiiii!ii!iii!iiiiiiiii~ AREl3orter The upside of the Bulldogs having a rebuilding year is that we get exciting games again like we did on Friday. Those poor Red Devils must wonder if they're ever gonna beat us again. If not this year, then when? It looked like we were gonna blow it. I was madder than Hillary Clinton at a cross-stitch convention when Jackson pulled even and tied the game late in the fourth quartet. They had all the momentum, and we looked whipped. In fact, if we hadn't managed two first downs by the fuzz on the football, seffing up Rico Harden walk-off touchdown with 19 seconds left, then I'm bet- ring we lose that game. Time was not on our side, and it wouldn't been over for us in overtime. Alas, MP coach Brian Nelson is sometimes called the luckiest coach in Middle Georgia, and his boys found a way to win again on Friday night. Meanwhile, on Saturday night, I was a liffle disappointed not to see our own Malik Herring playing for the Bulldogs against Vanderbilt. His mother said on the Reporter Facebook page that Malik suffered an ankle injury in warmups. Hopefully he'll return for the home opener Between the Hedges this Saturday. Speaking of that, y'all need to come off that dollar and subscribe to this here fmh wrapper before Friday to have a chance to win four FREE lower-level tickets AND a parking pass to the Arkansas State-UGA game on Sept. 14. Peace out! Don't fence m in: Stockbridge man escapes injury in -75 wreck Deputies searching for runaway 12-year-old A helicopter, a drone and bloodhounds were being deployed on Tuesday afternoon to try to find a 12 year old girl who ran away from home in the Smith Road area. Sheriff Brad Freeman said they think the girl is in the woods but they haven't been able to find her as of press time. The girl goes to a special needs school in Macon that was out of classes on Tuesday, said Freeman. She got into an argument with her mother and left the home, said Free- man. The sheriff said they found the girl on lohnstonviUe Road during a previous time that she ran away. A Stockbridge man escaped serious injury when he crashed his Honda Civic into the black fence in front of Tiff College Drive on Tuesday. Taylor Green was driving south on 1-75 to school in Warner Robins when he lost control and spun into the faux wrought iron fence along Patrol Road in front of the Tiff College campus, doing major damage to his vehicle and the fence. Green said he was tired and may have dazed off. Above, Forsyth police Maj. George Foster talks with Green after the wreck. Auto. Home Life Medicare Supplements 20t9 Cancer.
