October 30, 2019 Mr New AD might want to take a closer I k: at your Volley Dogs and find out why so many players sat out in protest instead of playing in the playoffs. Pull,them to the side and ask them it needs to be exaosed. 58 Love how quick the commis- sioners voted for themselves a raise but spent more than $20,000 of our money on a study, and still don't give their employees onel Replace them! voles: 33 R porter Man, Towaliga Tina and I are enjoying this Cooler weather, and even the rain. After the drought of September and October, it will be a while before I complain about rain again. Thank you Jesus. It would be nice if we could blame the second-half rain for our Bulldogs' loss to West Laurens on Friday. But we can't. The Raiders were just better this year --- much better. Speaking of trying not to complain about things, it would be a good time to re- member that our Bulldogs went five years without losing a game in Region 2-AAAA. That's pretty darn special. on the street is that Coach Nelson had to take care of a few attitudes on the team after Friday loss, and may have even quit the team. That MAY make it harder for the Bulldogs to beat Perry and Howard in our season games that will determine whether we can get a home playoff game. On the other hand, some- times the removal of some attitude problems can improve morale to the point that the team plays better even without a few "star" players. We shall see on Friday.

Gossip doesn't help and only makes a bad situation worse, voles: 6 By Will Davis No one was injured when a lamp caught fire in a room at the Holiday Inn Express in Forsyth on Saturday; Oct. 26. Forsyth firefighters and police offers were dis- patched to the Holiday Inn Express around 10:30 a.m. on Saturday after a guest reported a fire in Room 327. Officer Jer- emy Malone was talking to hotel employee Erika Tolbert when he saw a female hotel employee running upstairs in a panic on the security video stream. Malone found the woman and she told him she was going to the fire in Room 327. Forsyth police Cpl. Kim Barnett ) began making sure other guests were evacuating while Malone went to the fire. There, Malone found a city firefighter standing by the door. The fireman said he wasn't going inside because there was a fire inside. Malone gave the fireman his flashlight to see if anyone was inside, because the power was out. The fireman found a small fire on a lamp inside the room. He grabbed an ice bucket, filled it with water on the ground from the hotel sprinkler system, which was on, and doused the lamp fire. The hotel said that a Robert Stefanowicz had reserved the room for some of his employees. The fire was thought to be accidental. Daylight Savings Time is coming to an end.
