  • Eagles' homecoming spoiled

    So much for an easy homecoming game.

    Jefferson County walked all over Bronson last Friday in a 54-0 blowout, spoiling the Eagles’ homecoming and dropping their record to 0-5 this season.

    From the start, it was all Tigers, all the time.

    Jefferson County quarterback Lenorris Footman tossed a 45-yard pass to David Crumaty to give the Tigers a quick 6-0 lead. The 2-point attempt failed.

    The Tigers added to their lead on their next posession with a 54-yard run by for another score.

  • Eden Langworthy breaks Top 15 on Internet

    From the moment you ring the doorbell, there is no doubt about what drives Eden Langworthy: his family and his music.

    The affable Langworthy greets guests in his bare feet and torn jeans. A tattoo in large ornate script says “Windy”, his wife of some 25 years and the person responsible for most of the words that flow from his brain to his fingertips as he writes songs inspired by those he loves and the life he lives.

  • Red Devils slam Umatilla

    The Red Devils then inserted their second and third string players along with freshman quarterback Austin Chipoletti.

    The Red Devil non starters played the entire second quarter and Chipoletti completed three straight passes on the last drive of the first half, hitting Kalen Penny for a touchdown. Chipoletti connected with Larry Debose for a two point conversion as the Red Devils held a 35-0 half time lead.

  • How I joined the mob, and what keeps me in

    My children were the first to blame. It was a way to keep up with them. Then Jenna McKenna, sports editor at the Chiefland Citizen, added to the blame when she introduced me to Mob Wars. A year later, I find that I am an addict–and I don’t want help.

    Facebook is my connection to the world.

    In the beginning, I spent way too much time saving the rainforest, raising money for St. Jude’s and playing Mob Wars.

  • Do we say thank you enough?

    It took my father’s unexpected death to make me truly realize how fleeting life is.

    It was then, at the age of 33, that I promised myself I would not let an opportunity pass to tell people how much they mean to me or thank them for their influence and inspiration on my life.

    For the most part I’ve held up to that promise over the years.

    I tell people Iee^love them more freely.
