It is post-season all-star time in high school softball. The region 1-AAA all-star teams have been released. Dodge had three players on the first and three more on the second team. Dodge’s coach Amanda Mullis was named coach of the year and Haley Holloway was named pitcher of the year.
Coach Mullis lead the Lady Indians to a 29 and 10 record and their third straight region championship. This one was much tougher than the first two as Pierce and Tattnall County both joined Dodge in Columbus in the final eight. This is the best region in South Georgia by far.
Holloway had a great 2014 on the mound for the Lady Indians. The sophomore had a 15 and four record through region championship with an earned run average (ERA) of 0.94. She pitched a pair of shutouts in the region tournament. She pitched a complete game, three hit shutout over Tattnall County in the region championship game. [Full Story »]
At Dodge County High School (DCHS), getting people involved with student life is among the top priorities of the faculty and recently $44,000.00 was granted by AT&T to open doors for more students to do just that.
This money grant, which was written by Dr. Susan Long, DCHS principal and Dr. Melinda Dennis, Dodge County school superintendent, will be invested in several different programs. The Missoula Children’s Theatre program will come to Dodge County schools and serve as a workshop for the county’s future actors. Then, the students will put on a production of their own and there is a possibility that the workshop participants will be treated by going to see a major production. [Full Story »]
I got a recorded phone call from Pat Boone doing a commercial for David Perdue, on behalf of the 60 Plus Association. I took his advice. Remember those polls showing Michelle Nunn Martin leading in the Senate Race?
“Ever notice that leftism is race obsessed?”
Yes, I have. It’s their stock in trade.
Wyoming has only one four-year college. It has had only one House member since statehood. Cynthia Lummis (R) is a good one. Her House district is the entire state of Wyoming.
Oregon voted no by around 2 to 1 on drivers licenses for illegal aliens. Maybe liberal-dominated Oregon has seen the light but I doubt it. Good for Oregon on this one.
Bumper sticker of the day-Keep your doctor and fire your Democrat Senator.
Remember the “Republican War on Women?” Remember abortion Barbie Wendy Davis (D) running for governor of Texas? Polls on October 25 showed her running 12 points behind-among women. Polls were fairly accurate this time on Ms. Davis.
In Georgia in 2008, the white vote (65% of the total) went 76% McCain and 23% Obama. The black vote (30% of the total) went 98% Obama and 2% McCain. Somehow whites are the racists? [Full Story »]
