“As a matter-of-fact, the two teams that played for the 1-A State Championship, we played them in back-to-back weeks,” he said. “That was Lamar and Lakeview.”
The team’s injury count didn’t help much, either.
“We had a lot of injuries,” said Cook. “No excuses, though: The next guy … Read the rest

Thank you, residents of Rimini, for sharing the solar eclipse with us in your community park.
We drove four hours from North Carolina looking for the perfect spot. You were it! And we weren’t the only ones. Cars with plates from Texas, New Hampshire and Pennsylvania somehow managed to find their way to Rimini, too.
Together, with the delightful young families already there, this made for a most enjoyable group of sky-gazers.
Best wishes to you, Rimini, and long may you enjoy eclipses!
