Ribbon cutting

The Gatesville Chamber of Commerce, its Ambassadors, members of the city council and the business community turned out Saturday for a grand re-opening and ribbon cutting for the recently remodeled Gatesville Civic Center. Gatesville Mayor Gary Chumley (at right holding scissors) and city manager Roger Mumby do  the honors of snipping the ribbon as the rest look on. The gathering also featured a business expo that included some 40 local businesses with booths to introducethemselves and their products or services to the community.

Lady Eagles fall to late rally,

The Jonesboro Lady Eagles can’t be blamed if they were thinking “what if” after D’Hanis edged Coolidge, 48- 46, Saturday afternoon for the Class 1A Region IV championship. In the regional semifinals Friday in Austin, the Lady Eagles led much of game before- the Cowgirls pulled out a 39-35 victory.
