If you wish to have anyone else included in the photo, you will be charged regular advertising rate. While we strive for accuracy, sometimes mistakes occur. If it is the mistake of the newspaper, the photo and accompanying information in its corrected form but without additional changes, will be re-run at no charge. Mistakes, however, must be of a signifcant nature as determined by management and have a significant bearing on the event.

On Tuesday night, when GHS Band Night coincided with Junior High Night, the crowd was “unbelievable,” according to head volleyball coach Rickey Phillips, whose team swept the visiting Connally Lady Cadets, 3-0. “It’s a great setting for high school volleyball to walk into a gym like that and have very few empty seats,” Phillips observed.
