The contest was played at WCHS on Friday, Octo- ber 18. "Just a hard-fought game," Wilkinson County High Coach Kenneth Brown said. 'rhey scored early, and we just played catch up the whole game. We couldn't convert two-point conversions. But, it was a hard-fought game, offense and defense." Voorhies had a spectacu- lar game for the Wildcats even in a tough loss. He had 20 carries for 280 yards and three touchdowns, and com- pleted 11 of 16 passes for 180 yards with one TD and one interception and had seven tackles on defense. LaT)arion Peterson was held to 50 yards on nine carries, but he did have two touchdown runs. He also caught three passes for 32 yards with a TD.

The Far Corner Lake Mary & Fort Adams... by Rhonda M. Quirk Hunters Beware! The cooler weather has not dis- couraged the mosquitoes. The little bloodsuckers are buzzing about like bees right around dusk dark. The gold- enrod and ragweed are also in full force. Pollen is thick in the air. Make sure you have plenty of insect repellent and allergy medicine. We have received some rain but so far not enough to damage the roads. Regretfiflly, it is not al- ways natural conditions that cause damage to our roads, sometimes it is caused by carelessness of others. Often, folks enjoy mud riding and see it as harmless but our county roads are in such bad shape that a simple mud ride can make it impossible for others to even get home or an emergency vehicle to get in. I have learned a lot about snakes since moving to this area. We have a huge old oak tree in our backyard that is home to a 5 ft. speckled king snake and a 6 ft. chicken snake. They slither in and out of the tree and occasionally on to the deck and sometimes wander to the garden. They are considered good snakes, since they eat pesky rodents. Most of our friends and fam- ily members have grown used to these two snakes just hanging around. However, one of our friends, who just happens to be a doctor, (just saying of all people should have known better) was pre- paring a duck blind when he ran across a little copper colored snake. He thought this little snake might make a nice addition to our oak tree. He picked it up, put in Our County Is Too Beautiful For You To Litter Don't throw your trash and litter on our roadsides or in our creeks.

Needless to say, it is not living in our oak tree or anywhere else. Luckily, no one was bitten and we are one less copperhead here on the farm! The holidays are creep- ing upon us. Halloween will soon be here. The fall season is quite remarkable here. The red, orange and golden leaves of the mighty oaks are just starting to fall to the ground and the pecan branches struggle to hold up the clusters of pecans. The squirrels are busy hoarding the nuts for the winter, which in turn brings many birds of prey. The bald eagles and red tail hawks glide about by day and the horned owls by night. The many different legends attached to these birds of prey make them quite fascinating. Everyone has a different superstitious story to share about these mysterious birds.
