?    While many were preparing for the festivities of Halloween. The Pirates of Charlestown were preparing for a rematch of last year’s Sectional 23 semi-final round. Last year Heritage Hills traveled to Charlestown and took home the 42-24 victory.
    Last week the Pirates traveled to Lincoln City on Halloween night to face off with the Patriots of Heritage Hills. The Patriots boast the No. 3 defense in Class 3A.
    The 90 minute ride did not phase the Pirate faithful as the sea of blue was ready for the rematch. The Pirates worked the entire 48 minutes, never quitting and giving 110 percent for their second year head coach Jason Hawkins.
    The Pirates fell short on their road to the Sectional championship trophy as Heritage Hills took the 32-6 victory to advance. The Patriots (7-3) will face Edgewood (10-1) this Friday night for the Sectional crown. Edgewood took the 49-7 victory over Brown County for their right to advance to the Sectional championship.
    Charlestown finished the season at 7-4 and 5-1 in the Mid Southern Conference. The Pirates shared the conference title with the Lions of Salem.

?    During the recent months, when most of Charlestown was enjoying a relatively mild summer, Mayor Bob Hall was dreaming up ideas for expanding the annual Light-up Charlestown into a greater event. He would like Charlestown to be known as “Christmas City” and to become a holiday destination for families throughout the region.
    Mayor Hall told Charlestown’s assistant to the Parks Advisory Board and Beautification Committee member, Rhonda Davidson, “To begin with, I want a 40-foot Christmas tree in Greenway Park, for Christmas City.”
    Davidson went home and told her husband, Eddie, who took her outside, and said, “Do you see that flagpole? That’s 20-feet. That would be a really big tree. Go make sure 20 feet isn’t tall enough.”
    When questioned, Mayor Hall said, “No, 20 feet is not big enough. We need a 40-foot tree.” So, Davidson told her husband, and he decided he would figure out a way to do it.

?    Everybody loves Christmas and everybody is invited to participate in the events being planned for the Christmas City in Charlestown.
    It is just 3 weeks until Thanksgiving, which is the traditional weekend for lighting-up the city. Imaginations are filled with hankerings for a warm sandwich with Cocoa or a soft pretzel and hot cider to warm a nippy evening in the park.
    The Charlestown Beautification Committee (CBC) and city officials have joined forces as participants begin to swell with the excitement in the Spirit of Christmas.
    Charlestown’s assistant to the Parks Advisory Board and CBC member, Rhonda Davidson, would like to see a large response to the invitation for all homes in the city to be lit-up and decorated. She has also asked for any individuals with welding experience and a little time to spare to contact her for helping with the creation of the 40+ foot Christmas tree being assembled for display in Greenway Park, where the festivities will occur this year.
    Organizers are asking for anyone interested in providing Christmas music, and vendors wanting to sell food or drinks.
    For information, or to be added to the agenda and plans, contact Donna Coomer at 256-7126 or Rhonda Davidson at 256-3422.
    The residents of Charlestown proved what they can accomplish when they work together, during the storm aftermath in September. Think what we can do when we actually plan and pool our resources for the Holidays. Let’s light-up the skies above Charlestown!
    So dig out your Santa hats, stir your creativity; and help make plans to celebrate the Nativity.

?    The Charlestown Little Pirate Football League concluded their regular season with playoffs and a Super Bowl.  The action started on Saturday, October 18 at The Boneyard with the Junior and Senior teams competing in the playoff rounds.  
    The Senior teams were unable to hold off the teams from Madison in order to advance to the next round.  However, the Junior White Pirates did advance to play in the Super Bowl on Sunday, October 19.
    The Junior White Pirates were once again facing the Junior White Madison team.  Both teams knew each other well, as they had the same win-loss record at the end of the regular season. (Both teams had lost to each other earlier in the season). The game was hard fought, but the Pirates finished second.  They played hard and never gave up until the final buzzer sounded to end the game.  
    Both teams then took center field to be awarded their Super Bowl and Runner Up medals.
    All Star selection and practices will take place this week.  There is currently one game day scheduled against Paoli, at Paoli, on November 1.  The league is currently working very hard trying to get another game scheduled as well.  
    The end of the season Tackle Banquet has been scheduled and the dates are Senior Division, November 10 and Junior Division is November 12.  More information can be found on the website.
    Charlestown should be very proud off all their Little Pirate Football Players (Flag, Cheerleading, & Tackle).   
    If anyone has interest in becoming a part of the Charlestown Little Pirate Football League please contact Kimberly Wray or check out their website: www.charlestownlittlepiratefootball.com.
