Pirates secure third straight MSC Football title PDF Print E-mail

    The Pirate Football Team (6?1 and 5?0 MSC) secured at least a share of their third consecutive Mid?Southern Conference Championship by outlasting Salem on Homecoming & Senior Night last Friday.  
    The Lions (4?3 and 3?2 MSC) held the Pirates to 165 yards of total offense and dominated the time of possession but failed to score offensively against the Pirates’ defense.  
    After a scoreless first half, which included a 31 yard missed Salem field goal, the Pirates scored on their first possession of the second half, when senior Michael Baines capped a four play, 36 yard drive with a 22 yard touchdown run. The extra point try was blocked keeping the score at 6?0 until the Pirates gave up a safety to improve field possession with 2:21 left in the game.  
    The Pirate defense smothered the Lions' chances at a game winning scoring drive with solid defense causing Salem to turn the ball over on downs without positive yardage to win the game.  
    Pirate Pride Sports Broadcasting named seniors Michael Baines and Josh Graham Tumbletown Co?Offensive Players of the Game while naming the entire Pirate Defensive Unit the Tumbletown Co?Defensive Players of the Game, lead by Clay Daniel, Lucas Poteet and Eric Kruse.  
    The Pirates finish conference play this Friday when traveling to North Harrison (1?6 and 1?4 MSC) to take on the Cougars.  
    Pirate Pride Sports Broadcasting will go on the air live at 6:45 p.m for the scheduled 7 p.m kick?off.

Mans best friend could be a shelter dog PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 08 October 2009 00:00
    In conjunction with October being Adopt a Shelter Dog Month, your next best friend could be a shelter dog. There are over 10 million animals that go into shelters each year; for Washington County there are between 1,000 to 1,200 taken to the Humane Society of Washington County. With this many animals being taken to local shelters, we as a community need to help control the pet population by having our pets spayed or neutered as this would drastically help reduce the number of animals taken in to the shelter. With money being tight right now, it is hard to come up with an extra $100 to pay for a spay or  neuter. One of the perks of adopting from the shelter is the spay and neuter cost is included with the adoption fee, along with a rabies vaccination. At the Washington County Shelter the adoption fee for a dog is $55. For only $55 your new pet will be spayed or neutered,  receive a rabies vaccination and mircochipped for a safe return home, if lost. Think of this as money going to a charity, because, in fact, the money for adoptions goes into providing more animals a chance at a better life. Each animal that comes to the shelter is provided food, water and place to rest until that special someone comes to take them home.
    Talking with several adopters, they each have the same feelings of adopting from a shelter; they would never hesitate in adopting again. If you stop to think of the the possible life the dogs have had prior to being rescued or taken to the shelter, these dogs have had to find their own food, shelter and have had little or no contact with people. This being said, when a shelter dog becomes part of your family they are loyal and thankful to you for rescuing them.
