Hearne PTO Stepping into the gap

by Meliss a Freeman

Fall festivals are upon us

by Margaret Salvaggio
 
This past Sunday was the fall festival for St. Mary’s Catholic Church and all seemed to be a huge success. Raffle tickets were being sold and a spaghetti lunch was served inside the Parish Hall. If your taste buds wanted something different then outside under the many tents were different items that you could choose from. Fajitas, gorditas, tamales, and even the familiar hamburger were the choices. As people walked around the grounds of the church there were different setups for different games that could be played.

Eagles (0-5) vs. Franklin Lions (5-0) Eagles to open district play against Franklin Lions

by Bobby Batson

 

The Hearne Eagles will hit the road to open district play against their long-time foe Franklin this Friday night beginning at 7:30 p.m. It will be tough going for the Eagle defense as the Lions are ranked #3 in the state and have been handling opponents with relative ease thus far this season, averaging 55 points a game. This Robertson County rivalry dates back to early in the last century, with Hearne holding the overall lead, but Franklin has dominated the Eagles for the past decade. Last year, the Lions triumphed 61-0 and return six starters from that team.
