Pet Peeve For The Week: People who still keep talking on their cell phones even after the flight attendant has politely asked them to turn it off! Believe me, unless you’re the ruler of the free world your call is not that important!!
Last week the Spartans defeated the Loyalsock Lancers. It was an especially sweet success considering Loyalsock had their “spirit week” last week and dressed up one day as the Hughesville community wearing farmer and red-neck attire. After the win on Friday, my friend, Janine, said, “Well, it looks like the Hughesville community went to Loyalsock and we dressed up as winners!” Congrats boys! The Spartans will be hosting Bloomsburg this Friday. Game time is 7 p.m.

Remember; take the high road because the low road’s so crowded.
