2015 off to strong start in construction

After a record-setting 2014, construction in Gatesville got off to another good year in 2015. The City of Gatesville issued 16 permits in January with a combined total of $3,638,700 in estimated construction cost. The new medical clinic across the street from Coryell Memorial Hospital led the permits with a cost of $2 million. Construction is underway on the clinic that will include a dialysis treatment center. The clinic will allow patients to receive dialysis without going out of town.

Off night costly for Tigers

Teams cannot afford an off night in the playoffs as the Oglesby Tigers learned Tuesday night. The Tigers had trouble fi nding the basket all night as they fell to the Abbott Panthers, 57-34, in the bi-district round played at Valley Mills.

Turnovers, missed free throws too much to overcome for Eagles

Turnovers and missed free throws were more than the Jonesboro Eagles could overcome Tuesday night in Valley Mills. The Eagles, the second place team from District 25-1A, fell just short of the Gholson Wildcats in the bi-district game. Gholson built a big lead and then held on for dear life before eking out a 59-55 win.
