  • Fremont-Mills gets first district victory

    ESSEX - Score early and score often.

    That’s precisely what Fremont-Mills did as they defeated Essex/South Page Friday night 55-12 in 8-man District 8 football action.

    The Knights scored 34 points in the first half, 27 of which came in the first quarter of play, as they won their third game in a row.

    “It was a very physical game, but in the first half I thought we controlled the tempo and controlled all aspects of the game,” Fremont-Mills Head Coach Jeremy Christiansen said.

  • East Mills stays perfect with win

    MALVERN – The East Mills football team gave Westwood a lesson in hard-nosed, old school football on Friday.

    The Wolverine defense was once again dominant holding the Rebels to less than 100 yards rushing – the fourth time in as many games they’ve done so – as the offense slugged and muscled it’s way for 309 yards rushing in a 37-6 district win.

  • Strong second half carries Rams to 31-14 homecoming victory Friday

    It was a tale of two halves Friday night for the Glenwood football team.

    After spitting and sputtering for most of the first half, the Rams’ offense came to life in the third quarter to fuel a 31-14 homecoming victory over Perry.

    “We felt we kind of beat ourselves in the first half,” Glenwood head coach Cory Faust said. “I credit our coaches for making adjustments for the second half and the players coming out and executing.”

  • School District In Process Of Replacing Administrator

    Glenwood Superintendent Devin Embray said the district posted for the director of student services position Sept. 12 and will begin looking immediately for an interim replacement for Giangreco.

  • Shopkeeper, Boot Maker A 'Jill Of All Trades'

    When Keg Creek Boot and Saddle closes its doors later this year, it will mark the first time in at least 100 years Glenwood residents won’t have a local place to go for shoe repairs.

    Vickie Felos has owned and operated the unique business since purchasing it from Dan Elizondo in 1986. Originally housed in a building on the 500 block of Sharp Street, Keg Creek Boot and Saddle has been at its current location at 411 Sharp St. since 1992.

  • Ye Olde Homecoming

    Among those attending the 50-year class reunion in Glenwood this weekend will be a tall, slender woman with grey hair and kind eyes. She doesn’t live in Glenwood; in fact, she doesn’t even live in the United States.

    Judy (Nightingale) Bain attended Glenwood High School for one year. She was the school’s first female exchange student, arriving in Glenwood in August 1962 from her hometown of Truro, England.
