His Spartan teamhad a 20-6 homefield win on Friday night over Haysi. "Haysi always plays tough and Coach Dave Colley always has several special plays that can hurt So you have to play hard to stay on top," Hamilton said. Ethan Collins and Erikk Banks had combined to have their usual outstanding offensive games. Collins scored twice and Banks churned out 177 yards on 22 carries. Hamilton had a lot of praise for offensive linemen, center Ryan Rowe and tackles Dalton Sexton and Cody Mitchell who got the blocks that gave Collins and Banks the first opening they had to get outside where they then can use their speed to get and Tyler Mullins picked up the load in the second half. Mullins put Central up 20-14 with a 17 yard run near the nine minute mark of the third canto. Then late in the quarter Mullins threw a 25 yard pass to Adkins to add another td for the Warriors. Justin Stanley had a 27 yard td scamper in the final - Haysi 6 big chunks of yardage. Collins' speed and quickness was used early as on the first play from scrimmage Collins latched onto a Caleb Riner pass and weaved his way to the end zone. The play covered 64 yards. Nate Minor kicked the extra point for a 7-0 Spartan lead. A Collins 8 yard run in the second quarter put the Spartans up 13-0. Midway through the period the Tigers got a nice drive going that ended with a Zach Owens to Jeffery Bowen touchdown pass of 13 yards. The Spartan defense again turned in an outstanding game. The up front trio of Rowe, Sexton and Mitchell held upthe opposing team runners long enough for Banks 10 tackles, Nick Sturgill 7 and Dillion Meade 6 to make the tackles. Caleb Riner, who doesn't usually play on defense, was Comett with a two point port of coal by rail in the black conversion pass the game was diamond fields of southwest tied at 14. Virginia.

Owens was good on just 12 of 28 pass attempts plus two were picked off. Riner hit on 7 of 11 passes. Riner also was intercepted twice. The Spartans had 14 first downs to nine for the Tigers. Haysi had 17 rushes for 61 yards and gained 121 yards through the air. Eastside had 107 yards through the air and gained 259 yards on 48 rushing plays. Riner's two yard run and Minor's kick late in the fourth quarter put the final seven points on the board. The Spartans travel to Thomas Walker on Friday night. They will have to find a way to stop the running of Cody Cain, the Pioneers outstanding running back. nl MOTORISTS: Stop for pedestrians in the Library Crosswalk..

"I look forward to speaking with anyone willing to share Freezing vegetables by Donna Meade Family and Consumer Science Russell Co. Extension Office Freezing extends the shelf life of food. Blanching food before freezing prevents the enzymes in foods from affecting the quality of the foods during storage. Only vegetables can be blanched before freezing. If fruit is blanched, and then frozen, the fruit will become mushy after defrosting. Equipment Preparation Select containers that are designed for freezing food like freezer bags, plastic freezer containers, or canning/freezing jars. Containers should be moist- ure/vapor resistant to prevent '"freezer burn." Wash all con- tainers in hot soapy water. Discard any containers that are cracked or chipped. Rinse with hot water and let air dry on a clean towel or rack. Food Selection and Blanching Choose young, tender vege- tables or well-ripened fi'uits for freezing. Tomatoes may be cooked, pureed, or juiced before freezing. Wash, peel and trim away bruised areas. Cut into serving sizes, if desired, before freezing. Blanch all vegetables (except peppers and onions) to preserve quality. To blanch, place pre- pared foods in a metal strainer that fits into a large saucepan. Lower food into boiling water and begin counting the blanch- ing time. Use one gallon of water for each pound of firm vegetables (about 4 cups) and two gallons of water for each pound of leafy greens (about 8 cups). Don't add more vege- tables than suggested at one time, as larger amounts will lower the temperature of the water. Time and temperature are critical to destroying the product. \ enzymes thatcause spoilage.Place bags, ontainers, or Cool the blanched vegetables jars in the freezer\and store at by removing the vegetables from 0F (18C) or below. Be sure that the boiling water and immed- iately plunging them into ice water until cool. This process prevents the vegetable from overcooking and retains its color and nutrients. Remove the blanched vegetable from the ice water, drain, and dry thoroughly. your freezer tempei ture re- mains steady. FluctuatNn (fre- eze, thaw, refreeze) in tempera- ture will adversely affect the qu- ality of the food. When con- tainers are removed from the fre- ezer, thaw in the refrigerator or in a pan of cool running water. It is important to freeze vege- tables dry because extra moist- ure can decrease the quality. Packing and Storing the Food Pack the food in the ap- propriate freezer container. Al- low inch of headspace for dry food and 1 to 2 inches for food covered with liquid. After packing, wipe the top of each package clean. Seal airtight. When filling plastic storage bags, be sure the fruit is covered by the sugar syrup. Remember to "burp" the bag, to expel all of the air before you seal it. This will prevent freezer bum and keep the food from drying out.

Elmes will be available to meet with interested participants in the initial oral history aspect of the Foreman's Section House Park mural project at different times during the months of September, and October and November. Individuals or groups of friends or family members who have stories to tell and in- formation to share are encour- aged to participate.

Additional ses- sions on two Sundays will be offered at the Richlands First Elmes will utilize the accum- ulated material to design a mural for the wall adjoining the down- town Richlands park, and the preparation of the wall will begin in June of 2013, followed by the actual painting of the mural during July and August of next summer. Ellen Elmes and her hus- band, Don, have lived in Bearwallow on Jewell Ridge in Buchanan County for over forty years. In her artist statement, she reflects on her mural career with these words: "My mural painting experience of thirty plus years has proven to be a means of serving the visual voice of communities. The process of making a mural challenges me to translate spoken memories and insights from people in the community into visual stories. It is an exhilarating experience because I am uplifted by the pride and ownership that com- munity residents take in a work forged by truth, collective memory, and common journeys." on Friday night. The game, played at Carl Smith Stadium on the campus of UVa-Wise saw the Warriors put the game away in the second half. Coach David Scammell said, "We played hard in the first half. But mistakes, fumbles, missed defensive assignments cost in the second half." Scammell said some of the inexperienced guys are taking a little longer to learn.
