Bulldogs squash Panthers, 29-14

Penalties at crucial times got the best of the Jennings County High School football team as they picked up their second loss of the season, 44-19, against Hoosier Hills Conference rivals New Albany.
New Albany quarterback Zach Donan came ready to play and in the first period alone he rushed a total of 22 yards within a three -minute span of the first quarter to give his team a 13-0 lead. Not to be outdone, Panther quarterback Connor Byram found paydirt from one yard out at the 3:31 point of the first period. Julian Johns had an 84-yard kick-off return for a touchdown to end the first quarter scoring for the Bulldogs.
The big story for the Panthers was penalties. While New Albany had 46 yards in penalties, the Panthers had accumulated 63 yards.

Editor's Notebook

Politics and Esther Williams

There was a funeral last week in North Vernon, closing a fascinating chapter in local history. Family and friends gathered to honor Elsie Marie Reeves Clarkson, who died Sept. 1 at the age of 93.
She hadn't lived in Jennings County for decades, but Elsie visited often and had plenty of family here. Thus the reason for her funeral and burial here.
"She was a good woman and a great mother," her son, Bill Clarkson, told me. "She always made each of us kids feel special and somehow did it so we were never jealous of each other."
Born and raised in Commiskey, Elsie was the daughter of Walter and Lottie Rogers Reeves.
