PAGE 4 unlor inutes am The Florala Junior Wildcats opened the 1973 season in Hart- ford last Thursday night. The young cats played a great game out playing the Hartford Jr team statistics but lost on the scoreboard 12-8. Mistakes late in the game kept the cats from claiming a victory they de- served. None of the young cats had ever played in a Jr. High School football game before. This game was valuable experience for them. Offense starters in the game against Hartford were John Ball, Rusty Boles, ends; Steve Franklin, Quarterback; Charles Moody, halfback; Jerome Moody, halfback; Jerome Brooks, fullback; John An* t~ony, tailback. John Anthony was the leading ground gainer and scored the touchdown and the conversion. The defense was lead by John Ball and Mike Spicer at ends; Craig Mattbews, Randy Moore at tackles; Kim Jordon at nose guard; John @,nthony, Charles Moody, Raymond "Bug" Adams at linebacker, and Herman Ow- ens, Jerome Brooks, Rusty Boles at halfbacks. Several new faces are now on the scene and will be battling for positions. The next sche- duled game is against Andy Jr. Bulldogs in Florala next Thurs- day night. The Jr. Cats are coached by Dale Odom and Gary 'Woodham. Give these young 'Cats your support. Attend the home game this Thursday night.

The dumping of household garbage in anything other than a landfill is in violation of State Health regulations and of City Ordinance. Won't you please cooperate by placing hold garbage in the landfill now in operation by the City of Florala. The old garbage dump ks still open fDr disposal of lumber products (trees, limbs, scrap metal (refrigerators, stoves, etc.) but positively no household garbage! The city officials are making an all-out effort to comply with state rl disposal of garbage and they simply must have the cooperation of every citizen. A monthly fee or permit of only $1.50 is required for dumping in the landfill. your own dumping, this perfectly alright as long as you meet the requirements or your garbage on the street for regular pick-up in your section of town. Members of the Florala Police Department will be patrolling the landfill and g~ and violators will be fined. If any of you see anyone violating these regulations, report them to the po Let's help keep Florala clean.
