Despite the rain, 40 people still participated in the 10th Annual Oblong Spooktacular 5K Saturday. Nearly 100 registered men, women, and children were poised and ready for the event, but the number who crossed the finish line was much smaller, chiefly due to the continual rain. Those who did finish ranged in age from 7 to 76.

Lady Maroons down Neoga in two sets
Gaining some momentum heading into the postseason was the goal and Robinson High School's volleyball team was able to accomplish that Thursday night (Oct. 24).

The Lady Maroons celebrated Senior Night at RHS with a sweep of visiting Neoga in a non-conference contest, 25-20, 25-21.

"It's always great to get a win on Senior Night," RHS head coach Eric Dean said. "(Seniors) Addy Paddock and Katy Powell have both worked hard for six years in this program and I am so proud of both of them. Addy had a very good night tonight, finishing with 15 digs. Unfortunately, Katy's season ended a few weeks ago with a back injury. They both have bright futures ahead of them."

First things first. My name is Cindy Roberts Hayes. My house is here in Robinson. I graduated school here at RHS and was born and raised in the country at Porterville.

I want to challenge some of you. Answer me this. Does our county want the poor in our area?
