Local Tea Party sues school system

Eighteen-year-old Rachel Hall’s dreams of going to college were in jeopardy after Sumner County voted to slash funding to its Educate and Grow scholarship from $1,800 to $300 a semester.
Sumner County inmates will soon be able to order at least four electronic cigarettes weekly as part of a commissary purchase of items such as food, clothing and toiletries not offered at intake.
There were 11 goals scored between the Beech and Gallatin High School boys’ soccer teams Friday night. In a game that was delayed an hour due to lightning, the Green Wave came out on top 6-5 in overtime in the District 9-AAA contest.
If there was a record for goals scored on corner kicks during a single game, the Station Camp High School boys’ soccer team may have shattered it on last Tuesday night in a 9-0 District 9-AAA win over Portland. The Bison scored five of their nine goals on corner kicks in the lopsided victory.
Due to sketchy weather conditions in Gallatin last Tuesday night, Beech and Gallatin faced off on the baseball diamond a little earlier in the day to avoid possible rain. The game started at 4 p.m. as opposed to 7 p.m. in hopes that the rain would hold off just long enough to get the game in. It did, and Beech pitcher Zander Jett limited the Green Wave to two hits in the 4-0 win over Gallatin.
Last Tuesday night’s District 9-AAA meeting between cross-town rivals Gallatin and Station Camp high schools wasn’t exactly an offensive showcase. It was very much a ‘grind it out, take what you can get and let the rest handle itself’ type of baseball game. In the end, it was ‘small ball’ that led Station Camp to a 3-0 victory over Gallatin.
