Cherokee County Herald - - VIEWPOINTS -

An en­thu­si­as­tic crowd, in May, wel­comed For­mer Alabama Crim­son Tide Quar­ter­back Greg McEl­roy as the speaker for the re­cent Chero­kee County Chap­ter “Alumni and Friends” of the Univer­sity of Alabama Alumni As­so­ci­a­tion Ban­quet held in the Chero­kee County Cham­ber of Com­merce meet­ing room.

McEl­roy, as many may re­mem­ber, was a mem­ber of the 2009 Tide Cham­pi­onship Team.

The Chero­kee County Com­mis­sion re­cently hon­ored the Spring Gar­den School Girls’s Bas­ket­ball Team and Coach Ricky “Rat” Austin for an out­stand­ing sea­son.

The com­mis­sion pre­sented res­o­lu­tions to the team and to Coach Austin dur­ing the Mon­day, May 23 reg­u­lar meet­ing of the com­mis­sion.

“Our first pre­sen­ta­tion will be the Spring Gar­den Girls’ Bas­ket­ball Res­o­lu­tion,” said Chero­kee County Com­mis­sion Chair­man/Pro­bate Judge Kirk Day. “We had to wait a lit­tle bit be­fore we did this be­cause a lot of you were par­tic­i­pat­ing on other teams in­clud­ing the soft­ball teams.”

As stated in the res­o­lu­tion, the Spring Gar­den Girls Bas­ket­ball Team, un­der the lead­er­ship of Coach Austin, fin­ished this past year’s sea­son with an im­pres­sive 31 wins and four losses.

The Spring Gar­den Girls Bas­ket­ball Team was this sea­son’s Chero­kee County Tour­na­ment cham­pi­ons and the Lady Pan­thers were this year’s area cham­pi­ons, the res­o­lu­tion stated.

The Spring Gar­den Girls Bas­ket­ball Team, ac­cord­ing to the res­o­lu­tion, was also this years’s sub re­gional cham­pi­ons and this year’s North­east Re­gional Cham­pi­ons.

“Thee Spring Gar­den Girls Bas­ket­ball Team de­feated the Lyn­don High School Pa­tri­ots by a score of 64-38 to win the 2016 Class 1A State Cham­pi­onships,” the res­o­lu­tion stated.

The P25 Ra­dio Sys­tem got an­other boost re­cently with $23,500 in grant funds se­cured through lo­cal leg­isla­tive rep­re­sen­ta­tives and the Coosa Val­ley Re­source Con­ser­va­tion and De­vel­op­ment Coun­cil.

The funds were se­cured through a co­op­er­a­tive ef­fort of the Coosa Val­ley Re­source, Con­ser­va­tion and De­vel­op­ment Coun­cil, Se­na­tor Phil Wil­liams, Se­na­tor Ger­ald Dial and State Rep­re­sen­ta­tive Richard Lindsey.
