A different type of football huddle was seen at Adams Central's Regional pep rally on Thursday night.
Superintendent Mike Pettibone, half-bald, but all-AC, told the crowd that when the Flying Jets were in the midst of a five-game losing streak, he promised to let the team members write their names on his head if they won a Sectional.
Last night, Pettibone made good on his pledge and sat while the boys gathered around and wrote away.
The Jets play at Sheridan tonight.
Decatur Street Superintendent Jeremy Gilbert said this morning that the latest reconstruction of the railroad crossing on S. 13th St. will be done today and the five-lane highway should be reopened to traffic between noon and 4 p.m.
Thirteenth St. is the right-of-way of two US highways, 27 and 33.
A report from Larry Carty, the North Adams director of transportation, facilities and grounds, at this week's school board meeting turned out primarily to be a discussion with the board over what repairs need to be done at Bob Worthman Stadium.
Money for the work will be included in the North Adams capital projects fund, but both Carty and the board agreed that finances dictate that not everything that needs to be done will be accomplished in the coming year.
