The Trion softball team swept Taylor County Wednesday afternoon in the first round of the Class A Public School state playoffs on the hill in Trion. With the win, Trion (21-6) advances to the state finals Oct. 30-Nov. 1 in Columbus.

In game one of the series, Kerrigan Ramsey’s two-run homerun in the bottom of the first inning was enough for a Lady Dog 2-0 win.

Trailing 2-1 in the fourth inning of game two, the Lady Dogs bats came alive as they exploded for a 13-2 win over the visiting Lady Vikings from Butler. Rayven Lawrence was the MVP of the game. Lawrence went 5 for 5 with a triple, homerun, three RBI’s and scored three runs. In all, Trion batters accounted for 18 hits in the game.  

Church Spotlight: Old Way Baptist Church

"The name of God is being blasphemed through laws and judicial rulings prompting gross corruption and immorality. Satan is marching in our streets. He is preaching in our churches. He is teaching in our schools and he is sitting in high places of government. What do you think all of this means to me and you here scripturally?" Pastor David Thompson thundered from the pulpit Sunday morning.
Thompson leads Old Way Baptist Church, 3155 Old Hwy. 27, Trion. He hopes he leads them to seeing that the person reading this column realizes that they could suddenly drop dead with a heart attack and instantly be face to face with God.
"Many people today are going to find that when life is over, they are not going to like the way it ends because they have failed to prepare themselves to meet God. This is not a game folks. It is real today. God has given us many chances to get it right. He sent His Holy Spirit to counsel with us. . . I am convinced God is saying to you and to me, to America, to the world . . . to prepare to meet thy God," he said. ". . . Our days here are numbered. . . .We are going to stand before God and give an account for how we lived."

Chattooga County residents who have a difficult time paying for basic health care have a new option.
Primary Healthcare Centers, a longtime provider of healthcare services in Northwest Georgia, has opened a clinic in Summerville. The clinic, which is open Tuesday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., is located in the Save-A-Lot shopping center on Ga. Hwy 27 North (next to Advance Rehab.)
“We had to do some remodeling, move in new equipment and get the offices ready, but we are very happy with the office,” said Sandy Matheson, community liaison with PHC. “Our landlord, Larry Howard, has been fabulous. We are excited about the office in part because we have plenty of room to expand.”
There are six examining rooms, including one for pediatric patients.
