  • Sheckles-Rogers team winners again in Buttermilk Days Backyard Grill Off

    Stan Mullins feigned protest of the judges’ decision in Buttermilk Days Backyard Grill Off Saturday.

    “They finished next to last!” he joked.

    It was true, but only because there were just two teams — his and Chris Hodges’ versus that of Joey Sheckles, Wayne Rogers and Julian Rogers.

    “We won again!” Sheckles shouted when the judges, Muncie McNamara and Leslie Calbert, tallied the results and announced the winners.

  • Buttermilk grillers to compete Saturday

    Buttermilk Days is still almost a month away, but people can get a foretaste of the festival this weekend during the summer barbecue competition Saturday.

    The annual Buttermilk grill-off will feature at least eight teams that will compete in four categories: beef, pork, poultry and vegetable. Judges will decide, but for $5, guests can also sample the food and decide which they like best.

    It all comes down to “bragging rights,” City Councilman Bill Sheckles said.

  • Prayers for Tariq

    The stands were empty. The people had joined the players on the field, holding hands in a large circle. And when the horn sounded for a touchdown and it grew quiet again, the sound of sobbing could be heard as family members and friends of Tariq Armour held each other and remembered him.
