New Scoreboard Up At Bandy Gym In Dalton

Monday, January 13, 2014 - by Bob Beavers

Workers from Fair Play completed installation of the new seven-foot scoreboard at Dalton State’s Bandy Gym Sunday evening.

The new LED board, sponsored be Dalton Utilities, represents completion of the gymnasium’s extensive remodeling, funded by private donations to the school’s athletic department.

“We wanted to have something that was impressive to make a statement about our athletic department, our school, and the direction we are headed,” said Derek Waugh, director of athletics.  “We cannot thank Dalton Utilities and Avery Hendrix of Fair Play for making this possible.”

Bandy Gym is the home of Roadrunner volleyball and competition cheer. It is also an alternative practice site for basketball. In addition, the school’s intramural sports make use of the facility.

“I think this addition to Bandy Gym will really help the seven second test for not only athletic recruits but also other students considering Dalton State,” said Mr. Waugh.

Set Up A Council On Love, Not A Council On Hate - And Response

In Mayor Berke's April 19 version of the Berke Bulletin, he announced plans to establish a Council on Hate and indicated a focus on tolerance. I beg of him to reconsider that plan. One problem in Chattanooga and in other places in America is that there are some people who have already established an informal version of a Council on Hate. I suggest that a more productive plan ... (click for more)
