SW needs win, G’wood defeat to extend season

November 8, 2012

After a gutwrenching loss to Monahans this past week, Sweetwater’s football team must have two things happen Friday in order to get into the playoffs for the first time since 2008.
First, Sweetwater must defeat Wylie, which not only has clinched a playoff spot but is the No. 2-ranked team in the state with a 9-0 record and is 4-0 in district play. Also, Sweetwater must hope that Snyder (1-3, 3-6) beats Greenwood (2-2, 6-3) which would make Sweet-water the district’s No. 3 team with a 3-2 record.

RPMH hosts diabetes support group meeting

November 8, 2012

Rolling Plains Memorial Hospital (RPMH) held their diabetes support group meeting on Tuesday afternoon, November 6, 2012 in the hospital classroom. The presentation given was "Reading Food Labels", given by Tasha Baxter, the Consumer Family Science agent with the Nolan County Extension Office.
When looking at the ingredients on a food label, they are usually listed by the heaviest and then descend. Diabetics should be wary if sugar or another form of sweetener is close to the top of the list.

And at the Sweetwater Reporter, we decided to join in on the fun and ask our Facebook friends what their thoughts were--as the coverage continued, when Ohio was projected for the incumbent president, and when the dust slightly settled on Wednesday morning.
