Melanie Martinez to perform at local Sweetest Day event

October 14, 2013

Melanie Martinez, a contestant from The Voice, will perform at the Municipal Auditorium with Kimberly Dunn and Kristine Mirelle Saturday, Oct. 19 for the Sweetest Day Benefit concert.
Martinez finished at #5 on last Fall’s season of The Voice as part of Adam Levine’s team. Levine said many times on the show that he liked her because her voice and style were unique. Her uniqueness was obvious from the beginning as she played a tambourine with her feet while she played the guitar, singing Britney Spears’, “Toxic” with her own softer, Indie approach to the song.

BCMRC to meet today

October 14, 2013

Pictured (standing, far right) is Scott Davis, retired United States Air Force and Sweetwater citizen, who taught “Verbal Judo” to members of the Big Country Medical Reserve Corps.
In a natural or man-made disaster where many citizens, especially children are involved, “Verbal Judo” is the means for calming a potentially volatile situation before it can manifest into physical violence.

Tigers run past Sweetwater

October 14, 2013

SNYDER — In sports, as in life, you have to take advantage of opportunities for success whenever they come your way.
In Friday’s District 4-3A opener, Sweetwater reached Snyder’s red zone on its first two possessions of the game — and came away with nothing to show for it in a scoreless first quarter.
The Mustangs also forced Snyder to punt on its first series, but the Tigers took the lead with a 16-play, 93-yard scoring drive that began at the end of the first period and resulted in a 1-yard touchdown run by D’Vincent Allison.

SNYDER — It wasn’t easy. It never is at Snyder.
But after allowing the host team to tie the match with a decisive Game 2 win, Sweetwater rallied to win Friday’s District 4-3A volleyball match in four games by scores of 25-18, 14-25, 25-22, 25-22.
With the victory, Sweet-water (2-3, 11-18) broke out of a fourth-place district tie with the Lady Tigers, who fell to 1-4, 10-16.
“I didn’t think we played all that great, but it’s always hard over there,” Sweetwa-ter coach Liz Miller said. “It was a big game for both teams. I’m glad we were able to come out on top.”
