Sweetwater Reporter to host Chamber Coffee

January 6, 2015

The Sweetwater Reporter will host this month's Chamber Coffee at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 7.
The Sweetwater Reporter was founded by C.E. Gilbert in 1881--the year Nolan County was organized, under the name "Sweetwater Advance." Later published as the "Nolan County Review," it was purchased in 1906 by John W. Millsapps, who modernized the operation. In 1911, Millsapps and his partner W.A. Perry, with the assistance of managing editor C.A. Wade, began publishing daily editions under the Sweetwater Reporter banner.

Pro Football Playoff Previews and Predictions

January 6, 2015

Next Week’s Matchups:

Dallas @ Green Bay

What to watch for:

Dallas will travel to Green Bay to face Aaron Rodgers and their dynamic offense. Green Bay has not lost at Lambeau Field yet this year. Dallas matches up well with Green Bay because they have a strong running game that can keep the clock running and keep the ball out of Green Bay’s hands. The weather might get the best out of Dallas as it is likely to be extremely cold. Green Bay’s offense will be looking to feast on a weak Dallas secondary.

Pick: Green Bay 31-24

Carolina @ Seattle

What to watch for:
