Good afternoon. In the newsletter today: Personal time on Saturday got in the way of the newsletter being sent yesterday so your weekend edition is a day later than usual. In this one, I have coverage from Friday night’s Philomath football game against highly-regarded Junction City. Plus, my latest Three Things column covers a colorful mural, playing outside and recognition for the Frolic. And take a read about what the cross-country teams did Saturday down in Eugene.
Thanks for reading!
