Despite solid outings from Nash Guthery and Joseph Rainey, the Gorman Panthers came out on the short end of their District 9-A Division I opener on Friday, falling by a 6014 clip in Gordon. With the loss, the Panthers fell to 4-2 and to 0-1 in a district. Gordon improved to 6-0 and 1-0. All six teams in the 9-A race are above .500 heading into Week 7 of the 2022 season.
The City of Gorman is looking sharp! Thank you to the people that are mowing their yards and cleaning up! If you are unaware of our ordinance concerning property conditions, it may be seen in its entirety on the City of Gorman webpage. Take a look around your area. Do you have the nicest yard on the block? Why not? Show some hometown pride! There has been some confusion about chipping. The City does have a chipper and periodically, when there is time, the City crew will answer requests from residents to stop curbside to use the chipper on stacked limbs near the street. However, they cannot chip large branches and do not offer tree removal. A limb four inches in circumference is about as large as they can handle.
