Who’s News?

By Atmore News Staff

Big day
Wednesday will be a big day for Escambia County High School, as more than a half-dozen senior football players are expected to formally accept scholarships or partial scholarships, grants-in-aid and other offers made by an array of colleges, universities and prep schools from around the country. Recruiters and head coaches — many from Division I schools — have visited Atmore in the past month or so to evaluate the student athletes and to tender offers to those who impressed them most.
On the mend
Atmore Police Chief Chuck Brooks seems to be recuperating nicely from triple bypass surgery. He returned to work on a limited basis last week, when he attended a city council meeting and the funeral of PCI Police Chief Mike Reynolds. Chief Brooks admits he won’t be running any marathons anytime soon, but he has resumed administration of the city police department. Reports are that Capt. Kenny Sessions did a fine job of overseeing APD operations during the chief’s absence.
Wishes granted
Hats off to Atmore Rotary Club for delivering meals and wish list items to the Ronald McDonald House (RMCH) in Mobile recently. RMCH-Mobile has been open more than 20 years and has served almost 11,000 families. The food delivered by local Rotarians was donated and cooked by David’s Catfish House in Atmore and The Warehouse Market and Bakery. Drinks were provided by club members, who also donated Clorox wipes, laundry detergent, bottled water and other such items.
