What would the community as a whole like to see happen with Downtown Main Street Guymon?
This question has been posed by Main Street Board and Design Committee Member, Chris Urias and other Design Committee Members who would like to see a uniform appearance to the downtown businesses.
The state of Guymonâs junior and senior high athletic programs has drawn great concern as of late. And a large group of citizens attended Monday nightâs Board of Education meeting at the junior high Science Annex.
Lance Kemp spoke for the group, and addressed several issues, starting with the recent basketball coaching vacancies. Tim Hofferber and Tyler Chapman recently resigned their coaching duties but are remaining at the school in other capacities.
Kemp wanted to know about the hiring process.
âIt harkens to a time past,â as Dr. Sara Richter says. âThis Place Matters Tourâ is an interesting afternoon tour of Guymon homes and buildings with a significant historical past. The homes featured originate in the early 20th century and are chosen because of their interesting history. The date of the tour is April 29, and this sharing of our local heritage is a program given by Main Street Guymon.
Amarillo television station KFDA NewsChannel 10 Media is thrilled to announce the upcoming switch to a High Definition signal from the Guymon Translator. Recently, the translator was taken off the air in order to install new equipment. The original analog Channel 59 will no longer exist.
For the Guymon girls soccer team No. 9 ranked Heritage Hall was a tough challenge in just their second game. That challenge was met head on, and for the first 15 minutes the Tigers were able to hold them scoreless. Throughout the rest of the game though the Chargers would score plenty in their 7-0 win.
Heritage Hall took control of the game early on. A majority of the possessions were in the Tigerâs defensive end and they had plenty of scoring chances. For the first fifteen minutes the Tigers kept them at bay and held them scoreless despite their ranking.
It took 100 minutes of play Friday night at Memorial Stadium for the first boys soccer home game to decide a winner against Heritage Hall. The double overtime game had as much high speed action as a NASCAR race. For the Tigers Friday night would not be the night that they would claim their first district win, falling to the Chargers 2-1.
All week coach Mike Taylor has been working with his players on a fast-paced game in order to prepare themselves against their tough opponents.
