FISD school board trustees were treated to an array of appetizers during last week’s tour of the newly renovated culinary arts department. Laura Craddick, head of the department, and her students prepared the tasty spread which featured roast beef sandwiches, hot seafood dip, macaroons, and more served in an Alice in Wonderland themed room.

Craddick said the remodel began in May with new countertops, new sinks and handwashing stations, a gas range with grill, convection oven, commercial refrigerator, stainless steel table, and an exhaust and fire suppression system.

A line of storms moved in Saturday evening, Oct. 13, bringing several confirmed tornadoes in both Freestone County and Corsicana. Reports began rolling in about 4 p.m. Saturday of a tornado sighting about eight miles northwest of Buffalo, southeast of Teague, moving at 30 miles per hour. Dew ISD officials opened the campus for area residents to take shelter. A tornado also reportedly touched down in Limestone County north of Mexia. Fairfield residents Kelly and John Salter were out running errands during the height of the storm warnings Saturday. While in Wal-Mart in Corsicana, they were instructed to take shelter. “Walmart made us go to the middle of the store for about 10 minutes,” Kelly Salter said. “I was actually a little perturbed to start with, ya know? If I wanna take a chance and get my stuff and get out of there it should be my choice.

In a relatively close victory, Fairfield Eagles beat Palestine Wildcats Friday night, securing their fourth win of the season with a final score of 17-14. The game against Palestine started poorly for Fairfield, with Palestine gaining a quick lead in the first quarter. “Palestine was big and fast,” said Bachtel. “They did a lot of blitzing off the edges. We are going to work on the challenges that gave us. We caused four turnovers which helped us out during the game. In the future, we need to make their mistakes hurt them more.” A stalemate ensued between both teams throughout the rest of the first half, as well as the better part of the second half.

“We came across a team we underestimated,” said senior Cody Ferguson. “We had to play the best football we could to help my team come out on top.”

After securing their third win of this young football season against Athens, Fairfield plans ahead for the upcoming game against the Palestine Wildcats.

“Palestine is big and fast,” said Head Coach John Bachtel. “They had a big win over Rusk Friday night and they are as close to a rival as we have now.”

The game begins at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 21, at Palestine High School stadium. This is the Eagles fourth game of the season and only their second away game.

Fairfield beat the Athens Hornets last Friday in Athens, with a final score of 53-28.
