A special message to our subscribers

March 11, 2011 by Randy Keck

I am writing this message to let our subscribers know that you will probably not receive your paper in the mail this week until Saturday.

The United States Post Office in Aledo has implemented a new system that caught us off guard this week. I was informed two weeks ago that under the new system, we would not be able to mail our papers after 4 p.m. on Thursday. When our papers arrived at the post office at about 3:30 yesterday, the post office refused to accept the mailing because it was after 3 p.m.

This is yet another in a growing list of new procedures over the last year that make one thing entirely clear: the post office does not want our business.

The Aledo Ladycats basketball team fell to Stephenville 59-52 in overtime tonight in the area championship game in Mineral Wells. Aledo lost senior star Logan Mittie to a knee injury early in the game.

Azle didn’t go down easy

By E. R. Bills

James Albritton - Saltforkimages.com: Aledo junior midfielder Kyle Underwood controls the ball against Azle in action on Tuesday, Feb. 15.In recent years the Azle Hornets had been something of a doormat for the Bearcats in district play, but Tuesday night they were clearly ready to change that. They attacked quickly and, within the first minute, had their first corner and first shot on goal–but senior goalkeeper Justin Breshears was not in the mood. He slapped the ball away authoritatively and it was cleared by sophomore defender Willie Maloney.

Ladycat Playoff Basketball Bracketology

February 17, 2011 by Steve Keck

Anything can happen in the playoffs. Just ask the Brenham Cubs in the 2010 football season. They were the highest ranked team behind Aledo in Class 4A going into the football playoffs. They lost in bi-district.

With four teams making the playoffs in each district, the Texas UIL divides the 164 teams making the playoffs into four Regions. Aledo is in Region I. Within the 32 teams in Region I, the teams are divided into a bracket with the top half containing 16 teams and the bottom half having 16 teams. The winner of the top half plays the winner of the bottom half for the right to represent their region at the State Basketball Tournament in Austin on March 3 and 4.
