Tackled from behind, a Baron goes down. But he got up again, and again, and
The Barons of Manheim
Central handed Donegal its
first loss of the fall last
Friday, overwhelming the
Indians 39-14.
The usually formidable
Indian defense crumbled
Manheim receiver is a jump ahead of Donegal defensive
into confusion in the face of
Manheim’s surprise run-
and-shoot offense. All week
long, the Indians had been
practicing defensive man-
uvers against a wishbone
offense, the offense the
backfield as he pulls in a pass.
Manheim Central defeats Donegal
Barons had used in their
previous two games. By the
time Donegal figured out
how to cope with the new
offense, they were already

The Barons did most of
their scoring early, building
up a 27-0 halftime lead. In

ances and rejected a

The ban on burning in the
borough was lifted, allowing
the burning of leaves and
twigs in a confined area.
The burning, permissible
from Ocotber 1 to December

made necessary by the
escalating cost of trash
pick-up and the unavailabil-
ity of former refuse dump-
ing sites.

ordinance revising a pension
plan for three full-time
policemen. A resolution
authorizing borough sec-

study and council will
consider recommendations

vised to adopt an adverse
possession status.

ing’ to the Marietta
Restoration Associates for
their plans to utilize the
Union Meeting House. The
exterior has been restored to
a 95% completion while the
interior is still under
restoration. MRA may use
the building as they see fit.
The Marietta Jaycees
were given permission to
sponsor the 29th annual
Halloween Parade to be held
October 20, and the Donegal
Braves were permitted to
use Memorial Park to
practice football when elec-
tricity is needed.
The proposal to purchase
a second vehicle for borough
use was denied. ;
