Everyone has the right to feel safe in their community, on their school campus or at work.Â If you see someone being bullied, know that you have the power to stop it. It isnâ€™t always easy to stand up against the crowd, but that it is what it will to take to put a stop to bullying. In my previous articles we have covered that bullying is still an issue and the forms and signs of bullying. In this weekâ€™s article we will go over what to do if someone is being bulled and some of the lasting effects it could have.
In light of our upcoming celebrations for the 2011-2012 Homecoming: Basketball through the Ages, our athletic department would like to recognize Mrs. Mary Etta Bollier for her hard work, dedication, and encouragement to our school. Moyersâ€™ very own sweetheart, Mary Etta, has established deep roots in this mountain community and continues to invest in a school system that raised her just years before. She was a basketball star in her day, playing on a team that won 30 out of 33 games her sophomore year.
The Moyers Tigers spent the last week at the annual Coleman tourney.Â Up first for the Lady Tigers would be the Caney Cougars.Â The Ladies took to the court with desire but couldnâ€™t convert and fell behind 24-5 at the half.Â The Ladies recouped at half and came back out much more impressive scoring immediately and at the end of three it was 40-11.Â Caney had a tough inside game and the Lady Tigers battled hard.Â The much improved Lady Tigers showed good passing skills and moved the ball well, but fell short of their goal 49-13.Â
