    • Re- rack weights and put them in the proper order. It speeds up everyone’s gym time with much less frustration and reduces chances for finger injuries.

    • Don’t share your sweat. If you sweat like a faucet, bring a clean towel and wipe down the equipment after you use it.

    Gallatin downs Carroll, 4-2

    Gallatin County picked up its first win of the season, defeating Carroll County, 4-2, Thursday. Carroll head coach Jimmy Ray said his team lacked enthusiasm, which was kind of disappointing since it was a district game at rival Gallatin. 

    The Panthers managed just two hits against the Wildcats. Ray said there were a couple other hard hits in the game, but they were hit right at the Gallatin defense.

    Tech-savvy students are redefining the definitions of “homework” and “schoolwork.”  Traditionally, students learn in the classroom and reinforce their learning at home through homework.  A new movement called “blended” or “flipped” learning is turning the old model on its head. 

    “Blended learning means that you blend some direct teaching with computer-based activities,” Kathryn Winn Principal Gerda Wise said.
