  • OUT to LUNCH by Bethel Poston: Zaxby's exZactly the choice for four generations

    This “Out to Lunch” adventure at Zaxby’s in Midtown involves four generations of the Poston family.

    My wife Carol and I live in Midtown Heights. We pass Zaxby’s every time we go to Kroger, Lowe’s, church, Kingston, Harriman, Interstate 40, Knoxville and other places going east.

    I’ve had Zaxby’s on my “Out to Lunch” prospect list for some time, waiting for an opportunity to pop up.

    We were excited when our grandson Brady, wife Toni and our 8-month-old great-grandson Benjamin, said they would like to spend their vacation at our house.

    But for untimely penalties and snap miscues, Harriman might have played a spoiler’s role Friday evening.

    The Blue Devils were close to springing an upset on a night when Oneida dedicated its newly-renamed stadium and celebrated homecoming. Instead, they committed 10 penalties for 60 yards, saw drives stall twice in the red zone, and saw the Indians walk away with a 13-7 win.

  • Battle in trenches Blue Devils’ key

    This evening the Harriman Blue Devils will travel to Oneida to face the Indians.

    For a team with a 1-2 record, many wouldn’t think of that as successful, but thus far Harriman has performed above expectations. With a young in experienced team, the Devils have actually exceeded them.

    Harriman will have to continue the trend and build upon the successes of the season. While building for the future, the Devils may find the present may be brighter.
