Bremen's dream run ends in OT

November 15, 2010

BREMEN — It was a game neither team deserved to lose, but someone had to.
Bremen’s football season came to an end Friday night when quarterback Nate Leeper was stopped a yard shy of the end zone on fourth down in overtime. As Rensselaer Central players rushed the field in celebration, Bremen fans stayed in their seats, wishing they could see just one more play.
No. 1 Rensselaer Central 35. Bremen 28.
“You’re the best team I’ve ever been a part of,” Bremen coach Bob Holmes told his players through tears. “You put Bremen football back on the map and there’s nothing to be ashamed of. “

November 15, 2010

PLYMOUTH — A family history of service is having an impact.
Veterans Day observance at Jefferson Elementary has traditionally included a message from a local Veteran. This year’s speaker is an everyday influence on the school’s students.
Custodian Kirk Clark interacts with the students at the school every day, and coming from a family full of Veterans — his father was in the Army (82nd Airborne), two brothers in the Marine Corp, one in the Air Force and one in the Navy — he’s inspired a whole new group of young people to service.
