FOOTBALL FRIDAY: Altoona-Midway at Uniontown (09/04/15)
While we would like to give you a comprehensive preview of Friday night's season-opening game between Altoona-Midway and Uniontown, there are two problems: 1) Everything you want and need to know about Uniontown appears in the article that ran in the 2015 Fort Scott Tribune Football Preview that appeared in this fine publication in Wednesday's edition, so there isn't anything to add about the Eagles (if you did not get a Tribune on Wednesday, copies are available at the office at 12 E. ...

Tiger soccer short on experience (08/28/15)
A familiar face will be back on the sideline for Fort Scott High School's soccer team this season. But he'll need a while to get to know his team -- and the players might need some time to get to know each other.

2's give the 1's good workout at scrimmage (08/25/15)
Possibly the best thing about Fort Scott High School's scrimmage at the practice field Saturday morning wasn't the way the No. 1 offense and defense played but how the No. 2's on both sides were able to give the No. 1's a challenge. "We tell our young guys, 'If you can compete against our No. ...
