The Etowah, Tennessee, City Commission approved an ordinance to ban pit bulls Monday night. The ordinance singles out pit bulls as a dangerous breed with a strong fighting and chase instinct. The ordinance grandfathers in existing pit bulls but bans new dogs. Existing owners will have to register their animals with identifying photos, post “beware of dog” signs, obtain $100,000 in liability insurance, keep dogs muzzled on short leashes when outside of the home and keep them confined indoors or in a locked pen or kennel at home.
The Cedartown Bulldogs had a great game offensively Friday Night against the Pickens County Dragons but the Bulldogs were unable to solve the mystery of the Pickens County Offense as they put up 54 points in the contest against the Bulldogs defense, with Pickens County Winning the game by the score of 54 to 35!
The Bulldogs led at halftime by the score of 28 to 27, thanks largely to Nick Chubb’s 4 TD’s and over 250 yards rushing. The Dawgs received the second half of kickoff and drove to near the Dragons 30 yard before being stopped on 4th down. The Dragons then had a quick drive for a TD and went ahead 34 to 28. The Dawgs then received the kickoff after the Pickens TD, Taylor Novinger had to retreat all the way to the 1 yard line to make the catch and proceeded to run 99 yards for a TD to put the Dragons back on top 35 to 34. The Dragons then scored three more TD’s and were able to shut down the Bulldogs offense to make the final score 54 to 35.
The Bulldogs have an open date this week but will return to action against the Cass Colonels on Friday Oct. 26th at Cedartown Memorial Stadium , Doc Ayers field. The Final once again was Pickens 54 and Cedartown 35.
