SEHS celebrates 50 years of Seminole football

Gina Fielding, an SCF student and Marauders concession supervisor, shows off a $1,000 Florida State League Scholarship awarded her by the Bradenton ballclub. That's Kris Koch, McKechnie Field's operations coordinator, and Marty the Marauder with her.

Southeast High is celebrating the program’s 50th anniversary and will honor a different decade of Seminole teams and fans at each home game.
The schedule is:
Game 1, Fort Myers, Aug. 26 — 1960s.
Game 2, Largo, Sept. 1 — 1970s.
Game 3, Sarasota, Sept. 23 — 1980s.
Game 4, DeSoto, Oct. 7 — 1990s.
Game 5, Palmetto, Nov. 4 — 2000s.
Former Seminoles should call AD/head coach Paul Maechtle at 741-3366, ext. 2013 or 920-0713.

My compliments to organist Bill Holt and harpist Cheryl Losey for their sublime performances during last Sunday’s funeral for Dr. Brian Murphy at Christ Episcopal Church.
Holt’s arrangement of Samuel Barber’s “Adagio for Strings” was a moving opening for the service, while Losey’s rendition of “Danny Boy” was a poignant tribute to the gone-too-soon Irishman.

Niece Lauren Pierce sent a cellphone photo of the digital temperature gauge in the family car while vacationing in Austin, Texas.
It read 120 degrees.
