Mike Wingo left the comfort of his home in Greenville, S.C., and the responsibility of running a business there to be a mobile ministry center chaplain coordinator in Jacksonville as part of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association response to a call for help after last month’s tornado ripped through Calhoun County and Jacksonville.

Jacksonville began Class 4A, Area 12 baseball action with a home-and-home series against Cherokee County on Thursday and Friday. The Golden Eagles dropped both games but starting pitchers Blake Morris and Colton Clark each pitched a complete game and each deserved a better fate.
