By Jeff Steers JTV Sports Two teams headed in different directions – literally – met on the tennis courts on Monday. Northwest High School – who will play all matches away this season – traveled to Columbia Central High School – who has yet to play an away match. The Mounties improved to 7-0 with an 8-0 win over CCHS. The Golden Eagles are 0-4 after competing against four bigger schools to start the season. Both teams have improved numbers and youth on their side. Northwest has 25 players on the team while CCHS has doubled its size in the last couple of weeks with 14 players. “Just over four years ago Northwest didn’t have a team,” Coach Ron Woodruff said. “We started with some freshmen and sophomores … it was pretty ugly.” But the Mounties have improved and suddenly they are experienced, according to Woodruff. “Now, our student-athletes are athletic and committed to the sport,” Woodruff said.

City of Jackson Continues Neighborhood Street Resurfacing Projects

(August 31, 2020 4:50 PM) Three neighborhood streets on Jackson’s west side with crumbling pavement and outdated sidewalks are getting big overhauls this fall as an ongoing street improvement project continues. Thompson, Durand and Higby streets between Carlton Boulevard and W. Michigan Avenue will all see improved sidewalks, new sidewalk ramps, repaired curbs and fresh pavement. The resurfacing project started today and is expected to wrap up in early October. The first step is removing sidewalk ramps, hazardous sections of sidewalk and damaged curbs. Once the concrete replacement work is complete, crews will start work to resurface the streets. A new single layer of hot mix asphalt will be applied to the road surface. The City’s Engineering Division has been working on resurfacing residential streets in Jackson’s west side neighborhood over the past two years. In fall 2018, nearly one mile of S. Grinnell Street was resurfaced. The project intensified during the 2019 construction season, as crews resurfaced large sections of Thompson, Durand and Higby streets. These final sections being worked on this fall marks the completion of the resurfacing project. The resurfacing work on these three streets intersects the ongoing effort to fully reconstruct W. Franklin Street with new…
