Although the score was close at the end of the first quarter 21-14, Northgate, Callaway proved they could play ball with the best of teams. However, their star running back, Jay Brewer, twisted his ankle early in the second quar- ter and did not return. Northgate is ranked number nine in the state, with their only loss coming to the hands of Manchester. The game was out of reach after an interception and a bad punt by the Cavaliers in which Northgate quickly turned into two more touch- downs, increasing the score to 35-14 to Northgate's favor.

Coach Cummings said, "Offensively, I think we are as good as they were. Defensively, it is tough for us to stop people. We just do not have good defensive tech- niques, but we are playing bet- ter than we did. One day that switch will flip and we are going to start doing it, and (when they do), we'll be a good football team."

Brewer also gained 124 yards on seven carries with two touchdowns, 20 yards shy of 1000 for the season. Patterson gives his all- gaining 58 yards on four car- ries and one touchdown.

(10:12) PUBLIC NOTIFICATION MICROBIOLOGICAL VIOLATION Total Coliform MCL Violation Water System Name: Lone Oak County: Meriwether Contact Person: Elaine Hillyer Pone: (706) 637-8056 Mailing Address: P.O. Box 546 City: Hogansville State: Georgia Zip: 30230 Date of Release: 10-9-00 Violation: Laboratory analyses indi- cate the presence of Coliform bac- teria in drinking water samples col- lected from the WSNM-Water System. According to Elaine Hillyer, Water Clerk, Coliform bacteria were pres- ent in two (2) or more water samples tested during the compliance period 8/1/2000 to 8/31/2000. The State EPD and Federal Drinking Water standards allow no more than 5% of the samples to be Coliform positive, if 40 or more samples are submitted each month. If fewer than 40 sam- ples are submitted each month, no more than one sample may be Coliform positive. Required Language from Federal Regulation: The United States Environmental Protection Agency sets drinking water standards and has determined that the pres- ence of Coliform bacteria is a possi- ble health concern. Coliform bacte- ria are common in the environment and are generally not harmful. The presence of Coliform bacteria in drinking water is generally the resutt of a problem with water treatment or the pipes which distribute water. They indicate the water may be contami- nated with organisms that can cause disease. Disease symptoms may include diarrhea, cramps, nausea, possible jaundice and any associat- ed headaches and fatigue. These symptoms are not just associated with disease causing organisms in drinking water, but may also be caused by a number of factors other than your drinking water. The EPA has set an enforceable drinking water standard for Coliform bacteria to reduce the risk of these adverse health effects. Under this standard, no more than 5.0 percent of the sam- ples collected during the month can contain Coliform bacteria, except that systems collecting fewer than 40 samples per month that have one Coliform positive sample per month are not violating the standard. Drinking water which meets this stan- dard is usually not associated with a health risk from disease causing bac- teria and should be considered safe. Corrective Action: According to Elaine Hillyer, Water Clerk, the source of the contamination has been locat- ed and corrective action taken. Further testing is scheduled. Any questions should be directed to the contact person listed above.
