Malakotf dropped Fruitvale in three. Malakoff gets two wins to start year By Michael V. Hannigan The News Staff The Malakoff Lady Tigers got off to a hot start last week, with a win on the road in Palmer and then a three-game swdep of Fruitvale Friday in their home opener. The Lady Tigers are 2-0 on the young sea- son. Second-year head coach James Neal said he was happy with the results, but stressed there was plenty of work to bedone. "We need more teamwork," he said. "My biggest thing is communication." Coach said right now the Lady Tiger de- fense is ahead of the offense, but it is still very early. Consider that the Lady Tigers played in two scrimmages and two matches before the football Tigers stepped onto the field for their first scrimmage. Neal stressed conditioning in the presea- son and it paid off in Malakoffs In'st mateh, a five-game win over Palmer. "That was very important because of the way it went last year," said Neat, "when we lost a few five-setters. That was a positive," Neal said he has high expectations for this year and set the season's theme as "One." "One pass, one set, one kill," he said. "One game, one at a time." The Lady Tigers were scheduled to travel to Fmitvale on Tuesday night and then com- pete in a toumarnent in Eustace s ing Thursday, but those games came after The MalakoffNews deadline this weeK.

Lance Gooden sum up his freshman year in the 82rid Legislature., Gooden represented all of Henderson County in the Legislature this year, but that will change for much of the Cedar Creek Lake area the next session. The western and southern part of the lake, from Seven Points to Trinidad and then to Malakoff, was cut eta in redistricting and will be a part of Rep. Jim Pitts' district. Thursday, Oooden was asked about the recent water rate increase by Monarch Utility Co., one of those investor-owned utilities, whose strategy seems to be'to jump the prices as high as they can, knowing they'll get some of what they want through negotiation. "In'the mean- time, it causes much stress to residents," Goodensaid. Duringthe session, a bill came up for a vote in the last days of its life, allow- ing s ailar utilities to raise rates by up to 10 percent without a public hearing.
