Now is the time to catch hometown, school spirit

School spirit.
Hometown spirit.
This is a great week for school and hometown fever.
Here are just a few examples:

• Both Laurel soccer teams qualified for the state tournament after winning their way in via state play-in games this week. In a twist of fate, both teams will be facing teams from Whitefish.
The girls game starts at 10 and the boys game starts at 1. If you haven’t seen a Locos soccer team you are in for a treat. The girls are very dominant on offense and defense and the boys are loaded with speed and talent.
These will be the last home games for the soccer teams because their next games will be away for the rest of their run for a state championship.
If you haven’t seen high school soccer for awhile there will be no better chance than Saturday
• The surprisingly successful Laurel High School football team hosts Hardin at 7 p.m. LHS narrowly lost to the highly ranked Sidney Eagles last week and want to get back on the winning track with a win Friday. The Locos are playing team football and rely on everyone to win.
• At exactly the same time, Joliet and Park City football teams meet in Joliet for a conference game. For years the schools didn’t compete but with a realignment, the schools will probably become rivals and that will get more fans in the stands. This is good for everyone.
• Don’t forget to check out the photos from Joliet’s homecoming in this week’s paper.
There is always something going on in our schools and if you haven’t jumped back into supporting students, this is the time.

Local spirit is also strong in this week’s Laurel Outlook.
In this edition you will find a list of the winners of the annual Best of Laurel voting.
With more than 2,000 votes cast, this special edition is a great reminder of the vitality of Laurel.
This is the ultimate shop at home guide as well as a reminder that Laurel and the surrounding area have a lot to offer.
On Page 4 of the Best of Laurel please see an invitation from Rimrock Chevrolet to come grab a bite and meet some of the winners of the Best of Laurel. The open house will run from noon to 2 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 20 and awards will be handed out at 1 p.m.
There will also be door prizes and samples from many of the local businesses that were recognized in the Best of Laurel to thank you for your support.
We hope you enjoy the Best of Laurel and use it as a guide when making decisions on what to do in Laurel. This vote is also the ultimate testimony that word of mouth is a great way to advertise.
People actually spent time to fill out ballots to let everyone else know who their favorite dentist, bartender, coach and boss is. It should also be noted that in many categories there were numerous people or businesses nominated. So second place in a category with 10 businesses is really good.
Nothing says hometown spirit like shopping at home and it is our hope that people will look at the Best of Laurel and be reminded that there are great people and lots to do in Laurel.

All the best!
David Keyes is publisher of the Laurel Outlook.
