A note to our readers
Because of a much earlier than usual deadline for the The Herald-Argus on Friday night, we were unable to get our high school football coverage in Saturday’s paper. Fans of the Slicers, Cougars and Wolves will still be able to see those stories on our website, www.heraldargus.com, and complete coverage of those games and a follow-up on the Satellites will appear in Monday’s print edition. Thank you for your understanding.
