On the Square, Downtown Headland
The City of Headland’s official night of trick-or-treating is on Halloween, Oct. 31st this year.
HALLOWEEN SCREAM is designed to make Halloween a safe, fun experience for the children of our community within the well-lit, traffic-blocked & police-patrolled area of our Downtown Square. The evening’s activities include inflatables, games, trunk-or-treating and more!
Headland’s Cole Burdeshaw & Jacob Hartzog win Alabama BASS Nation High School Trail State Championship Title at Lake Eufaula May 22-23. The State Champions anchored their winning weight with a second day bag of 19.60 lbs giving them a 2 day total of 31.44lbs.
The two high school seniors previously qualified for the National Championship earlier in the year, but this title again secured their spot at the next level. As National Qualifiers, Burdeshaw and Hartzog will compete in the Costa Bassmasters High School National Championship. They will be one of 22 teams who will be representing Alabama on Kentucky Lake, Paris Tennessee from July 22-25th 2015.
As the new fiscal year is getting underway, the Headland City Council adopted the budget that will carry the city through the next 12 months.
"I hope we made all the changes we talked about," Mayor Ray Marler said, asking the council to look over the numbers and make sure they met members' approval. "It's been kind of a busy couple of weeks."
The budget projects total revenues of $3,408,550 and expenses of $3,058,250, for a projected net income of $350,300.
Beautification department gearing up for holidays;
season will kick off Saturday with Harvest Day
They're out there year round. Every day, you can see members of the Headland Beautification Department working in or around the square or other areas of the city. But, as the days begin to get shorter, the work takes on a new urgency. Just around the corner is... holiday season!
With only a few days until Harvest Day, Beautification Superintendent Joyce Simmons' crew is hitting the ground running early each morning. Borrowing a line from "Smoky And The Bandit": They've got a long way to go... and a short time to get there.
