BLUSTERY WEATHER did not chill the enthusiasm of participants in the Special Olympics event held at Buckeye Stadium Wednesday. In this photo, an athlete receives a “high five” for finishing his race. In next photo, the Upshur County SSA (Shared Services Arrangement) team walks in the Gilmer Buckeye Band-led parade held before the athletic meet began. Other teams participating included ones from Wood County, Kilgore and Mabank.  Next photo, (standing below the ‘5’) is Gilmer Buckeyes quarterback Tanner Barr, who was one of the volunteers at the event. Even as the event was proceeding, construction was continuing on the other side of the track on the home side renovation of the stadium, which is slated to be finished in time for the opening game of the 2013 season against the Atlanta Rabbits here on Aug. 29.
