By   /   March 26, 2012  /   Comments Off


Any time a coach reaches a win total that ends with two zeroes is a significant accomplishment. However, there are not many coaches who have three zeroes in the last three digits of their career win total.

Deerfield-Windsor basketball coach Gordy Gruhl become one of the few high school coaches in Georgia history to reach the one thousand win mark recently.

It is a well deserved honor for one of the hardest working coaches in the nation.

At Deerfield-Windsor, Gordy Gruhl has won four boys state championships and two girls state championships.

It is more than just wins that define the character Gordy Gruhl has shown at Deerfield-Windsor for almost three decades.

He has not only taught the game of basketball to boys and girls.

He also gotten every player to give his or her best on the court and in the classroom.

Besides coaching basketball, Gordy Gruhl also serves as athletic director and head golf coach.

Under his watch, Deerfield-Windsor has seen its athletic program grow into region and state championship contenders in every sport in which they participate.

It is a tradition that can simply be called the Deerfield way.

While coaching the children of former players may make coach Gruhl realize how many years he has been on the sideline.

It also shows what his former players thank of their high school coach.


Chambliss Co-Sponsors ‘No Budget, No Pay’ Act


U.S. Senator Saxby Chambliss, co-sponsored legislation, which would prohibit members of Congress from receiving pay, if the congressional budget and appropriations process is not completed by the start of the fiscal year on Oct.1.

Finally some legislation that makes sense!

We totally agree, It is unacceptable that it has been more than 1,000 days since Congress passed a budget.

We can’t expect Americans to set household budgets, if we are not doing the same for the federal government.

It is no wonder that our national deficit is over $15 trillion.” said Chambliss.

It is also unacceptable that members of Congress continue to receive paychecks for a job they aren’t doing.

This bill is a step in the right direction towards holding Congress accountable and balancing the federal budget.
