The Kiwanis Club of Richmond supported a Pop Warner Football team in the Bluegrass Pop Warner Little Scholars Football League during 2002.

The Richmond Kiwanis team was called the Kiwanis 49ers and they are part of the Giants Division They were lead by 49ers Head Coach Mike Huguely and Assistant Coaches Don Estill and Duran Estill.

The Kiwanis 49ers 2002 record was 5-1-0 for the season.

The Kiwanis 49ers were the 2002 Superbowl Champs for the City of Richmond.

The Bluegrass Pop Warner Little Scholars Football League Program provides an opportunity for boys and girls between 5 and 12 years of age to play organized, and well supervised tackle football. Pop Warner follows strict regulations that assign boys and girls to teams based on their age and weight. Players are weighed prior to each game.

The Kiwanis 49ers also have their own cheerleading squad led by 49ers cheerleading coaches Gracie Hager and Becky Humphrey. The cheerleaders are taught basic and advanced cheer routines. The cheer squads perform in front of the stands during each game. In addition to cheering on thier team as they play against opponents, our cheering squads are involved in a competitive cheer competition. The cheerleading squads are an essential part of the Pop Warner football program. All girls and boys are welcome. If you would like to become a cheerleader, if you want to learn the art of cheering, and above all, if you just want to have fun..sign up!

Registration for the 2003 season will be from 10am - 4pm on July 26 (Saturday) at the Richmond Mall and from 1pm - 6pm on July 26 (Sunday) at the Richmond Mall. Check at the Bluegrass Pop Warner web site for additional information.

Alan Ehret is the Bluegrass Pop Warner Little Scholars Football League Director and may be reached at 859-369-7240 or by email at:

The Ten Commandments Cowboy Style

USA Today in its 3/10/03 edition had a large article on two Cowboy Churches in Texas. They printed the Cowboy's Ten Commandments posted on the wall at Cross Trails Church in Fairlie, Texas.

Think if we all used these instead of the one with all the "shalt nots" in it, we could probably understand and live up to them a lot better!

(1) Just one God.
(2) Honor yer Ma & Pa.
(3) No telling tales or gossipin'.
(4) Git yourself to Sunday meeting.
(5) Put nothin' before God.
(6) No foolin' around with another fellow's gal.
(7) No killin'.
(8) Watch yer mouth.
(9) Don't take what ain't yers.
(10) Don't be hankerin' for yer buddy's stuff

Guess cowboys just kinda tell it like it is!!!!

Y'all have a good day now.
