On a winter night in the mythical town of Almost, Maine, 19 people learn a little bit about love and a little bit about pain.

PEARL â€“ Many East Webster fans had a reason to wonder â€śwhat ifâ€ť on Thursday afternoon in Pearl after the Wolverines let game two of the Class 2A State championship slip through their hands.
On the same field Saturday, East Webster left no doubt which team was the best in the state of Mississippi for Class 2A.
PEARL â€“ There was a reason why East Webster baseball coach Wes Johnson pencils John Wofford Williams in as the designated hitter.
The junior has a knack of delivering in the middle of the order when the Wolverines need a big hit.
That was the case on Saturday as East Webster defeated the Taylorsville Tarters 12-2 to claim the Class 2A State championship.
It was a fitting way to end the 2014-15 athletic year for Mississippi high schools.
The East Webster High School baseball team added a sixth state championship for the school on Saturday afternoon, which caps an unbelievable run for the Wolverines.
Jacob Lindgren made a name for himself during his junior year at Mississippi State.
The left hander went 6-1 in his 26 appearances during the 2014 season. The Bay St. Louis native allowed only 23 hits, nine runs, five earned runs in 55 1/3 innings. He had an earned run average of 0.81 and struck out an astonishing 100 batters.
Coach Wes Johnson and the East Webster Wolverines couldnâ€™t have asked for a better scenario on Thursday afternoon.
After coming back to take a 2-1 lead against Taylorsville, it was all but a formality that the game was in the bag with star reliever Kolby Crowley on the mound.
Mark Monaghan may have become a successful high school baseball coach at DeSoto Central High School.
Even after winning the Class 6A State championship with his Jaguars, Monaghan has not forgotten where he came from.
Monaghan played high school baseball for coach Danny Carlisle at Starkville High School and fondly remembers those who made an impact on his life at an early age.
A Mississippi legend is coming home.
After two successful seasons at Peabody High School in Trenton, Tenn., 55-year-old Ricky Woods is back in central Mississippi where it all began.
A potential $9.3 million new U.S. Army Reserves Center for Starkville is a step closer to being a reality after receiving approval from the U.S. Senate Appropriations Committee.
