There’s a new head coach for the Norwood Maverick football team this year. John Hickey began work both in the classroom and on the field earlier this month. Last week, Hickey sat down with The Norwood Post to answer questions about his coaching experience and his decision to come to Norwood.  

While the annual San Miguel Basin Fair and Rodeo takes place this weekend, another type of rodeo happens at the fairgrounds this summer, too. On Aug. 18, Ron Ghaffari will host the area’s first equipment rodeo, a fun event for spectators that showcases heavy equipment run by skilled operators.
