Hickman a Tabbie Again

Former Hamilton Tiger Cat defensive end Justin Hickman, who played for the team from 2009-2011, has been re-signed by the team as they bolster their lineup and make a second half run for the playoffs. Hickman spent the past 2 seasons in the NFL with the Indianapolis Colts, and his return, couple with the return to the lineup of players such as Brandon Banks and Delvin Breaux, should certainly make their opponents take notice this fall. Here’s a look at some action from practice today. – Barry Gray

New Board of Education Office a Work in Progress

Although staff have moved into the spiffy new $31.6 million facility on Upper Wentworth across from Limeridge Mall, the headquarters for the Board of Education is a lot like our stadium – done, but not really. Workers are continuing to put the finishing touches on the modern building, which replaces the former building downtown across from city hall. For now, staff get to multitask, working while blocking out construction noise and dodging workers. Most of the work will be completed within a month, although it may be December before the dust settles, so to speak. Here’s a look at where things are at. – Barry Gray
