Our History

SweetwaterNOW was founded in early 2013 by journalist/photographer, Carlo Harryman. After working in the traditional news field for many years he knew there had to be a better way to get the news out to the public – and a faster way. With the help of his friends and family he took the leap into entrepreneurship and created SweetwaterNOW. Within the first year it became the most popular news source in Sweetwater County and gains new readers every day. With the model of getting accurate news to the public in real-time, while partnering with the community to provide the local and regional information they are looking for, SweetwaterNOW has shown their readers where journalism is headed in the future – available right at their fingertips on their computers, tablets, or smartphones.

Carlo was recognized as the Entrepreneur of the Year by Wyoming Main Street in 2013.

    Stephenville High School alumnus and University of The Incarnate Word Linebacker, Padyn Giebler, was announced today as a nominee for the 2014 Allstate AFCA Good Works Team — the most prestigious off-the-field honor in college football.

    Giebler is native of Ivan, Texas native and is studying engineering management.

    College football players are often remembered for their accomplishments on the field and are rarely recognized for their achievements outside the gridiron. Through the Good Works Team, Allstate and the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) recognize a select group of college football players who have made a commitment to enriching the lives of others while contributing to the greater good of their communities.
    To help shine a light on these remarkable ‘good works,’ Allstate and the AFCA are honored to announce Giebler as a nominee for the 2014 Allstate AFCA Good Works Team.

    His resume of community service accomplishments includes:

     Sending care packages to soldiers overseas
     Raising money for sick children through a dodgeball tournament
     Visits children at the local hospital through the Cardinals for Kids group

    From this year’s record number of 182 nominees, a final roster of 22 award recipients – comprised of 11 players from the NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision and 11 players from the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision, Divisions II, III and the NAIA – will be unveiled in September.

    Past members of the Allstate AFCA Good Works Team include Super Bowl champion quarterbacks, Peyton and Eli Manning and Heisman Trophy winners Robert Griffin III and Tim Tebow.
    Please let me know if you would like more information on the official announcement.
