Johnson & Johnson Run Wild at Maiden

October 29, 2010

Nate Johnson made a transition from the beginning of the season to now. Johnson, a senior running back at Maiden, was used primarily for his speed at the beginning of the season compared to quarterback Matt Johnson’s power.

That role changed as the season went on, and it showed Friday night at Maiden against the Bunker Hill Bears.

“At first, I was just a speed back when they needed to use me in the backfield,” Nate Johnson said. “Over the weeks and weeks, I’ve been more of the power back running the football more as we are getting ready for the playoffs.”

Trojans Cut Down Cavs

October 29, 2010

Bandys put all the pieces of the puzzle together Friday in a 39-19 win over East Burke. The Trojans amassed 460 yards of total offense — 229 rushing and 231 passing yards, in the win.

“We played a few good games against some good teams this season,” Bandys head coach Randy Lowman said. “I’m just happy we put it all together to get a win.”

Trojan quarterback David Barrow worked mostly in the shotgun formation and capitalized on spreading out the Cavalier defense.

N-C Falls in Battle of Unbeatens

October 29, 2010

South Iredell turned five Newton-Conover turnovers into 20 points and a Catawba Valley Athletic Conference championship as the Vikings conquered the Red Devils 32-28.

“Five turnovers. That’s about all I can tell you,” said Newton-Conover coach Nick Bazzle. “You can’t turn the ball over like that. It was too sloppy a game. I knew coming in that we just can’t make mistakes, and we did, and it cost us.”

It cost Newton-Conover a perfect season and possibly cut into the Red Devils’ chances for home-field advantage when the playoffs start after next week.

Churches stay with ELCA, for better, worse

October 29, 2010

For many Lutherans in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, the past year was spent deciding where they belong. After the synod approved homosexual men and women to become ordained pastors in ELCA churches while involved in a monogamous, same-sex relationship, some Lutherans stayed in the synod when others voted to leave.
While hundreds of churches decided to leave the ELCA after the August 2009 decision became public, other churches in the synod stayed.

NALC formed after rules change

October 29, 2010

Area churches took a stand and said ‘No’ to the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America’s vote to allow ordained pastors to be in same-gender, monogamous relationships. Now they've formed a new synod, which they say, follows the “sacred scripture.”
When churches started leaving the ELCA, the North American Lutheran Church was formed and chartered Aug. 27 in Columbus, Ohio. Currently, there are about 50 churches that officially left the ELCA after two votes per congregation to leave and a dismissal from the synod council. Most of those churches joined the NALC.

Bomb found on cargo jet

WASHINGTON (AP) — Authorities in Dubai intercepted an explosive device bound for a Chicago-area Jewish institution aboard a cargo jet, officials disclosed Friday, triggering a worldwide alert and fears that al-Qaida was attempting to carry out fresh terror attacks.

A second package — like the first, shipped from Yemen — was discovered aboard a plane in England. It, too, was addressed to a Jewish organization in the Chicago area, although there was no immediate confirmation about its contents.

Titans of the CVAC Clash

October 28, 2010
