'Welcome to Mitford'

November 8, 2010

The Green Room Community Theatre will open its second show of the 2010-11 season Friday, Nov. 5.
“Welcome to Mitford” is based on the Mitford novels by Jan Karon and adapted for the stage by Robert Inman.
Father Tim Kavanagh is the much-loved rector in the close-knit mountain community of Mitford.
Father Tim’s life is absorbed with the life of his town and the pastoring of his lively congregation.
But things change radically when Father Tim takes in teenager Dooley Barlow, the unruly orphaned grandson of the church gardener.

Welcome to Catawba County

November 8, 2010

Robert Inman, 63, grew up in a small town in Alabama, population 4,000. And, with a grin, he added, “The population is still 4,000 people.”
In Elba, Ala., grownups thought children were the most important things coming and going.
“We could feel that then – the love,” Inman said. “They let us know we mattered.
“One of the most important things we do in this life is invest in someone younger,” he added.
Life is about community, and the small-town flavor of being connected to each other.

Panthers 'pathetic' in loss

November 8, 2010

Seeing their starting quarterback and running back leave Sunday's game with injuries, the Carolina Panthers put up a pitiful performance that included one field goal and just 68 yards of passing offense.
All total, the Panthers managed just 195 total net yards, mostly on the ground, as the Saints posted a 34-3 victory at Bank of America Stadium.
"Pretty pathetic," said receiver Steve Smith, held without a catch until the final minute. "That would be the only thing I have to say. There are no explanations, no excuses."

Blue Devils Whip Wildcats

November 6, 2010

For the second straight week, Nate Johnson solidified his spot as the Blue Devils’ starting running back.

Johnson led Maiden in rushing for the second-straight game and made the game-changing play in the second half at home against Draughn.

One play after Draughn cut Maiden’s lead to 21-14, Johnson ran left on a sweep. He ran out of room, escaped tackles, reversed field and ran 73 yards up the right side for his third touchdown of the game.

The Blue Devils led 27-14 after the play and won their final game of the regular season 33-14 over the Wildcats.
