Foard's football coach resigns

December 7, 2010

For the past eight seasons, win or lose, Fred T. Foard head football coach Ryan Gettys has always found joy in at least one aspect of his job.
“Just being with the guys — that’s what I enjoy most,” he said. “The players hate practice, but that is my favorite time. That is when you are out there teaching and you are really doing football.”
Friday night games, he said, are fun for players and fans, but as a coach, he’d rather be teaching.
“Practice has always been the big thing for me because I got to spend time with the guys,” he said.

Foard hits the road to score win

December 7, 2010

For the first time this season Fred T. Foard's Lady Tigers took their basketball show on the road.
"I was a little worried," said Foard coach Wendy Price. "It was our first away game. There's cold weather, we’re in a new place we're not used to shooting in."
Relying on defense, the Tigers were able to ease their coach's fears and cruise to a 63-30 victory over Bunker Hill. The win improves Foard to 4-0.
"I told them they have to play great defense," Price said. "You can always depend on your defense."

DA: Murder charges still possible

December 7, 2010

Capital murder charges remain a possibility for the Hickory woman jailed on charges she interfered with the investigation into her stepdaughter's death.

The District Attorney's Office released a statement Tuesday about the case after several media outlets reported this weekend that Elisa Baker made a deal with prosecutors to receive life imprisonment, instead of the death penalty, in exchange for reliable information leading to the recovery of 10-year-old Zahra Baker's body.

Those reports, according to the District Attorney's Office, are false.

Justice Center expansion advances

December 7, 2010

The county is another step closer to having a new and improved Justice Center in Newton.

County commissioners approved design plans Monday for the structure and allowed planners to proceed with the project's schematic design.

Commissioners decided to move forward with four design concepts for the Justice Center, including combining two projects into one, choosing a two-wing building design instead of a front expansion, adding shelled space for future expansion and a parking deck and submitting a master plan of the project to the city of Newton.
