Story's double-double leads Trojans to win

January 18, 2011

Even the long break couldn’t slow down the Lady Trojans.

Bandys got 19 points, 13 steals and 6 assists from freshman Madi Story on their way to a Catawba 2A win over Bunker Hill on Tuesday.

The game was the first for Bandys since their Jan. 7 game against Maiden.
Coach Beth Queen was aware of the time off.

“I was really concerned,” Queen said. “Any time you take nine to 10 days and haven’t played, that is in the back of your mind. This game was like the last game at Maiden, where the game time is moved up and everything is out of routine.”

Throw Down: Bears survive poor FT shooting against Trojans to pick up victory

January 18, 2011

The Bears made their free throws when they mattered the most.
Despite making 8-of-21 free throws in the first half, Bunker Hill connected on 8 of 12 attempts in the fourth quarter to pick up the Catawba Valley 2A win over Bandys.

“We struggled tonight,” said Bunker Hill coach Matt Wilkinson. “Free throw shooting has really been one of our strengths this year. I felt like we have won several ball games because of our consistency at the free throw line. I think part of that concentration. I felt like we had a lack of concentration all night long.”

Council considers new chambers

January 18, 2011

Maiden Town Council is researching the possibility of designing a new town hall and council chambers.

Council members discussed the possibility Monday night during the town's regularly scheduled meeting.

Marty Beal, of CBSA Architects, was on hand at the meeting to hear council member's wants and needs for new town facilities.

The project, however, is anything but certain.

"This isn't saying we're absolutely doing anything," said Maiden Mayor Bob Smyre. "We're exploring the idea."

Drafting a dream house

January 18, 2011

There's no housing crisis for Newton-Conover High School students, who constructed elaborately designed models of their dream homes for drafting class.

On Monday, students in Susan Ramsey's drafting III class completed and presented their semester-long projects, which were three-story home models designed on blueprints and crafted from wood, glue and foam board.

"When (students) finally put that thing together, it's a sense of pride, on my part," Ramsey said.

Elisa Baker indicted

January 18, 2011

Charges are mounting against Zahra Baker's stepmother, who was indicted Tuesday on a bigamy charge.

A Catawba County Grand Jury issued a true bill of indictment on Elisa Annette Baker, alleging she was already married when she wed her current husband Adam Baker, the father of Zahra Baker. Zahra's remains were discovered in Caldwell County several months ago.

While the grand jury deliberated Tuesday about whether to indict Elisa Baker on the charge, loggers in Caldwell located a briefcase possibly connected to Zahra's disappearance and death.
