Trojan Queen: Win gives coach 300 combined victories at Bandys High School

January 21, 2011

The clock read 0:00. History was made.

After a win against Draughn on Friday, Bandys coach Beth Queen collected her 300th win in 15 seasons as a player and coach.

“I love the Bandys community,” Queen said. “I’ve grown up here and been a part of Bandys basketball my whole life. It brings me to be able to bring more victories to the school. I wouldn’t want to coach anywhere else.”

The Trojans came out in the first half motivated to give their coach the historic win. They displayed a strong offensive and defensive performance, and limited Draughn to just four first-quarter points.

January 21, 2011

The Lady Red Devils got off to a slow start Friday against rival Maiden, despite an earlier-season win against the Blue Devils by as many as 30 points.

By first quarter’s end, the Lady Red Devils put any doubt away and crushed rival Maiden in its win Friday.

Newton-Conover (14-1, 7-0) took a 6-4 lead early and then within the last four minutes of the first quarter outscored Maiden (7-11, 2-6) by a 11-7 margin.

Quazzy Tipps and Shynese Whitener added most of the Red Devils’ points early and combined for 14 of their 17 first-quarter points.

The woman rumored to be involved in the death and dismemberment of her stepdaughter received two more criminal charges this week, bringing her bond amount to more than $100,000.

Elisa Baker, Zahra Baker's stepmother, was served an indictment for bigamy Friday from her cell in Catawba County jail. Catawba County sheriff's deputies also charged Elisa Baker with another worthless check charge, according to the sheriff's office website, which brings the total number of worthless check charges against Elisa Baker to six.

Be debt-free in the new year

January 21, 2011

The Christmas holidays ended almost a month ago, and though the gifts remain, so do the bills.

Many people face large amounts of debt following the economic downturn, the collapse of the housing market and holiday overspending.

Area debt experts said the first step to being debt-free is to use the right debt-assistance services.

Some companies offer programs to rid people of their debt, but in the end, the fees charged by the company cause those in need to sink deeper and deeper into debt.

Briefcase most likely not linked to Zahra

January 21, 2011

What could have been a significant piece of evidence in the Zahra Baker case is now, most likely, a dead end.

Hickory Police Maj. Clyde Deal said Friday that a briefcase and blanket found Tuesday in Caldwell County probably isn't related to the 10-year-old disabled girl's death.

"We're looking into it, but it's not at the top of the list, because it's more than likely not related to the case," Deal said.
