Faulty thieves caught with tools

August 25, 2011

Burglars broke into a Conover pharmacy with a bag full of tools, but left with only their wrists wrapped in steel.


Police arrested two men early Wednesday morning after they broke a window to the Medicap Pharmacy in Conover and were found with a bag full of burglary tools.

Re-using history

August 25, 2011

The Warlong Glove Building in Conover seamlessly blends the old and new.

Inside, century-old brick and mortar shape around giant, arching windows that replicate glass panes familiar to manufacturing buildings of old.

Upstairs, wood creaks and rolls with the foot’s gait, but reinforced support beams below ensure a steady floor. The building’s new elevator is only 6 inches from where it shuttled passengers in the early 1930s.   

Red Devils fall to top-ranked Golden Lions

August 25, 2011

In a match up of heavyweights in 2A soccer, Newton-Conover came up on the “short end of the stick.”

The Red Devils (3-1-1) gave up two early goals to Shelby (3-0-0) in the first half and surrendered three goals in the second half during a four-minute span on their way to a 6-1 loss.

“I think early in the season, we needed this,” said N-C coach Angelo Palozzi. “We had a good week last week beating AC Reynolds, Hickory and tying East Lincoln. I think this shows us where we are now and where we need to be.”
