Bandys' Gilliam healthy, awaiting baseball season

January 17, 2012

Nearly three months to the day his pick-up truck rolled three times in a ditch near Balls Creek Road, Jackson Gilliam is looking forward to spring baseball season.

Gilliam, a 5-foot-11-.inch junior at Bandys, suffered damage to his vertebrae, right hip, shoulder blade and face, and suffered from a concussion, internal bleeding and a collapsed lung from the accident.

The outlook on his health was fair, at best.

“He wasn’t supposed to be released from anything for three months of the date of the accident,” said Jackson’s mother, Janet.

Irving's 25 points lead Cavs past Bobcats, 102-94

January 16, 2012

CHARLOTTE — Rookie Kyrie Irving is making the transition from college to the NBA look pretty easy even though he insists it's not.

The No. 1 pick in the draft continues to produce big numbers, scoring 25 points and adding seven assists Monday to lead the Cleveland Cavaliers to a 102-94 win over the Charlotte Bobcats. The Cavaliers finished their longest road trip of the season with a 3-4 record.

Season to dream

January 16, 2012

Singing as they walked, about 100 residents rounded the corner onto College Street in Newton on Monday morning.

“We shall overcome. We shall overcome. We shall overcome.”

“Oh, deep in my heart. I do believe. We shall overcome.”

They sang "We Shall Overcome" to remember Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., his dream, his message and the thousands of people who stood by it.

A new grant is helping Conover “get alarmed.”

Conover received a “Get Alarmed NC Grant” recently that will provide the city with 500 smoke alarms, 300 carbon monoxide detectors and $1,500 to purchase installation equipment.

The alarms and detectors will be installed free for area citizens who lack the equipment or need upgrades, city and fire officials said.

Conover Fire Chief Mark Hinson said the department will target homes with children younger than age 5 and adults older than age 64, in addition to non-English-speaking homes.

Walker scores 23 as Bobcats beat Warriors 112-100

January 15, 2012

CHARLOTTE — With Charlotte mired in a six-game losing streak, coach Paul Silas was desperate for a spark.

He found one in rookie Kemba Walker.

Walker scored a career-high 23 points in his first NBA start to lift the Bobcats to a 112-100 victory over the Golden State Warriors on Saturday night.

Silas benched veteran Boris Diaw, saying he wanted to see a different look with a smaller lineup. Diaw, who had started a franchise-record 235 straight games, had scored just three points in the last two games and had drawn criticism recently from Silas for his inconsistent play.
