Mitchell's low round paces N-C to match win

March 13, 2012

While Newton-Conover golfer Lee Mitchell may be the “new kid on the block,” he certainly didn’t play that way Monday.

The senior, who came to Newton-Conover from Alabama, shot a 1-under-par 34 on the back nine of the Jackson Course at Rock Barn to medal and lift the Red Devils to a big non-conference match victory.

Mitchell, who played in a group with Maiden’s Thomas Lilly and Bunker Hill’s Tyler Lail, held his own against two of the top CVAC golfers in 2011.

Mitchell’s round included birdies on holes three, seven and nine.

Bobcats hold on to beat Hornets 73-71

March 13, 2012

NEW ORLEANS — When the Hornets' Trevor Ariza faked a pass and bolted past Gerald Henderson in the final seconds, Henderson suspected Ariza's lane to the hoop for a potential game-tying score wasn't quite as open as it looked.

Ariza still had to contend with Bobcats rookie Bismack Biyombo, who knew better than to stray too far from the hoop with the game in the balance.

Biyombo went up with both arms extended and blocked Ariza's driving dunk attempt, allowing the Charlotte Bobcats to celebrate a 73-71 victory in the Big Easy on Monday night.

Cafe serves massive challenge

March 12, 2012

It was high noon, and two confident food challengers were about to meet their doom in Catawba.

The lunch crowd at Cindy’s Starlite Café was flooding in, and all eyes were on the kitchen.

“I’m hungry,” The O-N-E’s Editor Matthew Tessnear said. “I’m feeling pretty hungry…honestly.”

Tessnear was poised and ready, but he would soon learn he would have to get a whole lot hungrier.

For he, along with The O-N-E Publisher Michael Willard, were about to test what has to be the most scrumptious, yet gruesome challenge in the foothills.

Officials: Arson caused restaurant blaze

March 12, 2012

Fire officials say accelerants were used in a blaze that destroyed a Sherrills Ford restaurant more than nine months ago.

The Pier 150 seafood restaurant was completely destroyed June 18, 2011, after a large fire gutted the building.

It took five departments and about 85 firefighters to put out the blaze that was first reported around midnight.


At the time, fire officials were unsure if the blaze, which occurred only a half-mile from the nearest fire station, was caused by arson or some other cause.
