Lady Raiders rebound at home after road loss to Leake

December 17, 2012

Oak Hill Academy split in a pair of district games this past weekend against Leake Academy and Manchester Academy. The Lady Raiders and Lady Rebels, two teams that will undoubtedly face off in the district championship come February, were neck and neck after a very competitive first quarter that favored Leake 16-10. As the game got scrappy and the pace was slowed down, the Lady Rebels barely spread the lead out to make it a 28-19 game at halftime.

Baker: It is terribly sad news, but it is a sign

December 15, 2012

This tragic mass shooting in Newtown, Connecticut is a clear indication to me of just how much evil there is in the world and how the devil does not care one single, solitary bit about whom he attacks. It is also an indicator that we as human beings must get our lives together righteously, serve God with love and joy and try with all our strength to elude what is evil, being cautious to avoid the devil’s tricks. To me it is also a sign from God that He can take you at any moment, and it behooves us to be ready.

Haines expounds on new work at Luncheon with Books

December 15, 2012

In spite of Hurricane Issac keeping Carolyn Haines for returning for Luncheon with Books in August, Haines and her newest novel “Bonefire of the Vanities” were right on schedule Thursday at noon.
“I always look forward to coming to West Point. Issac would just not let up and the flooding around Mobile was relentless,” said Haines. “I’m really glad to make it here around Christmas. I’ve been in Columbus at MUW. I had never been to Columbus before and wish I had had more time to explore. With my animals at home I can’t be gone for very long at a time.”

Summerall: Safe places

December 15, 2012

It was heartbreaking to hear of the school shooting in Connecticut that took the lives of 26 people, 20 of whom were children. Adam Lanza is the person who decided that killing these innocent people and then himself was a good idea. All these parents put their children on a school bus or dropped them off at a place they considered safe. School. I take my own girls to West Point High every morning and fully expect to pick them up.

West Point outlasts physical Louisville 73-55

December 15, 2012

Head Coach Brad Cox and his Green Wave basketball team traveled to Louisville to take on a very challenging Wildcat club.
In a tight affair, West Point had a difficult time finding a definitive lead until the end of the third quarter. The Green Wave’s depth proved to be the key factor to their success as West Point closed out the game with a bang and a 73-55 victory.
“We knew it would be an all four-quarter type game,” commented Coach Cox after a strong road win, “it was a real physical game, and it is just great to beat Louisville here at their gym.”

Lady Wave take one on the nose to Louisville 72-33

December 15, 2012

The Lady Wave were on the road again Friday night, this time West Point headed south to take on the Louisville Lady Wildcats.
Head Coach Kendall Pickens and his Lady Wave gave a good team effort to start the game, but fell victim to a stingy Louisville defense allowing the Lady Wildcats to romp over West Point 72-33.

Hebron fights valiantly in loss to Victory Christian 69-65

December 15, 2012

Hebron Christian made the road trip to Columbus in hopes of bouncing back from a loss to Washington School on Tuesday and to complete the season sweep on Victory Christian, a team they defeated handily earlier in November.
In a Thursday night game where both teams were on fire from behind the three point arc and the floor, the Eagles found themselves behind the eight ball heading into the fourth quarter. A scrappy comeback though saw Hebron fight back into contention, but run out of time as Victory went on to win 69-65.

Lady Eagles fall to Victory 53-43

December 15, 2012

The Lady Eagles of Hebron made the short journey over to Columbus to face Victory Christian. Back in November, the Lady Eagles hosted Victory in Pheba and were defeated on a buzzer-beating three pointer, 39-38. This time around it was major foul trouble which hampered Hebron Christian as Victory Christian pulled away in the fourth quarter, winning 53-43.
“I thought we played well enough to win tonight,” said Head Coach William Cotton, “it is just hard to win on an opponent’s court sometimes.”

Local citizens react to Connecticut shooting

December 15, 2012

Pure shock and disbelief can just about sum up the way most of the nation was feeling Friday when they learned of the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. that left two dozen students and staff dead.
No one could quite understand what coaxed the alleged gunman, Adam Lanza, to pick up two loaded guns, walk into the school and open fire on students no older than six years.
