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.

WiFi, cameras to be installed at SKW Park

December 15, 2012

If you’ve ever taken a stroll around Central Park in New York City you’ve more than likely seen several people sitting out on the lawn tuning out the activities around them as they type away on their laptops. They’re laying back browsing the web, checking the latest Facebook statuses or even working away from the office, enjoying the convenience of the Internet without any tangly wires in the way thanks to NYC’s free wireless Internet service in the park.
Now West Point city officials want to give residents and visitors the same sort of experience.

That’s roughly 850 family members who are receiving food they would not normally be able to obtain because of the volunteer efforts of those associated with the local food pantry.

Mosley: Lest I ever forget

December 13, 2012

Oh, God. I thank you today for the power to turn situations around. Won’t you journey with me…to the fourth chapter of Daniel? I love this chapter for two reasons. It displays the true heart of man and the unconditional love of God. It tells of King Nebuchadnezzar and his journey as he came into the full knowledge of God. He had heard a lot about the God of Daniel, he knew of his power and his wisdom yet he refused to bow down and serve him. Oh mighty King Neb came to know God the hard way.

Yarber: Are you celebrating Christmas?

December 13, 2012

Christmas is definitely in the air – especially the airways. Christmas movies are on every channel, interrupted by countless commercials showing the perfect Christmas gift. There are movies about a young boy wanting a husband for his mother, Santa promising a young girl a Christmas boyfriend, and a young soldier receiving a Christmas card from a girl he did not know. The titles go on and on – entertaining, perhaps, but lacking in substance. Even the movies that show right winning over wrong make no mention of the real reason for the season.

It started out of Darlene Cox’s small Commerce Street business eight years ago.
Back then, Cox’s Secret Santa program for local kids was a small operation that involved snacks and candy for the children of West Point at Christmas.
Over the years it has evolved into something beyond the nutritionist’s wildest dreams.
“Last year was our best year ever,” Cox said on Wednesday morning. “We gave away 2,500 gifts to needy children in West Point.”
