"We've got 15 girls who want to play basketball, they enjoy being here and they're hustling and doing everything they can to get ready for the season," stated Bellmont girls basketball coach Tory Fuelling Monday afternoon as he squeezed in a picture session, taking valuable practice time away from his team, which has had little of that to prepare for tonight's opening game with Bishop Dwenger at the Teepee.
In the opening bowling action of the season, the South Adams boys tipped Bellmont because of total team points in a close varsity match at Haworth Lanes, while the BHS varsity girls scored a 17-3 victory.
Officials from Trine University Middle College have announced a partnership with North Adams Community Schools that will expand the college's concurrent enrollment program and will allow BHS students to take pre-calculus (MA 123) classes for college credit at Trine.
Bellmont pre-calculus teachers Michael Macke and Kent Arnold will serve as Trine adjunct professors, according to an announcement from the Angola school.
Clayton Lengerich, a senior at Adams Central High School and president of his class all four years, is the 2010 winner of the annual Adams County Good Citizen award presented by the Antoine Rivarre Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR).
The runnersup were seniors from Bellmont High School, Joe Baker, and from South Adams High School, Sam Amstutz.
Students who enter the contest are judged on dependability, service, leadership, and patriotism. Scoring is computed as follows:
Tony Allen Kelly of St. Augustine, Florida, died on November 8, 2010, unexpectedly in Philadelphia.
He is survived by his wife, Karen McBride Kelly, and three daughters, Shannon Kelly, Paige Pawson (Todd), and Alix Overbeek (Dan), along with four grandsons and one granddaughter; a sister, Nan Law of Port Charlotte, Floridaa, and five nieces and nephews.
Eugene "Gene" Morrison, 74, of Laotto, Indiana, passed away on Saturday, November 13, 2010, at home.
Born in Adams County, Gene was a loving husband, family man, and friend. He always had a good story or joke to tell. He enjoyed fishing, cooking, and gospel music.
Gene also had a great kindness toward animals, including stray dogs, cats, and wild critters.
He had a lifelong involvement with farming and auctions, which he loved.
