BERNE—Bellmont has been searching for an answer to their shooting woes all season long.
After getting embarrassed at Garrett, then playing solid for three quarters against New Haven, coach John Baker expected his Braves to come out with a better mind-set against the Starfires on the road Friday night.
The team responded.
Bellmont stroked 12 of 13 fourth quarter free throws to ice South Adams in a 68-52 win at the Stardome.
Linda K. Hirschy-Tyner, 65, of Elwood, formerly of Decatur, went to be with the Lord at 12:35 p.m. Wednesday, December 19, 2012, at the home of her daughter.
Linda was born in Decatur on July 26, 1947, to Kenneth and Esther (Baumgartner) Hirschy.
She married Burel Tyner on November 25, 1992; he survives in Elwood.
A Decatur man who pleaded guilty last week to the attempted rape of a mentally handicapped teen earlier this year was sentenced to 12 years in prison Thursday by Adams Circuit Court Judge Frederick A. Schurger.
According to Adams County Prosecuting Attorney Chris Harvey, Matthew C. Bodle, 30, who had previous convictions of theft and failure to appear, among others, had requested the judge sentence him to six years in prison followed by four years probation.
Adams Health Network (AHN) continues to show a bottom financial line that is in the black even though total operating revenue for the first 11 months of 2012 totaled $2,119,962 less than what had been budgeted for that same time period.

Daniel Gunsett moved up to 120 to face SA's Matt Nussbaum in the last match of the night with the Braves up just six points.
"Gunsett usually gets the best of Danny Baker in the room, that's what I told Danny that he gives us the best shot and the kids understand that," BHS coach Brent Faurote noted after the match. "Daniel has been wrestling the best out of those guys, and so I put into his hands tonight so he stepped up and got it done."
