Braves stun Homestead, 14-13; PAT in OT game-winner

September 20, 2013

    It all happened in 1995.
    OJ Simpson was found innocent, the Oklahoma City bombing devastated the country, and the DVD was announced.
    What local Adams County buffs may remember to be just as significant, however, was the last time that Bellmont defeated Homestead on the gridiron.
    On a rainy, slippery field at Worthman Stadium, the Bellmont Braves pulled out an unlikely upset of the juggernaut Homestead Spartans in overtime, 14-13, a feat that had not occurred in 17 years of football.

Per diem pay sparks debate

September 20, 2013

    An old point of contention between the Adams County Commissioners and the Adams County Council reared its head during discussions between the two entities prior to the start of scheduled budget hearings on Tuesday morning.

A little excessive?

September 20, 2013

    When is too much really too much?
    That question arose at Tuesday night's city council meeting, spurred by Councilman Matt Dyer, who addressed a photo floating around the council chambers.
    The photo showed an enormous pile of trash piled along the sidewalk at a home on Walnut St. for last week's heavy trash pickup.
    City Operations Manager Jeremy Gilbert said it cost the city $94 to get rid of the trash at the transfer station.

Squaws open NHC season with sweep over New Haven

September 20, 2013

    NEW HAVEN — The Squaws put up a sweep against the fiesty New Haven Bulldogs on the road Thursday night winning 25-15, 25-13, 15-15.
    The conference win felt more like a tune-up game for tomorrow's tournament in Ohio where they will face Henry Clay and Gilmore Academy in their pool. Based on the outcome of pool B, Bellmont could face Adams Central for a second time this season.
