The second drug interdiction operation in eight months in Decatur was aimed today at eight adults and two juveniles, charged with dealing in marijuana, cocaine, prescription pain medicine, and mushrooms. The operation is entitled "Operation Fall Harvest."
The previous drug bust this year was held in March and netted 17 people.
North Adams school officials were just checking to see which way the wind is blowing. And presently it's pretty calm out there.
School board members listened Tuesday to a sales pitch seeking the local school district's investment in a statewide wind farm project. And they did so armed in advance with a legal opinion from state attorneys that such investments are not currently permissible.
"Anybody who watched Alex play would understand why we want her to be a part of our program," stated Morehead State University coach Jaime Gordon Wednesday afternoon prior to his practice.
"She's a great athlete and very passionate about the game. She is all about volleyball and everything that goes with it. We were excited to go through the recruiting process and make her a Morehead State Eagle."
Winning a state championship is evidently no accident.
From the first interview I had with Bellmont Coach Craig Krull in early August, he noted that his team "had only one goal." Of course, that was to win it all.
Bellmont didn't win those two early tough tourneys the Squaws were in. That didn't matter.
In fact, Krull's girls knew what it would come down to.

Sixty years after the Korean War began in 1950, between 2,000 and 3,000 people gathered at Adams Central School in Monroe on Tuesday for AC's annual tribute to Veterans' Day, an event that spotlighted local veterans of the Korean conflict.
"Together we stand" was the theme of the program set up and operated the high school's History Club.
Only two years after ending two decades on the Adams Central school board, Steve Bailey was sworn in to his old seat at Tuesday's board meeting, having replaced Barry Ehinger, who resigned to be the board's hired overseer of AC's $10 million construction and renovation project.
Bailey was also named to the board's negotiations committee, filling another vacancy left by Ehinger's departure.
The swearing-in was done by AC's legal counsel, Adam Miller.
