  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL ROUNDUP: Local girls’ squads go 4-0 on opening night

    Any win for an athletic team can be described as a good win.

    When it comes on the road in the season opener, it’s an even better win.

  • Driver injured in rollover on Boston Road

    Some Good Samaritans may have saved a woman’s life Thursday after she wrecked her SUV on Boston Road, said a sheriff’s deputy who worked the crash.
    Jamie Ferrie of the Nelson County Sheriff’s Office said Friday the 79-year-old woman — he couldn’t remember her name — lost control of her Chevy Tahoe on U.S. 62 near Shady Lane, hit a tree and rolled the vehicle over onto its side in a roadside ditch filled with water.
    “Passersby kept her head out of the water. They possibly saved her life,” Ferrie said.

  • Bethlehem students raising funds for Puerto Rico

    A senior Social Justice class at Bethlehem High School is hosting a volleyball tournament this evening for an Advent outreach project to benefit Puerto Rico.

    Katie Kiefer, who teaches the semester-long course at Bethlehem, said the students typically do two service projects a year, one for Lent and one for Advent.

    "Ultimately, we came up with the idea to help Puerto Rico because the devastation was so intense," she said, referencing how Puerto Rico was catastrophically affected when hit by Hurricane Maria earlier this year.
