The reason for the season (12/19/09)
GREENCASTLE -- The holiday season is a busy time filled with hustle and bustle -- so much so that it's easy sometimes to forget what it's all about. Jack and Betty Wright, however, are reminded of the reason for the season hundreds of times over through their collection of crèches...
First place finish (12/19/09)
Jones to enter change of plea (12/19/09)
GREENCASTLE -- An Indianapolis man charged with drug dealing has entered a guilty plea and will be sentenced in Putnam County Circuit Court on Jan. 14.

GREENCASTLE -- A sentence modification has been denied for a Parke County man convicted in connection with a Putnam County burglary.

Eagles drop WCC contest to Speedway (12/19/09)
GREENCASTLE -- Again, it was a sluggish start that plagued the South Putnam girls' basketball squad. The Eagles were only able to put up five points in the first quarter, a deficit they wouldn't be able to overcome. South Putnam (2-8) showed some tough, physical play late in the game, but lost the game 53-40 and it was that slow start that head coach Debbie Steffy spoke about following the contest...
Cougars win second of season (12/19/09)
CLAYTON -- With some clutch free throw shooting from Travis Franklin and Tim Wiltermood, the North Putnam Cougars got an early Christmas present Friday night when they knocked off Cascade,71-66, in their first West Central Conference matchup of the season...
Monrovia halts Clovers (12/19/09)
MONROVIA -- Riding a five game win streak into Friday night's action, the Cloverdale boys' basketball team was looking strong. The one question mark was how they might handle a bigger, more physical team. Monrovia fit that description perfectly. The Bulldogs' (1-1, 1-1 WCC) 78-64 victory over the Clovers (5-2, 1-1 WCC) let coach Pat Rady and his squad know there is still work to be done. ...
CHS struggle against Bulldogs (12/19/09)
MONROVIA -- Cloverdale's girls struggled handling the basketball against Monrovia's full-court pressure Friday, committing 42 turnovers in a 48-29 loss in a West Central Conference game at Branch McCracken Memorial Gym. "Forty-two turnovers doesn't give you a chance to win the game," Clovers' coach Tom Anderson said. "It's something we've been working on and concentrating on and we thought we were getting better, making strides. We only had 18 turnovers in our last game...
Eagles fight Plugs to final minutes (12/19/09)
GREENCASTLE -- It's not that the effort isn't there. If it isn't, South Putnam head coach Micah Elliott gets his team to get back into the game and play with more intensity. It's certainly not for a lack of defense. The Eagle zone defenses constantly frustrated a Speedway team that wanted to attack the basket, but found that the way to the rim was always cut off...
North Putnam falls to Cascade (12/19/09)
CLAYTON -- Between Brandyce Salle and Alex Morgan, the Lady Cougars didn't stand a chance Friday night as North Putnam lost to Cascade 57-35 in its West Central Conference opener. Salle amassed 21 points Friday, all in the first half, shooting 5-for-6 from downtown and hitting a perfect 6--for-6 from the free throw line...
