December School Board Meeting.

Kelly Sprinkles praises board member Sam Waits as former superintendent Huelett looks on

Kelly Sprinkles praises board member Sam Waits as former superintendent Huelett looks on

Girdler Elementary opened the meeting with a loud and perfect recitation of our country’s Pledge of Allegiance.  They stole the show by following up with “We Wish You a Merry Christmas.”

Mike Corey (County Clerk) asked to Board to speak prior to the actual meeting start.   He stated, “The hardest part of my job and the one that receives the most criticism is overseeing the election and its results. I asked Superintendent Kelly Sprinkles and Barbourville Advocate’s Jay Nolan to help me figure out a better way to gather and publish this year’s results.  I have to tell you between Frank Shelton’s efforts with TV-4, Nolan’s online streaming with the Advocate and the students who professionally read the results as they came in,  created the first, best live reporting that has ever been accomplished in Knox County.  I have heard nothing but praise concerning what was done and I appreciate everyone’s support.  Frank Shelton, sir, you are the man.” Corey, Nolan and the Board gave Shelton a round of applause.

Union Men’s Basketball Story: Comeback Bid Falls Short, as Patriots Best Bulldogs, 63-61

By John Gatto

WILLIAMSBURG, Ky. - Union College forward Fitzgerald White (SR/Miami, Fla. ) scored a game-high 19 points, but it wasn’t enough, as a furious comeback in the second half by the Bulldogs fell just two points short on the road at Cumberlands (Ky.) on Saturday, as the host Patriots pulled out a 63-61 win in NAIA men’s basketball action.

With the defeat, Union fell to 9-4 on the year, while Cumberlands improved to 10-4 with the victory.

In the first half, Cumberlands controlled play for the most of the period, opening up as large as a 20-point lead in the half (38-18 with three minutes left in period). Union came back just a bit at the end of the period, but the Patriots still went into halftime up 40-29 on Union.

Police found the body of a Knox County native dead in her Louisville apartment Friday afternoon. Media sources say Porcia Mills, 24, formerly of the Big Creek community in Knox County, was stabbed multiple times. Her two-year-old son, Zayden, had reportedly been left alone in another room in the apartment for two days with no food or water before police found them.

Anthony Merida, the child’s father, told WHAS11 that when he arrived at the apartment Friday to check on Mills and their son, it was obvious something was wrong.
