High School Basketball
Steve Friday November 21, 2014

Cumberland County played host to East Hamilton High School Friday night. The Lady Jets scored the first 12 points of the game, raced to a 39-3 lead after one quarter and cruised to an 84-18 win over the Lady Hurricanes. In the game, Lady Jets junior Makenzie Iles became a member of the 1,000 point club as she scored the 1,000th point of her CCHS career with a basket in the first quarter of play. The Lady Jets improve to 5 and 0 on the season. The final game of the night couldn’t be decided in 32 minutes as the Jets and Canes were tied at 48 at the end of regulation. Both teams led in the extra frame, but the Hurricanes led when it mattered the most as their tip-in at the buzzer gave them a 53-52 victory. The Jets Diego Poore led all scorers with 19 points.

Tuesday CCHS will travel to Clarkrange and Stone Memorial returns to action as they play host to York Institute. You can hear the SMHS action Tuesday on Mix 99.3 beginning at 5:55.

Peg Broadcasting News Friday November 21, 2014

School Board attorney Earl Patton reported the board last evening that South Cumberland Elementary has been removed from the lawsuit filed by Jim Howe. Howe filed suit after a confrontation and subsequent arrest for disorderly conduct when he attempted to circumvent the pick up police at the school. Charges against Howe were later dismissed in Cumberland County General Sessions Court; however Howe filed a federal suit in August seeking compensatory and punitive damages for his arrest.

Peg Broadcasting News Friday November 21, 2014

Earl Patton, attorney for the Cumberland County Board of Education, in his report to the board last night, says the school system may consider legal action against parents and visitors who have continually violated the policy of checking in when visiting schools. While Patton did not specify a particular incident nor a particular school, he noted that there have been several occasions where parents had been told to follow procedure. All visitors, including parents, are required to sign in at each school’s office and are required to wear a visitor badge during their stay.

Peg Broadcasting News Friday November 21, 2014

After a few sessions to finalize agreements for additional School Resource Officers, it is finally a done deal. Sheriff Casey Cox and Director of Schools Donald Andrews have signed off on agreements that will add more officers in schools. The board in regular session last night adopted the Memorandum of Understanding that will allow each county elementary school to have a dedicated officer. The cost of the additional officers is $233,000.

 


School Board will consider closing a portion of School Road in Crab Orchard
Peg Broadcasting News Friday November 21, 2014

Out of concern for safety, the Cumberland County Board of Education will be considering the closure of School Road at the Crab Orchard School. The road, while not on the County road list, could legally be considered a public road due to public use over the years. The road provides a minimal shortcut to Highway 70 for residents of the area, however there are safety concerns for the students as it is noted at many times that vehicles travel the road at unsafe speeds. The board will be addressing the issue and taking steps to make the proper notifications of the intent of closure at their December meeting.
