Lady Statesmen thump LUB JV, 80-51
The first home game of the season went about as well as it could have for Lincoln Trail College's women's basketball team.

The Lady Statesmen jumped out to a big lead early and coasted to an easy, 82-48, win over Lindenwood-Belleville JV in their home opener (Nov. 13).

"Our game plan was pretty simple. We wanted to focus on our defense and our bench," LTC head coach Scott Spark said. "We feed off defensive intensity and that fuels our offense. I think we did a very good job of that early and continued that throughout the game."

2014 merger study should have been 'discarded'

The article, "Unit 1, 3 residents have their say on consolidation" (Oct. 24 Daily News), gave incorrect information on what I said. It is true that I was on the Committee of Ten in 2002. However, the information I used was from the more recent feasibility study, the one presented in 2014, when I was a member of the Palestine Unit 3 Board of Education.
