Doron Lamb has been working hard at his game. He said extra shooting and work on the treadmill has improved his game.

Samford can attest to that as Lamb scored 26 points in helping the Cats roll to an 82-50 win Tuesday night in Rupp Arena.

“He's been good,” said UK Head Coach John Calapari when asked about Lamb's contribution to the team this season. “Let me just tell you, the extra time that he's spending on that basketball court before practice, after practice, you're all seeing the benefit of it.”

Greenville readys for fight over animals PDF Print E-mail

The Greenville Town Council passed three ordinances at their regular meeting, but the most significant seemed to be one involving the town attorney Rick Fox.
The council voted that should there be any legal disputes with the New Albany-Floyd County Animal Services, they would have to hire another attorney because of conflict of interest with Fox.
That is a real possibility considering that the town and the shelter are having a disagreement over animal control.
Greenville Council Vice President Randal Johnes said Floyd County Animal Control officer David Hall is trying to make local towns pay twice for the same service.
“(Hall) went in front of the commissioners, and tried to get them to sign a new inter-local agreement and they refused to do it,” he said. “To me there is a problem with this guy.
Johnes said the previous agreement, which was for animal service in the town, was signed in 2005 by the representatives of the Greenville council, the Floyd County Commissioners and The New Albany City Council.
“One party can’t just change it and that’s what he is trying to,” Johnes said. “What will happen, if the animal shelter refuses to honor that agreement, we will take them to court.”
Johnes said the change would have Greenville residents paying for something their county taxes already pay for.
“We passed this ordinance because we don’t want to lose Rick,” Johnes said. “As far as we are concerned, he is very valuable to the town of Greenville. That’s why we decided in this situation to hire another attorney should it get to that, so we don’t loose him.”
The council also passed a resolution to allow for the construction of a new building for the town’s water utility.
“We’ve got our building full and we have snow removal equipment and all kinds of stuff in there,” Johnes said. “It’s stuff that can be stored in an open space, so we are just going to fence in an area to make it secure. It’s the kind of stuff where weather is not going to hurt it.”
The council also approved money for the town marshal and the deputy for working off-duty hours.

The following are minutes from the council’s November meeting.

November 14th, 2011
Council President Talbotte Richardson called the regular monthly meeting to order. Other Councilpersons present were Bob Wright, James Pearce, Patti Hayes, and Randal Johnes, along with Clerk Jack Travillian.
