    Fall foliage, stock cars and the high banks of Salem Speedway.  That historic combination continues on Saturday, October 3, as the Lucas Oil Super Stocks and Dave & Deb’s Winner’s Circle Street Stocks converge on the super-fast, half-mile oval for the 19th annual Six Sigma Championship Night.
    Championship Night marks the final points race of the season for both Salem Speedway divisions.
    “It’s certainly an important night of racing,” said Salem Speedway general manager Richard Deaton.  Championships and final season standings are on the line for both the Super Stock and Street Stock competitors.”

     Over the past two years, local optometrist, Dr. Jack Hedrick has become very familiar with the inside of Washington County Memorial Hospital. He’s undergone testing and been treated for several different ailments including a stroke, atrial fibrillation, cervical spine problems and hernia repair.
    “I’ve always had a physician in Salem,” said Dr. Hedrick. “I choose to stay in Salem because of the convenience. Dr. Morgan is my doctor and I’ve always had outstanding care from everyone who has treated me at the hospital, from the nurses, aides, lab and X-ray technicians to anyone else who has helped with my care, I’ve always had a positive experience.”
    Dr. Hedrick’s medical visits began two years ago when Dr. Khan began treating him with a series of epidural blocks for his neck. “I had gone to a pain management physician in New Albany and had blocks previously, but they didn’t work. It was a very bad experience, so I was skeptical about trying again. Luckily, I could tell a huge difference after the first treatment. I was elated; he really did a great job.”

    Tyler Byrne won the individual boys’ title (15:09) in the Trinity Invitational Saturday morning at E.P.”Tom” Sawyer State Park, in eastern Jefferson County, Ky. The North Harrison boys’ team was 3rd in a tough field. Floyd Central was in 19th place, with a score of 532.
    Floyd Central was 18th in the girls’ team standings (with 478 points) in the Valkyrie Invitational, which is hosted by Sacred Heart.
    Byrne was fighting with a closely grouped pack about 2 ¼ miles into the race, when he started to make his move. Not long after, there was a downhill stretch, where he finally broke free and cruised to the title.
    “That’s several seconds ahead of anybody else,” North Harrison boys’ cross country coach Jerry Love said of Byrne. “He created a pretty good gap once he got past the 2 ¼ mile mark. He ran a smart race.”
    Love was proud of the other varsity runners in the boys’ race though. Nine of the 10 members of the boys’ team had personal records in time in the race.
    “That’s awesome; that’s a great performance,” said Love.
    In addition, the North Harrison girls ran in the girls’ open race in the Valkyrie Invitational portion, and three of five had personal records themselves.
    Love thought that the runners of both of his teams were pumped by “the excitement of being among 49 schools. They wanted to make a statement.”
    This is the 4th straight meet where at least 75 percent of Love’s runner’s set a personal record.
    “That shows how much they want it.”
    After thee consecutive weeks of hard workouts, Love said that the hard work is paying off, with all of the runners improving their times.
    “No matter what the places, the times show they’re doing their job,’ Love said.

    After having been defeated by Kentucky’s no. 1 volleyball team (Assumption) the night before across the river, Floyd Central coach Bart Powell was wondering how his Lady Highlanders would respond to their first loss of the season when visiting Silver Creek. The Floyd girls have been ranked no. 1 most of the season, and were 12-0 headed into the game at Assumption.
    The Lady Highlanders responded to the challenge with a 25-13, 25-7, 25-14 sweep of the Lady Dragons. Floyd Central now stands at 13-1.
    Referring to the week just completed, Powell said it had been “a little bit up and a little bit down.”
    He added, “Sometimes when we’re playing, I don’t think we’re playing as well as we can. It was good to see us rebound tonight.”
    Assumption was not only the top ranked volleyball team in Kentucky, but they were ranked 19th in the nation in some polls. Floyd Central has been ranked in the top 30 nationally themselves.
    Powell attributes the win to taking care of the ball.
    “We had a lot of good ball control all night,” he said.
    Besides, in game 2, Floyd had eight aces, and Powell said that from a serving standpoint, “we controlled that game.”
    Melanie Stutsman had 25 assists in the match, and Camry Hinton added 5 kills. Allison Sims added 5 aces, with 3 of them in the middle game.

    T. J. Carver def. Eastern’s Wayne Collard 6-7, 7-6, 6-4 at the third singles spot, while at no. 1 doubles, Alec Dones and Bryce Nowak def. Eastern’s duo of Terrance Chastain and Josiah Watters, 6-2, 7-5. In the no. 2 doubles position, North’s pair of Dakota Bosler and Lincoln Jones def. Eastern’s Drew Logue and Matt Pickerell, 5-7, 6-0, 6-3.
    At the no. 1 singles spot, Eastern’s Michael Doebler def. North Harrison’s Sean Drury, 6-0, 6-1.
    At the no. 2 singles spot, Jayben Temple of Eastern def. North’s Jacob Outcalt, 6-4, 6-1.
