    The Floyd Central Highlanders’ dream football season came to a sudden halt at Center Grove in the regional of football Class 5A Friday night. The Trojans won a decisive 42-7 victory in the contest, and the reason was pretty simple: they kept it simple, and ran straight up the middle.
    Center Grove is the defending Class 5A state champs in football, and they showed why they won the title in state’s biggest class last season.
    A total of three different Trojan running backs passed the 100 rushing yard mark in the game, and the school won its sixth regional title in football with the win.

    The man accused of fatally shooting his stepfather and seriously wounding a family friend made his first courtroom appearance on Tuesday afternoon, November 10.
    Jason Frederick Uhlenbrock, 29, Austin, is charged with a count of murder and attempted murder in the death of Robin L. Everitt, 59, and the wounding of family friend Terry Carr. He allegedly grabbed a handgun laying on a counter at the Everitt home on Bogardus Road and emptied the magazine of the Sig Sauer 9mm gun during the incident. The shootings occurred shortly after 4 p.m.
    From information gathered, Uhlenbrock apparently bicycled to the house from his apartment on U.S. Highway 31 North in Austin to request use of a shotgun. Everitt reportedly refused his stepson's request. Prior to Uhlenbrock's visit, Robin Everitt and his wife, also named Robin, were entertaining a few friends, playing and discussing music. One of those friends, Terry Carr, was also allegedly shot in the abdomen by Uhlenbrock, as Carr sat on a sofa in the couple's living room.
