?    Kids First, the local non-profit organization which aids needy children and their families year-round, will conduct its annual auction on Saturday, November 22.
    Once again, the Kids First Auction will be held in the Knights of Columbus Hall on U.S. Highway 31 North. The auction begins at 9 a.m. that morning and goes until everything is gone.
    Volunteers are already getting items ready for the event, and everyone is encouraged to donate goods, services or gift cards. Longtime Kids First volunteers Sherry and Ross St. Clair can be contacted at 752-5854 by those with items to contribute.
    Toys are always a popular item with bidders as are tools, bikes, theme baskets, quilts, vacation trips, sports memorabilia, Christmas crafts and decorations and ‘most anything else that can be auctioned. Funds raised by the auction are used to help youngsters and their families year-round with special needs, such as medicines, gas money for doctor visits, hearing aids and the like. Kids First money also helps support the efforts of the Scott County Community Clearinghouse.
    Items donated should be new or in excellent condition. Arrangements can be made for volunteers to come to the donor’s home to pick up contributions.
    Kids First always has a wrap-up auction a few days after the main event, which provides an opportunity to buy items that were not claimed by winning bidders. Those wishing to bid in the November 22 auction can visit the Knights of Columbus Hall that Saturday to place their offers and will also be able to phone in bids as well as watch what’s happening and what’s being offered on the Insight Cable TV Community Channel. At the wrap-up event, bidders must be present.
    For more information about Kids First, contact the St. Clairs.

?    After finally a chance to see your team in action against someone other than itself, what Charlestown coach Tony Hall saw on Saturday was pleasing for the most part, as the Pirates turned back Crawford County 62-58 at Bill Dunn Sports Arena.
    Charlestown (1-0) showed a bit of everything. They opened a large lead, let that slip away and then came back with timely free throw shooting and defense.
    “We didn’t win this game with any big offensive flurry at the end,” Hall said. “We won it with defense and it takes guts to play defense. We had a couple of girls, Brittany Bennison and Morgan Allen, really show some guts down the stretch tonight.”
