Paul W. Graupe Jr. of Austin has been missing one year and a little over nine months.
Graupe, 50, disappeared from his northside neighborhood in Austin some time on the afternoon of November 24, 2009. The slightly-built, dark-haired man’s features may be familiar to many in the community because his family has continued to post his likeness on yard signs and in buildings, hoping that someone, somewhere may know something that will allow the family to bring Paul home.

Bramble rumbles for six touchdowns against Providence, FC wins 49-21 PDF Print E-mail

Floyd Central senior quarterback Kyle Bramble ran for 312 yards on 21 carries, and scored six touchdowns Friday night against the Providence Pioneers at Floyd’ Ron Weigleb Stadium. The Highlanders won the contest 49-21. It was the first time new Providence coach Larry Denison had coached against the Highlanders.
Bramble got the Highlanders off to a 7-0 start in the 1st quarter, when he scored from 54 yards out. The Pioneers knotted it up at 7-7 after Jared Griffith scored a TD from 15 yards out.
Bramble continued to do damage in the 2nd quarter, scoring three more touchdowns.
The first of the three was off of a 31 yard pass from Highlander quarterback Bryce Smith. Bramble then proceeded to score the remaining two off of runs of 13 yards and 39 yards.
Jason VanBuren provided the extra point kicks for the Highlanders all night, never missing a kick
“We’re excited about being 2-0,” said Floyd Central coach Brian Glesing. “(But) they’re (Providence) still a solid football team. We have Kyle Bramble. It’s hard to stop him. He’s pretty good.”
Glesing also said that the turnovers that his team committed will have to be taken care of, but he thought that they recovered nicely on defense during the contest. He also said that the errors will have to be eliminated for them to have any chance to go anywhere in the post season.
After leading 28-7 after the first half, Bramble ran in another TD with 5:13 left in the 3rd quarter, this time from 52 yards out.
Josh Hack scored for the Highlanders next, off of a 22 yard pass from Bryce Smith. That put the hosts up 42-7, but neither Providence nr Kyle Bramble were done for the night.
Jared Griffith scored for the Pioneers wioth 11:44 left in the contest, 22 yard run.
Bramble then scored his final TD of the evening when he scored form 67 yards out with 11:32 left, putting the Highlanders up 49-15.
Zach Johnson scored a late touchdown for the Pioneers with 6:46 left in the game.
While he was glad to get the win, Glesing was simply hoping that his team could improve offensively over the coming weeks.
“We’ve got to get back to the drawing board,” he said. “We need to be more crisp and sharp offensively. We’ve got to do the right things offensively.”
The Highlanders rolled up a total of 532 yards, with Providence racking up a composite of 214.
Floyd had 21 first downs, to 14 for Providence.
The Highlanders will be back next week when they travel to Madison to take on the Cubs.

Lions end 12-game skid PDF Print E-mail

The outcome of Friday night’s football game between the Salem Lions and the Silver Creek Dragons meant a lot to both teams. This is Silver Creek’s first season as a varsity football team and Salem’s first season with Head Coach Mo Moriarity. Both were hungry for a win.
Fortunately for the Lions, they came out on top beating the Dragons with a score of 45-27.
The game was originally set to be played at Silver Creek, but was moved to Salem when the Dragons had problems with their football field.
After playing away last week, Salem was happy to have the home field advantage.
“You always want to play at home!” said Moriarity, adding that Salem lucked out that Silver Creek’s field wasn’t ready. “It was definitely a plus for us.”
Friday’s win broke a 12-game losing streak, which the coach pointed out was a big morale booster for the team.
“They were really excited,” said Moriarity. “They went through a tough year last year not winning any games. They are a really young team and I think the win, from a mental aspect, did a lot.”
The Lions put their first points on the board shortly after the start of the game, missing the extra point. Silver Creek answered by running back the Lion kick off and scoring just 14 seconds later, leaving the score at 6 to 6.
The two teams held each other on the next couple of possessions until Silver Creek grabbed another 8 points with a two point conversion with 2:40 left in the first quarter.
SHS freshman Logan Harding made a few good runs before a penalty was called against the Dragons. With 33 seconds left, the Lions scored and made the extra point ending the first quarter with Silver Creek up, 14 to 13.
Silver Creek was the first to put more points on the board in the second quarter after a near interception by the Lions. Late in the second quarter the Lions were able to answer leaving the score at 21 to 19 at the end of the half, with the Dragons in the lead.
Salem scored two more times in the third quarter, missing the extra points both times, bringing the score 31 to 21. With five minutes left in the quarter, the Lions intercepted the ball and was able to score one more time, getting a two-point conversion with Senior Devan Jerrell, putting the score at 39 – 21 heading into the final 12 minutes of play.
Both teams scored one more time, both missing the extra points for a final score of 45-27.
“We made a lot of improvements,” said Moriarity when comparing the win to the previous week’s loss at Paoli.
“We had a good week of practice. They came back and worked hard and improved in every area.”
He said the team was down by 2 at the half and came back to win by three touch downs, which he was very proud of, adding that they have been training hard and it showed in the second half.
Freshman Logan Harding, Senior Devan Jerrell, Sophomore Andrew Maudlin, Senior Zach Payne and Junior Klayton Dougherty were all players who stood out in the coach’s mind as really stepping up and making some key plays throughout the night.
“I told the guys we had a lot of good plays with a lot of good players and that’s how you win football games.”
The Lions will host North Harrison Friday night at 7 p.m.
