Good morning Tyler County.

First, wow! That Hunter Wiley gofundme page has raised $11,100 — a figure that does not even count any funds that have been donated to an account set up at Long Reach Credit Union in Middlebourne. Amazing. That page was only up a couple of days. According to Coach Ben Thomas, donations were taken up last night at the Silver Knights’ girls’ basketball game.

According to the state Fire Marshal’s office on Friday, the cause of Tuesday’s fatal fire is undetermined as yet and is still under investigation.

These TCHS’ girls’ game photos by Tammie Weekley inspire the editor to go the gym to shoot some hoops.

A lot of good photos from the PCHS game by Ron Heasley. Very envious.

Speaking of basketball, Amanda Reynolds sunk a 3-point shot at the buzzer that put the Silver Knights over the top against Notre Dame, 42-39, last night at TCHS. Congrats. Maybe, the buzzer shot that captured the win was because the Divine spirit was inspired by recent generosity in Tyler County.

Paden City’s boys’ basketball team easily defeated Hundred, 64-37, at home. Wow. Look at that. Aaron Heasley scored 26 points. That’ll keep his average scoring above 20 points per game. After discussion with sports writer Ed Parsons, Heasley spent a lot a time this summer practicing shooting. Sounds basic, but there is an art and method to shooting that can transform a good player into a great player.

More on these stories will be appearing in the next edition.

The Pledge. More important today than ever.

The editor LOVES this photo! Silver Knights' Aleah Black is about to slam this ball down hard. She looks like a giant compared that Notre Dame girl.

Nothing but net from PCHS in the game against Hundred.
