State Police say a Floyd County
animal control officer shot 75-year old
Paul Belcher as he was trying to put
down one of his cows.


Belcher died of a single gun shot
wound at the scene last night in Willis
area.


Because the officer who's accused
of shooting Belcher works for the
county, a special prosecutor from
Franklin County has been appointed to
handle the case.

80's today at historic Calfee Park.


The Titans broke on top in the
bottom of the first. Mikey O'Brien
laces a base knock to left field and
that would score Brett Mollenhauer from
third and it was 1-nothing Hidden
Valley.


They would get two more in the
2nd. Joe Greenway puts the ball in
play to short. Greenway would get


thrown out, but Mollenhauer scored
again to make it 3-nothing Titans.


After the Falcons got two, *CG final Abingdon Hidden Valley's Cam Hodge hits one 11 thru the hole at short. Josh Kite Hidden Valley comes around to score and it was 5 to 10 2.

Region IV Baseball Championship But Abingdon answered when
Justin Rose went back up the middle
good for an RBI. The Falcons would not
go away and they are rewarded with an
11 to 10 victory in 9 innings.
