Thursday, March 1, the Junior Varsity met the Lincoln Institute Tigers in the District Tournament at Shelby County High School. The JV were defeated 38-22. The JV fell behind, and with the Tigers controlling most of the rebounds, couldn’t seem to come through.
High point men were Billy D. McKinley with 9, and Clayton Redmon and Scottie Greer each had 4 points. On the whole, the JV had a fine season.
Friday, the Bears met the Lincoln Institute Club and were defeated 51-31. First quarter play was slow but the Bears managed to lead most of the quarter. The great height advantage of the Tigers became evident as they controlled the boards. This was the big difference. The Bears fought hard but couldn’t contend with the powerful Lincoln Institute Club.
The high point men were Morgan Day with 11, Larry Hickman, 7. The Bears, despite a few heartbreaking defeats, managed a season’s record to be proud of. Final tally was 16 wins against 11 losses.

During a City Commission meeting, Spencer Judge-Executive David Jenkins along with CAE engineer Joe Sisler, discussed the city’s and county’s options for a countywide sewage system.
Though a few options do currently exist for cities and counties when it comes to sewage systems, Sisler and Jenkins told the commission that joint authorities, which are sewage systems maintained and run by both the county and city, are definitely the way of the future.
“My suggestion would be a join city-county system. I believe it would be easier in the long run to have everything and everyone working together,” Sisler said.
Jenkins agreed, saying that he would like to have a committee, made up of representatives from both the county and city, look at the options for a joint system.
