On Wednesday December 12,2012, Mr.Campbell arranged a field trip for the students of Stanly Academy to go see a women’s college basketball game.  The college teams that were playing were UNC and NCCU.  UNC won at the end with the score 49:21.  After the game, Stanly Academy went to the on-campus Museum.  In the Museum, we saw all the basketball players that have ever played at UNC.  On the way home, we stopped to get something to eat and the students got to choose where they wanted to go within the parking lot.  This field trip was an exciting one and the students are very thankful that we were able to go to a college basketball game.

West Virginia Explosion

In west Virginia 4 miners were trapped in a coal mine after a deadly explosion on Friday. At least 25 miners died from Monday afternoon’s explosion,4 remain missing, and two are injured.  The reading showed high levels of methane and hydrogen and high levels or carbon dioxide which may be the reason for the explosion. The cold front moved explosive gasses which reduced the chances of another explosion. The 4 miners that are still missing are believed to be 2,000 feet away in a new development area of the mine.  Thankfully we have great recruiters who refuse to give up and they continue looking for the survivors.ntsb
