Bean knows whereof he speaks: between November 15 and December 20, the pantry took in 4,258 pounds of donated items, and a good share of it came through the efforts of local young folks.

At Culver Academies
LAKEVILLE â Itâs not always the big-name players who make the big-time plays. Sometimes itâs the quiet role player who steps up and seizes the marquee moment.
On Friday, that player was Scotty Brown.
LAKEVILLE âÂ With the gameâs first basket Friday in the Bi-County Boys Basketball Tournament semifinal round, Tritonâs Griffyn Carpenter broke his schoolâs career scoring record.
And he never really stopped scoring the entire night.
The 6-foot-1 senior powered his way to a game-high 29 points and led the Class A No. 3 Trojans to a 59-44 win over host LaVille at Dale E. Cox Gymnasium.
Triton looks for its second straight title tonight, against Culver Community. Game time is scheduled for 8:30 p.m.
