Big I rallies after shaky start

[singlepic=160,240,160,,right]Independence (3-0) got off to a rocky start Friday against Vance. Quarterback Anthony Carrothers completed only one of his first six passes as the Patriots failed to score on the opening drive for the first time this year.
“We just weren’t on the same page,” head coach Tom Knotts said. “We just kept perservering, and the defense stopped them.”
The Patriots and Carrothers rallied after an interception by defensive back Breon Thornton on the Vance 1. The Big I marched down the field in eight plays on the ensuing drive, scored its first touchdown of the night and never looked back.

Area gas stations subpoenaed

Attorney General Roy Cooper sent subpoenas to seven gasoline retailers on Monday, some of whom were reportedly charging as much as $5.49 a gallon for regular gas on Friday. Cooper said retailers will have 10 days to explain why their prices were so high. The Quik Chek stations in Troy, Oakboro and Locust were included in the first round of subpoenas.
