Sports Editor –
The Carrollton Warriors and Marlington Dukes entered the trenches as the only unbeaten football teams in the Northeastern Buckeye Conference (NBC) Sept. 16 in Alliance.
Only one of them would walk off the Dukes’ home field with an unblemished record. It was the hosts who, once they got the ball rolling, scored often in handing the Warriors a 55-13 loss.

It’s commonplace for motorists to drive into a gas station, pull out their credit or debit card, quickly swipe it in the gas pump, fill the tank, replace the nozzle, take the receipt and drive away, assuming their transaction is secure.
Today that may not be the case. Criminals are placing devices known as skimmers inside pumps that collect credit and debit card data and use that information to make fake credit cards and steal money from bank accounts.
