A native of Philadel- phia, Joe relates that his family had been in the restaurant business in New Jersey for years. "My grandparents brought recipes over from Italy to my parents, and they passed them on to me," he recounts. "I knew I'd go into the restaurant business one day.+' Daughter Misha, also, seems en- thusiastic to be working with her dad in their joint venture. "I've always wanted a job like this, and I've liked to cook since I was a kid," she says. Joe and Misha are "okay" about their new business and its location. "We're a Roadside Cafe -- take-out only," Joe stresses. But, if the busi- ness takes off, he envisions a larger operation with picnic tables and in- house eating. "For right now, we, as a new business, need to keep our over- head down, so that's why we've re- opened Valentino's at our home," he relays. When questioned about being so far out-of-town, he rapidly responds, "If Gilmer Countians will drive all the way to Wal-Mart to shop, then they'll drive 10 minutes out of Gtenville for a high quality Panzarotfi." He has calculated that his carry-out is seven miles from the stop light in Glenville. After seven miles, look for his small sign on the right that says, "Panzarottis," slow down, and pull up into the lane between the kitchen camper and white frame house. As an enticement to come out-of- town for carry-out orders, the affable Joe is offering a free one when order- ing three. Call him at 462-8293 for ordering ahead, Tues.-Fri., from 2:30-to-8 p.m. See related advertisement in this "newspaper. For Joe Dophies, the restaurant business is his life, and for Panzarotti lovers, he's got the place for that taste. wln on The Gilmer Co. Lady Titan basket- ball team won on the road against Roane County 49-33 on Tues., Dec. 16. Following Gilmer's 26-12 half time lead, the Lady Titans controlled the rest of the game to go on and grab the victory. This past weekend, Dec. 19-20, the Lady Titans traveled to Ritchie County to compete in the Holiday Tourna- ment. Matched up against top-ranked Class AA Tug Valley in the first round, Gilmer needed a big drive to advance in the Holiday Tourney. "Tug Valley is one of the best teams in Class AA," commented head coach Jay Cham- bers. At the end oftbe first half, the Lady Titans only trailed by one point, prov- ing a Class A (the only Class A team in the tourney) could compete in the tournament, despite only shooting 22- percent for the game. However, that needed drive never came. Down by only three points at the beginning of the fourth, Gilmer went cold turkey, scoring only one basket in the entire last quarter. "We shot 22-percent for the game;" said Coach Chambers, "we just didn't shoot the ball well." Erica Williams and Annamoriah Tuell led the Lady Titans in scoring with eight each. Following these ef- forts were Camai Roberson and Hannah Chambers, who scored six and four, respectively. Gilmer the only Class A in the tourney, went on to play against Ravenswoodp who was defeated by Ritchie County. Tug Valley went o n to win the tournament. "Our varsity held Tug Valley to the low forties," stated Chambers. "That's really good, considering they average over 80." "We seemed fatigued at times. We had open looks but just couldn't make our shots," Coach Chambers added. In the consolation game, Gilmer rolled over Class AA Ravenswood 52-36, seeing much better play from senior stand-out Hannah Chambers, who scored 19 points, collected nine rebounds, six assists, and three steals. Erica Williams tallied 13 markers and six rebounds. Also scooting for the Lady Titans were: Stephanie Alfred (8), Camai Roberson (6); An- drea Edwards (4); and Annamoriah Tuell (2). "Erica played well, complimenting Hannah; however, Camai seemed to struggle on offense," said Chambers. The Lady Titans' schedule is one filled with mainly Class AA schools, due to the fact that there aren't too many Class A schools in the area. "We've definitely beefed up our sched- ule this year. It will only prepare us for the postseason to come," Cham- bers said. "I think we've done pretty well so far-I mean, our two losses have come from the No. 2 and No. 3 Class AA schools," Coach Chambers remarked. Indeed, the Lady Titans are making a statement, In both Class AA losses, Gilmer was in the game with three minutes remaining. "We just need to improve our con- ditioning and be more patient. If we can do that, we can accomplish our goals," said Chambers.

In another tough non-conference road game, the Glenville State Col- lege Pioneers traveled to Owensboro, Kentucky on Dec. 20 to face Ken- tucky Wesleyan College. Kentucky Wesleyan, currently ranked 23 na- tionally in NCAA II, has played in the last six NCAA II national champion- ship games. In their storied history, they have won eight national champi- onships. The contest would serve somewhat as a measuring stick for the Pioneers, allowing second-year head coach Chad Hankinson and his team to find out where they are in the build- ing stage of the program. The Pioneers were able to play even in the early minutes, as the score re- mained tied approximately five min- utes into the contest. However, the Panthers began to impose their will on the Pioneers. Kentucky Wesleyan went on a 26-5 run over the next eight minutes of the contest, giving them a 34-13 lead. The Panthers would go to intermission with a 50-31 lead behind the exceptional play o~f Dontae Truitt, who had 21 of his game-high 34 points at halftime The second half started in similar fashion as the first half, with the Pio- neers hanging tough in the opening minutes. However', another big run by the Panthers, this time a 16-0 spurt, would bury the Pioneers for good. The Panthers would cruise from there to an impressive 100-68 victory over the Pioneers. The contest was dominated by the Panthers who shot 59% from the field, including a 10-23 performance from the three point line. They also outrebounded the Pioneers (38-32) and scored 39 points off of Pioneer turnovers. The Pioneers shot only 42% from the field and 52% from the free throw line. Individually, the Pioneers were led by senior Jonathan Burge, who scored 19 points on seven of nine shooting. He also had five rebounds. Junior Briant Taylor chipped in with 13 points on the evening. Senior Andrew Harding was the Pioneers only other player in double figures, as he col- lected 12 points, 10 assists, and five steals. The Pioneers (1-4, 0-0) will take a short break for the Christmas holi- days before returning on December 26. They will travel to play in the Porreco Cup Tournament at Gannon Universitv on December 29-30. The Pioneers will play Gannon on the first day of the tournament and will play either Ferris State University or Cheyney University on the second day. The contest with Gannon is sched- uled for an 8:00 p.m. tip-off. Gilmer represents LKC Football Team The Little Kanawha Conference announced the 2003 AI1-LKC Foot- ball Team on Wed., Dec. 17.
