St. Peter Catholic School had two teams to participate in the NC FIRST Lego League Championship tournament in Greensboro last month.

Of the nearly 60 teams competing, the WiredCats Blue had the 11th highest score in the autonomous robot game competition, and the WiredCats Green had the 16th highest score.

The WiredCats teams qualified for the state championship because of their performance at last fall's FIRST Lego League Regional Qualifying Tournament, where they were among six teams selected from the 20 that participated. At the regional competition, Wiredcats Green won the engineering project presentation trophy for its robotic composting toilet. Wiredcats Blue won the robotic programming trophy.

Wiredcats Blue team members are Andrea Castillo, Jamie Galinis, Lauren Hodgson, Brighton Hou, Carter Lamson, Tiago Marlow, Stuart O'Connor, Jasmine Pandya, Jeremiah Reid and Gerald Reiling.

Wiredcats Green team members are Skyler Barnaby, Lincoln Bond, Alex Cooper, Frankie Kennedy, Jason Napast, Elliana Proctor, Jackson Schreiber, Alexander Turner and Rylan Tuten.

The teams are coached by John Bell and Kevin Pandya. Former St. Peter students Allanah Napast, Ryan Moloney and Nate Hasselbach, who are now in high school, served as mentors this season.

The first mistake was opening the refrigerator door. I opened it silently, but it emits a silent sound unknown to science that only cats can hear. From under the bedcovers at the other end of the house. And they do not need to walk or run to the refrigerator to inspect what I'm doing. One second,…

As I write this review, it’s still up in the air whether Kevin Hart will host this year’s Academy Awards. He was picked because he’s funny, he’s a performer of color, and his star was on the ascendance.

But someone dug up old comments by Hart that were homophobic. The…

ARBA — Sybil Thomas is not your average “little old lady.”

Rather than bemoaning the aging process, she has walked right up to it, looked it dead in the eye and given it an impish wink.

Thomas celebrated her 100th birthday Dec. 30, surrounded by friends and family at Hull Road…

Q: I don’t think my mom ever used anything other than salt, pepper, and cinnamon to flavor food. She said it was silly and expensive to a container and then use only ¼ teaspoon. I am intrigued by the possibility that some herbs might be helpful in controlling inflammation. Can…

It was in 1983 that parents told leaders of the Diocese of Lafayette, Louisiana, west of New Orleans, that Father Gilbert Gauthe had molested their sons.

Dominos started falling. The bishop offered secret settlements to nine families — but one refused to remain silent.

The rest is a long,…
