    The lockout notwithstanding, there have already been an abundance of storylines in the NBA to follow even if you are a casual basketball fan. The shortened season has brought with it an abundance of injuries mainly due to players in full-season swing without having an actual training camp session this year. Throw in pre-season trades, controversy, and surprise teams and we have the NBA 2012 season thus far.

    It's that time of year again where you're supposed to make a New Year's resolution that you're going to stick to for about a week and then forget about. This year mine is not eating after 10 p.m. because I'm getting a little extra stuffing going on in the torso area and it's starting to make my wife nervous.

    On this merriest of days, let me be, if not the first, then certainly the most enthusiastic of well-wishers to offer to you all a hearty “Merry Solstice.”
    It’s my favorite day of December; heck ... probably the best day on the calendar since the chill of October muscled September out of its path.

    Adams County Economic Development Director Larry Macklin, Decatur Mayor
John Schultz and other local officials would like nothing better than to sometime this weekend unwrap a gift containing the name of a buyer for the onetime Decatur Casting Co. site.
    It won't happen this weekend — Santa's not THAT good! — but it could happen in the future. Maybe. Enough people have been working hard to make it happen, that's for sure.

    There was a time when revenge films played at drive-ins across the country. Low-budget efforts that made stars of actors like Charles Bronson and Jan Michael Vincent were hits and led them to bigger and better things. These films were so successful that major studios began making them as well. COLUMBIANA shows that it continues to do so.

    A couple of Republican lawmakers in Indiana want welfare recipients to pass drug tests before they can receive benefits. Sen. Jean Leising, R-Oldenburg, and Rep. Heath VanNatter, R-Kokomo, are having bills drafted to submit when the next legislative session begins January 4.

Lumps of coal in sports

    It took me a long time to grow this Christmas beard, but I’m happy with the results. Merry Christmas early to everyone. I hope everybody gets exactly what they want for Christmas.
    I know I will...six NBA games in one day! It’s about time.
    In sticking with the festive themes, I thought a lot about the Christmas spirit and the good boys and girls who get what they ask from Santa Claus.

    I was going over the Indiana AP polls for boys basketball pre-season and I couldn't help but notice that AC wasn't on there. The Jets opened their season with probably their toughest challenge they will face until sectionals and possibly beyond in the Norwell Knights.
