Back in the sixties a new sort of character was formed in movies. This was the anti-hero, a person who did the right things but not always for the right reason and who always seemed to do things in the most unorthodox and unapproved ways.
Where this was usually the odd man out during the time it eventually became the norm rather than the exception. Over the past few years there haven't been that many successful anti-heroes out there. With JACK REACHER that all changes.

The rate of youth using alcohol for the first time doubles in the months of June and July, largely due to summer being an unsupervised time when teens are alone or with their peers.

Happy 4th of July, everyone. I hope the fireworks, family, friends and food was as amazing for you as it was for me.
It’s not very often that I get to sit in on a professional press conference but the opportunity presented itself last week when Sycamore Hills hosted an event for several media members in the region at their clubhouse in support for the upcoming PGA event in September.
As the NBA goes, it will never be as popular as the NFL. The Heat and Spurs gave it a good go on Thursday night, however, leaving basketball fans breathless with big shot after big shot ending with LeBron and company’s second straight title.
If you’re like me and you don’t live in Miami, the outcome of the game probably made you sick to your stomach.

I already know what some readers will think when I write this but it needs to be said anyway...
Adams Central’s run in softball and baseball was phenomenal. Period.
Say what you want, non-AC fans. Tell me I’m a traitor for liking the Jets more than Bellmont or South Adams. Remind me that I graduated from there and clearly still have too much invested at that school to properly cover all three schools equally.

The recent passing of Carl Bennett at the age of 97 may well have taken the last living link to Zollner Piston basketball in Fort Wayne.
The Pistons, of course, played for years in Fort Wayne under the stewardship of industrialist Fred Zollner and were the key reason the Memorial Coliseum was constructed. Zollner played a major role in the merger that birthed the National Basketball Association (NBA); in fact, the deal was hammered out in his home.
