    Bob Adams says the different teams didn't begin to look alike after awhile, but, "I'll tell you, I sure was tired of talking."
    Adams was talking a bunch on Memorial Day; a big bunch. And traveling, too.
    In a period of roughly 12 and a half hours, 10 a.m. to 10:30 p.m., he broadcast not one, not two, but three baseball games for WZBD. And traveled 90 or so miles when not sitting in front of a mike.

    As long as Adams Central’s Lady Jets and Bellmont’s Braves continue to win, I will continue to have something incredible to talk about in June.
    I think that it’s been understated just how impressive AC has been. It started out as a first when the Jets won their first sectional ever over Bishop Luers. After the one-run victory, it seemed that they were fortunate just to be moving on.
    Then they won again.

    I’m a big fan of movies. Not new movies; I haven’t been to a theater in a decade — in part because I’m too cheap to shell out $10 for what will probably be a lousy flick anyway.
    But give me an old movie any day, any time, and I’ll be a happy camper. I’ll gladly watch Casablanca or Cool Hand Luke for the umpteenth time. Same goes for anything Bogey and Bacall (To Have and Have Not and Key Largo are particular favorites). Or almost anything Alfred Hitchcock ever directed.

    Technology is moving swiftly throughout the nation and world, and emergency services units in Decatur and Adams County aren't being left behind.
    Decatur City Council recently approved the expenditure of a little over $16,000 — money already budgeted becoming available through merging dispatch systems — to link the city with the Sungard Management Sysem installed by the sheriff's department at its communications center in the county jail.

    If you like to read, especially modern mystery novels, then you've heard the name Janet Evanovitch. Evanovitch has made tons of money by writing the best-selling series of novels based on her character Stephanie Plum, a young New Jersey girl (completely unlike those seen on JERSEY SHORE) who, while seeking employment, becomes a bounty hunter. Now Plum has made her way to the big screen (and small screens with DVD) and done so in style.

    The people have spoken.    
    And we’re not necessarily talking about Hoosier Republicans here, even the 61 percent of them who — for reasons difficult to fathom — voted for Richard Mourdock in Tuesday’s U.S. Senate race against Dick Lugar.

    There will be 383 teams fighting for four state titles later this month as the IHSAA has announced the sectional pairings for the 46th annual state baseball tournament.
    The Braves, Jets and Stars all have posted stellar records thus far this season and look to make some noise in the tourney.

Activist judges.
    It’s a phrase most often churned out by Republicans, tea party sympathizers or right wing extremists (if that combination seems redundant, it’s because most often it is) following court decisions which don’t match their particular ideals.
