    It's almost here, Jet fans. AC's best chance at a state-title ever continues on Saturday with a visit to North Judson. If you've got no plans for the weekend and you're looking for a basketball game to watch, you might as well get over to the regionals because Adams County has not had a team this good since Arnold, Richie, and Schultz donned Braves uniforms at the same time.

    Uh oh, lock the doors. Pull the curtains. Turn out the lights and turn off the TV. Hide the women and children. Here comes a Girl Scout up the sidewalk!
    She'll probably want to sell us those cookies, and she'll give her nose a tweak with the thumb — you know, mobster style — and say, "You don't have to buy buddy, but..."

    It's always a pleasure to find a movie that you thought would be terrible and be proven wrong. After the disaster that was GULLIVER'S TRAVELS I was certain that THE BIG YEAR starring Jack Black would be another travesty of film with him mugging for the camera the same way he always does. Instead I found a delightful film that I know I could watch again and enjoy.

    Sectional basketball is here at last. Firstly though, Bellmont deserves all the props in the world for continually year-in and year-out dominating the wrestling world in Indiana. Even after 25+ years of Bellmont heroics, the big schools like Perry Meridian still look over their shoulders and worry about when they’ll have to face the scrappy Braves.

    Mike Snyder may have been a last-minute filer as a candidate for Indiana’s 79th House district seat, but the decision to make his first foray into the world of elected politics was not a rush to judgement. In fact, it was a decision that was some 25 years in the making.
    Snyder, a Democrat, filed the necessary paperwork with the Indiana Secretary of State’s office on Feb. 9 to launch his candidacy for the House seat currently held by Berne Republican Matt Lehman.

    Hey, let's chalk one up for the city guys!
    Jeremy Gilbert and Verlin Butcher start discussing the IDEM sewer mandate and how much it's likely to cost the city, including the usual steep engineering fees, and — BINGO! — they come up with a plan which is destined to save the City of
Decatur some big-time bucks.

    It's hard to believe that it's actually been 25 years since PHANTOM OF THE OPERA the musical was first performed. It remains fresh for the thousands who see it performed to this day. I was fortunate enough to see it performed live in both Chicago and Cleveland and it still gives me chills to think of the opening.

    Ten minutes after Bellmont was eliminated from the 17th and last (for now) IHSAA Team State Wrestling Finals Saturday, there they were, standing toe to toe, the IHSAA Commissioner Bobby Cox and Bellmont wrestlng coach Brent Faurote. They weren't exchanging pleasantries.
