Hop's Heresy-A dream week, no doubt

July 12, 2013

    Imagine a camp where 1,200 kids, 300 coaches and 90 umpires assemble for one week, and the only real subject is baseball!
    Got some possibilities, huh?
    Then, put the camp in the mountains of upper New York, only a few miles from the National Baseball Hall of Fame, with games slated at 22 well-manicured fields.
    Now you're talking!

    We're nearing the Major League Baseball All-star game and while I don't usually talk too much about the regular season because I think it's entirely too long and drawn out, I am making the exception this week because I've had too many fantastic discussions about the Dodgers' phenomenal rookie, Yasiel Puig.

    U.S. Rep. Marlin Stutzman, who represents Adams County and other Hoosiers in Indiana’s 3rd Congressional District, apparently believes poor people shouldn’t eat. So, too, do other Republican extremists in the House of Representatives.

    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.

Chillin' with Dylan—A look at the NBA Finals

June 21, 2013

    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.

    GAS CITY —  Bellmont took step No. 1 on its mission to win a 10th...
