Chillin' with Dylan

June 6, 2013

    I don’t want to ruin a great thing by making too many observations and predictions, but it can’t be overstated just how amazing Adams Central’s run has been in the post-season.
    Without going into great detail, I will give a few facts to stew over heading into this weekend.

    Bellmont and Adams Central are once again extending their school year in the spring time thanks to some talented individuals.
    Trying to figure out which even to attend myself is one of my favorite problems to have as a sports editor.
The Squaws are onto something as they head into the weekend’s festivities with high hopes of making noise at the state level. Hankenson is seeded number one in the high jump and could (should) be a state champion in that event.

    Without any games going Friday night I decided to bring out a rare Friday column.
    That’s the good news (or bad depending on who’s reading this).

    Much-needed reforms to Indiana’s criminal code were among the slew of bills approved during this year’s session of the state General Assembly, but in the long view the tinkering finally approved by lawmakers fell well short of meaningful and cost-effective legislation and could even prove to have a detrimental effect on local and state coffers — and the lives of many Hoosiers.

    One of the great purchases in the history of Adams County occurred when the county bought the former Decatur High School. At a low price of around $1 million, the county got what has now taken the place of the courthouse as the hub of county government activities ... plus a number of agencies which serve people.
    Now if county officials could just figure out what to do about a new home for superior court. But that's a story for another day.

    With so many movies being released these days it's hard to decide what movie to rent or watch. If you have a particular favorite genre you usually lean that direction. If you hear from a friend you might use that to decide. Most of us rarely step out of our comfort zone, though.
    Make a decision to do that tonight and rent SILVER LINING PLAYBOOK.

    Let's be honest. Who's not sick of paying too much for clothes they don't really like or don't really look or feel good wearing. But what can you do? It's not like you can make your own custom clothing to look and fit how you want it to....
    Oh, wait. Yes, you can.

    During the People, Places, and Profiles editions of the newspaper a few months back, I wrote an article about the ACAC and NHC. The idea of the piece was to highlight the flaws of the conferences purely based on the size changes of certain schools within the last decade and even longer.
    I’m sure when the conferences were formed the teams were a lot closer in talent level, enrollment, and balance. That’s simply not the case anymore.

    Indiana’s Kernan-Shepard report has been collecting dust for six or more years now, and if a dust-up in Adams County this month is any indication, that comprehensive report is destined to remain mothballed.
