The 175th anniversary celebration of Decatur's founding began with a bang, with numerous events last weekend.
One of the highlights was the screenings of "Hoosiers" and "Rudy" with David Anspaugh on hand to narrate and provide autographs.
Brad Boyle, a Bellmont grad who played Whit in the film, and director Anspaugh, a 1965 Decatur High School grad, both attended the "Hoosiers" screening.
