Baseball Players

January 30, 2015
By

When baseball players retire, they seem to fair much better than their counterparts in basketball and football.  One reason for this is that they usually come from different backgrounds than the basketball and football players come from.  They also have a different mentality because they are usually older when they make it to the...

Even though Andrew Luck did not get his Indianapolis Colts into this year’s Super Bowl, he is in line to become the highest paid player in football within the next year.  When Aaron Rodgers of the Green Bay Packers signed a contract for 22 million per year, it set the stage for Andrew Luck to demand...

I guess the New England Patriots Bill Belichick and Tom Brady are at it again.  I know you have heard by now that they found 11 of the 12 game balls used by the New England Patriots were 2 pounds below playing weight.  Everyone theorizes that this was done to help Brady, his receivers,...

Bill Belichick is coach of the New England Patriots.  If they can win two more games, he will have his 4th Super Bowl Championship.  It would tie him with Chuck Noll (Pittsburgh) with the most Super Bowl wins for a coach.  At this time, the Patriots are definitely one of the favorites to do so....

When most people think of urban renewal, their thoughts go to upgrading buildings, streets, and the like.  Mike Larson, the defensive coordinator for the Wendall Phillips Academy football team in Chicago, has his own version of urban renewal.  When school ended last spring, he told Jamal Brown that his summer assignment was to stay alive....

LeBron James and Cleveland

January 20, 2015
By

When the Miami Heat failed to win last year’s NBA championship, several of their star players bolted.  The main one, of course, was LeBron James who went back to the Cleveland Cavaliers.  This has been a feel-good story for all of sports.  Most writers feel that James’s relationship with northeast Ohio is bigger than basketball. ...

22nd Annual Metamora Grad School... @ Old School Grounds Shelter House
Sep 5 @ 12:00 pm
This is a casual reunion for anyone who ever attended Metamora Grade School, and an excellent opportunity to reminisce about the good ‘ole days at Metamora School. Take yourself back in time as you visit with some of your former schoolmates. The Metamora School days are remembered by many from this era as days of hardships, yet they also remain as some of their fondest memories of youth. The school has been gone about 36 years now, since about 1979. Please feel welcome to bring your family, old photographs or class pictures, or any old school mementos. All ages are welcome. Attendance in past years has ranged from 25 – 100. This event is very informal and will begin with a pitch-in lunch at noon. Dress appropriately for visiting at the outside, open shelter. Restrooms are available a couple hundred yards away at the State Building. Please bring a covered dish and your own beverage. Let’s keep our memories of the old school alive as long as we’re alive. Call Jim Hunter at 812-350-8253 for more information.
