Abuse of Power

July 12, 2013
By

More and more it seems people in positions of leadership find themselves tempted to push the envelop so far that they get in trouble and at best just lose their jobs, but in many cases wind up being arrested. With the plethora of electronic devices you would think they might get the word you...

Slow Play

July 11, 2013
By

Does it bother you how long a baseball game lasts these days? The College World Series finals this year is a prime example. UCLA and Mississippi State were taking two to three minutes between pitches because each coach was trying to outfox the other. The UCLA catcher would not call a pitch until his...

Billy McCool

July 10, 2013
By

Recently the name Billy McCool was mentioned during a Reds ball game. The Lawrenceburg, Indiana, native was a star reliever for the Reds for several seasons. He was the original bullet throwing lefthander before Aroldis Chapman came along. I don’t know if Bill ever reached 100mph on the gun which was very new in...

By

I know that all of you have been approached to contribute to at least one fund raiser this year so far. Some are well worth the cause and are easy to contribute to because of the good they will do. What you must watch out for is who is doing the fund raiser. Only...

Family Fun

July 8, 2013
By

We recently attended a Cincinnati Reds Baseball Game. It is not unusual for two tickets to run more than $100. I know that the Reds have ticket plans that give discounts to families on certain days or for certain games. For example, Monday nights are usually cheaper than any weekend game, but still for...

How about the U.S. Open Golf Tourney a few weeks back? When is the last time it looked like your game on a course around here? How long has it been since a pro tourney was won with a “+” golf score? I know people like to watch the world’s best shoot -20 in...

Fourth of July

Where is Ernie Banks? When Ernie played for the Cubs, they would ask him if he liked playing a double-header on the 4th; and his answer always was “it is such a nice day, let’s play 3.” Today you not only will not see a double-header, but you may not see every team even...

At the banquet preceding the Midwest Meet of Champions in Ft. Wayne that I talked about yesterday, they honored coaches from Indiana, Ohio, and Michigan who have coached 50 or more years. Ohio had 2 and Indiana had 6. I happened to be one of them. The others included Bill Welch (Rose Hulman), Jim...

Midwest Meet of Champions

July 2, 2013
By

I think I wrote about going to the MMC in Ft. Wayne a few weeks back. This is an amazing track meet and only one of two such meets left in the United States. The other I believe is the Keebler Championship Meet. All the others have succumbed to financial woes. The Neeley Twins...

Women Who Coach

July 1, 2013
By

A couple of weeks ago I wrote an article on the time-consuming job of men coaching in high school. Today I am writing about the other side of the coin–women coaching in high school. Here it is the husband who has to take over the day-to-day running of the household. This is not overwhelming...
