Tourney had positives for all teams

By Bill Barrows

This year’s Wabash County Basketball Tourney had a little bit of a number of positive things. Other than the teams competing at a higher level, the highlight was an individual achievement by a classy youngster, more on that later.

This is the traditional halfway point of the season. Not every team had success, but every program did, in my eyes .... stay with me on this. Only one team from each gender went undefeated and won the title. But each program sparkled in one way or another.

Is pro football headed down the wrong road?
By Bill Barrows
 
Is it just me or is the NFL becoming less interesting to watch?  I have been a Colts fan my entire life, dating back to the mid 60’s when my dad introduced me to it on an old black and white television. There was a slumped shouldered quarterback with black high topped shoes and a flat top haircut named Johnny Unitas that captured my imagination. I’ve been a Colts fan ever since, through thick and thin. I loved watching them through the Manning era and up until now, even thru Andrew Luck’s injury plagued career.
