  • You know, that there, you know, ain’t right

    Back in the days of Mike Gminski and Gene Banks, Duke University hired someone to coach its basketball players on how to speak properly in interviews.
    I’m not sure if any team still does that, but judging by the number of “you knows” I hear in nearly every interview with a sports figure—usually about two per sentence—I doubt it.

    PAOLI—Using a variety of weapons, Paoli amassed 414 total yards in a 30-6 PLAC football victory over Perry Central Friday.
    The Rams rushed for 255 yards on 45 carries and completed 9 of 16 passes for 159 yards.
    Quarterback Lee Wro-blewski, who had been sidelined two weeks with an injury, did most of the passing. But he also caught a 38-yard pass from Garrett Strange—and looked healthy doing it—late in the first half to set up a field goal by Strange.

  • Outdated drugs to be collected Saturday

    PERRY COUNTY - The fall drug-takeback event is scheduled for Sept. 29 at the fire stations and Leopold clinic locations used previously, according to Ken Smith, director of the Perry County Recycling Management District.

    Kashyab then beat Dugan Kippenbrock of Heritage Hills 6-1, 6-2 for the title.

  • Jasper’s invitational meet canceled

    JASPER—Jasper’s cross country invitational is always a good sectional preview, as it is run on the same course as the sectional will be two weeks later and nearly all the sectional teams compete in it.
    It also gives first-year varsity runners a chance to get familiar with the sectional course before the sectional.
    If they get that chance this year, though, it will have to be in practice, as the invitational was canceled Tuesday.
    Jasper officials notified teams at 10 a.m. that the races would not be run.
