  • Cannelton girls cruise past Columbus Christian

    COLUMBUS—Sarah Powers scored 27 points as Cannelton crushed Columbus Christian 67-18 in girls basketball Monday.

    Thus Cannelton raced to a 43-4 halftime lead.
    Powers made several layups in transition as she hit 10 of 20 shots from two-point range and 4 of 4 free throws. But she made only 1 of 10 three-point shots.

  • Anti-class basketball bill has no business in state legislature

    The anti-class basketball bill that Sen. Mike Delph, R-Carmel, has introduced in this session of the Indiana legislature is consistent with state Republicans’ attempts to bludgeon the little guy.
    Like the so-called “right-to-work” bill (which would actually lead to less tolerable working conditions) that Republicans are pushing, Delph’s bill would make it hard for the little guy to get a fair shot.
    In this case the little guy is  every small school in the state.

    Now to be fair, some right-to-work states are ranked above Indiana in that survey, but a lot of them are ranked below us.
