  • CHS Hall of Famers interacted...

    The upcoming first class of Cannelton High School’s Athletic Hall of Fame spans a wide time frame, with William “Buddy” Bennett starting his high school career in the 1930s and Kathy Alvey playing her entire high school career in the 1980s.
    But still it appears that all five of the Hall of Famers interacted with all the others at some level.
    Alvey mentioned Monday that Bennett, then serving as Cannelton’s Summer Recreation Director, gave her her first baseball uniform when she was 7.

    ROCKPORT – Gant Miller has a big decision coming up and he’s still undecided.

    Miller, a 2016 Tell City graduate and three-sport athlete for the Marksmen, is currently enrolled to begin classes next month at Western Kentucky University. However, there’s an opportunity for him to continue his baseball career elsewhere.

    As a senior, Miller batted .315 in 23 games. He finished with 16 RBIs, 16 runs scored and finished his high school career with a .345 batting average.

  • Title with Warriors won’t mean...

    A team wins the NBA title one year and wins a league-record 73 games the next season and makes it back to the playoff finals but falls just short in a seven-game series.
    Obviously that team needs major help, so it goes out and signs a free agent who is a former league Most Valuable Player and four-time league scoring champion.
    That scenario may sound implausible, but that is exactly what the Golden State Warriors did in acquiring Kevin Durant this week.
