  • Yankees' spending not...

    After the New York Yankees spent $423.5 million for free agent pitchers C.C. Sabathia and A.J Burnett and first baseman Mark Teixera this winter, I told a friend that everyone in the sports media would again pick them to win the World Series.

    “Not everyone,” he said, expecting that I would pick the Boston Red Sox instead.

  • Chinn unanimous choice as all-...

    Voters for this year’s All-Perry County boys basketball team pretty much agreed on four spots on the team, but there was a wide variety of choices for the fifth spot.

    As usual voting was done by the three county coaches, the three who coached against all three county teams (Kelly Ballard of Evansville Day, Kevin Oxley of Tecumseh, and Rob Schulte of South Spencer), and me, who saw each county team play at least nine times.

    Tell City guard Andy Chinn, Perry Central forward Reuben A. Schwartz and Cannelton guard Tyler Aud were unanimous choices of the voters.
