SECTIONALS: County advances 17 grapplers to regionals

January 30, 2012

CARROLL — The year-end wrestling tournament kicked off this weekend with all three Whitley County Schools competing in the Carroll Sectional.
Overall points determine only one team to move on to regionals; a fourth place finish or better on an individual level sends a matman to the next round.

Since 1993, the three schools have accounted for 12 of the 19 team wins at Carroll, including a run of eight straight by Columbia City.

Carroll, who claimed the title in six of the other seven years, won its own sectional with a point total of 187.50.

NEW HAVEN — Columbia City’s girls basketball team began the 2011-12 season expected to finish at the bottom of the conference.

With Saturday’s 55-34 win over New Haven, Col. City finished the season 3-4 in the NHC, good for a fifth-place finish out of eight teams.

DORIS BOGGS: Serving up more than just cookies

January 27, 2012

Doris Boggs had to wait awhile for her interview. Illness, a crazy start to the New Year, and a death in my family kept postponing our time together.
In typical Doris fashion, when I called to reschedule…again…she said, “I was just praying and thinking about your family and the funeral ALL DAY during that awful weather.”
It felt wonderful to know Doris had been praying…but I was not surprised.
Doris was gracious, as usual, as she ushered me past her husband, Bob, and into the dining room area of her home. Bob and Doris have hung around together for a long time—65 years to be exact.
