Sines rolls a perfect game; Lowery falls a pin short

Bob Sines rolled a perfect game at Rainbow Lanes scoring 719/300. Two others were near perfect, Cary Lowery scored 782/299 at The Bowler and Jack Hendershot rolled 769/297 at White Oak Lanes.

The area’s top scoring bowler was Randy Likens bowling 791/279 (a lot of strikes in that score as well). Bobby Lannon was next rolling 745/264. Seven 700’s were scored at Rainbow for the week.

Cary Lowery’s 782 was The Bowler’s top followed by Alex Shirey bowling 735/278. The Bowler’s score for 700’s was five (covered 2 weeks).

At White Oak Lanes, Hendershot’s 769 was tied by Darren Durbin rolling 769/277. Teddy Inman scored 718/254. Six 700s were rolled at White Oaks.

Butch Young’s 653/259 was Sherwood’s high for the week. Justin Richards was next rolling 647/244.

In White Oaks PBA Experience League, A.J. Bishop was highest scoring 640/223. Mike Sipple and Josh Barrett were next scoring 630/230 and 609/235, respectively.

Autumn Gable was the top lady bowler for the week scoring 614/233 at White Oaks. Vivian Helsley was next rolling 562/191.

Crystal Uhl‘s 608/212 was highest of the ladies at The Bowler. Dawn House was next rolling 570/194.

Rainbow’s top ladies were Sandy Hott and Dee Self. Hott rolled 579/201 and Self scored 540/203.

Sherwood’s Alice Monahan bowled 506/172 and Ali Eller rolled 485/205.

The area’s top senior for the week was Joe Corbin. Corbin’s score was 594/213 in the Golden Oldies League at The Bowler. Nellie of the Early Birds rolled 495/189. At White Oaks, Jim Edmands bowled 524/223 and Carolyn Hott rolled 503/176.

Kasey Sullivan was the week’s top youth bowler scoring 614/225. Kylie Humbertson bowled 479/161. Rainbow’s youth high was rolled by Konnar Pattison’s 526/208. Kim Northcraft bowled 500/184. At The Bowler Carter Nave scored 507/187 and Hanna Smith rolled 448/203.

A number of bowlers seem to be getting back their bowling form from the summer’s layoff. At least that’s what several 700’s tell me. It could also be improved performance because of experience in the Sport League and also by bowling in more than one bowling center.

I hope to get future columns on a regular weekly basis. No excuses now, my laptop has a new battery and the election is over.

Good luck bowling and have fun striking out!

  • FSU Planetarium has new outreach program

    Several years ago, the FSU planetarium acquired an iPad. Months later, we purchased an iPad projector with necessary cables. I purchased a number of astronomical apps this year for the iPad. So I’m interested in visiting schools in this county to teach the stars and planets to classes. The astronomical apps allow you to survey the current evening night sky and show the planets, bright stars and star groups. One of the apps shows the planets close up with wonderful surface detail (as if you were cruising by in a spaceship). The apps I’ll be using can be purchased from the iTunes app store for a few dollars.

  • O’s, Pirates will be buyers, but when?

    Not that we should expect any blockbuster deals to go down as Thursday’s non-waiver trade deadline approaches, but the names you hear in Baltimore are catcher Kurt Suzuki and starting pitchers Ian Kennedy, A.J. Burnett and Jorge De La Rosa.

  • Peanuts and Cracker Jack beat any foam finger

    Times have changed, and for the better, as this week marks the third year in a row NFL training camps have opened and have not taken center stage in the cities of Baltimore, Pittsburgh and Washington. That, of course, is due to the play of the three baseball teams that inhabit said cities, the Orioles, the Pirates and the Nationals — two of whom hold first place in their respective divisions, with the other one entering play on Wednesday just 2 1/2 games out of first.

  • He means well, and this time they spared his life

    Our pal Phil is the only re-enactor certified in writing by both the Lee and Custis families to portray Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee (whose wife was Mary Anna Custis Lee). When he’s in uniform, he generally stops at the bottom of the path that leads to the summit of Little Round Top, salutes Capt. Gary and First Sgt. Goldy and asks permission to join us. (Get it? Generally ... General Lee?) We always return his salute and grant him permission, in part because he’s our friend and also because the real Lee never got to see what it really looks like from up there. (Get it? Grant ... Grant? U.S. Grant? Real Lee ... really? OK. I hear you. That’s enough. Seriouslee.) Phil gets a kick out of being able to sneak up on us while we’re distracted by tourists.
