Ray Foster was the week’s top senior bowler for the week scoring 617/224 at The Bowler. Vivian Helsley rolled 555/205 also at The Bowler. At White Oaks, Jim Edmands bowled 556/201 and Loretta Stickley scored 537/183.

Danny Walch rolled 710/259 at The Bowler and was the week’s top youth bowler. Randy Cubbage rolled 653/227. At White Oaks, Tanner Smith bowled 612/213 and Kasey Sullivan rolled 601/235. Brent Schofield scored 572/213 at Rainbow Lanes.

Making spares is still the primary problem for most bowlers. I continue to advise that you must learn to throw a straight ball at spares in order to make a significant improvement in your bowling average. The two-handed bowling craze that seems to be attracting a number of young bowlers also subject to spare problems. Those bowlers must learn that lesson as well. It is not difficult to control the direction of the rotation using two hands but it is easier if you use a finger or two for the best accuracy.

Good luck bowling and have fun striking out!

    Most folks know about the 20th Maine’s bayonet charge that repulsed the Rebels at Little Round Top because they watched the movie, “Gettysburg.”

  • Then again, he’s manager of the Yankees, and I’m not

    I went to bed confused Wednesday night, which in itself is nothing new. But having
    watched most of the Orioles-Yankees game, including the final three innings, earlier
    in the evening, then watching the late Baseball Tonight before I turned in, I was under the impression that the Yankees had won the game when I was pretty sure before watching the show that the Orioles had won.

    I am a dog.
    Therefore I bark.
    I don’t understand why it is so hard for humans to understand this.
    I mean, there are certain things that come with the territory, right?
