Scott Hixenbaugh bowled the week’s high set of 812 and a near-perfect game of 298 at Wilson Lanes. Chris Bean, also at Wilson Lanes, scored a 299 game in his 696 set. Chad Gable scored 804/279 at White Oak Lanes. Wow — a big number of strikes tied to those three names, I would guess close to 85.

Following Hixenbaugh’s high, Bob Greene was next high at Wilson Lanes rolling 705/243.

Chad Gable’s 804/279 was White Oak’s high followed by Ron Roach bowling 756/276 in the Friday Night Mixed League.

Bryan Jose scored 769/268 for the Rainbow high. Chris Riggleman was next rolling 697/277 and Adam Braithwaite scored 694/278.

Corey Shirey and Cary Lowery were the high rollers at The Bowler. Shirey bowled 739/254 And Lowery scored 699/268.

Leonard Howsare bowled 684/235 for the Sherwood weekly high. Larry Housel Sr. was next rolling 648/236.

In the PBA Experience League at White Oaks, Bobby Lannon held first place for the week rolling 619/258. Mike Brobst was close behind scoring 615/212 followed by Adam Blackburn bowling 603/211.

Crystal Uhl was the area’s top lady bowler for the week rolling 647/237 at The Bowler. Dawn House was next rolling 625/256.

Autumn Gable was highest of the White Oak ladies scoring 580/225. Vivian Helsley was next rolling 552/237.

Pat Gwizdale bowled 570/192 at Wilson Lanes.

Wendy Atkinson rolled 554/210 for the ladies at Sherwood and Alice Monahan scored 547/195.

Katie Pownell and Dee Self were the top ladies at Rainbow. Pownell bowled 551/188 and Self rolled 547/196.

Senior John Barbe scored 648/227 at The Bowler and Dave Clem rolled 575/202. Beverly Narbut bowled 474/191. At White Oaks, Jim Edmands scored 580/215. Don Shaw rolled 549/210 and Shirley Plummer bowled 465/173.

Kasey Sullivan was the area’s top youth bowler for the week bowling 606/247 at White Oaks. Dylan Bean scored 574/212 and Mariah Snyder rolled 557/222. Frank Llewellyn bowled 583/212 at Wilson Lanes and Katherine Corbin rolled 411/148. Randy Cubbage was the top youth at The Bowler. Kayleigh Fleek scored 485/179. Rainbow’s Kris Tusing rolled 510/187 and Kim Northcraft bowled 465/189.

I hope everyone enjoyed Thanksgiving. We have much to be thankful for and our prayers must go to the many still suffering from the wrath of hurricane Sandy.

Christmas will be here too soon so let’s stay in shape and keep our sanity by bowling at our local center. Good luck bowling and have fun striking out!

  • Restore them Restore them

    There are an estimated 47,000 deceased veterans whose remains are unidentified and unclaimed throughout the U.S. A group of senators and congressmen hope to do something to

  • Happy Easter

    For the world’s more than 2 billion Christians, Easter is the day that defines their faith.
    The exact date of Christ’s resurrection is unknown, and even the precise locations of his crucifixion and burial are uncertain. This hasn’t stopped some people from saying they know the answer to these questions and others from trying to find out for themselves, or simply arguing about it.

  • Odds are good that you didn’t know this

    Odds or Probabilities fascinate many people. There is a special website called www.BookOfOdds.com and an accompanying location on Facebook at /BookofOdds .This website lists 400,000 odds. Three of the people who are involved in this media display have coauthored a book, “The Book of Odds” that presents some of key odds, drawing from polls and statistics published in journals. The authors are A. Shapiro, L.F. Campbell and R. Wright. This paperback was published this year by Harper Collins with ISBN 978-0-06-206085-3.

  • Trivial questions you don’t have to answer

    Every so often in this life, my mind, all on its own, generates questions that have no real answers. So I have decided to pass them on to you. I’m tired of them. If you come up with any answers, let me know. Remember when TV jealously guarded the time zone before 9 p.m. for wholesome shows that children could watch. My gosh, how many years ago was that? It seems like another world nowadays, when you can see murders, torture and rape, or those implied, every hour on the hour, somewhere on your public screen. It might be comforting then, to remember that most children nowadays are glued to their little machines with whole different worlds on them, that they can access all day long. Except that in these different worlds they also can view murders, torture and rape on demand.

  • Think it’s not a small world? You’re wrong

    Yes, you read that right in the paper a couple of weeks ago. I covered a wedding as a newspaper reporter. I’ve retired from doing regular stories because my primary duties lie elsewhere, and I don’t have the time or mental energy for it. But I agreed to do it for a couple of reasons, one of which goes back more than 40 years. The former proprietor of The Famous North End Tavern told me about a wedding that was to take place at the Lions Center for Rehabilitation and Extended Care, where his wife works.

  • No Bambi for you, Mrs. Doe

    Some people want so badly for deer birth control to work that they actually think it will, even on wild populations.
    I wish I had a couple bridges to sell.
    A week ago on the Outdoors page we ran the deer there do what deer  everywhere do. They eat the easiest food available such as gardens and ornamental plantings. They walk in front of moving cars. They give ticks and  parasites a place to live.

  • We concur We concur

    We’re certain that Donald Rumsfeld, who served as Secretary of Defense under Presidents Gerald Ford and George W. Bush, echoes what many Americans feel about the complexity of filing income tax returns.
    When he filed his return, Rumsfeld sent the following letter to the Internal Revenue Service:

  • Terps need to move and move quickly

    The good news is Maryland will never have to play another basketball game in the Atlantic Coast Conference. Goodbye, good riddance, sayonara, smell ya, no more of you, stay classy, we won’t let the door hit us on the way out.
    Until we see you in court.
