Amateurs can pay to play against, with pros
This past week local bowlers put up some big scores. At White Oaks, youth bowler Kasey Sullivan rolled a big 712 series. High games for the men for the week were Matt Riley with a 300 game at the Bowler and Derek Yates with a 299 at Rainbow. High Series was Keefe Kaylor with a fantastic 819 featuring a 276 game at The Bowler. Bryan Jose had 757 with a 288 game at Rainbow and Billy Kyle rolled 748 with a 267 game. Autumn Grant’s 670 was the high women’s series this week.
Our skies unmatched in the solar system
In less than a year, our public planetarium programs will resume in the Multi-media Learning Center (MLC) in the CCIT building at Frostburg State. CCIT stands for Center for Communication and Information Technology. I am hoping to start our public programs with a review of recent weather events, illustrated by pictures of local clouds. For some of the most beautiful sights in nature, easily visible to the eye are the clouds that pass over us each day.
It was much better than a $500 dinner
When Capt. Gary and First Sergeant Goldy took a break from Gettysburg Eddie’s and walked out into Steinwehr Avenue, we were greeted by a cascade of aerial explosions maybe half a mile away.

Wear hearing aids; you won’t be sorry
For 40 or 50 years I have worn hearing aids, and all I can say is, God bless whoever invented them! According to Google, it was in the 17th century, but you’d never know it to look at them. Ear trumpets are not what I’m talkin’ about!
Off-road trails eyed for state wildlife site
The Maryland Department of Natural Resources is proposing to establish two off-road vehicle trails on the Sideling Hill Wildlife Management Area in Washington County.
Cleaning the gutters
Since bowling’s “season” starts in the fall, I thought “Cleaning the Gutters” was an appropriate name for this column. I want to thank the Times-News for allowing the sport of bowling to be covered each week. I will do my best to carry on the tradition of the previous columnists, Bill Menges and Howard “Pete” Peterson.
