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!

  • Time to do it Time to do it

    It never made sense that criminal background checks were not made on medical license applications in Maryland. Fortunately — for the protection everybody — the background investigations may soon be a matter of routine.

  • If you don’t like the way things are going, vote to change them

    I daily hear complaining about the decline of America. I also hear people say that things will only get worse and there is nothing we can do about it. Admittedly, I used to be like this.

  • Thanks for publishing both sides, but only one was right

    Kudos to the Cumberland Times-News for publishing opposing Reader Commentaries (“Other groups get county funds, so should CHCO” and “No public funding for extremist organization,” July 30); a relatively minor issue, but a great demonstration of our cherished “Freedom of the Press.”

  • Hold on a minute ... we know these guys

    Tom Bosley says this isn’t the Garrett County revival of “Space Cowboys”. They’re just getting the band back together — Bosley, Don Stemple, Oren Yoder and Matt Redinger. They’ve been there, done that, and they’re ready, willing and able to be there and do it again.

  • State would require disclosure of chemicals used at well sites

    A recent article (“Docs want full disclosure of chemicals that would be used in fracking process,” July 21, Page 1A) and editorial (“No secrets: Chemical use in fracking a concern to all,” July 22) in the Times-News might have caused confusion about Maryland’s proposal on public disclosure of chemicals used in hydraulic fracturing.

  • If we don’t sell it to them, somebody else will

    The front page article on coal exports by AP writer Dina Cappiello is one of the most asinine and biased “news” articles I’ve read (“Not in my backyard: U.S. sending dirty coal abroad,” July 29 Times-News, Page 1A).

  • Not a villain Not a villain

    Time was that we looked for heroes. Heroes of the make-believe variety have sold a lot of comic books. We also had real-life heroes like Presidents Franklin D. Roosevelt and John F. Kennedy, whose deaths the whole nation mourned.
    These days, we seem to be more interested in looking for villains. “Vote for me because I’m the good guy” has taken a back seat to “Don’t vote for him, because he’s the bad guy.”
