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!

  • It’s a secret It’s a secret

    Could someone enlighten us about why not even the names of the two entities bidding on development of the Footer Dye Works building can be divulged?
    A Times-News article about the bids included an explanation from a lawyer for the attorney general’s office about the need to keep the names and other information secret at this time. Despite that, the logic of not divulging at least a little more information escapes us.

    Now that Maryland has become the 17th state to (finally) decriminalize possession of marijuana, one could say that the legislature and governor should be patted on the back for doing the right thing.

  • Closing the loopholes will help clear the regulatory waters

    After a decade of uncertainty over Clean Water Act jurisdiction following Supreme Court challenges in 2001 and 2006, the Environmental Protection Agency and Army Corps of Engineers announced a forthcoming administrative rule to close enforcement loopholes, restoring protections to 20 million acres of wetlands, more than half the nation’s streams, and drinking water for 117 million Americans.

  • The first step Remember where your freedom comes from before criticizing

    The deal at Fort Hood could have been avoided if it was caught in time.
    When you think a GI is not acting right, have him or her checked out before you put them back on duty and give them a weapon. Post-traumatic stress disorder is a serious and dangerous problem if it is not taken care of right away.

    Drive anywhere in Maryland and it seems there is one highway construction project after another. While it is good to see our roads and bridges being upgraded, it can be nerve-wracking for anyone traveling a long distance.

  • Midterm elections give chance to return to American values

    A movement has been started by veterans of our armed forces to get out the vote in 2014. That includes Coast Guard and Merchant Marine personnel for those not familiar with the history of both and their sacrifice. This is no small special interest  group, but many millions of Americans who can have an enormous impact on the  outcome of the November election if they all respond.
