Spare shooting is still the number one problem that keeps the averages from climbing. The ten Pin seems to get most of the blame. Bowlers need to LEARN how to throw a straight ball to consistently hit that pin. If you must throw your hooking strike ball, your aim should be in the area of five to ten feet from the pin deck in order to contact the dry area for the hook to be effective in straightening the path from it’s cross alley direction.

Good luck bowling and have fun striking out!

    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.

  • 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.

  • Midterm elections give chance to return to American values
