Column: Scandals rock sports world
July 26, 2007
What’s wrong with sports these days? Is it just me or is it more cheerful to watch World’s Wildest Police Chases than turn on an episode of Sportscenter? As a sports junkie, I watch ESPN hoping to see sports highlights and scores. Instead, what do I get?

Coaches spruce up BJHS gym
July 26, 2007

Fundamental focus once again
July 26, 2007
Baldwin High School volleyball coach Kelly Brown liked what she saw from her team at her second annual summer camp. Last week, Brown hosted three volleyball camps, including one for her BHS team. The high school camp drew 30 players, while the junior high and youth camps combined to bring in 40 girls. Brown deemed all three camps successful, especially the turnout. “I was very pleased with the number of girls we had at the camps,” Brown said. “It’s nice to see that many players at a younger age.” The BHS camp took place every morning last week. The junior high camp ran second with the youth camp taking place in the afternoon. Once again Brown focused the camp on fundamentals, because she is a strong believer in her players knowing the basics.

Wesley Callahan won’t be wrapping up his duties as a 4-H member until he finishes up a conference in November, unlike many of his peers.

Callahan, a Palmyra 4-H Club member and recent Baldwin High School graduate, is looking forward to his trip to Atlanta in the fall. “I think it will be a good break from school,” Callahan said. “It will be my last official function as a 4-H’er. I’ll go down there and represent the state at this event.”
