Morris Legion baseball players rebounded from their high school team's rough outings in the State Baseball Tournament with a season-opening shutout of Brandon-Evansville Monday at Chizek Field. Craig Knochenmus drove in four runs and Dustin Sauter threw two-hit ball over four innings in Morris' 13-0, five-inning victory. "It was good to see the team staying sharp after a great state tourney run," said Legion coach Brock Paschen. "The defense was solid with no errors." Sauter made his first Legion start a good one, allowing just two walks and striking out four.
A lack of pitching arms ended the Morris Eagles amateur baseball team's run at the Miller Lite Invitational Tournament in Green Isle and Arlington last weekend. But the Eagles scored impressive wins to reach the tournament semifinals, and they've now won six of their last nine games after starting the season 1-5. The Eagles are 7-8 overall and face another busy weekend. They play Brandon-Evansville at 7:30 p.m. today at Chizek Field. On Saturday, the Eagles play Fergus Falls at 11 a.m. and the Minneapolis Angels at 4 p.m. Both games are at Chizek.
Rulon Gardner would have to rank as one of the most unassuming Olympic champions in history. If an Olympic gold medalist were to grace an event in rural Minnesota, you'd probably expect a well-dressed, well-rehearsed 20-minute talk, some autographs and photos and then a quick exit. But that's not Gardner's style.

In lieu of the obvious choices - "Mr. Mom," "Parenthood" - I've chosen a few vintage selections, which may not be as well known. If dad is paying for a wedding: He may enjoy the original "Father of the Bride," starring Spencer Tracy and Elizabeth Taylor.
By William L Bainbridge Perhaps there is at least one magic bullet to help improve our schools. A school system in Mississippi has documented significant gains in student attendance and test scores while reducing dropouts and suspension/expulsion rates. Superintendent Pat Cooper exudes enthusiasm when he talks about the role of comprehensive school health in systemic education reform. Currently leader of the McComb School District in Mississippi, it is no coincidence that Cooper formerly served as executive director of the National School Health Education Coalition. Cooper proclaims, "Sch

Media going 'mad' Motorcycle riders have ridden with and without helmets for decades. Some have been killed with a helmet and without a helmet. But now, after the motorcycle accident by Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, the news media -- especially television -- have gone "mad," calling for helmet laws. The football star was riding a "crotch rocket," not especially known for riders to ride with care, even though I have no idea if Mr. Roethlisberger was among those speeding.

15 Years Ago June 4, 1991 Sun Graduation ceremonies at MAHS included all the familiar trappings: fanning of faces with commencement programs and feverish picture-taking (these days with video cams along with conventional cameras).
