Answering phones at the Peru Daily Tribune during 4 weeks of high school basketball tournament, sectionals with all schools, regionals, semi-state and finals.

Passion comes from virtually every high school student attended basketball (boys) Friday nights in small towns and big cities. It was a big deal when small schools advanced, even if it was for only one game and one year. Local newspapers and radio stations covered all those games and the finals at Hinkle Field house had full crowds and radio and television had significant audiences.

Indiana University Soccer #EZ.53005 Exp 05-30
When did the Indiana Hoosiers soccer team start?
Since the program began in 1973, Indiana has more national championships, wins, College Cup appearances, and a higher winning percentage in both regular season and post-season play than any other school in Division I soccer. The Hoosiers have also dominated conference play.
Indiana Hoosiers men's soccer - Wikipedia


Actually it had a club team in the 50's and until it became a varsity sport in 1973 it and other big ten schools which had club teams were eligible to participate in the NCAA tournaments at the end of the season. Elon Rothmuller who played in the late 50's was selected as an All American player.

I played four years in the early 60s and 2 0r 3 times went to the NCAA tournament, although memory is not reliable and I couldn't find any details in the Daily Student or Arbutus for those years.

Coach Jerry Yeagley's first year in 1964 was my senior year and it took 10 years to advance to a varsity status. The program is now highly regarded as one of the best in the nation.

Hi, dmn (been a while since I typed that),

It will be next week or the week after, though. I am tied up in editing and designing an 80th anniversary publication for the Hoosier State Press Association — you remember it — and I have until the weekend to finish a 64-page tab. I have 20 pages finished right now, so that tells you what I will be doing with my hours away from my day job this week and weekend. I have been so busy with stuff that I must admit that I have not even looked at the links you sent. I will, however, before we meet by phone and will share them with the group.

And while I have your eyes, Don, let me say that I never appreciated how good Nixon Newspapers was and how good you were as a publisher until some years after I was gone. My days in Wabash, as I look back with white hair, were the best of my career. Yes, I was in some ways a bigger dog in Terre Haute at the papers here, but it never was as much fun, it was never as good of a culture, it was never as positive a place as was Wabash. When I think about a paper being connected with its community, I think of Wabash in those days when NNI was in charge. I really felt that we in the PD newsroom — and the PD in every department -- got to know the community and appreciate it, even though we had a changing cast of characters.

I also know now, which I didn’t know then, how much you let us, encouraged us to effectively experiment. Take the Saturday tab for instance. You gave us a toy and let us play with it. That was gutsy, given that we were all pretty much 20-something snots.

I also recall what I call big ideas that you and Ray foisted upon us — the Sunday paper covering the ceremony of the Wabash light, Ray and Harold’s trip to the Jimmy Carter White House, the Jane Pauley tab, the Bicentennial edition, the 1979 anniversary edition, the Ray Kroc tab. That proved to me that it did not take a major metro to do major metro kinds of projects. Hard work — damn straight! — but rewarding, educational and, after the pain ceased, points of pride.

For all of that and more memories whose brain cells have died, I thank you, first. I thank your late, great dad. And as I often have, I thank Ray, who I generally call or e-mail on Sept. 15, the day I started at the PD (1976).

I regret I was not more appreciative at the time and that I was often a problem in my behavior. If I could take back anything in my professional life, it would not be mistakes or bad news judgments, it would be bad behavior. It’s a wonder I wasn’t fired over and over and over. I deserved it too many times. Thank you for your support.

I still have, BTW, notes you sent me, usually written in blue grease pencil if I recall correctly, complimenting the newsroom on one thing or another. Those are still meaningful and will stay in my files as long as I live.

More than you wanted to know, dmn, but I never could write short!

Peace, love and rock-and-roll,

New Ratings Announced for Pickleball

PickleballTournaments.com is proud to announce the creation of new ratings system called the World Pickleball Ratings. This new system will provide the most accurate pickleball rating by using tournament match results (sanctioned and non-sanctioned) as well as recreation match results from leagues, team pickleball, and pick-up matches.

The World Pickleball Rating has been designed from the ground up to accurately place new players into the ratings system and to adjust existing rated players based on their match results. An important component of the new system will address “sandbagging” by players new to the ratings system.

The World Pickleball Ratings will include the following capabilities:
Use of the Glicko 2 rating system
Several controls will be implemented to control sandbagging
4-digit ratings will be calculated for singles, doubles and mixed doubles across men and women.
2-digit ratings will be calculated at the end of each calendar quarter based on the level of a player’s 4-digit ratings. These ratings will be used for tournament entry into non-sanctioned tournaments. T

The World Pickleball Ratings will:

Automatically include match results from sanctioned and non-sanctioned tournaments run on pickleballtournaments.com. Tournament directors will have the option to exclude match results from their tournament in WPR calculations. No need to upload results through an app after each match.
Generate graphs of each player’s ratings changes on a match-by-match basis.
Incorporate league and team pickleball matches

Ratings based on historical matches will be calculated and posted to player's pickleballtournaments.com profiles within 60 days with integration into tournament registration and play to follow shortly thereafter.

US Open Pickleball Championships™ #EZ.53103 Exp 05-20
History lesson:
Helped establish the Indiana State Racquetball Association and Wilson Sporting Goods was principal sponsor to the "Tour of Indiana" series of tournaments.

After playing racquetball with Mrarco Island friends in 2010 a few (Howard Reed and Bruce Hayne) introduced pickleball as an upcoming activity with tournaments in LaBelle FL, I made contact with Wilson to consider working with me to establish pickleball in Naples FL for outdoor and planned a separate event for indoor at French Lick IN. (See: https://www.usopenpickleballchampionship.com) - notice the missing "s"?

Wabash Racquetball Court #EZ.53009 Exp 05-30
Price:  $50.00 / Annual dues

After the Auburn Evening Star and Printing Company was sold I moved back to Wabash. Several store fronts on Wabash Street between the Plain Dealer building on Canal Street and Hill Street at the top of the hill, were not popular for walk in traffic. Turns out the one empty at the alley was at one time Mark Honeywell's Plumbing and Heating Office.

Although only 20 by 60, I was enough interested in racquetball, it was sufficient to put in a court and an office in front with a small locker and a small apartment upstairs.

I charged an annual $50 fee, guaranteed an hour each week to play and open play for times not reserved for number of members limited to 50. Honor system and if there was something wrong when a member arrived, the previous member who signed in was responsible for damages. Never had a problem.
