KNOX â A sleeping giant woke up Friday night.
After two straight games where its offense sputtered and stalled, John Glennâs running game finally showed up in a 32-18 romp over Knox.
Derek Hiler rushed for 133 yards and a touchdown, Adam Dodson had 56 yards and two touchdowns, and Zach Combes scored a touchdown while gaining 96 yards of his own to lift the Falcons to their first victory of the high school football season.
Lions lose 2nd straight in NSC opener at New Prairie
Defending Northern State Conference champion Bremen gave up 34 points in the second half â including three scores in the third quarter â and the Lions lost their NSC opener at New Prairie Friday night, 41-14.
The Cougars chewed up 318 rushing yards to 122 by Bremen, which gained most of its yards in the air as the Lions registered a 14-31-1 passing clip for 215 yards at the game, including touchdown passes of 12 and 34 yards from Kai Slough to Ethan Pike and Eric Knepper, respectively.
BREMEN âÂ Jake Sahlhoff, 26, of Bremen, is currently undergoing treatment for a rare and aggressive form of eye cancer at the Bascom-Palmer Eye Insititute at the University of Miami, Fla.
Besides the stress that comes with being sick and far from home, Sahlhoff is also concerned with one important thing â how to pay for his treatment.
Sahlhoffâs health insurance plan, through his job at Gurley Leep, is not covering the procedure.
PLYMOUTH â Everyone knows that fairs and festivals have no shortage of fried food. This weekend, you can at least claim to be meeting your daily produce requirements by picking up some fried blueberries from Argos resident Bryan McGowen's new stand, located near the tennis courts in Centennial Park.
McGowen has owned Bryan's Concessions for 10 years, and has been trying to "break into" the Blueberry Festival for just as long.

PLYMOUTH â Thomas A. Flynn, son of Tom and Kelsey Flynn, received his Wings of Gold in a pinning ceremony at the Naval Air Station in Kingsville, Tex., Aug. 23.
Tom, 25, graduated from Plymouth High School in 2006, and ventured off to Annapolis, Md., to attend the United States Naval Academy.
PLYMOUTH â Visitors to Plymouth this weekend might notice the bright blue and silver sign at the Plymouth-Goshen Trail entrance to Centennial Park, commemorating the cityâs 125th anniversary in 1998.
The sign was donated by Titus, Inc., a Plymouth-based business, in 1998 and recently refurbished for free by the same company.
âI noticed that the sign had started chipping and peeling and it just looked terrible,â said Tom Read, president and CEO of Titus. âI contacted Mike (Hite, park superintendent) and said, âWe have to fix this before the Blueberry Festival.ââ
BOURBON â After Culver evened its Northern State Conference match with Triton at a game apiece Thursday, Lady Trojans volleyball coach Samantha Keel gave her players some sound advice: Put the ball where theyâre not.
The simple but effective strategy proved successful, and Triton rattled off wins in the third and fourth games to put the visitors away 25-14, 22-25, 25-19, 25-16 for an NSC win at The Trojan Trench.
