Hot Screamers softball team finishes off 2014 with a bang

INLET -- Matt's Drafthouse Hot Screamers softball team finished off the 2014 season with a bang.
They came out of the gate on fire in the championship game against The Inn On Gore, putting up 10 runs in the top of the first. Every batter hit the ball hard, and the inning was only ended because of the 10-run rule.
Kyle Houser and DeDe Ste-Marie both singled and then scored when Beth Williamson crushed a three homer. Heather Levi drew a walk, Meg Kraeger singled, Ashley Fowler smacked a double fol ...

The Information Age
Radios can communicate digitally
By Peter Newell

Ten or more years before most people had even a dial-up Internet connection, amateur radio operators were exchanging text messages (email) and files, and logging in to Packet Radio bulletin board systems totally independent of the fledgling Internet. Even back in the 1960s, they were sending text and pictures using RTTY and SSTV.
As personal computers became more powerful, the sophistication of digital data communication programs increased. Nowadays, every computer has a sound card and enough co ...

ABOUT THE WEEK OF NOV. 26, 1965, two Indians with an English accent deserve much of the credit for the first Thanksgiving in America. They taught the Plymouth colonists how to make a home in the New World and helped them establish a peace that lasted for more than 50 years.
The first to approach the colonists, reported World Book Encyclopedia, was Samoset, a chief of the Pemaquid Indians. He walked into the colony one day in March of 1621, and unsettled the settlers by addressing them in English ...

Deer hunters are bucking the odds
By Dick Nelson
