     I signed up for the Mayor’s Marathon in Anchorage, Alaska yesterday. No turning back now. I’ve paid my $70 for my race t-shirt that I’ll receive when I cross the finish line (race shirts are expensive because they come with lots of smiles when you wear them weeks after the race and remember what you did, and where you went to get them).

  • Sterrett no-hits South in district

    CRESTWOOD – Jason Sterrett wasn’t quite perfect, but he was pretty darn close.

    Sterrett, a senior righthander for the North Oldham Mustangs threw a no-hitter as NOHS routed South Oldham 11-0 in the opening round of the district tournament Monday.

    Sterrett allowed just one baserunner, in the fourth inning when he hit his close friend Daniel Pulliam in the helmet with an errant curveball.

    “That’s OK, it was Daniel,” Sterrett joked. “I figured I could give him one. If I was going to hit someone it might as well been him.”
