Veterans centers help in transition from military to college
 Angela Hall spent more than six years in the Marine Corps before enrolling at Wright State University, and the change of scenery was unsettling. “I wanted to be normal, but the first couple weeks I started to get overwhelmed because as much as you want to try to be normal, you’re not a traditional student,” said Hall, 27...

Second Thoughts: Dalton has shot to prove he’s a star against Steelers
 The girls were discussing football show music during College GameDay. Grace prefers the old version of “Comin’ to Your City.” Jill doesn’t mind the rap version, adding, “It’s better than that Sunday night girl with her butt hanging out.” Apparently she doesn’t approve of Carrie Underwood&rsquo...

Parking at a premium at Wright State
 The start of a new school year at Wright State generally includes parking issues, but the university says the problem has been exacerbated by more students driving their cars to school.

Second Thoughts: College football overload saves sports fans

7:19 PM Saturday, Aug. 27, 2016

High school football is back, which means lightning delays, great concessions and marching bands. I cannot recall the last season in which games were not delayed or pushed back a day due to inclement weather. Maybe next year it’ll be 70 and calm on opening night. Sure. And maybe officials will stop throwing phantom pass interference...
Second Thoughts: Murphy goes from seventh at state to Olympic podium

3:17 PM Saturday, Aug. 20, 2016

I-Team reporter Josh Sweigart dropped in on the awesome Darke County Fair on Friday. I jokingly told him to bring back an elephant ear. A couple hours later he delivered a glob of greasy deliciousness to my desk. Just what our newsroom needed: more sugar! Congrats to Tri-Village graduate Clayton Murphy on his bronze medal in the 800-meter...
Second Thoughts: Lilly King lets it rip in and out of the pool
 The kids are going back to school this week, which means no more brushing their teeth at midnight while I’m trying to sleep. Throw in the start of football, and this is a great time of year. Lilly King is one of my all-time favorite athletes. The teenage swimmer from Indiana won the gold medal in the 100-meter breaststroke in Rio, setting...

Second Thoughts: Not easy to find hosts (patsies) for future Olympics

7:28 PM Saturday, Aug. 06, 2016

I’m getting mentally prepared for Germanfest at Carillon Park. The awesome festival begins Friday. Great food, cold beer, cool German hats. It’s also fun to expand your vocabulary and use words such as “schnitzel” and “biergarten.” Cheers! The bar is at an all-time low for the Summer Olympics, which began...

Second Thoughts: For Griffey, a deserving day in the public eye
 I’m thinking about taking the family to Louisville for a quick vacation before the homework excuses start flying. Never been there, but I hear good things. If you have any travel tips, please drop me a line. With a baseball and softball player in tow, we already have the Louisvlle Slugger Museum on the itinerary. Ken Griffey Jr. takes...

Second Thoughts: Pitch counts for high school kids long overdue

5:43 PM Saturday, Jul. 16, 2016

Three things you’ll never catch me doing: drinking a wine cooler, cheering for the Texas Longhorns, or joining in on this strange Pokemon craze. We are doomed when our stupid smartphones are being credited for getting people off the couch to exercise. Nothing wrong with a good walk, but you’re not going to drop 30 pounds looking...
Second Thoughts: How about Duvall vs. Frazier in HR Derby?
 So Kevin Durant is joining the Warriors, taking the “if you can’t beat them, join them” approach in favor of rolling up his sleeves. Good thing the Cavaliers rallied to win the NBA title this year, because they might be one and done. In other news, Wayne and Centerville will combine their football teams, just to make sure...

Second Thoughts: Baseball at Fort Bragg is worth a salute

4:00 AM Saturday, Jul. 02, 2016

Happy 240th, America. It’s Fourth of July weekend — time for baseball, hot dogs, apple pie and Chevrolet. And, unfortunately, bottle rockets at midnight (c’mon kids, give it a break). A Braves-Marlins matchup normally would cause the masses to catch up on their quilting or basement cleaning, but tonight’s matchup on...
New UD prez feels right at home
 Eric Spina worked his way through his first day as president at the University of Dayton with tours, meetings and plenty of handshakes and small talk. At one point, he found himself in a wind tunnel at UD’s School of Engineering. “Ah, I’m home,” he said. Spina has a doctorate in mechanical and aerospace engineering...
