Don Granda Jr. in search of elusive 100


Harbaugh hammers ’em

My pre-season Cochranton Crusher pick is heating up.

Jeff Harbaugh — possibly the most overpowering bowler in the WCCBA these days — was locked in in the Pioneer League at Cochranton Lanes recently with games of 277, 226 and 228 for a 731.

In other CL action, Mike Martin threw his first career 600 series with a 611 in the Sunday Mixed League.

Brant Granda shines

Remaining in the 600 mode as of late, Brant Granda was the top young gun last week with a 631 series in the Major League at Lakeside Lanes.

His top game was 239.

Seth Beerbower also topped with a 605.

Young Guns: Part II

Plaza Lanes is the place to be today.

Beginning at 4 p.m., the area’s finest young guns — Beerbower, Granda, Dalton Zelasco, Nick Archacki and Ricky Kanline III, to name a few — will be in action in the Venango-Crawford High School Bowling League.

A sidenote on Archacki: While tuning up for the match with a practice session last Monday, the 12-year-old phenom tossed 265 and 253 games for a 735 series.

Game on, young guns!!

Remembering Turlij

The WCCBA bowling family lost a member this past week when Dennis Turlij passed away unexpectedly at the age of 61.

Turlij was a soft-spoken (very soft!) gentleman who allowed his bowling to do his talking. In recent years, the steady right-hander would calmly walk back after each frame and sit down — waiting for his next turn.

Turlij’s demeanor was top-notch. RIP, Dennis.

The latest proposed expansion plan for the Crawford County Courthouse potentially would eliminate the former Tarr Mansion on Diamond Park to make room for a county administrative building. Should the 1860 mansion be demolished?

Leave it alone because it’s historic.
Try to incorporate it into the proposed expansion.
It’s too far gone to save, but it’s memory may be preserved with an artifacts and photo display within the proposed courthouse complex.
