LOCAL sports & politics; NATL headlines

Fellow Lawrence Central HS alum Kyle Guy has captured the hearts of thousands of basketball fans, a number that could swell to millions if he reaches the NBA (like dozens of other Indy hoopers). He almost has that many haters, too. Whether he's shushing the crowd or mocking their jeers - the kid's got swag; not to mention, athletic genes. Kyle's dad, Joe, was a standout WR at LC back in 1994. Lee Larkins, one of Kyle's first coaches, predicted he'd win Mr Basketball when Kyle was in 6th grade. JR Shelt inserted him into the starting lineup freshman year and didn't look back. Last season, he led the Bears to their best record since '96. Flashback to my glory days: LC went to semi-state in '98. Ultimately, he chose Virginia over IU because he 'connected' with Tony Bennett better than Tom Crean. That needs to be fixed.

Indiana Hoosiers picked up a JUCO transfer and just in time for Spring Creaning. Priller? Troy? I'm less surprised he chose to test the NBA than Thomas Bryant deciding to stay. Kudos, young man.

Indiana Pacers tied the playoff series at 2-2 and now head to Toronto for a best of three series. #PG13daTroof

Indianapolis Colts Draft this weekend has a lot of great OTs but Colts desperately need a stud Guard/Center combo, like Martin (ND) or Kelly (Bama). And Rush-DE/LB, as always. Who's the gem and will Grigson land him?

Indianapolis 500 is just around the corner and yours truly just did a commercial shoot today, with one of the Indycar drivers, by the last name Andretti... *ahem* Marco! Booyah, my life is dope.

This has been the weirdest Presidential campaign and now the spotlight is on Indiana. Shillary makes her first appearance in Indiana tomorrow while Donald Drumpf defies all logic and continues to lead the field of GOP candidates, now whittled down to 2. Ted Cruz picked up an endorsement from John Kasich just ahead of the Indiana primary. Then Donald counters with a surprise Bob Knight announcement. Boom Baby? #Bern1

*Bonus: Tommy Brady will now have to sit 4 games of 2016, and the Patriots still lose their 1st Rd Pick (again).

Fishers Medals Again

In the bustling Nickel Plate District of Fishers, Indiana, Tracy Gritters can recall a time when things looked very different. “It was a two-lane road 17 years ago,” she said of the property around her boutique store, Gallery 116 , where she has sold locally made goods since 2002. “We were worried about Target coming to town.” The retail giant eventually did — it's located about an 11-minute walk from her store — but the city's expansion hasn’t been the scenario she feared. Fishers, which was named MONEY's Best Place to Live in 2017 , officially upgraded from a town to a city and swore in its first mayor on January 1, 2015. Mayor Scott Faddness is still in office, and in the years since his inauguration, the city itself has been transformed. The newly developed downtown area became the Nickel Plate District , now home to an outdoor amphitheatre, plenty of retail stores and restaurants, a brewery, luxury apartments, and a high-speed internet coworking sp

64-team bracket BLANK

Go ahead and knock yourself out with this blank bracket, but I ( and Joe Lunardi ) find it more enjoyable setting the field before Sunday...

Indy vs. Boston battle for America's best suburbs

Joining Carmel as one of the best places to live in America (and the world), neighbors Zionsville and Westfield are now also ranked in the top 10 in the newest ‘Best Small Cities’ study, according to WalletHub: Boston & Indy suburbs dominated the top of the list, with Lancaster (PA) taking the top spot.  Not only is Indianapolis one of the fastest growing cities in America, it's the only city on the list not located in the South or West:
