Chances are good that last spring you tossed your bowling equipment into the closet and never moved it until you headed for the league meeting this season.It's not too late to check out everything and replace what's missing or damaged.The bag -- maybe a little soap and water will do for now but if the handle or the straps are starting to show signs of extreme wear it's time to think about replacing it.Shoes -- a bowling shoe may be more important than the ball. Because no matter how much or how little you bowl, no matter how expert you are, if you can't get proper traction or a proper slide you are in big trouble.

The former pro shop manager at Aberdeen Proving Ground's Ruggles Golf Course faces a federal theft charge, with authorities accusing him of embezzling about $200,000 from the government-owned 18-hole course.

In the three months the tennis, golf, and exercise apparel shop in the Clarksville Crossing shopping center has been open, Hildebrand has purchased almost an entire wardrobe, and gifts for friends, from the store owned by Elaine Smart. "We belong to Cattail Creek [Country Club] and they have a wonderful pro shop, but it's a guy's pro shop," Hildebrand said.
