  • Columnist Brent Wheat is preparing to take on a new journey in the magazine world. 

    Starting Friday, Wheat will be the new editor-in-chief of Guns Magazine.

    Wheat said the whole experience of getting the job was “quite shocking.”

    He said he was working at home when the phone rang, and it was Roy Huntington, who is the publisher of Guns Magazine. Huntington presented him with this job and wondered if he would be interested.

    “It’s like winning the lottery except with the lottery you have to go out and buy a ticket,” Wheat said. “Here, I just got a phone call, and it pretty much changed my life.”

  • Pacers youth camp stops in Westfield
    Absolute chaos.

    Those are two words to describe the atmosphere from an outsider's perspective of the Junior Pacers Hoop Tour Wednesday at the Pacers Athletic Center in Westfield. 

    Step a little closer, however, and you can see this is organized chaos. You can also see familiar faces, such as former Indiana Pacer Fred Jones, still doing what drives them – sharing their love for the game with younger generations. 

    “The motivation for me (teaching kids basketball) is this is what I am supposed to do,” Jones said. “I’ve been blessed to play the game of basketball at a high level and get to a point where people tend to want to listen to what I got to say. With that, my obligation is to pass it forward.”
