(updated) ELKHORN -- A malfunctioning recording of the national anthem didn’t stop the girls basketball game from tipping off after a visiting player stepped off the court to sing it live.
Players from Elkhorn Area High School and visiting Clinton Community High School were waiting for the game to begin Nov. 17, 2015 when the announcer at the scorer’s table had difficulty getting a recording of the national anthem to play over the sound system.

WALWORTH COUNTY SUNDAY -- Not many people in Walworth County have been as involved on the alley and behind the scenes in support of bowling as Ted Tinberg.
The Huntley, Illinois, native moved to the Delavan area 42 years ago and has worked at Pentair for nearly 39 of them. And bowling has been a huge part of his life outside of the job.
Tinberg, 60, has participated in bowling leagues as a competitor during his entire time in Delavan. He became involved in the administrative side nearly a quarter century ago.
WALWORTH COUNTY SUNDAY -- Larry Marzahl’s passion for bowling grew out of fear, at least the kind of not wanting to do chores.
“I worked at the bank from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., you know, banker’s hours, and I knew if I went home that Dad would want me to help,” Marzahl said with a chuckle. “I needed to find something else to do, and Harold Mishler owned the bowling alley across from the pharmacy (in Elkhorn), so I asked him if he would teach me how to bowl, and he said he would if I bought a ball.
“So, I did -- a rubber one named Black Beauty -- and every day after work I went over and he gave me lessons for about an hour, playing 10 to 20 games,” Marzahl added while sipping coffee at Delavan Lanes, one of his homes away from home.
JANESVILLE MESSENGER -- The Janesville Sports Hall of Fame has a new home.
Make it two new homes.
Plaques honoring the Hall of Fame’s 141 inductees have been relocated from the Riverfront Centre in downtown Janesville to the city’s two high schools.
The commons area outside the main gymnasium at Parker High School now displays the plaques of 41 inductees with direct ties. Plaques of 40 inductees with direct ties to Craig High, 41 with ties to the former Janesville Senior High and 19 unattached (with no ties to either school) are displayed at Craig inside the building’s new primary entrance to the main gym.
