Back When: The Goshen News, Nov. 24, 1995


The word around the National Football League used to be that if you stop Barry Sanders, you stop the Detroit Lions. That may not be true any more.

Minnesota held Sanders to just one yard in the first half Thursday. By then, however, Scott Mitchell had thrown three touchdown passes. Mitchell finished with record numbers and the Lions held on for a 44-38 victory over the Vikings.

And guess what? Sanders got his numbers anyway. He finished with 138 yards on 24 carries, including a 50-yard touchdown scamper that gave the Lions a 10-point lead with 5:18 left in the game.

“Everyone, when they talk about the Lions, it’s ‘Stop Barry Sanders,’” tackle Lomas Brown said. “The thing is now we’re making big plays we didn’t make earlier, and that’s why we’re winning some football games.”


3 Goshen bowlers roll perfect games

Three Goshen league bowlers, Bob Weiland, Dale Klase and Dave Mast, rolled perfect 300 games in a four-day stretch at Maple City Bowl over the past week.

Weiland first was perfect in a Thursday, Nov. 16 league. Klase followed on Friday and Mast on Monday. It is believed to be a record for 300s in Goshen sanctioned league bowling over a four-day period. Weiland now has seven perfect games, Klase two and Mast one.

Original Hawaiians are Polynesians who came to Hawaii from Tahiti, Samoa, Easter Island and other Pacific islands between 500 and 1300 A.D. These Hawaiians were polytheists who worshiped and built shrines to various nature deities. But on the big island of Hawaii they came to revere especially Pele, the fierce and violent goddess of volcanoes.
