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.

Three Goshen elementary schools — Chandler, Chamberlain and West Goshen — are providing free meals to all students during the school year as part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Community Eligibility Provision of the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. Nearly 80 percent of students at Chandler, 89 percent of students at Chamberlain and 78 percent of students at West Goshen already qualify for free or reduced-price lunches based on their family income. How do you feel about the new lunch program?

I think it’s a good idea to feed all the students free of charge
I think those who can afford it should pay for their school meals
