Olympic games are times of International celebration. In 1996, Jasper County Indiana got to share a little bit of that spirit as the torch relay passed through DeMotte, Rensselaer and Remington, on its way to the opening of the Atlanta games that July 19.
In honor of the upcoming baseball season, the Republican will showcase the 1976 Rensselaer Central High School Bomber baseball team. Members of that team included (L to R) coach Jackie Goodrich, Randy Kiger, John Claussen, Mark Hannon, Bret Mattocks, Bob Reichert, Lane Mattocks, Alan Brunton, Ed Wood, Terry Phegley, Terry Kaufman and coach J. Scott Williams. If anyone knows what the Bombers finished that year and who some of the better players were, contact the Republican via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or drop us a note at our office at 117 N.
