Jim Bailey: Old sportswriters never die, they go into syndication

(Continued)

It was natural that writers from the Anderson, Muncie, Marion, New Castle and Kokomo papers would become well acquainted. Bob Barnet was the longtime Muncie Star sports editor, with Ron Lemasters succeeding him. A guy named Rick Teverbaugh got his start there. From the Muncie Evening Press were sports editor Jerry Fennell, Roy Bigger and Warren Collier. At the Marion Chronicle-Tribune was Jack Lake, and later Chuck Landis. Bob Ford was the Kokomo Tribune’s longtime sports editor, along with Mark Morrow and Dave Kitchell. At New Castle was Ken Ford.

Then there were the big-city papers. Bob Collins headed the Indianapolis Star staff, along with guys such as Dave Overpeck and Bill Benner. At the News were Wayne Fuson, Dick Mittman, Jimmie Angelopoulos and Corky Lamm (who got his start with The Herald). Later Chappell moved to the Star as one of the lead Colts reporters.

Time passes and careers come to an end. But some people, such as Lopresti and yours truly, find ways to continue exercising their creativity at their own pace.

Jim Bailey’s reflections on Anderson’s past appear on Sunday. His regular column appears on Wednesday. He can be reached by e-mail at jameshenrybailey@earthlink.net.
