After 25 years of successful, but unsatisfying, work in the restaurant business, I returned to school at IUPUI and completed my BA in sports journalism.
Sports, specifically baseball, has always been a passion of mine, and I decided I would like to pursue a career in something that I love. I have covered professional, college, and high school sports as well as political and human interest stories during my 2 years with the Pendleton Times-Post. I have also been published by Indianapolis Monthly, Greenfield Daily Reporter, The Campus Citizen, and Indiana Sports Journalism Center.

Team of one: Arabian goes it alone in gymnastics

PENDLETON - Her competitions take place without a raucous student section or the accompaniment of a pep band and cheerleaders. Her only rooting section is usually her parents, and she doesn't have any teammates. Cassie Zehr is the team. And she's OK with that.
