Plunge into Pickleball
By Maggie Fipps
I could regurgitate facts about the year-over-year growth of the sport, or the thousands of courts installed across the country, including at Cedarville. But all you need to know is Tom Brady, Selena Gomez and even the Golden Bachelor himself, Gerry Turner, all play the game.
The sport blossomed in retirement communities in Arizona, but became the trendy sport for 20-somethings who left their high school tennis rackets behind but still want to wear that cute tennis ...

By Janie Walenda
It’s odd when the most successful film of the year is the most controversial. However, “Barbie” has earned close to 1.5 billion dollars, sparkling in glittery pink and sparking waves of outrage.
