  1. Neddenriep’s article entices me to want to see the film Medora. Also for what it is worth I know John Werner, mentioned in the very beginning of the article. Be back in LaPorte county in about 5 hours to spend the Thanksgiving holiday with my Mom. Enjoy T-Day!

  2. I just saw the trailer of Medora and need to see that movie as well. With hard work, the world is as big as you want it to be & I hope the kids in that documentary learn that.

  3. Just finished watching it on itunes ($4.99). It’s awesome – not in a sports sense but having grown up in a small town in Indiana it brought back a lot of memories and struggles those towns are facing. The pride they have in their tiny school and clearly terrible basketball team puts our nitpicking about IU basketball in perspective.

    Thanks for linking that article, Jeremy, and thanks for bringing it to my attention, HC.
