IndyStar Indiana All-Star games director Charlie Hall had a pretty good idea of how the All-Star roster would shake out before Sundays Top 60 Senior Workout at Marian University.

If Hall had any doubt about Eugene German, a 6-foot guard from Gary 21st Century, he was convinced otherwise after the workout.

I dont want to go overboard because the Top 60 isnt necessarily a tryout for the team, Hall said. But German probably had the best performance Ive ever seen at a Top 60. He validated his spot on the team.

German, a Northern Illinois recruit, is one of 13 players on the Indiana All-Star roster announced today. The Indiana All-Stars will play the Kentucky All-Stars on June 11 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse and June 12 at Bellarmine University in Louisville, Ky. There will be two exhibition games against the Junior All-Stars on June 7 and 9 at sites still to be announced.

Gary students aim to stem violence

on Wednesday, 24 February 2016

Johntrelle Bowles saw the aftermath of shooting violence in Gary first-hand when he served as a volunteer in the emergency room at the Methodist Hospitals Northlake.

"I'm originally from Harvey, Ill., so I know about violence," he said while watching Tuesday's rally against violence at 21st Century Charter School where he's student body president.

Bowles and fellow student, Da'Ione Fields, along with Dr. Michael McGee, organized a new youth movement called Students Against Violence Everywhere, or SAVE, to promote peace and healthy choices in Northwest Indiana. Tuesday's event at 21st Century Charter was the first rally that organizers hope will spread to other Gary schools.

McGee, who founded Project Outreach and Prevention, said he started it after treating young wounded men in the emergency room, where he's the emergency department medical director.

The program also satisfies trauma designation criteria for the hospital.

"The mission of the organization is to prevent and alleviate youth violence and to encourage young people in career paths," he said.
