Ray Shearer (third from left), the chairman of the USS Indiana and USS Indianapolis commissioning committees, presents a picture of the latter vessel that was signed by the crew to Jean Anne Bailey (second from left), the owner of Nick’s Kitchen, during a visit to the Huntington diner on Monday, Feb. 17. Shearer thanked Bailey for sending tenderloins to the crews of both vessels. The idea to do so was hatched by the Huntington County Commissioners.

Tenderloins from Huntington will once again be served aboard a vessel in the United States Navy that has Indiana ties.

At the end of February, 140 tenderloins from Nick’s Kitchen will be shipped to the USS Indianapolis (LCS-17), a Freedom class littoral combat ship based in Mayport, FL.

HU diamond men fall twice

The Huntington University baseball team dropped a doubleheader to host IU Southeast on Saturday, Feb. 22, as it fell, 9-7 and 1-0.

Four hits and three runs batted in from Daniel Lichty wasn’t enough for the HU pitching staff in the first game scorefest.

The hosts took a 2-0 lead in the second inning, but HU came back with three runs in the third and two more in the fourth for a 5-2 lead. The No. 22 Grenadiers knotted the game with a three-spot in the fifth, but HU pushed across two more runs in the seventh before IU tallied the game’s final four runs in the seventh inning.
