clarkkellogClark Kellogg will serve as the master of ceremonies for the 2008 Pathfinder Awards Banquet June 29 at Conseco Fieldhouse. The Pathfinder Awards are presented annually to individuals for their contributions and dedication to youth.

The Pathfinder Awards Banquet, the companion event to the Youthlinks Indiana Charity Golf Tournament, celebrates its 21st anniversary with the 2008 event.

Nearly 900 guests attended the 2007 banquet, with proceeds benefiting the Champions in Life Grant Program and other youth-serving initiatives. Indiana Sports Corp. and Indiana Black Expo co-present both events annually.

In addition to honoring the National and Indiana Pathfinder Award recipients, the Rev. Charles Williams Award will also be presented.

Kellogg was the No. 1 draft pick of the Indiana Pacers in 1982 and played five seasons before retiring with chronic knee problems. In addition to his work with CBS Sports and Indiana Pacers’ broadcasts, Kellogg has served as an analyst for ESPN’s regular season college basketball coverage. Kellogg has also worked for the Big East Network and Prime Sports.

Host golf courses for the 2008 Youthlinks Indiana Charity Golf Tournament, which will be held June 30, are The Brickyard Crossing, The Country Club of Indianapolis, Crooked Stick Golf Club, Meridian Hills Country Club and Woodland Country Club. Youthlinks Indiana will take place June 30.

Last year’s competition included 124 teams and 620 golfers at the five hosting golf courses. Over the years, more than $5.4 million in event proceeds has been distributed back into the community to support youth-based sports programs and initiatives through Champions in Life grants and other awards.

This year's award recipients will be announced in the near future. Track & field Olympic gold medalist Carl Lewis (National Pathfinder Award), Indiana basketball legend George McGinnis (Indiana Pathfinder Award), and IndySpeed and Special Olympics coach Cindi Hart (Rev. Williams Award) were honored in 2007.

  • Clark is the right guy for this. For people who haven't seen him speak, he is well worth the time. And he's been a good role model and advocate for youth.

  1. In reality, Lilly is maintaining profit by cutting costs such as Indiana/US citizen IT workers by a significant amount with their Tata Indian consulting connection, increasing Indian H1B's at Lillys Indiana locations significantly and offshoring to India high paying Indiana jobs to cut costs and increase profit at the expense of U.S. workers.

  2. I think perhaps there is legal precedence here in that the laws were intended for family farms, not pig processing plants on a huge scale. There has to be a way to squash this judges judgment and overrule her dumb judgement. Perhaps she should be required to live in one of those neighbors houses for a month next to the farm to see how she likes it. She is there to protect the people, not the corporations.

  3. http://www.omafra.gov.on.ca/english/engineer/facts/03-111.htm Corporate farms are not farms, they are indeed factories on a huge scale. The amount of waste and unhealthy smells are environmentally unsafe. If they want to do this, they should be forced to buy a boundary around their farm at a premium price to the homeowners and landowners that have to eat, sleep, and live in a cesspool of pig smells. Imagine living in a house that smells like a restroom all the time. Does the state really believe they should take the side of these corporate farms and not protect Indiana citizens. Perhaps justifiable they should force all the management of the farms to live on the farm itself and not live probably far away from there. Would be interesting to investigate the housing locations of those working at and managing the corporate farms.

  4. downtown in the same area as O'malia's. 350 E New York. Not sure that another one could survive. I agree a Target is needed d'town. Downtown Philly even had a 3 story Kmart for its downtown residents.

  5. Indy-area residents... most of you have no idea how AMAZING Aurelio's is. South of Chicago was a cool pizza place... but it pales in comparison to the heavenly thin crust Aurelio's pizza. Their deep dish is pretty good too. My waistline is expanding just thinking about this!
