ROLLS A SEVEN: Mayor Bill Brown rolled a seven Saturday night, but he didn't pick up the lettuce. His Honor was officially opening the eighth annual men's city bowling tournament at the 20th Century Recreation. A capable kegler himself, the mayor appeared slightly nervous as he approached the foul line and sent the ball spinning down the alley to upset seven of the 10 pins. Twenty-four teams competed on the opening night of the competition.
