Easy street

The people of Beech Grove, Indiana, are preparing to rename the street in front of the town’s high school after native and Storm rookie Katie Gearlds on Wednesday. The official name will be “Katie Gearlds Way,” to match the “Welcome to Beech Grove, home of Katie Gearlds” sign as you enter the town.
Gearlds was humorous about the honor, saying she still has a lot of friends at home who campaigned for her. They even want her to run for mayor after her playing career is over. “I’m not into politics,” Gearlds said after practice today. She did attend high school with the current Mayor Joe Wright’s son. But Gearlds isn’t in the loop anyway — she just discovered what her hometown was planning last weekend.
Gearlds has been scooping up the tickets for her two-game stint back to the Midwest. She’s set up for 18 in Chicago and is stopping at 60 for Indiana.
“Everyone else is one their own,” she said.
