Strike 13? Flint-area bowler goes after record

A Flint-area bowler is taking aim at the Guinness World Records mark for most strikes in a minute.
Jason Hicks of Clio last month unofficially tied the record, getting 12 at the Clio Bowling Acrade. The 35-year-old is planning to give it another try May 2 at the bowling alley that's owned by his family.
Hicks helps manage the alley and coaches a middle school bowling team. He got 12 strikes on 15 attempts March 7 - and a 13th came one second too late.
The attempts are for a good cause. Hicks used his last one to raise more than $1,300 for a local boy with a rare genetic disease. This time he's planning to split funds between several charities.
