Downtown Clean Up Day

It’s clean up day in downtown Washington this weekend. Danielle Grotewiel with Downtown Washington Inc says it would be nice for the city to look its best for the America In Bloom judges who will be in town July 11th and 12th. If you are interested in helping out, the clean-up will begin at 8:00am on Saturday at the downtown post office and will run until noon. Lunch will be provided by the Lions Club and t-shirts will be given out to the first people to show up. The focus this year will be clearing the downtown area of any weeds, so if you have a weed eater, it will be put to good use. If you can’t make it Saturday but still want to help out, contact Downtown Washington Inc at 636-239-1743

Earlier this season in a game against St. Peters, Trey pitched a complete game with 11 strike outs and no walks in an 8-1 win. He also went the distance in a tough luck 6-1 loss to Washington. He only gave up four hits with 13 strike outs and one walk. Time and again, Trey has proven his ability to go deep into games.

The shootings at Emmanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina, however, stands out for two main reasons.

It involved race, and it was done it a church.
