St. Charles County Looking to Open Augusta Bottom Road

A compromise could be struck today that would determine the outcome of Augusta Bottom Road. The popular Connector between Washington and St. Charles County has been closed for the past few months due to the town of Augusta no longer taking responsibility for its maintenance. After a lawsuit dating back to 2010 when a 16 year old girl veered off and died on the road, the town of Augusta could no longer get, or afford, liability insurance and decided to close the popular shortcut to St. Charles county. Washington City Administrator Jim Briggs says other than some very light road maintenance in the past, the city of Washington has no plans to take responsibility of Augusta Bottom Road or get involved in the dispute over who should. The St. Charles County Council will vote on a bill Tuesday in hopes of coming to a resolution. The proposed bill says St. Charles County will continue to maintain some roads that Warren County residents rely on. And in return, Warren County will maintain and hopefully reopen Augusta Bottom Road.

There are few things more inspiring in life than watching an octogenarain with two hip replacements swimming a 200 yard race, or guys in their late 70's playing some pretty vigorous 3 on 3 basketball. A generation of baby boomers is learning that, while they can't reverse age, they certainly can embrace life!

A.J. Pierzynski appears to have found a new home. The catcher is expected to join the St. Louis Cardinals according to the "Post-Dispatch." Pierzynski was released by the Boston Red Sox a few weeks ago. The Cards are expected to be without Yadier Molina for another six-to-ten weeks after thumb surgery. The 37-year-old Pierzynski hit .254 with four homers in 72 games with Boston prior to his departure.
