Season Ends for the ECC Falcons

The Falcons ended with the best season record in school history at 32-22, but fell short in the NJCAA National Tournament. Facing a tough challenge as the #15 seed, the Falcons took an early 3-1 lead against #2 Jones County with three doubles in a row. ECC had a strong couple of innings pitched by Chelsea Bax and ECC was looking to finish the game with good defense. Jones County made a comeback to lead 5-3 and then the Falcons tried to claw back into the game with a solo home run by Kaitlin Evans to make the game 7-4. The final score was 9-5 in favor of Jones County Community College.

The Falcons couldn’t come up with offense in the second game and lost 5-0 to Lincoln Land Community College in the elimination game of the tournament. Sarah Westhoff started pitching for the Falcons.

It came as a shock to a lot of people to find out that the contract for the Union license office, which has been operated by the Union Chamber of Commerce since the 1970's, was being turned over to a for-profit company based out of Jefferson City.

What happened? It's a classic case of two all-too-common phenomena in the world of government--unintended consequences and the revolving door.
