Senior Legion Baseball

Post 218 didn't get a chance to play for the championship of the Post 218 Wood Bat Tournament Sunday evening. Washington had defeated Manchester 11-1 in six innings earlier in the day and Jefferson City Post 5 had finished off an 8-6 come from behind win over Jackson, but rain and lightening moved in shortly after the second semifinal dashing any hopes of a title game match up between two of the best senior legion teams in the state. Washington currently stands at 17-3 while Post 5 is undefeated at 20-0.

Washington is back in action Tuesday night with a 9th District game at Warrenton. Game time is 6:00 at Warrenton High School. It will be broadcast live on KLPW-AM 1220.

I am a woman. I would be more than happy to have more money in my paycheck. Too bad the Paycheck Fairness Act won't do that for me. Who wants "equality" if it comes because everyone makes less money?

Nonetheless, the Paycheck Fairness Act is the latest weapon in the War On Women, part II--2014 election style.
