Washington Post 218 clinched the 9th District regular season title with a 16-6 win over Warrenton Wednesday night and took a step closer to finishing the league schedule undefeated with a 4-2 win over St. Charles. Jared Walde was the winning pitcher in the win over St. Charles going seven and two thirds innings before giving way to Trent Leimkuehler who recorded the final four outs to get the save.

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?
