Senior Legion Baseball

Ryan Franklin pitched a complete game with seven strike outs and two walks leading the West Jaguars to a 1-0 win over Washington Post 218 in a pitchers dual at Ronsick Field Friday night. West scored the winning run in the eighth when Danny Biggs led off with a walk, was sacrificed to second, stole third, and came home on a sacrifice fly off the bat of Kyle Case. Washington starter Spencer Juergens pitched seven scoreless innings before being lifted for Nick Thiel who pitched a third of an inning giving up two walks. Thiel suffered the loss. Justin Shuler pitched the final inning and two thirds with three strike outs. Post 218 threatened early putting runners on base in each of the first three innings and had two runners on in the ninth but failed to push anyone across. Ross Seitter, Austin Finder and Noah Borgerding had two hits apiece. Washington drops to 5-2 overall and 3-2 in 9th District action while West improves to 5-1 and 1-1.

OFF THE CUFF with Diane Jones

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.
