Washington American Legion Baseball

The question of whether the Washington senior legion baseball season will continue into the zone tournament will be answered tonight. The West Jaguars will play St. Charles in the championship of the 9th district post-season tournament this evening at Westhoff Park and if West wins, Washington advances to the zone tournament at Lindenwood Univerisity in St. Charles. If St. Charles wins, they go. West and Daniel Boone have already qualified for zone by finishing one/two in the regular season standings. Washington was knocked out of the district tournament Saturday night following a 14-1 loss to West.

The Washington Juniors dominated the zone 1 tournament over the weekend capping it off with a 16-0 win over Chillicothe in the championship game Saturday afternoon. Washington will advance to the state tournament in Jackson this week.

The Washington Freshman won the state title Sunday morning with a 3-0 win over
St. Genevieve.

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.
