Clark County Is Whitaker Bank Park Ready

Back in April and May, when it never seemed to stop raining for more than 4 minutes, I selfishly stayed in a bad mood because I was damned to the indoors. I never took in consideration the plight of the many baseball teams in the area who were unable to get on the fields they so love. One of those teams was the George Rogers Clark Cardinals, my alma mater. I once roamed the Cardinal Field grounds as a confused teenaged boy and I completely understand the frustration that goes with rain-outs. A 22-11 record does not seem “state tourney” worthy, but when you consider GRC played a grand total of 5 home games this season, it is a little easier to swallow double-digit losses. The cards played 4 home games in the month of March and only one more home game for the remainder of the season. If you are wondering, yes, that is crazy.

After the Cards lost to the Bourbon County Colonels, 10-4, in the title game of the 40th District tournament, GRC has taken off! Larry Allison and his squad of redbirds headed to Campbell County for the 10th Region Tournament last week and came away with wins over mason County (8-1), Campbell County (6-5), and a huge revenge win over Bourbon County in the championship game (14-4) in 5 innings. The win sends GRC to the Kentucky National Insurance/KHSAA State Baseball Tournament. It is Clark County’s first appearance in the state tournament since the format changed from a three-game semi-state series followed by an 8 team tournament to it’s current 16 team format, similar to the one used in the Sweet 16 basketball tournaments.

On Monday, June 13, at 8:30 p.m. from the home of the Lexington Legends, Whitaker Bank Park, George Rogers Clark will begin their journey to the state championship. They will face Coach Todd Thompson and the 5th Region champs, the Central Hardin Bruins (32-4). I have a feeling Malik Warner, Anthony Withrow, Tyler Martinez, Scotty Turner, Justin Harris, Taylor Norton, Jake Robin, Christian Cooke, Nicholas Hyslop, Zach Roe, Mason Hisle, Skylar True, Hunter Staton, Matt Williams, Logan McQuerry, Taylor Howard, Zack Allen, Billy Hatmaker, Zach Pasley, Justin Maggard, Justin Carrus, Brent Stoneking, Dustin Bonner, Taylor Evans, Jesse Bates, Derek McKenzie, Tyler Cain, Ryan Frye, Darius Skinner, Steven Davis, Wes Lawwill, Aaron Parrish, Robert Hatler, Justin Howard, Zach Martinez, Hunter Osborne, and Trevor Back might have a little something for the filthy Bruins Monday night!

Good luck to Coach Allison and all of the guys on Monday! If you are not paying attention, Clark County is dominating 10th Region athletics right now! State Bound!
C! A! R! D! S!

A lawsuit filed recently to challenge new requirements for Arkansans seeking to initiate new laws or to let voters weigh in on passed legislation raises interesting questions about a process fundamental to government “by the people.” The American Civil Liberties Union and the Arkansas Public Law Center filed a lawsuit against the state over a law that imposes new expectations on paid signature gatherers. Secretary of State Mark Martin is the named defendant. The lawsuit was filed on behalf of Neil Sealy, director of Arkansas Community Organizations, and Paul Spencer, founder and co chairman of Regnant Populus, a group that seeks a constitutional amendment to restrict gifts to elected oft cials.

You can spend anywhere from $1.00 to $3.00 on a nice gift for your co worker this year . It doesn’t have to cost a fortune. Be creative. Use some of these ideas that I’ve listed. Don’t sweat over the small stuff this year. Have a Merry Christmas! said on 06/24/2014 1:42 AM

On site pool was a nice bonus on a rainy day. Reasonably priced, we had a warm welcome and found the staff went out of their way to help. We had a lovely, light clean room that over looked their garden, which would be delightful to sit in had the weather been warmer. We stayed.” in and ate and had a really good meal, which was superb value for money, well cooked, well presented and very hearty, which is just what you want if you have been out in the fresh air all day. Our room was spacious and nicely furnished, and though the decor in the hotel could do with up dating here and there, it was generally very comfortable and attractive.

Dans les riches terres agricoles à l’est de la baie de Monterey, la journée commence par le son des camions gros camion transportant de la laitue, des abricots et d’autres produits dans cette ville agricole tranquille d’environ 36.000 personnes. Au café de Jerry, les habitants échangent des ragots sur les œufs brouillés alors que l’équipage de la station du centre-ville d’incendie lave le moteur rouge et camion échelle. Bienvenue sur le Hollister original, Californie

But companies don’t get paid for finishing at the top of the annual culture awards: They meet or exceed their business objectives by gaining market share and becoming more profitable. The information was used to help the bank assess its current culture and how it worked with its business strategy. Tangible metrics were identified, among them attrition and acquisition numbers, data that can help provide important insights into deficient processes and/or strategies. This information can help suggest which cultural attributes have a direct correlation to how effectively a company is reaching its strategic goals.

Preval is deeply unpopular, especially in urban areas, after years of continued poverty and following his perceived inaction in response to the earthquake.
