The Macon Tigers headed out to Monroe City to battle Highland in the first round of the Class 3 District 7 tournament. The Tigers entered the game with a 19-4 record and looked to move on in the District and notch their twenty win of the season. The Tigers came out clawing the scored two in the first, three in the second, four in the third and two in the forth. They left no doubt as to which team would be moving on to the next round. Highland would add a lone run in the fifth but the Tigers would move on with a dominating 11-1 win. Jordan Bealmer was 2-4 with 2 singles and 3 RBI. Christian Thrasher 2-3 with a single, double, and 2 RBI. Cole Birdsong went 2-3 with a pair of singles and Craig Smith 2-3 with a double, single and 2 RBI. Josh Turner 1-3 with a 2 RBI single and a RBI Sac Fly. Brendan Watts, Collin Patrick, Trae Adams and Kaleb Welch all recorded 1hit a piece. “We played well in all

phases of the game today. Christian set the tone on the mound throwing strikes and coming after hitters. Our offense did a great job of getting a couple runs in the first inning, executing, and giving us some breathing room. It is going to take us playing like this if we want to continue playing in the postseason. Great effort all around today. ” Coach Robuck The Tigers looked to move on to the Championship game but had to get past Bowling Green in the second round of the tournament. Things got off on the right foot as the Tigers took an early one run lead. Bowling Green would answer scoring three runs in the first inning and leading 1-3. Fate would not be on the Tigers side this time with the Tigers getting robbed on some great defense by their opponents. Bowling Green was able to get all the bounces and score two in the 5th and one more in the 6th. The Tigers were unable to rally like

The Class One District Twelve tournament was hosted by La Plata at the Sports complex this past weekend. The Bulldogs looked to take advantage of the home field and the support of their raved fans. They opened play Friday against the Brashear Tigers. The Bulldogs put up two runs in the first on a double by Jace Brown and RBI triple from Tanner Riggins and a single from Dylan Slaughter. The Dogs were not called off in the second or third inning scoring six then seven runs to push their lead to 15-0. La Plata would add to more to end the game early in the forth inning and move on to the second round. Matt Safley went 1-2 with a RBI and run scored. Hunter Howe was 2-3 with a RBI and 2 runs scored. Baylon Belt went 2-2 at the plate while scoring 2. Ty Davison was 1-2 with a run. Try Jackson and Derick Groseclose scored a run each. Slaughter finished 1-2 with a RBI and 2 runs. Brown was 2-3 with 3 runs and an RBI and Riggins was 2-3 with 3 runs and 2 RBI. The star of the game was Alex Smith he pitched a 5 inning no hitter and went 2-3 at the plate with a run and 3 RBI. The Bulldogs faced the Marion County Mustangs in the second round Monday Night. The Bulldogs would strike again early, Safley walked to lead off and was plated on a double by Riggins. Riggins would then score on a single by Belt to make the score 2-0. The Dogs would keep things rolling in the second inning. Preston Payne double to start things rolling. Howe singled and Safley shot one to right scoring Payne. Riggins reached base on a error that scored

both Howe and Safley. La Plata led 5-0 after only two innings. The Mustangs would rally to score one in the 3rd and cut the lead to 5-1. The Bulldogs would answer with 3 runs in the forth. Howe and Safley singled to reach base. Brown singled to send Howe home. Safley crossed home after a wild pitched. Belt and Smith walked and Brown scored on another wild pitch. The Mustangs answered with three runs in the next inning making the score 8-4. The would continue to chip away at the La Plata lead scoring 2 in the 5th and reducing the lead to 8-6. La Plata would answer in the next inning, Belt and Slaughter walked. Belt scored on a single from Smith and Slaughter scored on a error to make the Bulldog lead 10-6. The Bulldogs would hold on to move on to the Championship game. It all came down to the District finals against their longtime rivals and number one ranked Atlanta Hornets. Things looked bleak for the Bulldogs in the first inning, the Hornets had been dominating all year on the mound and scored four runs to lead 0-4. The Bulldogs would come roaring back in the top of the third. Howe reached with an infield single, Safley roped a line drive into right and then Brown doubled to score Howe. Riggins followed with a single scoring Brown. Belt kept the merry-go-round going with a RBI single. Smith tied the game on a single to center scoring Belt. Davison and Payne singled and just like that the Dogs led 5-4. Atlanta would answer with 3 runs in the bottom of the forth to take the lead right back. Then yet again the Bulldogs would answer in the next inning.

they had all season and fell in the game 1-6. Craig Smith was 2-3 with a single and double. Josh Turner and Collin Patrick also recorded singles. “You have to give credit to Bowling Green for playing a sound baseball game. We didn’t play our best tonight and when you do that against good teams you usually get beat. Unfortunately, we just didn’t have it tonight. We can’t lose sight of what a great season our guys just had. 20 wins and a second place finish in the CCC conference is a great accomplishment. We have several pieces coming back for next year, and we will try to get better this summer and come back strong again next spring. We are all proud of our guys this spring.” Coach Robuck

The Brashear Tigers opened up district play in La Plata against the host Bulldogs. The Tigers hoped to play the spoiler and put on Cinderella’s slipper. La Plata attempted to end the Tigers season early scoring two runs in the bottom of the first inning. Brashear looked to answer in C Y

the next frame with the first to runners Luke Baker and Gabe Thomas reaching base with no outs. The tigers were unable to take advantage and the score remained 0-2. In the bottom of the inning the game started to get out of reach, the Bulldogs scored six more runs to extend their lead

to 0-8. Things were looking bleak for the Tigers and La Plata did not let up in the following inning pushing the lead out to 0-15 and then adding two more runs in the 4th inning. The Tigers were able to fight back in the top of the 5th again having two runners reach base Baker and

Abby Hall but they were unable to cross the plate and the game ended 0-17. Lets give a big hand to the team and we all look forward to seeing you on the field next year.

The Number One team in the state of Missouri in Class One traveled North to put their record on the line in La Plata. The Hornets were the first seed in the District tournament held in La Plata and received a first round bye. They then took on the North Shelby Raiders in the second round. The Raiders scored in the top of the first inning but the Hornets would answer right back in the bottom of the frame. Garrett West singled to lead off, Lance Weber was hit by a pitch and then Lane Waddle singled to score West. Weber would then score on a passed ball and Atlanta took the lead 2-1. The Hornets would add two more in the second inning. Chase Wait would walk and then would be followed by a single from West. Ethon Baker would walk to load the bases for the Hornets. Weber would lash a single to left scoring two and bringing the Hornet lead to 4-0. In the bottom of the third the Hornets would continue the theme and score two more. West reached by an error and then Baker scored him on a single. Lance Weber would then double to center scoring Baker. In the forth the Hornets broke the trend and decided to score more then two runs. Collan Thrasher and Marty Halley singled. Gunnels ripped a single to center scoring Thrasher. Gunnels then followed that up with an RBI single of his own. Wait and West would follow with run scoring singles and Baker would cap things with a two run double. Atlanta would go on to dominate the game 11-1 and move on to the finals.

The Bevier Wildcats took to the road Monday Night for the first round of the Class One District 15 tournament at Cairo. On a windy spring evening the Wildcats took to the field against Keytesville. As always the Bevier rooting section made the trip to cheer on the boys; the Wildcats would not disappoint. Bevier would plate two in the first inning to take the early lead. Seth Shurvington and Andrew Peter would single to lead off. Colby Peukert would hit an RBI ground out to third and would be followed by and RBI single from Caleb Richardson and after one inning it was 2-0. Keytesville would tie the game up in the top of the third but the Wildcats would answer right back in the bottom of the inning. Caleb Richardson and Tony Humphreys singled and were chased home on a triple by Luke Long. Long would then score on a single by Caiti Bradley and the Wildcats lead was 5-2. The Wildcats would keep the ball rolling the right way in the next inning. Peukert and

In the Championship game the Hornets would face their rivals from just up Highway 63 the La Plata Bulldogs. The Atlanta faithful turned out in droves as more then one hundred made the short trip to cheer on the number one team in the state. The game got off just as you would expect from the number one team. West doubled to lead things off, Baker then tripled and just like that the lead was 1-0. Weber would send Baker home on a single and then Halley would later double to score Weber. Trey Johnston would single to center scoring Halley and Atlanta led 4-0. With the way the Atlanta’s pitching has been all season things looked in the bag. That would not be the case this night as La Plata scored five runs in the top of the 3rd and took a one run lead 4-5. The Hornets showed the heart of a champion coming back to score three in the forth. Wait was hit by a pitch, West walked and Baker reached on a fielders choice. Waddle then lined a double to left field clearing the base pads and giving the Hornets a 7-5 lead. The Bulldogs would answer in the next half inning tying the game and

then taking the lead on a passed ball. The game would remain that way going into the bottom of the 7th. Thrasher would lead off with a single to center. Halley would then single to center giving the Hornets two base runners and no outs. But tonight was not the night for the Hornets the runners remained stranded and the undefeated season came to a sudden end. The Hornets have so much to be proud of on the season, dominate pitching, timely hitting and excellent coaching by coach Pfeiffer. We look forward to more of same next season.

Then Long would double to score Richardson and Bevier would now lead 8-2. The Wild cats would secure their lead further with two runs in the 5th. Shurvington and Peter singled; urvington scored on a sac fly by Peukert and Peter on a wild pitch. Keytesville chipped away at the Wildcat lead in the 6th scoring two making the score 104. Bevier would get an insurance run in the bottom of the inning on a double by Dalton Ferguson and single by Long. Keytesville would again rally in the 7th scoring 3 but it was not enough.

The BMC Raiders traveled to Sweet Springs for the Class One District 14 Tournament. Friday May 16 Round 1“As a third seed we started off play with sixth seed Glasgow. It was a combination of good hitting and excellent pitching. River Wright picked up the win and NO HITTER by facing 16 batter and striking out 15. He was a dropped third strike away from a perfect game due to a throwing error. Our bats came alive during this game. Dane Robertson was two for three-including a double and a triple and Dakota Peterson was 2 for 4 and also tacked on 4 RBI’s. The top 8 in the line up all contributed a Run to the scoreboard. With a final score of 10-0. It’s simple math you have to get on to score runs and we did that tonight.” Coach Lucas Monday May 19Round 2“This game was decided by the wind, errors and pitching. We had an errorless game and that was the deciding factor. In the beginning I was worried about my pitching, due to MSHSAA pitching requirements River was down to five innings, so some last minute creativity helped in the end. We had a good fourth inning. Dakota Peterson reached on a bloop error, then Dylan Epperson pinched ran and then River Wright hit an opposite field dou-

ble, to the fence, to score Epperson. Brady Duncan moved Wright over to third with sacrifice bunt and Tim Ware scored Wright with an single up the middle. In the top half of the fifth I pulled Wright and put Dane Robertson in to get the hold. Robertson has a good curve but it wasn’t getting called so we concentrated low and on the corners. He walked the first batter, then the second batter hit a bloop single, to center, to score a run. Robertson cut off the throw home and got an out at one. Good fielding got us through the bottom half of the fifth. In the bottom half of the sixth Robertson had another lead of walk and the second batter popped out to right and the runner was doubled off. In the seventh Wright came back in for the save. He struck out the first two and a choppy roller, to the first baseman, Brady Duncan ended the game. The final score was 2-1. The game was a pitching dual. Wright had 11 strikeouts plus Wright and Robertson had a combined two hitter.” The Championship Game “I’m extremely proud of the boys. They have came along ways for a team with one win a year ago-fall and spring combined. What could go wrong today went wrong. River Wright had pitched 10 strong innings in the two prior

games and could only go two tonight. Dane Robertson came in as River’s relief and got knocked out of the game, by a line drive, after just an inning and a half of work. After that Dakota Peterson came in and pitched three innings. We battled back from a 0-8 deficit to plate 3 runs but fell short in the end. We made some amazing plays during this game but the boys had to play in some different positions, due to unforeseen circumstances. It was a tall feat when playing a team like Santa Fe and they just couldn’t quite pull it off. We are extremely looking forward to next year. Final score Santa Fe 8 Bucklin-Macon County 3.” Coach Riley Lucas

Heartland Headlines

Kindergarten Graduation

by Kathy Nickerson

The Heartland Christian Academy elementary school presented their spring musical in early May. Psalty’s Funtastic Family was produced by elementary teachers Jennifer Dombrowski and Elizabeth Sharpe, who also happen to be sisters. In fact, they make up twothirds of a set of triplets. Caleb Barton, a recruiter for Heartland Christian College, starred once again as Psalty the Singing Songbook. This year, Psalty gained a wife who was played by Caleb’s reallife bride, Stephanie. She wowed the crowed when

she arrived wearing her yellow songbook costume and pedaling her yellow bicycle. We were once again amazed by the creativity and dedication involved in this production. It is hard enough to get a room full of children to stand still, let alone getting them to all sidestep and twirl at exactly the same time! We want to give another round of applause to all the teaching staff and assistants who provided this labor of love. Thanks for keeping our children singing.

The April 7 meeting was called to order by Gary Smith. The March minutes were read by Arlene Bunch. Cindy Moore made the motion to accept the minutes as read. Arlene Bunch seconded the motion. The Treasurer’s report was read. Carolyn Craig made the motion to accept the report as read. Cindy Moore seconded the motion. Jack reported that the roof was jacked up on the Annex with no problem. The plaque for 1st La Plata site is at Randy Travis’ home. When the weather is good, he will put it up for us. There was discussion over moving the

chairs in Edina. We need to wait until space is available in Jack’s building to store them. There was a little discussion over the “Swing into Spring” fund-raiser. The City-Wide Yard Sale is coming June 14. FLPP is needing items for the sale. We will be setting up in front of the Green Theater. We discussed that a new FLPP sign was needed. This sign is displayed at our different functions. Sharron Burns made the motion that we get a new sign. Ann Bullock secoinded the mtion. There was no other business. The meeting was adjourned. The next meeting will be May 5th.

Home Circle Club met at the home of Linda Moots for brunch on May 15th. Following the brunch, a short business meeting was held with Nancy Durham presiding. Notes were written to send to Jackie Eitel, who is recov-

ering from heart surgery. A white elephant sale, auctioneered by Becky Mohan, replenished the club treasury. The June meeting will be at the La Plata Nursing Home.

Mike & Amy Smith and children, John & Jennifer Carson & children were Mother’s Day guests of their parents Mr. & Mrs. Paul Jensen. The Carson’s also visited WR and Barbara Buck & family.

The conversation was not directed toward me; but I overheard it and cringed inwardly. The group was actually bragging about not going to church. “I haven’t been to church in so long . . .” “Me either; I haven’t even met our new pastor/priest.” I listened carefully, hoping it was more a confession than a boast; but it did not seem so. The speakers seemed to be swaggering in a presumptuous spiritual strength that made church unnecessary for them. Since hearing that conversation, I have been remembering a hospital visit with a friend. He had just had heart bypass surgery and nearly died. “I used to brag,” he said, “About eating the unhealthy stuff and being a couch potato. This (his heart ailment) is the price I am paying.” He was one of the lucky ones—not everyone makes it. There is a connection in those two accounts. Spiritual neglect like physical neglect has a price, even though it may come slowly. Some of the group bragging about their spiritual negligence had small children. Those children will miss the instructions from the church and the fellowship of a church family. Having missed that, they most likely will fail to instruct their chil-

dren about God’s truths. Soon an entire generation will be oblivious to God’s presence in the world. That is frightening! All that is needed to become an unbelieving people is for one generation to miss out on God’s truth. I realize church attendance is not the only way we get to know God; but the church is the organism Jesus left to tell His message. Though never perfect, the church has proven itself through the ages. A parishioner in the far north grew angry at his church and ceased to attend. In the dead of winter, his vicar traveled through deep snow to visit him. “I don’t need the church to know God,” he told the vicar, as they sat before an open fire. The vicar rose and from the fireplace and with tongs took a red hot coal and laid it on the hearth. Soon the hot coal grew dim, then gray, then black. The vicar never said a word; but as he rose to leave, the parishioner said, “I get the message pastor. I’ll be back.” There is no doubt we can be Christians and not attend church; but it is better for us and for those we love to attend.

Clarence Chronicles by Patty Truitt

It has really been a beautiful week. I love the great summer weather we are now getting. I do believe I have lost some of my shopping skills. Last Thursday the 15th I had to see my doctor in Columbia. My appointment was at 2:30 so I left early to stop at Moberly and shop. I stopped at Lowe’s, Goodwill and Pay-less Shoes and I left Moberly with only an iced tea from McDonald’s. I got to the doctors at 2 and was not finished until after 5 so I stopped at Home Depot and come home empty handed. I bought nothing. Disappointing. Saturday the 17th was Kenny’s birthday and I wanted to do something special. I had to work Saturday so I came home and cooked fried chicken, mashed potatoes, gravy, corn on the cob and homemade biscuits. He loved it, as this is his favorite meal. Sunday I took him to Kirksville, We stopped at Hastings and got two new movies, then I took him to Home Depot and we went to Colton’s Steak house for lunch. We both had a great day. He got cards and calls from all the kids so he had a happy birthday. The school year has wound down this week. The school had track and field on Tuesday. Both my granddaughters Norma and Bella Wood had lots of fun with all the activities of the day. Of course their Mom and Dad, Jessi-

ca and Raymond, had a lot of fun watching the girls enjoy the day. All the kids had a lot of fun and several parents and grandparents turned out to watch. Jessica and Raymond Wood, Norma and Bella came by to visit with Grandpa and me this afternoon. Tomorrow is their last day of school and the awards program. They are now excited about summer school, and Bible School coming up. Tonight I went to the Clarence Senior Center to play cards. Eighteen senior citizens and two young people were there. Trevor Collins who is from Clarence has graduated from collage and is home to visit his parents, Jim and Marsha Collins. Visiting with him is his girlfriend Kelly; she is from Joplin and is a delightful girl. It was fun to have young people to come play cards. I wish more young people would come join us to play cards on Wednesday night. I am going to Callao tomorrow to pick up daughter Laura and grandson Derek and we are going to put flowers on the graves of our family. This is something I do every year, this year Derek wants to know all about the family members who has passed. Should be an interesting day. Hope everyone has and good Memorial Day weekend. And pray all of you have a good week. Patty
