Bearcats, Arlington Heights play for state berth in regional finals series that begins Thursday

June 3, 2015 by Tony Eierdam

Aledo senior third baseman Garrett Uhl was probably offering the same sentiments as his coaches after Aledo’s 1-0 win in game three over Canyon last weekend that clinched a regional semifinals series.

The victory marked the third straight series where AHS had dropped the opener of a best-of-3 series only to come back to win the next two games to seal the series.

“Maybe,” Uhl said, “we can win the first game of a series some time.”

That time is now in the regional finals against “cross town” rival Fort Worth Arlington Heights.

Administrative error led to excessive rainfall

June 1, 2015 by Randy Keck

After publication of this column last week, I was asked to share it online. I originally wrote it in 2007, but it seemed applicable to the last few weeks. I hope you enjoy.

Rainfall for 2015 has been WAY above average, especially after the last few years of drought, and I decided that a good investigative reporter ought to be able to find out why. But where do you go to check for such things?

I found the answers I was looking for at the Rainfall Division of the Heavenly Office of Answered Prayers (HOAP). Don’t ask me how I reached them – it’s a confidential source.
