The building was built in 1881. Regardless, it’s gone now and the church certainly looks different, especially for long-time Ives Chapel goers. “Oh, my, yeah, it does look different,” said Alice Gurley. “I’ve been going there since I was a kid.

Only one-half point separated the Baldwin High School wrestling team from third place at the fifth-annual Baldwin Invitational Tournament Saturday, as the Bulldogs placed fourth in the 11-team field. BHS had one champion and six others place either third or fourth in a tournament that was loaded with talent. “It went really smooth,” Harris said. “We had a lot of great help.
