October 26, 2006

October 26, 2006

Long-awaited Liston victory
October 26, 2006
A 27-0 victory over Avila University was a landmark win for the Baker University football team for several reasons. The Wildcats hosted the Eagles Saturday night after many Baldwin City visitors left town because of a soggy Maple Leaf Festival. The rain went away as the Wildcats claimed their 500th win as a program. The win was also the first by Baker at home this fall. It was the first victory on the new artificial turf at historic Liston Stadium. “That monkey is off of our back now,” coach Mike Grossner said.
Rain dampens 49th festival
October 26, 2006
Don’t rain on my parade” is how the song goes, but an additional line this year would be “or the Maple Leaf Festival.” But, that’s what happened. A steady rain most of the day Saturday, coupled with cold temperatures, dramatically cut attendance and fun at the 49th version of the fall classic. Some are calling it a disaster. “Yes, it was,” said Police Chief Mike McKenna. “You can’t control the weather. You have to live with what you get. Saturday was one of those days where you have to wait it out.” With the election year, it was expected that the festival parade would be one of the longest ever. That didn’t happen. The politicians were in full force, but there were plenty of no-shows, said Sherri Caldwell, parade chairperson. However, the new route with a turn north on Sixth Street instead of Eighth Street didn’t cause any major problems.

Consultant suggests community center
October 26, 2006
A consultant hired by the city, school district and recreation commission told those groups Tuesday night that a multi-use community center is feasible in Baldwin City. Jeff King, of Ballard-King Associates, studied the demographics of Baldwin and a 10-mile radius around it for a year. His recommended facility would be over 43,000 square feet, which would cost roughly $8.6 million.
