February 15, 2007
Despite lousy wet weather and the threat of freezing rain and snow, about 40 people showed up at Baker University Monday night to hear the first candidate forum for the seven candidates for Baldwin City Council. Moderator Ivan Huntoon, who is vice president of the Baldwin City Chamber of Commerce and in charge of the forums, explained the rules of the forum, then allowed each candidate to give opening comments before starting a series of questions. The candidates answered according to a drawing to determine who went first, which was then skipped to the next candidate for the subsequent question.

February 15, 2007
LOUISBURG — One point was all that separated the Baldwin High School wrestling team from winning the Frontier League Championship here Saturday. Baldwin fell to Gardner-Edgerton after the 215-pound Trailblazer won by a 4-1 decision. That victory gave Gardner 182 points, which was just enough to defeat Baldwin at 181 points. “I was very happy with how hard everybody wrestled and the effort we put out,” coach Kit Harris said. “It was an exciting day of wrestling. When you shoot for the top and you come up that short, there is obviously some pain.”
