BHS running backs trample Titans
November 15, 2007
Goodbye, Columbus. Hello, Class 4A state football semifinals. Baldwin buried the Titans under a relentless ground attack and coasted to a 56-22 victory in Friday night’s quarterfinal at Liston Stadium. “We challenged our offensive line to keep the ball out of their hands,” Baldwin coach Mike Berg said. “That was the key to the game.”
Baker whips Eagles to earn its first winning season since 2000
November 15, 2007
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Season finales like this don’t come around too often. Baker University’s football team (6-5) ran all over Avila University here Saturday … literally. The Wildcats rushed for 411 yards as they routed the Eagles 58-23 to finish the 2007 season. This was the first winning season for Baker since 2000.
Column: BHS ‘white out’ Friday night
November 15, 2007
Too much purple can be a bad thing. Friday’s match-up in Louisburg will of course feature the Baldwin High Bulldogs and Louisburg Wildcats. Both schools are purple and white. As the home team, the Wildcats will be sporting the purple uniforms. BHS will be wearing the whites. If Baldwin fans want to stand out as the Class 4A sub-state football game, I have a proposal. I call it the Baldwin “white out.”
Rematch has bigger reward
November 15, 2007
Rematches are rare during a football season. Despite the odds, Friday’s Class 4A sub-state football contest will feature two teams familiar with each other. The Baldwin High School Bulldogs (10-2) will travel to take on the Louisburg Wildcats (12-0) for a shot at redemption for a mid-season loss. One difference — winner of this game receives a berth into the 4A state title game on Nov. 24 in Salina. “Our players see this as a rematch,” BHS coach Mike Berg said. “They respect Louisburg and what kind of team they have. I don’t think it’s going to be a lopsided game either way, unless a team comes out and makes a lot of mistakes.”
Too many mistakes

BHS senior project helps homeless
November 15, 2007
A Baldwin City teen’s school project lit up faces at Lawrence’s Community Drop-In Center on Tuesday night. Seventeen-year-old Robbie Brewster shyly passed out backpacks and totebags to a crowded house of people who are entering the winter season in a state of homelessness. Some recipients quietly received the bags and stepped out of the crowd. Others gave Brewster elaborate handshakes and high-fives. “This is exceptional — the magnitude of it, the number of gifts, and the thoughtfulness of one young man organizing this,” said Loring Henderson, director of the Lawrence Community Shelter. Brewster’s “survival kits” contained blankets, canned sausages, nuts, shampoo, soap, deodorant, razors, combs and other toiletries, books and Bibles. He passed out 50 packs.

November 15, 2007

BHS assembly draws outrage, apologies
November 15, 2007
A series of mistakes surrounded an assembly at Baldwin High School last Thursday, turning what was intended to be a Veterans Day tribute into military recruitment where “inappropriate language and images” were used. All high school students attended the assembly in which a speaker from the military’s recruitment command delivered a speech aimed at recruiting soldiers that didn’t honor veterans, said Supt. Paul Dorathy. A power-point display shown behind the speaker included several slides that contained profanity and pro-war messages.
