Turnovers doom Bulldogs
October 4, 2007
LOUISBURG — Turnovers can be a momentum killer in the game of football. Baldwin High School coach Mike Berg knows that all too well. His Bulldogs (3-2) committed three turnovers during the third quarter on three consecutive possessions. They went on to lose 31-20 against the Louisburg Wildcats (5-0) here Friday night.
Garcia runs through mental barrier
October 4, 2007
Heather Garcia may have fallen short of her goal Saturday, but she broke through a mental barrier in the process. Garcia, a senior at Baldwin High School, had a goal of winning the Rim Rock Classic. Instead she finished third in a time of 14:56.80, only 10 seconds behind the winner, Blue Valley Northwest’s Laura Roxberg. “I am proud of myself, because I passed out a couple of times last year,” Garcia said.
Turn back the clock
October 4, 2007
Baldwin High School’s offense doesn’t require a quarterback or wide receivers. Just four running backs are needed. Welcome the single wing. “It’s been a fun offense,” BHS coach Mike Berg said. “What I like about it is we are physical. You have to be physical to run it and that’s what we have been working on this year. Even though the other team might know where the ball is going to go, we still run it there.”
BHS homecoming set to roll
October 4, 2007
Homecoming week at Baldwin High School is an annual event enjoyed by the student body and this year is no exception. The annual spirit week began Tuesday and will be capped off with the BHS homecoming dance Friday after the home football game. In the middle of all that are pep rallies, a parade and, of course, the homecoming ceremony.
District boundaries, transfers discussed
October 4, 2007
Baldwin School District patrons had their first chance to speak out about elementary school transfers, class sizes and boundary lines. The two main points from Tuesday’s meeting were parents want in-district transfers allowed and the boundary lines shouldn’t be changed. A total of 16 parents attended the meeting that was held for the two elementary schools in town.
Leaf burning compromise agreed upon
October 4, 2007
It’s a smoldering compromise for now, but leaf burning will still be allowed this year — with regulations. The Baldwin City Council passed on first reading a new ordinance at Monday’s meeting that will limit the number of leaf fires per day to 25. It won’t take effect until second reading at the next council meeting, but should be in place for leaf burning season, a long-standing tradition for the town known for its many trees … and corresponding leaves.
Changes in store for Maple Leaf
October 4, 2007
It’s just around the corner. The Maple Leaf Festival will be here soon and there will be some changes for the 50th anniversary this year. Aside from the ban on animals — targeted mostly at dogs as a result of a young girl being bitten in the face last year — there will be other tweaks to Baldwin City’s premier event. Those were mentioned at Monday’s meeting of the city council.
Time for Blues, Barbecue once again
October 4, 2007
There will be good food and good music when the fourth-annual Blues and Barbecue event takes over downtown Baldwin City Saturday for the Lumberyard Arts Center Project fundraiser. One of the founders of the event, Sandy Cardens, is pleased to see that it has caught on. “I’m really pleased to know this is the fourth annual Blues and Barbecue,” said Cardens, also a LAC board member. “I’d always hoped it would become a tradition for the Lumberyard Arts Center and for Baldwin City. It appears that is actually happening.” Plenty of barbecue will be on hand, as well as a good helping of blues music.
