Who knew that when they fired all the people at the Lawrence Journal World they also changed the mascot of Baldwin. Remember when they used to be the Bulldogs?

And the Journal World staffing cuts are already rearing their ugly head! Our hometown newspaper now doesn't even know that we are the Baldwin BULLDOGS NOT the Baldwin Wildcats!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Do us all a favor and just close the paper and let some local take up the torch rather than trying to run it from a remote location with reporters that don't even know us!
