Big step in battle started locally
It's nice to imagine the late, great pharmacist Parke Baxter - a good neighbor if there ever was one - looking down from on high at what Harry Webb hath wrought.

It is safe to say he would beam with pride. He would like the poise with which his successor Webb and cohorts struck a blow in the war against drug abuse. He would like their quiet persistence, their reliance on cold, hard facts and their willingness to do the right thing.

Wabash blanks slumping RHS

Rochester baseball coach Cory Good could tell that Wabash had a more experienced team than his just by watching them in pregame warm-ups Wednesday.

Then they proved it even further during the game.

Jordan Burnsworth homered and drove in five runs, and Jordan Holley pitched a five-hit shutout with eight strikeouts as the Apaches beat RHS 12-0 in five innings at Bob Copeland Field.
