Another election wraps up tomorrow (Tuesday), the 9th Republican Congressional Primary, as well as a General Election for District 3 Bladen County Commissioner seat, and two members elected to serve on the local Soil and Water Conservation Committee. Confusing….We should know if we will have a second primary or a general election, next in the congressional race. For losers, no problem, just hang around and file early next year for more of the same.
Another great outing for MacKenzie Gore, Columbus County native, and hot pitching prospect for the San Diego Padres baseball team. Gore’s Lake Elsinore Storm 1A team lost 8-0 to San Jose Saturday night. But, another good performance by Gore. He pitched 5.2 innings, gave up 4 hits, 1 earned run (a homer), recorded 7 strikeouts, tossed 89 pitches including 58 strikes. Storm relief pitchers had a tough night.
