Congratulations again to the Elizabethtown Dixie Youth AAA Minor League All Star team, headed to the State Playoffs in Dunn beginning July 5. They defeated West Robeson in the championship game, both teams advance to the playoffs.
Brings back memories from the 70s and 80s. … An Elizabethtown team was playing a Wilmington team, either in Lumberton or Laurinburg. Score was 0-0 late in the game, Elizabethtown team had a runner on 3rd (Dennis Meshaw???). He attempted to score and was ruled out on interference call. Very controversial call. … Think that doesn’t leave a lasting memory? Ask those on the team or their coaches. … About as close as our teams ever came to advancing against numerous very good Wilmington teams.
The 2019 All-Stars and their coaches are making memories that will last a lifetime.
Funds needed to assist with expenses. Donations accepted, I am sure. … Supporters are sponsoring a car wash.
Someone recently shared Old Farmer’s Advice …
Your fences need to be horse-high, pig-tight and bull-strong.
Keep skunks and bankers at a distance.
Life is simpler when you plow around the stump.
One more: A bumble bee is considerably faster than a John Deere tractor.
