Softball tourney success

To the Editor:

I would like to take a moment and thank everyone involved with making the Eric Corl Memorial Softball Tournament a success.

Mamie Nilson for doing most, and I mean practically everything in organizing this great event; Parks and Rec for getting the field ready for us; Little League for running concessions and selling our sweatshirts; Duane Bell for umping the games. Without Duane’s volunteering his time and his skill we would really be scrambling for good umps. Last to all the teams that showed up to play. Big thanks to Earnie’s Co-Ed from Sitka in being our first out of town team to play.

Eli’s Building Repair won the tournament in a double header against a tough Harbor Bar team on Sat. May 19.

The EBR team, past, present and future would like to say thank you Eric Corl for being with us from the beginning to forever. You made us play like champions.

Fly the flag

To the Editor:

What a shame. More non American flags flying on Memorial Day than the stars and stripes that so many have given and are still giving so much for.

Shame on our local government, local stores and all the citizens that don’t care enough to fly our flag.

Mike Tolsen
