Hoops Galore

W8 2 TXT

It was “Red Thumb Day” at the Glasgow High School yesterday afternoon, and one
of the fingernail painters was Mylee Rasmusan, brushing it on nice and thick while
enjoying a lolipop. It was a sea of red indeed as students and staffers were all sporting
W8 2 TXT t-shirts. The idea is simple: a painted thumb nail (or a red band which lots
of the guys were sporting) will remind you that each time you open a car door or place
your hands on a steering wheel, the red color will remind you not to text and drive.

As if the NCAA Men’s
Basketball
Tournament
isn’t supplying us with
enough
hoops
this
weekend, we’ve got even
more teams and more
games going on right
here in Glasgow as the
18th Annual Jeff Jurgens
Memorial
Tournament
begins this evening and
wraps up on Sunday.

A total of 81 teams in
grades 4-10 (both boys and
girls) will all be competing
for the coveted Jeff Jergens
hoodies.
Teams
are
arriving from as far away
as Regina, Saskatchewan.
4th and 5th grade
teams will play at the
Glasgow High School gym;
6th graders have the East
Side court; 7th grade is at
St. Raphael’s; 8th graders
play at Evangelical; and the
high school girls and boys
will be at the Civic Center.
Some of the brackets
will get underway tonight
at 6:00. Books with all the
rosters and brackets will be
available at each site.

family they have ever known. Once outside, old discoveries are quickly rendered meaningless
with the revelation of shocking new truths. Tris and Four must quickly decide who they can trust
as a ruthless battle ignites beyond the walls of Chicago which threatens all of humanity. In order
to survive, Tris will be forced to make impossible choices about courage, allegiance, and sacrifice.

Some thematic
elements, rude

Cast: Ginnifer Goodwin, Jason Bateman
Description: The modern mammal metropolis of Zootopia is a city like no other. Comprised
of habitat neighborhoods like ritzy Sahara Square and frigid Tundratown, it’s a melting pot
where animals from every environment live together—a place where no matter what you are,
from the biggest elephant to the smallest shrew, you can be anything. But when rookie officer
Judy Hopps (voice of Ginnifer Goodwin) arrives, she discovers that being the first bunny on a
police force of big, tough animals isn’t so easy. Determined to prove herself, she jumps at the
opportunity to crack a case, even if it means partnering with a fast-talking, scam-artist fox, Nick
Wilde (voice of Jason Bateman), to solve the mystery.

Sweet 16 bracket back at ya

March Madness officially kicked off on Thursday,
and by Sunday night the NCAA Men’s Basketball
Tournament will be whittled down to the Sweet 16.
The biggest upset yesterday would have to be 12thseeded Yale knocking off 5th-seeded Baylor 79-75. It marks
the Bulldogs’ first victory at the Big Dance since 1962.

Back this year, the Buzz will once again be having
the Sweet 16 Bracket for everyone to try their luck for
free. Adult prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place finishers

in Montana” crown as the Montana Mint once again has
its Pizza bracket which Eugene’s won last year.
The Montana Mint Pizza Championship Bracket

winner of a write-in ballot.

Career politicians, liars and a man for the job

I’ve just about had my fill of people bashing Donald
Trump based on what they see and hear on Television. If you
are really that stupid, believing those talking heads don’t have
an agenda, call me.....I have some Ocean Front Property in
Iowa I’d like to talk to you about.
Do a little research. Of all the Candidates from
the beginning, who is the proven Manager? The proven
negotiator? The one with enough guts to say what needs to
be said and Political Correctness be damned.

Name another Candidate who isn’t in someone’s hip
pocket. Be they donor, lobbyist or Super-Pac operator.

Trump has his faults, but he’s only human. Some folks
try and say he’s too egotistical..........I’d bet a large sum of
money that if they built a Muti-National, Muti-Billion Dollar
business, they’d have an ego that would rub some folks the
wrong way as well.

We’re down to five Candidates, I’ll give you my take on
Wheneach
I feel
one.down and someone
tells me
“SuckSanders:
it up”, IAnother
get the career Politician who never
toBernie
urge had
to break
their
with
a real job
andlegs
thinks
the a
way you do things is just give
baseball
bat
and
then
say
“Walk
everybody free stuff. When nailed down in a one-on-one
it off!”interview will balkingly admit that a lot of the free stuff
will be paid for by the middle class. I wouldn’t vote for this
Communist.

Hillary Clinton: LIAR. That pretty much sums her up.
If she wasn’t so well connected and so far left, even the Media
would nail her. The only other thing to say about her can be
said in one word: Benghazi.

John Kasich: Another long time Politico who
constantly reminds you of his time in Washington prior to
his Governorship. Not anything to brag about in my book.
Took money from George Soros, the man who owns Obama.

Ted Cruz: He’s not quite the liar Hillary is, but he does
have a history. His campaigns are smitten with shady deals,
all quite similar to the crap he pulled on Ben Carson in Iowa.
His actual “legal” right to run for President has yet to be
addressed by him directly. He too is owned by big money
donors.

Donald J. Trump: The ONLY Candidate who is self
funded. The only candidate who continually talks about how
much this Country means to him. He supports our Vets, our
Law Enforcement, and wants to gives back a Strong Military.

Hillary bashes Trump by saying we don’t need to make
America Great again, We still are great............Lady (and I
use that term loosely) if you think America is great in our
current condition, you need some serious Counseling.
The Mainstream Media, The Democrats, The
Republican Establishment and radical leftist groups are all
against Trump.......that in itself tells me he’s the man for the
Job.

people watching.

A man working with an electric saw accidentally
cuts off all of his fingers. At the emergency room, his
doctor says, “Give me the fingers, and I’ll see what I can
do.”
The injured man replies, “But I don’t have the
fingers!”

“Why didn’t you bring them?” the doctor asks.
The injured man responds, “Doc, I couldn’t pick

Reds Baseball, Only a Dream?

The Babe Ruth League is an international youth baseball
and softball league that was started in 1951 for the benefit of
learning the game at different levels of play.

Cal Ripken – Any player born prior to May 1, 2012
and on or after May 1, 2003 will be eligible for Cal Ripken
Baseball League competition.

13-15 – Any player born prior to May 1, 2003 and on or
after May 1, 2000 will be eligible for Babe Ruth 13-15 League
competition.

Glasgow Baseball is still strong…..Some people seem to
not have all of the facts when commenting on our Legion
and Babe Ruth programs. Legion Baseball lost 11 seniors last
year and five underclassman. A program that had two teams.
To make the second team complete, they pulled up 10 players
that were still eligible for Babe Ruth, including a 13-year-old
and a 12-year-old. Necessary?? I guess it depends on who
you ask. Could we have had three Babe Ruth teams? Yes. The
reasons for not having three Babe Ruth teams were that the
kids who moved up to the B team were promised more games
and playing time. Did they get that? Probably! So why did
we lose underclassmen? Some of them needed to get jobs to
pay for college, some wanted more free time for the summer,
and maybe some don’t care for the coach. It happens all the

I am not sure if anyone has actually asked the 15-yearsolds why they choose to stay in Babe Ruth. I am not sure why
someone actually thinks the Babe Ruth coaches are making
these decisions. As far as I know, most of these coaches have
not had a conversation with the players since season ended
last year, unless it is to say hi in passing. Yes, they would
like a shot at a state title and a shot at Regionals, and they
have a better shot playing against teams their own age verses
16-19-year-old teams. If they can make it happen, they will
have those memories for the rest of their lives. Is winning
everything? No, but winning in sports develops drive to be
successful adults. What is wrong with that? Someone said
that winning is not the attitude to have in team sports. At
what point do we teach our kids to start competing and
winning? When trying to talk to a player about his decision
to stay on the Babe Ruth one more year, the response I
received was “this is MY team, these 15-year-old players are
the kids I have been playing with since I was 10. I want one
more year with them.” He also said “we have been at the
same field practicing every day for two years and the legion
players don’t even talk to us when they walk by.” I guess my
point is if your Legion Program/Coach encourage that kind
of division I am not sure what you expect. The brotherhood
talked about by the community doesn’t seem to extend to
the younger players if they don’t idolize legion players and/or
coaches.

Do I think these 15-years-olds could compete at Legion
level? Yes! So if these 15-year-olds decided to double roster
(Babe Ruth and Legion), who will be upset in July when their
player goes to the bench because they are being replaced by a
15-year-old?

Do I want my child on a bus that allows chewing and
gambling? No! Do I hope that I have raised my child to
make the right decision and not do those things? Yes, but by
allowing a coach to be responsible for my child I would hope
that my child is not put in that scenario. Rules are rules.

Do I want there to be a Legion team? Absolutely! Does
this upset me too? Yes! But do I think I should force my child
to play Legion ball when he doesn’t want to? No. Should I
make him because it is what the program needs? Depends
on who you ask. Remember we have this problem because
of shortage of kids, not because my child doesn’t want to
play Legion. I know this community supports Glasgow Reds
Baseball, Babe Ruth and Cal Ripken and I thank you all for
that. I believe we will get through this cycle, just like we
always have. If you need numbers to complete the Legion
team then I suggest you find out why we are at a loss of kids
ages 16-18.

Instead of making assumptions, you need to visit with
the past players that are actually the correct age for the Legion
program and stop BLAMING the players that are not of age
for Legion.

Concerned baseball mom,
