White Rock Little Leaguers
........They're Coming Home From Little League World Series
The White Rock ALL STARS had a great run to make it to the Little League World Series. Unfortunately their stellar play ran out in the finals in Williamsport PA.
Yesterday's game against the Mid-West reps from Missouri in the elimination round was never in doubt. The Mid-West emerged winners with an 18-6 score.
Midwest scored nine runs in the sixth inning.
Canada's poor play in the field contributed to the loss. Canada gave up two unearned runs while committing five errors over the course of the game.
White Rock's Alen Sugimoto ended up on the wrong side of the pitching decision, charged with the loss. He lasted just two-thirds of an inning, walked three, struck out one, and allowed five runs.
The game was never in doubt after the third, as Midwest scored five runs on an RBI double by Gayman, a sacrifice fly by Blake Smith, and an RBI single by McCallister.
Midwest increased its lead with four runs in the fifth. Weathers started the inning with a two-run home run, scoring Smith. That was followed up by Parker's double, bringing home Smith.
Meanwhile the Chilliwack Corn Maze’s design this year is a silhouette of Fox on his journey across Canada and has the words " Terry Fox 1980-2015 on one side and "35 years" on the other. The message refers to the anniversary of Terry Fox’s Run For Hope.

Yell It Like It Is
A real life game of whack a mole is underway in White Rock.
Developers are backed up outside of the permits office at city hall. This week with his permission we have reprinted a letter from DENNIS LYPKA a candidate in the November 2014 civic election that contains his thoughts on the proverbial lay of the land in "our city by the sea."
Bubba and Junior were standing at the base of a flagpole, looking up. A lady walked by and asked what they were doing.
"We're supposed to find the height of the flagpole," said Bubba, "but we don't have a ladder."
The woman took a wrench from her purse, loosened a few bolts, and laid the pole down. Then she took a tape measure from her pocket, took a measurement and announced, "Eighteen feet, six inches," before walking away.
Junior shook his head and laughed. "Ain't that just like a dumb blond? We ask for the height, and she gives us the length!."
