Paddling To Alaska - Part Seven

Paddling To Alaska - Part Seven

By Kelly Yelverton

Editor’s Note: Lyons resident Kelly Yelverton recently graduated from Lewis & Clark College in Portland, Oregon. To celebrate her accomplishment, she and a friend have decided to paddle their sea kayaks on a 1,200-mile journey through the Inside Passage to Alaska. She will be sending updates and photo of her adventure throughout the summer.

Paddling the two hundred miles from Ketchikan to Juneau, we wound our way into increasingly stunning channels and straits. The snowy mountains up here crowd ever closer to the water, and seem to grow larger each day. Just as the views have become

Champs Are Crowned

 

So often the big game never lives up to the hype preceding it. The title game for this year’s co-ed softball league would have definitely been worthy of the hype, if there had been any hype.  The once beaten (last week by the Natural Disasters) Blue Mountain Stone Quarry Workers took on the Paddy Whackers, a team they had beaten twice during the regular season, Monday night in Bohn Park with championship bragging rights on the line. The Whackers drew first blood with a lone run in the home half of the first inning. The Quarry Workers knotted the score with a run of their own in the top of the second. The Whackers upped the

Season Finale, Bring On The Play Offs

There is an old saying in the hills of West Virginia; “If ya wanna run with the big dogs, ya gotta come out from under the porch.” Monday night in Bohn Park, the Natural Disasters came out from under the porch, chased down the big dog (Blue Mountain Stone), and bite him on the backside. Playing in their final game of the regular season, the Disasters were determined right from the outset. Holding their opponents scoreless in the first inning, the Disasters rocked BMS for five scores in the bottom half of the frame. Being down at all, never mind by five runs after one inning is not something the Quarry Workers are accustomed to. With their interest now piqued, Blue Mountain Stone started to get back into the game. With two runs in the second, and

Near Upsets Abound!

The long arm of Major League Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig stretched all the way to Lyons Co-Ed Softball League Monday night as the Chamber Rockers, without the services of Patty “PED” Pedooski; one of their female players who was suspended for the remainder of the 2013 season, had to take on Shake N’ Bake in the first game of the evening. Unfazed by the suspension, the Chamber “nine” rocked the Bakers for four runs in the first inning. Unfortunately, out in the field, particularly the spacious

Softball Season Nearly Over

The Lyons Parks & Rec., Co-Ed Adult softball season is starting to wind down, with only the final scheduled game next week (Monday, August 5) and a make-up rain out game (Monday, August 12) left on the slate. The biggest question remains, “Can anyone knock off Blue Mountain Stone?” Fast Signs came close Monday night,

The Rich Get Richer And The Poor Get Poorer

The always well-coiffed Hooligans took on McHeaters in the opening game of the Adult Co-Ed Softball games at Bohn Park Monday night. Hoolie first base woman Deb Sims pontificated, “If we don’t look good, we can’t play good.”  Be that as it may, the well-groomed Hooligans might have been better served if their fleet-footed outfielder Dana “Sparky” Richards, just back from a holiday in “America’s Vacationland” (Maine) with a sprained ankle, could have done more than cheer from the dugout. The Hooligans
