Blue Creek Township is a sparsely populated area these days with only the small town of Haviland, and 1/2 of the town of Scott(the other half is in Van Wert County)...of about 800 folks, who call Blue Creek Township, Ohio, home. This is where my family moved to just after the Civil War. Nelson S. Houseworth, wife Mary Ann, and their brood spread out from there. Their graves are all that remain of the Houseworth Clan in Paulding County today.
After getting to the High School, doing a JV game that Sam was slated to do, but with him at school and a OSU-Lima double header to follow, I volunteered to take this place....My partner Gene had suffered a severe wrist sprain, so I did the plate...As I mentioned the wind almost is always blowing across the flat lands of Blue Creek Township, yesterday afternoon was no exception. A 30 to 40 MPH wind coming over the center field fence was blowing dust and debris right into my face mask....by the time the 2 hour, 7 inning, game(won by Miller City 6-5)was over I felt I needed a gallon of Visine, perhaps industrial power, would be in order....my eyes were a mess. I finished up and headed for Van Wert, taking in our final rules meeting of the year. Afterward several of us, including Sam(who had returned from his double header loss), got together at Pizza Hut and toasted the start of another baseball season.
Tonight I will make another long trip north to Paulding County, this time to Antwerp, about 50 miles away, and do a Varsity game between the home standing Archers and Hilltop. Meanwhile tomorrow and next week's games look to be hit and miss affairs, wind, rain, and even some snow, with temperatures(some in the low 40s) coming for tomorrow and early next week.
Yes, it appears that winter will make an unwelcome return to western Ohio...but this is April in the Buckeye State, if you don't like the weather, stick around a couple of hours, and it will change.
Glenn Beck continues to drive the left wingers nuts.
Beck has the leftist morons of entertainment and media running scared...the NY Times, PBS, David Letterman, MSNBC, and Comedy Central Democratic Lapdogs, Stewart and Colbert, have Glenn in their sights more than they ever had the likes of Limbaugh and O'Reilly...Beck is saying stuff about the coming Socialist/Fascist takeover of the Government, that these folks don't like. This means he must be hitting close to home..
Keep it up Glenn....we have your back....Woodrow Wilson lives, he just has a darker tan, big ears, a funny Islamic name, and a wife who should remind all of of a combination of Eva Peron and Marie Antoinette.
God, Guns, Goods, and Voting these sonsabitches out of office...all of them, are the only ways to save the USA. The Republicans and especially the Democrats are out to destroy the Republic, and sweeping them, all of them, out of office is the only way to save this country and take it back.
"Unite or Die" and "Don't Tread on Us" has to be the Battle Cry of those that care about his this nation.
