Women's Recreation Softball League to Play Through August

Article Image Alt Text
During the spring season eight teams of "amazing" Livingston women play in the Livingston Recreation Women's Softball League for residents ages 30 and over. Notes organizer Kimberly Schwartz, "Over the years, we have tried to continue into the summer as the men do; but, until now, we’d not had much luck. But somehow the moons aligned and thanks to some fortitude of women determined (and the help of TeamSnap organizing) we have 39 ladies signed up to play through mid-August."

Whose Responsibility Is It?

The Tribune this week received a call from a very angry reader who demanded that the newspaper "do something" to force the town manager to put the flags at half-staff in memory of the five U.S. service members who were slain by a gunman in Chattanooga last week. While we do not condone the caller's tone nor should we have had to listen to his foul language, we did opt to look into his concern.
