Lakeside Youth Baseball facility damaged by Friday’s flood

JUNE 19, 3:21 P.M. – The Lakeside Youth Baseball organization and facility has suffered hits from powerful storms before, and now it has happened again.

A June 16 storm caused localized flooding in Lakeside, and it was enough to damage LYB fields, concessions and equipment – days before two scheduled all-star tournaments it was set to host.

The timing was particularly unfortunate, said LYB Secretary Connie Fredericksen, because the regular season has just finished and all of the equipment that managers carry was at the field in the equipment room during the storm.

Law promotes alternatives to suspending students


Suspension from school long has been linked to academic failure. Students are away from the classroom for up to several days, missing out on material taught in class and falling behind. Meanwhile, assignments pile up, making a difficult situation even worse.

A new state law will encourage Virginia schools to seek alternatives to suspensions in dealing with students who misbehave. The law, which takes effect July 1, directs the Virginia Board of Education to “establish guidelines for alternatives to short-term and long-term suspension for consideration by local school boards. Such alternatives may include positive behavior incentives, mediation, peer-to-peer counseling, community service, and other intervention alternatives.”
