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.

America’s first university – almost

Varina site can make historical claim
Students and alumni of the College of William & Mary take pride in the fact that theirs is the second-oldest college in America, pre-dated only by Harvard.

Those in the know – and with a competitive bent – like to point out that when it comes to vision, forethought, and planning for the university, W&M beat Harvard to the punch by decades.

‘Maronite marathon’

Church members gear up for 27th annual Lebanese Food Festival
Take a few hundred pounds of grape and cabbage leaves, another few hundred pounds of ground lamb, an army of industrious volunteers and what do you get?

Enough Lebanese delicacies to last through the weekend – you hope.

When the 27th annual Lebanese Food Festival opens May 13 at 10 a.m., it will bring an end to months of preparation for the volunteers from St. Anthony Maronite Catholic Church – and launch a three-day weekend of even more frenzied chopping, baking, stuffing and grilling.
