Round Rock, TX – Catcher Mike Napoli smashed a walkoff three-run homer in the bottom of the ninth inning to stake the Round Rock Express to a 9-6 victory over the Nashville Sounds on Sunday evening at The Dell Diamond in the finale of a four-game series.
It marked the third straight night that Round Rock scored the game-winning run in its final turn at the plate against Sounds pitching.
The Sounds had rallied from a two-run deficit to tie the score in the top of the ninth inning before Napoli’s blast, which came off Sounds reliever Sean Green, ended the contest.
Clarksville, TN – So often non-profit organizations and churches take their noble missions for granted in expecting businesses and individuals to support their programs. While there is the tax write off incentive and brand marketing exposure for contributions, it takes a special kind of person to weigh the needs of the business against the needs of the organization requesting assistance.
LEAP Executive Director Richard “Reason” Garrett had this to say, “I, myself have been guilty of utilizing media to solicit support for various projects to better our community. Although, it’s for a worthy cause, I recognize that we must do a better job of acknowledging those who make our outreach efforts possible.”

Weekly jobless claims remained moderately high. The ISM Manufacturing Index rebounded partly in June, but the details were mixed.
The stock market picked among the economic news, ignoring the poor economic data and embracing the favorable reports. Progress on an austerity package in Greece reduced near-term worries about the European sovereign debt situation, helping to fuel stock market gains. Bond prices fell, pushing the 10-year Treasury note yield back above 3.20% (after dipping below 2.90% on Monday). «Read the rest of this article»

Disneyland had nothin’ on Grandpa’s barn. Nothing.
If you were 10 years old, like me and my cousin Randy were, you could have happily spent several years of your life trapped in that barn, if only “they’d” have let you.
Who needs school or food or a stupid pool when you have a barn like Grandpa’s to mess around in?
Everything a kid could have ever wanted was in that barn. Cowboy hats, a tractor, tractor parts, tractor tires, car tires, truck tires, snow tires, and various inexplicable farm equipment parts were all scattered around the place like toaster crumbs.
What to us were dusty, old pirate chests were filled with every kind of undiscovered treasure: old clothes, magazines from the 1920’s, faded photos of ancient strangers, milk crates of unused Polaroid camera film, masking taped board games, a war helmet, some rubber boots, a box of bolts. «Read the rest of this article»
