[b]Cannons on to State Tourney[/b]

Posted by Nicole
KC will play Thursday August 11th at 7:30 PM (final game of the day) in Mitchell at the State Tourney against Humboldt-Hartford, a very good team from the Cornbelt League, which is the states strongest league. KC did play Humboldt-Hartford during the regular season in 2004, and defeated them 9-2 in a good ball game. According to Coach Herb Sundall, that was a game in which KC played one of their best games of the year defensively, turning three or four double plays. Humboldt was missing a good player or two that night so it will take another fine effort on our part to beat them again; however we certainly know we can compete with them, said Sundall. Should the Cannons win on Thursday, they will play again in the State Tourney at 6:00 PM, Monday. The tourney is single elimination and has a total of 32 teams in the Class B division.

The Cannons record for 2005 is 24-1, 10-0 in league standings, and 22-1 in regular season.

Following the district tournament the teams making the State Tourney are allowed to pick up three players from the district. The Cannons three pick ups are: Nathan Zacher from Wessington-Miller, Chris Konechne from White Lake-Kimball, and Chris Hill from Plankinton.

[b]Kennebec awaits new Post Office[/b]

Residents of Kennebec are still waiting for construction to start on the new Post Office. The townsfolk were informed over a year ago that the Kennebec Post Office was scheduled for replacement.

Postal officials explained the building process to town board members and residents at the public meeting July 2004. Townsfolk were hopeful the old Post Office building would be demolished and removed from Main Street prior to the June 18, 2005 Centennial celebration. That didnt happen.

It was announced in February of 2005 that a building site had been selected. Postal officials determined that the present site of the post office, Lots 12, 13, 14, and 15 of Block 5, Main Street would be the best possible site.

According to John C. Walters, Real Estate Specialist at the Denver Facilities office as of this week bids have not been let on the project. As soon as we have the design completed, we will begin advertising for a contractor, stated Walters. The bid winner will be responsible for the demolition and proper disposal of the old building. Walters indicated it might be another 2 to 3 months before bids are let.

Walters added that a temporary site has been chosen for the Post Office. The old telephone office, located across the street from the present Post Office, will be used.
