Long Hot Summer

It certainly looks to be a Long Hot Summer as Keith Urban once put it. With temps closing in on 90 every day for the past week and with the same on the forecast, that is certainly a true-looking statement. It certainly makes for a lot of hot hours in the sun for the things I have been covering (and a lot of cool hours in the air-conditioned office too).

Last week I covered legion baseball, as they trekked through a 6-2 busy week. I also wound up at the Willow City 125th celebration where I snapped some pictures from the parade.

I have no ambition (once again) to write up an opinion this week, and nothing really to write about, so without further ado, pictures:

Bottineau's Hunter Braaten slaps a base hit last Thursday against Cando in Bottineau.

Braaten, who also pitched in the game, about to toss a pitch.

Second baseman Devin Bercier tries to turn a double play in the first game of a doubleheader.

Bercier tags out Cando's Jake Hagler as he tries to steal second. The throw from Mark LaCroix was right on the money.

Bottineau shortstop Andrew Hill about to make a throw on the run.

Main Street in Willow City was lined with people as the parade starts.

Joyce tosses candy and goodies from the bucket of this old tractor.

This little girl waves to parade goers during Willow City's 125th birthday parade.

Blake Rosencrans gathers up more candy during the parade last Saturday.

Morgan Klebe plays the guitar on a float last Saturday.
