Do you live in a Sears & Roebuck kit home?

“My family grew up on the Easthill and I have always loved the structure of homes I rode by on my bike and went trick or treating to on Halloween. But it wasn’t until I was helping my ‘then future husband” purchase a home that I noticed how similar many of the Easthill homes look. In fact, you could say some looked exactly the same? So I went sleuthing…”

Softball Report, June 11 » Eastside Hill Nightcrawlers: 14, Scheel’s Sports: 3

Fresh off a demoralizing defeat last week, the Eastside Hill Nightcrawlers stormed back on Tuesday night with an evening of unstoppable defense and a stinging offensive attack. Defensively, the night was filled with solid execution, making even the most difficult plays seem routine. Phil Garvey and Doug Loechner-Wright put in a strong effort at third and short, respectively, and Kasey Schmidt made several plays at second base, including two very-near double plays. Kelly Frasier took on firstbasewoman duties again, and rounded out what is quickly becoming a formidable Nightcrawler infield. With Ken Symanski on the mound, the Nightcrawlers held Scheels’ Sports to just three runs over six innings.

The Nightcrawlers laid down another night of spectacular defense to hold Valleybrook Church to just 11 runs on Tuesday. Phil Garvey had a banner night at third base, stopping nearly a dozen ground balls at the hot corner and making several unassisted putouts. In the ultimate sacrifice for his team, Andy Plank laid his finger on the line in stopping a groundball at shortstop. Plank left the game with a demolished and broken middle finger. “I’m still upset that I missed the play at first base after it happened!” Plank remarked, “I guess maybe the fact that I heard something snap should justify the long throw, but I would’ve felt better had I thrown the guy out after breaking my finger. There’s always next time I guess.”

June 16 » Hastings Way Reconstruction Workshop

The Hastings Way reconstruction project could very well be one of the most important issues facing the Eastside Hill in years. This is our chance to fix that giant concrete river bordering the neighborhood, dividing us from the businesses on the other side, creating an intimidating and dangerous rift, inhospitable to pedestrian and bike traffic. Wednesday, June 16, at Regis High School.

Softball Report, June 1 & June 8 » A lose and a win

Nightcrawler fans everywhere may have missed last week’s installment of our weekly updates. This was not because there was no game. Far from it. Once again, our liberal media took a vacation and failed to report the real news. That’s right. Sportswriter Joe Thielen, a self-described liberal (who recently admitted to thoroughly ‘appreciating’ the writings of Friedrich Engels) took a five day vacation immediately following last week’s game. Mr. Thielen has missed several key stories in the past, but, as a member of the “drive-by media,” promises to make it up to you when he has news he actually wants to report.
