The Bees added two runs to their advantage in the top of the seventh inning on a solo home run by Jamar Walton (9) and a sacrifice fly by James Skelton to make the score 4-1.

Candidates 'Weaponized' News Article

To the editor:

I was dismayed to see my 2014 news reportage inaccurately weaponized by council members Marc Hain and Brooke Warden in their campaign flier attacking Al Brewer.
