A Royal All-Star Game

by Dave Bradley

If the Major League All-Star Game voting would end right now, the start of the contest on July 14 in Cincinnati would basically be Kansas City versus the National League.
That’s because the Royals would have eight players in the starting lineup. Wait, what?
I remember a couple years ago when Alex Gordon got selected to the big event, and how exciting that was for all Royals fans after suffering through so many consecutive losing seasons. It was something to hang your hat on.
And it was fun back in the 70s and 80s when this franchise was a powerhouse, making the playoffs and finally winning the World Series in 1985. George Brett, the Royals’ third basemen, was one of the greatest hitters of all time. Centerfielder Willie Wilson could run like the wind.

New place, new schools, same sports

by Richard Rhoden

It’s a saying that I’ve heard a lot of people say over the years, and it’s really started to come true.
The more things change, the more things stay the same.
I’m the new guy here in Aurora at the newspaper. I started here about a month ago, and it seems like everything in my life has changed in that last month.
New apartment, new town, new faces to work with.
But the familiarities stay the same, and some of those old faces show up again.
It’s still a newspaper, which I put together in college, it’s still a lot of sports coverage, which I did all of at Wayne State, and faces that I haven’t seen for years all of a sudden show up again.
