One out away from history, a looping fly ball deflected off the glove of a sliding Zach Britton in right field for the first and only hit of the game for the Bears. Story Links In the bottom half, Danny Oriente drew a four-pitch walk to lead off the inning and Trey Leonard came off the bench to steal second. After a strikeout, Drew Campbell beat out a soft groundball to first, moving the winning run 90 feet closer. A fly to left wasn’t deep enough to bring Leonard home from third, but Lavey delivered the two-out winner with a clean single to right to close out the doubleheader sweep. Brown threatened in its half of the 10th, drawing a leadoff walk and bunting the runner into scoring position. A two-out walk put two on, but Jared Poland extinguished the fire inducing a flyout to right to end the inning. Live Stats PDF Box Score (Game Two) last_img

RESOLUTIONS OUR POLITICIANS WON’T KEEP

first_imgCelebrating the holidays with friends and family the past few weeks was great, but I m tired, bloated and crabby.The New Year is upon us! What a great opportunity to start fresh and resolve to do great things in 2019.How about I share some resolutions I hope our political leaders will keep. Here s one: Federal government, please stop spending so much!Spending is certainly out of control. Federal debt is up nearly $1.4 trillion the past year. That’s nearly $11,000 in debt per American household – nearly $4,200 per person. And as interest rates rise, the payments on our debt are skyrocketing.I’ll tell you what else is skyrocketing: my family s health insurance premiums. My deductibles are so high, we’ll end up in the poorhouse if any of us gets sick. Hey, Democrats and Republicans, can you resolve to come up with a bipartisan solution for the massive cost of health insurance?Regrettably, such reforms are not likely to occur. There is a growing chasm between Republicans and Democrats. As Republicans hope to undo Obamacare in the courts, more Democrats are supporting a single-payer government program. As more families suffer from high premiums and high deductibles, more Americans, according to Bloomberg, are warming to a Medicare for All concept.They are?Bloomberg says a Kaiser Family Foundation survey found last March that 59 percent of Americans favor the Medicare for All concept. Even when it was defined as a single-payer, federal program, 53 percent favored it. Some 75 percent favor a Medicare for All option if it lets people who have coverage keep their plans.The way Obamacare allowed people to keep their plans? OK, if it’s unrealistic for our political leaders to spend less and improve health care, can they at least resolve to improve our public discourse?Everyone has been hoping for that. Trump s supporters wish he would cool it with some of his tweets and his opponents are throwing around some heated language, too. With divided government in 2019, it appears discourse is going to get worse, not better.Look, so much is at stake. We want our political leaders to work with each other to address our problems. We want them to end this silly government shutdown. Don t all of us, Republicans and Democrats alike, want them to knock off the nasty politics and address our spending, health care, infrastructure, and immigration reform challenges?I wish that were the case. USA Today reports that the only thing all Americans can agree upon is that our country is incredibly divided. Our politicians reflect our division. Again, look at health care. Republicans want market-based reforms that they hope will drive insurance premiums down. Democrats want the polar opposite: more government control. Or look at the Trump investigations. A majority of Republicans want them to end, but a majority of Democrats want the incoming House-majority Democrats to investigate more! Government gridlock, here we come!For goodness’ sake!It’s a bit odd that so many Americans are so unhappy about so many things when a lot of things are going very well for our country. The economy is doing well. Wages are rising. Sure, we’ve got challenges, but its too bad we can t count some of our blessings as we address them.Sure, were blessed, but after chatting with you I feel even more tired, bloated and crabby.FOOTNOTE: TThis article was posted by the City-County Observer without bias, opinion or editing.–FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailShare RESOLUTIONS OUR POLITICIANS WON’T KEEPby Tom Purcell, January 1, 2019last_img

Mayor’s Update 11/10

first_imgDear Friends,On Monday, I announced the appointment of Jim Smith as our new fire chief. Jim has risen through the ranks of the Ocean City Fire Department in his 22-year career here, and he brings both local knowledge and firefighting expertise to the job. He and his wife, Kate, and their children are long-time members of the local community. I look forward to working with him in the years to come, and I’d like you all to join me in congratulating Jim and wishing him well in his new position.I’d also like to congratulate the winners in Tuesday’s election and thank all of the candidates and voters for participating in the process. Greg Whelan, Tiffany Prettyman and Dale Braun will serve on the Ocean City Board of Education. I look forward to working with Gerald Thornton and Ocean City’s own Marie Hayes on the Cape May County Board of Chosen Freeholders. Frank LoBiondo won re-election to the U.S. House of Representatives, and I’m glad to see that Ocean City will continue to have a strong advocate in Washington, D.C.Now that the elections are over, I think it’s important for everybody to work together toward common goals. Six years ago, I ran on a platform of  “Unity in the Community,” and I believe that notion is just as important today and at all levels of government.I’d like to remind everybody that Ocean City’s annual Veterans Day program will be held tomorrow (Friday, Nov. 11) at 11 a.m. inside the Ocean City Tabernacle across from Veterans Memorial Park. The community’s support of veterans has always been strong and inspiring, and I urge you all to attend.Warm regards,Jay A.
