Giant's 2014

The GIANTS do it again. I waited 59 years to celebrate one World Series now I have three! It was in doubt right up to the final out. Time will tell whether this one will be my favorite. I'm looking forward to Opening Day. Players will have the world series champions patch to wear on their uniforms all year long. It'll be especially nice when they play the Dodgers. They will know they won the division but the Giants won the ultimate prize the World Series. It's hard to believe that one pitcher can basically win you a world championship. For the series Madison Bumgarner pitched 21.0 innings, all other Giant's starters combined for 14.7, simply amazing. This performance puts Madison on this list.

Antioch Restaurant Tour

Kiwanis Club of the Delta proudly presented another Antioch "Pride of the Delta" Restaurant tour last weekend to raise money for children in this community.

They couldn't do it without the help of local restaurants including Starbucks, Celia's Mexican Restaurant, Little Manuels, Skipolini's Pizza, Foster Freeze, Bridgehead Cafe, Scends Deux, Rick's On Second, Kabuki Sushi and Hugo's Place.

This doesn't happen without these two women...
