History moving down the road ...

On July 19th, a landmark barn was slowly moved from the spread owned by Terry Buchert to Tom Harty’s place. Several generations of people have grown up with the 30’x60’ barn as a sight recognizable from a long ways off from every direction.

In 1906, Joseph Froslie brought his wife, Anna Peterson, to the sparsely-populated Haakon County area. They homesteaded a spread north of a community that in 1907 would become the city of Philip.

Froslie built and used other out-buildings, but nothing big enough to really do the job.

On the Road Again …

Hi everyone, you're on the Road again with Jim Thompson for the week of June 26, 2006!

###

Just a quick note at the outset, about the Internet. Surely someone somewhere has been worrying about how this country would operate if terrorists sabotaged our Internet. We had just a minor skirmish in that battle with technology over the past weekend which aced out my column and notes for three months of columns. Pssst! Gone … just like that … along with it, the addresses of the nearly four dozen recipients of this weekly missal. Talk about frustrating.

Philip tops 4-Corners at home; loses by 10 on the road

Keep your eye on the ball … Philip's Matt Reckling watches for a pitch to come across the plate in Philip's game against 4-Corners on Thursday, June 16. Philip won 23-17.

The Philip Amateur baseball team came up big, holding off a late inning rally, against 4-Corners, June 16, in Philip.

Philip scored early in what looked to be a big and quick win. Seven runs scored on five hits and one error in the second inning. Getting hits that inning were Chad Ramsey, Brad Heltzel, Jeremy Kerns, Jody Sudbeck, and Joel Spry. Dusty Snyder reached base on an error, Trace O’Connell was hit by a pitch and Matt Reckling walked.

Both teams were hurt by walks in the game, with half of the runners that were walked on both teams coming in to score later in the inning.

A lot of "umph" went into this hit, which looked good for Michael Penticoff of 4-Corners, but it went foul just before the left field post, robbing him of a homerun. Penticoff plays center field for the 4-Corners men's amateur team. They lost to Philip Thursday, but 10-runned them on Sunday.
