Week 9 Hmwk
The city council passed an ordinance last night requiring people convicted of their second DUI to spend a minimum of thirty days in jail and to have their drivers license suspended for six months. The ordinance was passed with a vote of 5–3. Councilwoman Clarissa Atwood sponsored the change in law which will take effect on December 31.
“I think this law will save the lives of a lot of people,” Atwood said.
The council chamber was overflowing with people interested in the law. Many of the people there were members of Mothers Against Drunk Driving (M. A. D. D.) One councilman who voted against the law, Les Honeycutt, said he felt laws against drunk driving were strong enough and that they needed to be enforced rigidly. His comments received hoots and jeers from the crowd, the council president, Harley Sanders, threatened to have some of the audience removed.
The Bay City Bluebirds rallied from a 3-run deficit Monday night to defeat the Caramel Cardinals 6–3 and win the Western Tri-State division championship.
The bluebirds are now assured a spot in the Tri-State playoffs that begin next week. Their opponent will be determined tonight in a game between the Santa Ana Generals and the Redwood knights.
The cardinals led the bluebirds for most of the game, and had a 3–0 lead in the eight inning.
In the bluebird half of the eighth, Tim Story, the first baseman, walked and stole second. Left fielder, Biff Carbosi, was walked intentionally. Both runners moved up a base on a wild pitch by cardinal starter, Ronnie Miller. Miller was then relieved by Chuck Nelson.
Bluebird second baseman Carbo Garbey lined Nelson’s first pitch into deep center field, scoring both base runners. Two pitches later Garbey stole home to tie the game.
Nelson got the next two hitters out, but then Carey Clarke, the bluebird catcher, homered to put the bluebirds ahead. The bluebirds added two more runs in the ninth to insure their victory.
