Sadorus may replace scoreboard

SADORUS — Village officials are discussing replacing the scoreboard at Sadorus Community Park's ball diamonds.

Village Trustee Jim Thompson, who heads up the village board's parks committee, told fellow board members this week that the scoreboard's motherboard is not working. Because the scoreboard is over 30 years old, replacement parts can't be found, according to Thompson.

A new scoreboard will likely cost about $4,000, Thompson said. One that will fit on the existing poles is being sought, he added.

Village President John Deedrick suggested paying for the new scoreboard through the Donald Messman Trust, which was established in part to improve the park's ball diamonds.

"You could even put his name on it," Deedrick said.

There is almost $21,000 in that account.

The last game of the season at the ballfields will be played on July 19.

I can imagine a certain cynicism greeting this story, as it was posted on the N-G dot com front page.

 

But I think it's these little things that people want to know. And I think the N-G is correct in thinking the little towns -- second only to the Old Folks -- are its major base.

 

Kudos on the reporting, and to the managing editor.
