MOUNT VERNON — An explosion from the ammo dump lit up the pitch-black Vietnam sky like a Fourth of July celebration back in the States.
The always-steamy air smelled of gun powder and stuck to Mike Fitzmaurice and Phil Gaither like rain.
Mitchell Police are investigating a burglary at the Mitchell VFW that took place sometime early Saturday.
The burglar or burglars broke into the business through the back door and forced open an ATM, stealing all the money inside it, according to Post Commander Darwin Buus.
In a tournament where runs allowed and run differential are key tiebreakers, Mitchell White got off to fantastic start Friday morning.
Mitchell beat Brookings Gray 14-0 in the first-round of seeding play at the VFW 13-14 AA state minors baseball tournament at Cadwell Park. The zero runs allowed and plus-14 run differential thus far would seem to put Mitchell in a good position to advance to the quarterfinals, even with a loss in this morning’s second and final seeding game. The top eight of 13 teams advance.
The Mount Vernon 13-13-year-old and 15-16-year-old VFW baseball teams both won two games over the weekend.
