Trump and pointless tariff fatigue

Someone has to tell the president, “Enough with the tariff threats” with U.S. trading partners. Agriculture can’t afford the outcome. I was wading through the he-said, she-said articles this week generated by the prospect of a U.S.-EU bilateral trade deal – President...

Warmer; short-term drier spell on the Plains

Across the Corn Belt, rain is shifting east as a slow-moving cold front clears the region, though cool, showery weather lingers over the Ohio Valley. Drier weather behind the front will allow fields to dry and producers to resume corn and soybean planting; however,...

Sunny 97.7 WMOI

Here's the WMOI/WRAM Athletes of the Week for the week ending April 14th, 2019:

Monmouth-Roseville Titan Athlete of the Week is freshman softball player, Karliegh Ashby. Karleigh had a great hitting week for the Titans. In three games she was 4-for-5 at the plate. Two of those hits were for extra bases. All of this while also throwing most of the innings for the Titan pitching staff as well.

The United Red Storm Athlete of the Week is junior baseball player, Alec Thompson. In a 3-game stretch last week, nobody was as hot at the plate as Alec. He was 5-for-10 and scored three runs. Alec also knocked in five runs and showed the rare combination of speed and power. He ripped two doubles and also stole a pair of bases.

The West Central Heat Athlete of the Week is sophomore baseball player, Jordon Roller. Jordon's bat was on fire last week in four games for the Heat. He was 7-for-11, scoring six runs in the process. He smashed three doubles and even stole a few bases. Jordon even got a break from the tough catching position to pitch six innings as well.

The A-Town Tornado Athlete of the Week is junior baseball player, Nick Inness. Wow, what a day Nick had at the plate in a double header sweep over Peoria Heights. He was 4-for-7 in the two games. Nick scored three runs and totaled three extra base hits, including two doubles and a grand slam home run.

The Galesburg Silver Streak Athlete of the Week is junior boys tennis player, Chris Pamatmat. Chris brought home some hardware from the Pekin Invitational on Saturday. He was a perfect (3-0) at #3 singles. Chris only dropped one set the entire day, defeating two of his opponents in straight sets. As a team, the Silver Streak boys took 3rd place out of eight

Congrats to all of these student-athletes!! Thanks to our AOTW sponsors, MC Sport and More, McDonough Telephone Cooperative (mdtc), Tompkins State Bank and Galesburg Toyota!!

Sunny 97.7 WMOI

Here's the WMOI/WRAM Athletes of the Week for the week ending April 7th, 2019:

The Monmouth-Roseville Titan Athlete of the Week. This week the spotlight shines on junior track and field athlete, Jakob Thomas. Jakob won the shot put event at the highly competitive Lee Calhoun Invitational in Macomb. His toss of 47' 7.5" was good enough to beat all throwers. He also placed 2nd in the discus event with a throw of 135' 9".

The United Red Storm Athlete of the Week is junior long distance runner, Anne Gregory. Anne picked up a couple of top-3 finishes at the Dale Collis Invitational in Galva. She ran the grueling double of the 1600 and 3200 meter races. Anne ran a time of 12:31.43 to win the 3200 meter. This was just after placing 3rd in the 1600 meter run with a time of 5:49.44.

The West Central Heat Athlete of the Week freshman softball player, MacKenzy Ludington. In three Heat wins last week, MacKenzy was a terror at the plate. She batted 6-for-12 and scored five runs. MacKenzy also showed some power, blasting two home runs against Annawan/Wethersfield. She totaled six rbis for the week as well.

The A-Town Tornado Athlete of the Week is sophomore baseball player, T.J. Meyers. T.J. had a great week in four games last week. He was a blistering 6-for-9 at the plate. T.J. scored five and also drove in five runs. Maybe the most amazing stat of the week, he stole eight bases.

The Galesburg Silver Streak Athlete of the Week is senior softball player, Andrea Sampson. In a pair of wins last week, Andrea went 4-for-7 at the plate. Among those four hits was a pair of home runs against Knoxville. She scored five runs and knocked in six runs. Andrea already holds several Galesburg softball program records and signed her letter of intent to continue playing softball at Eastern Illinois University in Charleston in the fall.

Congrats to all of these student-athletes!! Thanks to our AOTW sponsors, MC Sport and More, McDonough Telephone Cooperative (mdtc), Tompkins State Bank and Galesburg Toyota!!
