It is with my deepest sympathy that I share the news of John Toth’s death. John was appropriately 67 years old and died after a heart attack today. 
John had a history of some heart problems and had a heart attack about 6 years ago then came back and played several more years. John played in the American League  (Sosesbees, Bojangles, ElRanchero, and Bedoe’s Bar & Grille) from approximately 2004-2015 as a shortstop, 2B, and pitcher. 
Please include John and his family in your prayers.
Thank You, Gary Bedoe

League Directors, please let you coaches know about this. We must maintain a good working relationship with CRPA

Good morning. I went out to Hobgood yesterday and there was a group of seniors out there having batting practice. The fields are closed until further notice due to maintenance being completed. Please remind your players the fields are close and no one if allowed to be on the fields.

Thank you,

Camille Thomas, CYSA
Athletic Coordinator

Mike and his family in need of privacy as the mourn the loss of a loved family member.
Olga Woltering and her husband, Ralph, are from Marietta, Georgia. The couple flew into Fort Lauderdale for a cruise with their children, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Ralph wasn’t injured in the shooting, but Olga was killed. The cruise was to celebrate Ralph’s 90th birthday, said fellow churchgoer Dan Blankowski.
The couple were involved members of Transfiguration Catholic Church since they joined in 1978, he said, and regularly front seat attendees to 5 p.m. Mass.

If I get more information I will pass it on.
