Ronald Randazzo, said yesterday. "It was my son's responsibility to see they were taking money out of that [pay]check."Mrs. Randazzo received a letter last weekend notifying the family that an Army Inspector General's probe upheld earlier findings that the Army had never received the paperwork.

The team is pumped and ready for it. I think that's the best omen." For four innings, Panthers junior pitcher April Bauerlein (7-3)
