Ticket sales

Jonathan McConnell, 10, of Bladenboro buys a raffle ticket from Caleb Sholar, a member of the West Bladen High summer baseball team. The team, which won its third straight state Dixie Pre-Majors championship recently, was selling tickets in front of Melvin’s in downtown Elizabethtown on Friday to raise money for a trip to the World Series next week.
