Brewers salvage series with win

MILWAUKEE (AP) Jeromy Burnitz couldn't blame the Houston Astros for not respecting him with the game on the line. Still, he made them pay for it.

Burnitz's two-out double in the ninth scored Marquis Grissom and gave the Milwaukee Brewers a 4-3 victory over the Houston Astros on Sunday.

Grissom drew a one-out pinch-hit walk and after James Mouton flied out, Mark Loretta singled off Houston reliever Doug Henry (0-1). Instead of bringing in closer Billy Wagner to face Burnitz, Houston manager Larry Dierker left Henry in the game.

Packers minicamp: Bubba arrives while Freeman and Levens are injured

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) On the roster his name reads "Bubba Franks," but not until Sunday did the real Bubba Franks make an appearance at the Green Bay Packers' minicamp.

Green Bay's first-round draft pick from the University of Miami (Fla.) concluded his first-ever minicamp by impressing the man in charge, coach Mike Sherman.

Expected to start this coming season, or at least play a lot, Franks left little doubt that he will be able to make the transition to the NFL.

The St. James church fire: Disaster, perhaps miracle, happened 57 years ago

Leader correspondent

I was riding my bicycle with Gary Gruetzmacher on Picnic Street, near my home, when the fire whistle blew. It was Saturday, about noon, and the fire whistle and Shawano paper mill whistle always blew to announce the noon hour.

The year was 1943, WWII was still being fought. I was 9 years old at the time. One of the Den girls, a neighbor who had a phone (not too many people had phones back then), hollered out the door that the Lutheran Church was on fire. St. James was the only Lutheran Church in town.
