The final chapter of the film isn’t set to hit theaters until May 2019, and the filmmakers faced a task familiar to writers of franchises going back to “Star Wars”: How do you plot out the penultimate film in a series so that you both satisfy audiences of the current film and make them want to return for more? We spoke to the screenwriters behind “Infinity War,” “The Empire Strikes Back” and other series, and asked them how they approached writing the film before the one that brings a story to a close.

CUMBERLAND – Because Lincoln’s finest had manufactured quite the lead in the top of the first inning, then tacked on a few more runs in the second, J.T. Snodgrass strolled to the plate at Garvin Field with a vengeance in the back half of the frame.After all, he’s a Cumberland kid who doesn’t like to lose. He knows all about the rivalry between the two towns, and would NOT be denied.Following a couple of “feel-him-out” pitches, Snodgrass ripped a hard grounder to short and beat it out for a hit. Teammate Hope Fitzgerald followed suit with another infield single, and 12-year-old Jonathan Leddy knocked what looked like a foul ball down the third-base stripe, though it was ruled a hit. The bags loaded, Connor Lizotte – call him the wily veteran of the Cumberland lineup – then wheeled up to the left-handed batter’s box. Bothered little by the tense situation, the 17-year-old CHS junior eyed each pitch carefully, and – … [Read more...] about Cumberland Challenger Division kids love to Play Ball!

PHOENIX (AP) — Tens of thousands of Arizona teachers are poised to walk off the job this week to demand more funding for public education, an unprecedented action in this conservative state without many union protections.Educators who are among the lowest-paid in the U.S. have organized weeks of protests seeking raises and a boost in overall school funding, culminating in a vote for the first-ever statewide strike.It comes despite a plan from Republican Gov. Doug Ducey to increase teacher pay 20 percent by 2020. Teachers are concerned about a lack of stable funding and a failure to address other demands. A grass-roots teachers group mobilized the #RedforEd campaign, with backing from the Arizona Education Association, the largest teacher membership group.
