Spring Is Springing

It's the time of year when folks Up North look for a new budding season. Down south we look for a little breathing room, less traffic, fewer lines in stores and restaurants and warm water swimming. And then there's the sport, not of Kings but of the people. Which, it turns out is not always a winning proposition.

The names of the authors of the two stories are Cooke, which resonates when you remember the local daily is owned by Cooke Communications. Baseball is huge among Conchs, the island's undercover passion. It brings out the best among youngsters and sometimes the worst among their over eager parents...I have no sporting pretensions in my blood but I am grateful the paper exists to support the baseball habit among its owners. Sorry they lost, but the front page is still worth reading.
