Baseball is in the air

It’s summertime and the air is hot and sticky, and baseball is in the air.

The sound of baseballs being batted around is common. The dust of a slide into the bag, the slap of the ball in the mitt all remind us that the Boys of Summer are in peak action.

Looking ahead to summer

High school baseball came to an end for our area last Friday night when Columbia High School Wildcats lost a 2-1 decision to St. Stanislaus.

But the end of the high school season doesn’t mean that there won’t be plenty of action around Marion County this summer.

Itching to play golf

Every year about this time, many folks think about those spring and summer outdoor activities.

There are lots of fishermen and boaters around. I used to have a boat and I enjoy a nice afternoon of fishing now and then, but what I’m really in the mood for is golf.
