Ryan Newman Wins At Loudon
First of all, much love to Elshivia Segal for hooking us up with this shot of the F-16s about to do the flyover for the Lenox 301 at Loudon. She's about a half hour from there.
Summertime and the livin’ is easy
Call Him Bret, And He's No Threat
He's not our problem and won't become our problem, but I just thought that I'd mention that a tropical storm is forming off the SE US coast. We're nautical-type people here on the Cape, and we're supposed to be aware of stuff like this.
Red Sox 9, Tampa Bay 5
The Boston Red Sox evened up their series with the Tampa Bay Rays yesterday by administering a 9-5 beating on the Floridians.
Boston had home runs hit by Josh Reddick, Dustin Pedroia and Jacoby Ellsbury. Boston has hit 7 home runs in the last 2 games against Tampa.
John Lackey struck out 7 to improve to 7-8, 6.70. The Sox roughed up All Star pitcher Jamie Shields, who ended the day 8-8, 2.60.
She Hits Things
The Mashpee police department is moving to get a dangerous elderly driver off the road, after the Demolition Derby came early to Mashpee.
Violet Slate, which is a cool name, was involved in a terrific accident Friday that saw her hit 3 vehicles and a supermarket.
No one was injured in the incident at Roche Brothers, although the building suffered substantial damage.
Tampa Bay 9, Boston 6
The Boston Red Sox started the second half of the season not with a bang, but a whimper. The Tampa Bay Rays handled us, 9-6.
The Rays bashed a grand slam (by Ben Zobrist) off Sox starter Andrew Miller. Miller gave up 5 hits and 7 runs to end up at 3-1, 5.68. Taylor Price, who gave up Derek Jeter's 3000th hit, improved to 9-7.
I'm typically a pretty ardent pincher of the pennies when it comes to our local government's finances, particularly in these austere times. Our local balance sheet, to remain healthy, needs to contain a mix of limited spending and hearty revenues. Keeping our town's fiscal health robust is, in its simplest terms, a combination of those two.
