-Ogdensburg native Mindy Lawton got a mention in the Boston Herald, although the media blackout in her hometown continues. What is hard to believe in this story is how a 32 year old having an affair with a married man could retractively claimed such naivete.
-An inspiring game by tiny Butler college last night in almost winning the National Championship....losing to Duke by just 2 points.
-Critics say he threw the first pitch like a girl, but I can sympathize with President Obama's arcing floater of a first pitch at the Nationals home opener. In front of the crowd, something as natural as throwing a ball a short distance becomes nerve wracking...not because he isn't used to crowds, but its a guy thing.... So worried about not making the plate, you look worse with the high trajectory and a moment saved by an agile catcher able to catch the errant orb.
Some of the older readers may have been reminded of the Yankee lefty reliever Steve Hamilton, who would occasionally throw the "folly floater". Surely the President as a child may have seen Hamilton throw the pitch to the White Sox.
-Retiring Fire Chief Milt Sayre received a standing O at Mondays City Council meeting as he was honored with a First Citizen award for his 35 years of service to the Department.
-While I was at the Council meeting, Patty Ritchie reportedly visited Pearl Street to consult with bartender Diana. Meanwhile, I will report.....wait, I am not a reporter....I will share my impressions of the Doheny announcement for Congress which is Wednesday morning. While not invited per se, I will go as a political tourist just to see what's happening. Yes, we will be checking out the "optics" of the 9AM event.
