PINE PLAINS — Putting one foot in front of the other, runners in the 10th annual Erin Shanley Memorial 5K Race made their way around a hot and sticky race course on Sunday morning, Aug. 18. Temperatures reached the low 90s.

More than 85 runners raised more than $5,700, with a $10 registration fee for the 5K, a $5 registration fee for a 1-mile race and a $5 charge for the pancake breakfast that followed. All proceeds were donated to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The tally exceeds last year’s total of $5,000.

Trade War of another sort

As of this moment, the Major League trade deadline has come and gone. Thank heavens! Though much thought about, talked about, and anticipated, it is not a high point of my bleacher view of the season. If anything, quite the reverse.

Shortstop logic

Here is a logical construction that they don’t teach in Philosophy 101: All right handed power hitters hate shortstops.
I was a right handed power hitter.
I hate shortstops.
With a vengeance.
You see, back in the day, power hitters were supposed to pull the ball all the time; it’s where you got your power. Doubles were acceptable; home runs were expected. So, we power guys would hit up on the ball a la Ted Williams and look to the fences.

No relief in sight

From what I can gather, we have been spending about $3.5 billion dollars a year on over the counter heartburn relief.
