Sunday morning's headlines

Good morning, it’s Sunday, July 6. (Dang it, I just had to carry on the tradition…)

The sun is shining, and we’re celebrating a long holiday weekend full of joys, challenges and some heartache. The pages of the Bradenton Herald capture some of that today: a slice of history recorded from the Cortez Family Reunion, a whodunit in a cold-case story by Natalie Nesa Alund, and a good ol’whistle-stop campaign in Parrish.

There’s developing news on the salmonella front, and Jessica Klipa came in on her day off to report on the latest suspects and growing frustration for many of our farmers. County reporter Nick Azzara delved further into Manatee County’s efforts to make development pay for itself and the struggle with impact fees.

And, yes, thank goodness, there’s baseball. I promised a Letter from the Editor about our love of the game and growing love of the Rays. And we woke up to another winning score from baseball’s No. 1 team. Added bonuses: The Cards won 5-4 in the bottom of the ninth and my brother was there to celebrate, and the Brewers edged the Pirates 2-1 in another cliffhanger.

We’re nipping at your heels, Cubbies!
