Sports park discussion nears; will it get enough support?

OK. I’m sold. After talking with parents, officials of programs like AYSO, Davis Youth Softball Association and local Little League, and a handful of grandmas and grandpas, I’ve decided that putting a new sports park in town is a good idea. Almost a decade ago, the city of Davis brain trust unveiled the idea for […]

It was a pretty exciting playoff: It took David Lingmerth three extra holes to dispatch Justin Rose in last weekend’s Memorial at Muirfield Village in Ohio. Let’s see … I know about Justin Rose.
