We arose early to beat the oppressive August heat and humidity, strapped on our bike helmets, and headed out for a quick loop before breakfast. As it turned out, the early morning departure wasn’t necessary to beat the heat.

NEW HAVEN — Over the course of two evenings last week at the Addison County Fair and Field Days, twisted metal, shredded rubber and a few puddles of flaming gasoline covered the dirt track at the No. 1 Auto Parts Demolition Derby.

The longstanding attraction on the tractor pad at the fair brought its share of thrills, dust, noise and, in the end, confusion and outrage when two-time state champion Justin Bolster walked away with the grand prize at the end of Thursday night’s big feature.

Karl Lindholm: 'A-ha! moments' and The Cuban Giants

It was interesting work, but something of needle-in-the-haystack research. I was looking for the earliest references to baseball in the Register.
