Sharon bridge scores April 7

SHARON — There were four full tables for duplicate bridge at Good Neighbors on Low Road in Sharon on March 23. The crowd was reduced because the van at Noble Horizons dared not venture out, fearful of the threatened snowstorm, so we missed some very popular players who could not join us.
We used the Howell Movement instead of the more customary Mitchell Movement due to the small number of players. The average score was 42.

Spring: Now with smaller bugs

Tangled Lines

Trout season opened in New York state Friday, April 1 — and not a moment too soon.
This has been a rough winter. Lots of snow. Lots of gray. Lots of angst. As the winter deepened, the mood of the people disimproved. Then came the tsunami. And Libya. Everybody’s antsy about the economy. I’ve noticed a decided increase in per capita snarling.
So I will be very happy to put on waders and stand in a frigid river, waving a stick around to no apparent purpose. It beats the alternatives.

corya@millertonnews.com

Zumba, the newest exercise craze, might just be the most well-known unknown fitness program in the area.

Started in the 1990s, Zumba has quietly grown into a massively popular class. The most interesting aspect of the program might be that just about everyone who knows what it is has enrolled in a class.
