June 16, 2011

LINCOLN — As Max, an orphaned pit bull, used his teeth to rip bark from a tree just outside the Wellington Road shelter, Animal Control Officer Louann Noreau laughed, then uttered, “I think he was a logger in his past life.

This landmark change takes effect for the 2011 summer session, which is currently under way. Gone is the ringing “ping!” sound that ensues whenever an aluminum bat strikes a baseball. Expect to hear a “crack!” at your local Legion ball field, a natural emanation that figures to add great theater to this season.
