From the Sidelines
Spring training is almost over. The Tonganoxie High School track, baseball and softball teams begin their spring seasons this week.
Standing on the sideline to cheer on one of the local teams is a great excuse for stepping out of the office a couple of minutes early, especially on a sunny spring afternoon.
Check the schedules and I'll see you at the fields next to the fairground and at the track.
