first_imgIf they are not already off for the summer, most students will be in the next few days. Today, for the older ones, that means a summer job interrupted by many workouts for those playing sports. For the younger ones, it probably means day care or summer camps or babysitters. In the olden days, it meant a summer with mom if you were younger with a lot of make-believe fun. For a lot of us older kids, it meant working on the farm. Today the family farm is gone, and in many instances the mother has a job. It is a shame that those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer are not as lazy as they used to be. When I was in high school, I played Legion baseball and worked on our family farm. Since my dad had a business as well as the farm, I split my time doing chores at both of the enterprises. If there are any three-sport students out there they will not have time to work, because their summer will be filled with games and/or contests. I thoroughly enjoyed those years, because they were care free and a lot of fun. Even though my work was hard, I was young and handled it without much trouble. The evenings were filled with ball games and other fun summer activities. The one thing I am really glad I didn’t have to fight was the temptation of trying drugs. Any place a kid goes today, I am sure the presence of drugs is not far away. Some might call this summer fun, but I call it a temptation that wears our kids down and even some of the good ones fall victim to its lure. It sure would be nice to know the biggest problem our kids would face this summer is sunburn or poison ivy!last_img read more

first_imgNAGPUR, India (CMC) – In-form Bermudian all-rounder Delray Rawlins struck an unbeaten 70 as England Under-19s rattled up 501 for five declared on the second day of their opening four-day Youth Test at the Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium here yesterday.In reply, India closed on 156 for two with Rawlins conceding 14 runs from four overs of left-arm spin.Rawlins, due in at number four, spent most of Monday’s opening day with his pads on as the visitors recovered from losing opener Harry Brook for 21 with the total on 57, to close on 311 for one thanks to centuries from captain Max Holden and number three George Bartlett.Bartlett was the first to go yesterday as he was dismissed for 179 after a second-wicket stand of 321 with Holden, who was fourth out for 170 at 418.But there was no respite for the Indian bowlers as Rawlins – one of six Youth Test newcomers in the England team – weighed in with his unbeaten 70 from 94 balls, including four sixes and five fours before the declaration came after 131.1 overs.Rawlins went into the two-match Test series on the back of some sparkling one-day international form, making 107 not out on debut and also scoring 96 during the five-match series which India won 3-1 after the final game was tied.Rawlins, who is on the books of English county side Sussex, is hoping his form in India will help him break into the first team this summer.His performances in India have not gone unnoticed by his county, who are represented on the tour by assistant coach Jon Lewis, the former England medium pacer, who is the bowling coach for the youngster.“Yeah, I’m lucky enough to have the assistant coach out here as the bowling coach for us, so he’s seeing my performances first hand,” Rawlins said earlier this week.“So I don’t think I’ve done myself any harm in pushing to try and get in the first team this summer.”last_img read more
