That SINKING Feeling

Count New Yorkers among the unwitting victims of the Canadian dollar’s fall: the loonie’s dive has robbed them this summer of the wide-eyed smile of 11-year-old Alyson Yaraskovitch.

Magic in the summertime

The heat is hellish. The thick, steamy air rises to the last row in Vancouver’s Nat Bailey Stadium and hangs over the spot where Harold Hanson and his sister, Ann Brend, are playing cards—row 17, directly above home plate. The 7:05 p.m. baseball game between the Vancouver Canadians and the Tacoma Rainiers of the Pacific Coast League won’t start for another 20 minutes, so Hanson and Brend have brought along their cribbage board and a deck of 52.
