By Ronald Blum   NEW YORK (AP)—Baseball and tears, the ones streaking down cheeks. Tears, the kind leaving rifts between fathers and sons. “Field of Dreams” is about phantoms and phenoms on an unlikely diamond in an Iowa cornfield. Emotions gush like water across the grass, resonating three decades later because of the nerves the movie digs down to reach. “I remember, I think it was the very first test screening we had, it was in the LA area and it was a recruited audience and they didn't know anything about the movie,”...

5/8/2020 3:00:54 PM

By David Ovalle   MIAMI (AP)—As always, Garson Dupuy was out on street patrol this week rounding up strays and responding to reports of vicious dogs or vicious people doing bad things to animals.

If that's the direction we're heading, you have to worry...
