Our view: A fitting fall comes to the region

(Continued)

Political signs have cropped up everywhere, as Newburyport and Amesbury prepare for very competitive fall elections. Both cities will have mayoral preliminary elections, and the Newburyport School Committee and City Council races are chock full of candidates. Expect an onslaught of politics through Nov. 5, when races for mayor, City Council and School Committee are settled. All the good and bad that goes with local politics will soon be upon us.

On the sports scene, one can’t help but feel some pennant hope for the Red Sox, particularly after a 20-4 smashing of the Detroit Tigers last week, followed by taking three out of four games from the New York Yankees over the weekend. With the long-awaited return of Clay Buchholz tonight, we can feel some confidence that their successful season thus far will only get better. After Sunday’s sloppy squeaker, we wait to see whether the New England Patriots have the right stuff to stay competitive in the race for the Super Bowl. Whatever happens, it’s clear that people are already excited about the season.

Summer has left us, but fall is looking pretty good.
