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.

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. A Miami-Dade animal welfare officer, he's been designated an essential worker doing a job that, in normal times, is fraught with risk.
