Big flag for a big guy


It’s only a bit more than three quarters of a mile, but it may well have seemed longer to Nate Atkins, 10, one of the flag bearers for Boy Scout Troop 14 in the Sarasota Memorial Day parade. To boot, his little brother, Julian, 4, walked the walk with him as did dad, Sid Atkins. The men are Observer kin — the son and grandsons of writer Molly Schechter.
