If the old adage “the pen is mightier than the sword” is true, and I am a samurai wordsmith, I should do the honorable thing and fall upon my pen. Bear with me kind and most forgiving readers as I make amends to the nice folks at the Complex. A short time back, after another cold and wet week, I made some less than complementary remarks about our local recreation center. Truth be told, I was a little peeved at the whole world as I had just filled my truck with expensive gasoline. I shall have some strong words about the powers that be in that arena in a future rant and I won’t be apologetic a few days later! Tuesday last found your loyal but sometimes dim-witted scribe standing in line at the concession stand waiting for a couple of the best hot dogs this side of Coney Island and I noticed sounds of laughter all around me. I looked over freshly mowed (and weed eaten) grass to the outdoor horse arena where fathers were having practice with what looked like 6 or 7 year old kids. There were games going on in every field with moms, dads, aunts, uncles, and grandparents cheering for all they were worth for the soon to be mighty boys and girls of baseball. I thought back to my ink wasting rant and cringed. What a creep! Who on this green earth could find something negative in this scene! My apologies to everyone associated with the Complex. I now want to join the bandwagon for expanding! It needs to be bigger. It’s in the perfect place and all it needs is a name change with a beautiful handmade tasteful sign by the road. “Trigg County Recreation Center” or pick a person who had much to do with what Cadiz is today and honor their name. In any event, I will do my part in any project that betters an already great place. One more thing before I verbally take you to Dawson Springs, the concession stand at the Complex was officially ranked #2 in state just behind said Dawson Springs, only because of the chili nachos offered there, but now has firmly taken the lead with cups of ice and a superior hot dog.For the rest of this story, read this week's Cadiz Record.
