On the crime front, you may have read or heard about the burglars getting their butts busted after a robbery in Rockcastle, but you haven’t read who it was that saw suspicious activity and acted fast to get a description of the felons and their get away car. It just happened to be my brother David and his fearless wife April. Trigg County Sheriff Randy Clark and Deputy Dane Hughes were on the spot real quick and in a hurry and in no time a crime spree was nipped in the bud, as Barney would say. Chalk one up for the good guys!
The Diamond Club Golf Scramble’s was a complete success last week. Nineteen teams punished the course at Lake Barkley State Park. The scores were lower than any I’ve ever witnessed with 23 under par coming in first place. There were several at 20 under par, which will win most any tournament but such was not the case on this day where you needed nothing but birdies and eagles to even be in the running. I noticed while chatting with the players as they came through the concession pavilion that my game has improved since I quit. In a few years I will have been a scratch golfer if only I don’t pick up my sticks and destroy the memories! It’s downright funny how we fail to remember the lost balls and pulled muscles and only recall the lengthy drives and game winning putts.
If you haven’t seen S.K.I.T.’s production of Alice in Wonderland, playing the last two performances this coming weekend in the high school Little Theater, make plans to attend Friday and./ or Saturday night at 7:00. It’s a hoot! Paul Fourshee and company have done an incredible job with stage ware, while Portia Ezell did the same with the directing. Getting 40 people on the right spot saying or singing the right thing at the right time is no small chore, especially when some of the actors are not yet waist high. Also the costumes alone (10 seamstresses I hear) are worth the price of admission; which is only $5 if you mention my name. If they had a concession stand I would go every night!
Trigg County Wildcat Jamey Guinn has signed to play college baseball at Brecia University in Owensboro. Jamey will be an asset on first base. With his height and reach all you need do is throw the ball in his direction and all will be well! Good luck kid, it was a pleasure photographing you through the years, you never let me down when it came to making funny faces or running like a gazelle (or was it a giraffe?).
