Though summer is over, golf season is not. North Hills had a large turnout on Wednesday as a group of Warren County players were on hand, about 40 senior guys.

That included former Youngsville American Legion coach Terry Jackson, now 74 years young. He's a PIAA softball umpire and has now done 15 playoff games. Also playing that day was retired pharmacist Bill Mancino who said he's played over 20 area courses this season. And like many of us, he's looking forward to playing as the leaves change colors.

Today is the "Good To be Alive" Tournament sponsored by the Corry Fire Department with 100 players.

Glenn and Muff Smith said they golfed there last year on Nov. 7. So perhaps there's still some good golfing left.

Best wishes to Father Skip Davis who served his final Mass yesterday at St. Thomas the Apostle Church.

Roger Weeks is back refereeing basketball games. He did the girls middle school games the other day in Youngsville.

The Tri-County Snowblazers are having a fall gun raffle at the Corry VFW on Oct. 23 with 20 prizes plus raffles food and beverage. The cost is $10 a ticket or three for $20. Their car show and bonfire is today. 

I'm late posting this but it was great to see Jack "The Union City Icon" Croston and Joe Malec at Country Meadows Golf Course.

Sympathy to the families and friends of Sandy Utegg and Dorothy Stewart. And to Patsy Nichols on the loss of her son Bill.

Nice to see Bruce Fuller out with his family at the VFW.

The Food Truck Festival is next Saturday from 2-9 p.m. at North Hills Golf Course, sponsored by the Corry Young Professional Network. It could be interesting.

Happy 98th birthday yesterday to Bernie Ross. We all miss seeing him at the VFW.

Birthday wishes today to Danielle Marie Wood, Dale Henderson and Mary Kay Zimmer, tomorrow to Cheryl Holton Utegg, Georgia Hawkins and Kay Black and Monday to Lynell Webster Piccirillo (she's married to Carmen, who is Chris Hornick's brother) and to Lisa Cox. Belated 90th birthday to Heidi Long's mom Virginia.

Hard to believe it, but bus driver Barb Rogers, who has been driving since April of 1968 — that's 53-plus years, is retiring.

Dan Gates tells me that his niece Jody Burrows has accepted a basketball coaching position with a women's college team (Bates) in Maine. So she'll be relocating from California (what a change in weather).

Thanks to Julie Maloney, we got our booster shots on Thursday, just as easy as before.
