It’s been some time since I have written, probably somewhere around my dad’s motorcycle accident Sept. 26, 2013. He was in a coma for 4 weeks and had major head trauma, not to mention all the un-mentions!……He is a walking miracle now and back to just about everything he did before, a true inspiration. As if that wasn’t a horrifying 4-month period, it was followed...

Usually it’s a low water fun event, but daily releases from Lake Murray this summer made it even more interesting. Here’s my play by play. Week one in the women’s division Jennifer Weaver...
