    Young boys and girls interested in golf got the chance to test and improve their skills last week at Lincoln Homestead State Park.

    For some kids, they want to have fun at a friend’s house or an overnight camp, but when they get there they just feel sad or even scared and want to go home. When some kids get homesick, they may feel headaches or stomachaches. It is okay for your child to have homesickness. Talking to your child about being away from home and ways to lessen that homesick feeling is a good idea if your child is wanting to have sleepovers or go to overnight camps.

    He was in my dad’s highest words of praise, “a good man.“

  • Spaulding umpires for the love of the game

    Baseball is a tough and demanding sport, and many are passionate in their love for the game. While some devote their time to playing on the field, others offer their services in other ways, such as coaching and officiating.

    “I’ve been around baseball a long time,” Spalding said.
