Around the county

The warm weather continues! Who would ever think this is the first week in October? My prediction for the coming weeks is once it starts raining again (which we desperately need), it will rain for a looong time! We may need Noah and the Ark! Now, I am not a meteorologist like Tom and Gib, but the above weather forecast is what my gut reaction is telling me. In the meantime, enjoy all of the fall sports without feeling like you are sitting outside at the North Pole!

Congratulations to John Strack who aced the third hole at Adirondack Golf and Country Club with a 5-wood. Mike Maille and Dan Phebus witnessed the exciting event.
