  • As you read this I will have returned from my vacation at the beach, having returned to deadlines and ringing phones and not enough hours in the day and probably too much caffeine and not enough exercise and sleep.

    But today, as I write this, I’m still on vacation, watching the gulf waters crash rhythmically on the shore. I’ve been out here, sitting on the sand, not exactly comfortable but transfixed on the vastness of the green-gray water in front of me.

  • General Butler State Resort Park will host a Pickleball Workshop from 10 a.m. to noon, Saturday, Oct. 4 at the tennis courts next to the lodge. Tom and Linda Irwin from Lawrenceburg, Ind., will be the instructors. The program is designed for adults. Cost is $3 per person.

    Pickleball is the fastest growing sport in communities in the Southwest and Southern states. The sport puts less stress on the body than activities such as tennis or racketball.
