Turnovers … by Alan B. Gibson

Summer season slipping by . . .

It’s hard to believe, but the summer season is slipping by us like greased lightning.

With the arrival of the July 4 holiday this week, the summer season will hit what we consider to be the half-way mark, and before we know it, school will be starting up and we’ll be staring at the Labor Day holiday head-on.

Those of us who are lake enthusiasts have experienced busy traffic this season, especially during the past couple of weeks, and we would be wise to remember to use extreme caution on the lakes and roads this coming weekend when traffic should reach an all-time high – so far – for the season.

With July 4 falling on Thursday this year, many businesses and agencies are also expected to be closed on Friday as well, which means that the upcoming weekend will likely be busier than normal, even for a holiday period.

Sadly, one person has already died this past week in a boating accident on Dale Hollow Lake in Tennessee.

Bottom line – be careful, and be safe.

Local sports scene hits summer slowdown

Not a lot to report on the local sports scene, as is always the case when we move into the July and August months each summer.

C.C.H.S. teams that will be involved in matches and games next are not yet involved in practice sessions officially, with most practice sessions not getting underway until July 15.
