The winners of the Steve Hunter Softball Classic were Slow Motion, first place, and DBS, runners-up. There were six teams competing in the tourney. Proceeds from the benefit will go to a memorial in Steve Hunter’s name, possibly a scorer’s bench for the park.

John and Janet Hemmer and William and Jolene Caldemeyer returned Sunday from Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, where they spent several days at the F-100 Family Reunion Truck Show.

They also were happy to renew a friendship with Johnny and Tina Macadoo, Holladay, Tennessee. The Macadoos were friends they knew when they lived in Florida.
