  • Waldie golf champion

    TELL CITY—Kevin Waldie of Hawesville, Ky., shot an even-par 140 to win the Schweizer Fest Golf Open by one stroke last weekend.

    Waldie, a former Brescia University golfer, shot a 72 in the first round Saturday but cut that to 68 Sunday to edge five-time champion John Stiles by one stroke.

    Three other former champions, Michael Daum, Mark Flannagan and Erik Lassaline, each shot 142.

    Lassaline, last year’s champion, shot a 69 Saturday despite not being pleased with his putting. “If I’d putted well, I could have shot a 63,” he said.

    TROY - This is a really fun year to work on the Tell City Marching Marksmen's show, Davey Hebeisen said July 31 at a kickoff party for the upcoming season.

    His description of the show, and the excitement in his voice as he described it, will be the last memory students have of the 1988 TCHS graduate who lived in San Francisco, but made frequent trips to help the band he loved.

    He died of an aneurism two days after the kickoff.
