Letters to the Editor

Come see Walter Bradley Park Editor, The Sun: Spring is such a welcome season! And brings great appreciation for the Walter Bradley Park in Midway. Walks by the creek, native plants and trees flowering, Osage limbs and branches reaching out, and an open meadow with wild flowers poking their heads up add so much to the quality of life in our little town. And this all does not happen without planning and much hard work. So, our thanks go out to the Park Board led by Cecilia Gass and, especially, to John Holloway, volunteer park manager and co-worker, Patty Holloway. Almost every day, you will find them clearing brush, mulching trails and adding gravel so that we are not sloshing through mud as we walk the beautiful trails. And the Midway city workers are not to be forgotten as they support the park with their efforts. Mayor Vandegrift and the city council have had the vision to support the Park Board’s work. We invite you to visit our park, perhaps sit on a bench in quiet reflection and think of all those who make it possible.

New Woodford Club owners praise community Editor, The Sun: Over the past few weeks, we have been privileged to experience the best of Woodford County. When faced with the loss of a longtime fixture in our community – Moss Hill Golf Course, which was founded as Woodford Hills Country Club in 1967 – local residents stepped up to the plate to assist us as we work to quickly reopen the facility. Both of our families have had a long-standing relationship with the club and, like so many others, were distressed by the news of its closing. Through a whirlwind of events over the last few weeks, including securing fast-tracked financing with Citizens Commerce National Bank, we plan to close on the club property this week and begin golf play as soon as the course is ready. We have been fortunate to arrange for a number of key former staff members to rejoin the ranks. These folks have a long-standing allegiance to the course and are dedicated to the success of the club. Without them and the community-at-large this torch would not be burning as brightly! Spring is here, so we are trying to open as quickly as possible so golfers can get playing. The public can stay updated on our progress at The Woodford Club Facebook page or at www.thewoodforclub.com. Next week’s issue of the Woodford Sun will contain ads announcing golf and social/pool memberships, specials and more. We have much work to do, but we wanted to take a minute to lift up the people of Woodford County for their enthusiastic support of our venture. Not every community would cheer us on, offer advice and suggestions, provide news coverage and professional support . . . and just be so positive about this new venture. “Uniquely Woodford” indeed! Randy and Sue Clay Chet and Kim Blackey
