My Two Cents: The Backstory

 

My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterClarksville, TN – This week I’ve had the privilege of working with a young lady I had never met.  

If you followed our series of articles, “Miscarriage, One Woman’s Story” we brought you the story of Candace Baker and her recent miscarriage.   

Throughout my career, I’ve had the opportunity to tell the real stories of real people and their tragedy and triumph.  Their pain and grief.  Their victory and defeat.   

Hank and Candace meeting for the first time.

Dr. Keith Peterson's statue at Clarksville's Swan Lake Golf CourseClarksville, TN – On a day that would have been perfect for the game that he loved, longtime outstanding golfer and advocate of junior golf in the Clarksville area, the late Dr. Keith Peterson was honored with a statue at Swan Lake Golf Course October 21st.

In a ceremony near the putting green, and preceded by a short address from Clarksville mayor Kim McMillan to a gathering of around 75 friends and family, a bronze statue of a young golfer was unveiled to honor Dr. Peterson, who passed away in May.

“It totally blows my mind and it would his too,” said Peterson’s wife of over 43 years Sally. “He fell in love with this statue when he saw it years ago and he always wanted to get one. So just the statue itself would have been amazing, but to have it near the putting green is perfect because it was his heaven and just a perfect place for him.”

Dr. Keith Peterson's statue was unveiled Wednesday October 21st at Clarksville's Swan Lake Golf Course.

His father Mickey was a great athlete, as was his father George.

Kinda runs in the DNA, huh? «Read the rest of this article»
