Rock Port golfers engaged in a flag tournament at the city park course last Sunday, with a large contingent of turf diggers participating in the fun. Top honors went to Sammy Bennington, with Clyde Warren finishing second and Frank Heyen third. Golf balls were awarded to the winners. The local course has never been in better condition, thanks to the energy of Ed Townsend, caretaker. One thing about golf play this season: If a player drives a ball into the rough, it looks as though everyone on the course helps look for the little pellet, for they are almost as hard to get as a new car tire and no one likes to lose one or quit hunting for it as long as there is a chance to find it.

Rock Port has a new business, well, an expanding business and change of name. Ted and Sam Harmon have purchased This ‘N That Gifts and Flowers from Blake and Julie Hurst. The new venture will be managed and operated by Lyndia Schomburg. The new name will be Clay Pot Flowers and Antiques. Lyndia as a manager/designer went to market last week and tells us that they will be adding Mikasa crystal, potpourri, candles, Mother Goose dolls, baskets, Twig furniture and new dried flowers. They plan to continue the bridal registry and efficient service the many customers have grown to expect and appreciate. Plans to expand and offer a fine selection of antiques and primitives in the near future will offer something for everyone.
