Fishing Rodeo lures kids of all ages to hatchery on June 7


Young anglers 15 years old and under enjoyed a stream stocked with rainbow trout during the June 7 Fishing Rodeo.

On the morning of Saturday, June 7, a total of 2,000 nine-inch rainbow trout and four large display fish were released in the creek below the Dale Hollow National Fish Hatchery for the 11th Annual Kids’ Fishing Rodeo.

Rainbow trout were also stocked into the adjacent Obey River, giving those people not taking part in the fishing rodeo the opportunity to share this important resource on Tennessee’s “Free Fishing Day.”

Held in celebration of National Fishing and Boating Week, the rodeo was open to children aged 15 and under. The event was cosponsored by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and the citizens of Clay County.

It presented a unique opportunity for families to spend quality time together and to connect their children with nature. This year’s event drew a large crowd. Expert face painters Teresa Nevans, Leigh Shaull, and Amy Behr were kept quite busy all morning. Odell Braswell, host of the “Tennessee Sportsman” outdoor television show, which airs on WCTE TV PBS Channel 22, filmed the event. The guest master of ceremonies was Butch Burnette from the Clay County Rescue Squad.

Overall attendance was 225 children and approximately 300 adults. People from as far away as Indiana and Florida made the trip to Celina to get the chance to catch a rainbow trout.

The organizers of the event are very grateful for the continued support of the annual rodeo, and would like to thank all of the businesses and individuals who donated prizes, tackle, bait, drinks, advertising, and effort.

Buzachero earns save in Buffalo victory
A 3-1 road win for the Buffalo Bisons over the Louisville Bats was capped with a save by Edward “Bubbie” Buzachero on Friday, June 20.

The former Livingston Academy Wildcats standout replaced Jensen Lewis in the bottom of the ninth inning and promptly retired Ryan Hanigan on a line out to first baseman Jordan Brown.

Kevin Barker singled a ground ball to left field, and Adam Rosales hit a line drive to center field, moving Barker to second base.

Jerry Gil then lined out to shortstop Andy Gonzalez for the second out.
The Livingston native got the last out when Luis Bolivar hit a fly ball out to right fielder Todd Linden.

The save was Buzachero’s first for the Cleveland Indians Triple-A club. He threw 14 of his 19 pitches in the inning for strikes.

The outing reduced his earned run average to 2.97, fourth best on the team. He also ranks fourth on the team in innings pitched, with 36.1, and ranks second on the team in game appearances, having pitched in 19 games.

Buzachero was used in middle relief in his previous outing on Monday, June 16 when he came in to replace starter David Huff in the fourth inning of a home game against the Durham Bulls, with the game tied 2-2.

The first batter he faced, Chris Richard, lined out to first baseman Andy Gonzalez. He then struck out Hector Giminez swinging.

After walking Andy Cannizaro, Buzachero struck out Nathan Haynes swinging.

After Buffalo went ahead 3-2 in the bottom of the fourth, Buzachero induced Josh Johnson to hit a grounder to third baseman Aaron Herr who threw to first baseman Jordan Brown for the first out in the top of the fifth inning.

The next batter, Fernando Perez, hit a ground ball single into left field. Perez moved to second base on a wild pitch with Elliot Johnson at bat.

Johnson lined out to first base for the second out.

A fielding error by shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera allowed Joel Guzman to reach first base safely and Perez to score a run to tie the game at 3-3.

Dan Johnson drew a walk, moving Guzman to second. With Chris Richard at bat, a passed ball by catcher Armando Camacaro allowed the runners to move up a base. Guzman attempted to run home and Buzachero threw to Camacaro to cut him down at home.

Buzachero was lifted for Rich Rundles for the sixth inning, and Rundles gave up 3 runs and was tagged as the losing pitcher in the 6-3 Durham Bulls win.

Father-son golf tourney held June 21-22
The 29th Annual Wyndham TPGA Father-Son Championship concluded Sunday, June 22 with familiar faces atop the leader board. The 2005 Champions Paul and Wes Korth, both of Cookeville, were all smiles as they captured the title for the second time in four years.

Their two-day point total was 16 points better than any other team in the 185 man field, however, the shootout can change things quickly. The Rowells (Tommy and Tommy II) from Newport represented the Plateau Division for the shootout while the Korths represented the Cumberland Division. The Korths were clicking on all cylinders as they both birdied the first hole of the 3 hole shootout held at Stonehenge Golf Course. The Korths 15 points were good enough to hold off a late charge by the Rowells who finished with 12 points.

In all 185 players competed in the Championship which has been conducted by the Tennessee PGA for the past 29 years. Sponsored by Wyndham Vacation Ownership this event has become a “Tennessee Family Tradition” for many fathers and sons. Two courses (Heatherhurst Golf Club and Stonehenge Golf Course) owned by the Fairfield Glade Property Owners Association hosted the Championship. Teams compete in a Stableford point system whereby awarding points for their scores in relation to par.

At Saturday night’s cookout the finals of the Long drive contest were held with a sudden-death tiebreaker needed to determine the winner of the Wyndham Division. Pat Burk of Crossville had no trouble exhausting the grid as he posted a final drive of 350 yards to win. Scott Hickman, aged 13, won the Red Tee (Glade Division) with a yardage of 238 yards. Ted Chapman won the White Tee (Fairfield Division) with a yardage of 282 yards.
