On May 15, Mother Nature put a damper on the scheduled softball between Spring River and teams from Jonesorobo and Trumann.
Too wet to play softball, Rick Comer traveled to Poplar Bluff and took part in the fourth annual Ozark Senior Olympics. He entered 17 events and took first place in 14. He had two second-place finishes and one third-place finish for a very successful outing.
Comer has also participated in the Hot Springs and Jonesboro Senior Olympics, taking many first-place finishes.
Other members of the Spring River senior softball team, including Jack Carmon, Joe Bonds, Tony Clemente, Charlie Morgan, Dane Keylon and others, have taken part in the Olympics. The softball players are an active group and invite other seniors to join in the fun.
