Not horsing around: Rodeo is serious business for Presley
In a lifetime spent around the rodeo, Dalton native Travis Presley has seen it from just about every angle — as a spectator, a competitor, a showman, an equipment and livestock supplier and an organizer.
Chatsworth's Mitchell picks up confidence-boosting victory
Two good rounds of golf and a tournament victory secured some momentum for Chatsworth’s Tyler Mitchell as he prepares for this week’s Georgia Amateur Championship.
Loran Smith: Perry's honors matched by his stories
Gaylord Perry is everything you expect a small-town, retired big leaguer to be. Hospitable, entertaining and without any trace of arrogance, Perry is a guy who has been honored about as much as any dominating pitcher who played the game.
Dolphins win on road
The Dalton Dolphins picked up a road win as they beat Stuart Heights 413-337 in a Chattanooga Area Swim League (CASL) meet on Monday night.
The main attraction
In 2008, David Noll Jr. beat the tournament record at the Georgia Amateur Championship at Idle Hour Club in Macon.
No one remembers.
A Look Ahead: Slowing down
Softball is for girls. And slow-pitch softball is for factory workers with a cooler of cold beer and bellies hanging over their shorts.
OK, maybe that isn’t really true.
And to prove it, Dalton and Heritage Point Park will once again serve as the host location for the Southern Softball Association of America’s 2014 Boys World Series beginning on Thursday. This will be the second year in a row that Heritage Point has hosted the event as 59 teams played in the tournament last year.
Todd leaving DHS swim after 16 years
Throughout his 17 years with the Carpet Capital Aquatic Club and his 16 years with the Dalton High and Dalton Middle School swim programs, Charles Todd has received looks and offers from other areas.
But with his youngest child Chase still in school and his wife playing a major role in the Whitfield County Division of Family and Children Services, Todd wasn’t looking to make a move.
Bringing in the best
When high school football coaches look for events to take their teams to during the summer, they are looking for three things — top competition, organization and hospitality.
For The Daily Citizen’s Southeastern 7-on-7 Championship, the Dalton community and local business leaders take care of the latter. The tournament officials work tirelessly to provide the organization. And the two combined assure the top competition will show up.
Tom Lindley: US soccer pushed by its fanbase
The 2014 World Cup is over for America after the United States was knocked out in the Round of 16 by Belgium, 2-1, in a match with extra time that was intoxicating and crushing.
The U.S. team was oh so close. That’s how sports go: One day you’re fighting for victory, the next you belong to history.
But, despite goalkeeper Tim Howard’s remarkable performance, the game perhaps will be remembered not so much as a loss but for what it did for the future of the sport back home.
Showing off their guns
Mike Smith says bodybuilding was something he always wanted to try. But like a lot of guys with projects they would like to try — working on that automobile project, building a new deck, finally pressure washing the house — something always seemed to get in the way.
Whether it was work, family or any other little thing, something always kept him from pursuing his goal.
