Reservoir Dogs Disc Golf Club of McComb

The Reservoir Dogs Disc Golf Club of McComb gets some play time in on a chilly Saturday morning at the ONU course.

"Quiet " reads the sign being held at right because it takes great concentration to throw the disc where the competitor wants it to go.

Disc golf can be serious...or not.

Dennis "Doc" Garbrecht was listed in fair condition Saturday evening at Ohio State University Medical Center in Columbus following a fire at his home, 301 E. North Ave., on Thursday morning. His wife, Peg, who was also home at the time, was uninjured.

The fire began in the laundry room, but what ignited the fire has not been determined yet. The two-story home was a total loss.
Four fire departments responded to the fire in very cold weather, battling the blaze for five hours. The Garbrechts were alerted to a fire by a smoke detector.
