Cheers, soldiers and golfers, for we have good news.
If you are on the Fort Benning Golf Course, you won't have a problem getting a drink while hitting the greens.
Jack Daniel's opened a new bar and lounge on post Saturday to become the second bar of its kind located on a military installation. Jack's 19th Hole is nestled among the pines and overlooking the 18th hole at the golf course.
"Jack Daniel's and Fort Benning Golf Club hope to provide servicemen and women of Fort Benning with a beautiful facility, a memorable experience and a little piece of American iconic Jack Daniel's Tennessee Whiskey," said Joe Bollinger, Brown-Forman's director of military and transportation. Brown-Forman is the parent company of Jack Daniel's Tennessee Whiskey based in Lynchburg, Tenn.
Never miss a local story.
After the ceremony to open the bar, a golf tournament honored Fort Benning's Gold Star Fathers of fallen soldiers in the U.S. Armed Forces. Photos of the fallen soldiers were placed at each tee box.
So the guy at No Shame Theatre didn't call Ledger-Enquirer reporter and columnist an a--hole as previously reported,
One of the father's of the three aspiring comedians posted a nearly 5-minute video clip of "The Good, The Bad and The Ledger." It was funnier than advertised.
But the question from the audience that prompted the column was not "Why is Chuck Williams such an a--hole?"
It seems the person posing the question wanted to know why Chuck is such a (feminine hygiene product). There is a difference.
We here at Chatterland know Chuck regrets the error.
And as far as the guys who did "The Good, The Bad and The Ledger" -- where they give good advice, bad advice and read a Leger-Enquirer Facebook comment -- keep up the good work.
It was funny.
The world can be cruel sometimes. Read the Chatter above. But sometimes if you're in the right place at the right time, you get to witness something pretty cool.
While walking back from lunch Tuesday, a newsie witnessed two young girls, maybe about 8-10 years old, standing outside Momma Goldberg's Deli near a homeless woman who was sitting at one of the tables.
"I like your shoes," one of the young girls said to the woman.
"Oh yeah?" the woman said. "I like your shoes, too. They're nice and white."
The young girl was wearing Keds.
"Thank you," she said.
It may not be much to you, but it touched our hearts.
Compliment someone today. We promise it won't hurt.
