  • Pull!

    first_imgI’ve always been a big fan of throwing rocks at things. It’s a simple pleasure—take a small rock and throw it at something big, like a street sign or pine cone or maybe even a bigger rock on the other side of the trail…the possibilities are endless and I’ve used the fine art of throwing rocks at things to entertain myself and other bikers while taking breaks on long rides. It passes the time and introduces an element of competition to the otherwise lame “break session” of a bike ride.I took the fine art of throwing rocks at things to the next level on a recent road ride by bringing a slingshot. If you haven’t handled a slingshot since you were a kid, drop what you’re doing right now and buy one. The minute you take aim and let a rock or acorn fly through the “goal posts” you’ll be transported back to your youth. To a time when your back never hurt and you collected baseball cards and spent most of your free time riding your bike around the neighborhood looking for targets to hit with your slingshot that might cause a mild explosion but wouldn’t get you in much trouble.The ride itself was great. We chose a long, somewhat brutal gravel climb up to the edge of the Parkway and then a meandering downhill past million dollar homes and the occasional black bear to get cocktails at The Grove Park Inn. We drank on the patio overlooking downtown and surrounding mountains. It was incredibly fancy.But easily the best part of the ride was the break we took at the top of the climb where we emptied a few beer cans and used them as targets. First, we set the cans on a set of stairs, but soon we were throwing the cans in the air and yelling “Pull!” like skeet shooters. It’s incredibly hard to hit a flying beer can with a slingshot—at least for amateurs like us. But for a few minutes, my back didn’t hurt. And we didn’t break any windows and nobody got in trouble. So, all said, that’s a pretty good Whiskey Wednesday.last_img read more

  • BULLIED PRIEST LEAVES DONEGAL AND THANKS PARISHONERS FOR THEIR SUPPORT

    first_imgTHE CATHOLIC priest who quit his post after being physically and verbally abused by a small number of people has now left Donegal after thanking people for their support.Parishoners in Glencolmcille had pleaded with Father Bill McGeady to stay in their parish where had served as a curate for almost two and half years.He had resigned his position a week ago, citing ongoing incidents of intimidation. These had left him mentally and physically weakened, said the priest who is a great uncle of Ireland soccer star Aidan McGeady.“He was very touched by the overwhelming public support but decided that as he had made his mind up, he wanted to go,” said one leading member of the congregation.“It’s a very sad week for everyone around here because a handful of people refused to let him run the parish his way.“The fact is that Father Bill was a great curate and it’s unlikely we will get a replacement for him anytime soon. He was very gracious and said he would miss living in Glen.” Fr McGeady is a native of Gortahork but grew up in Scotland. He is taking up a new position in a parish in Edinburgh.“The parish is not all about one priest or person in charge,” said Fr McGeady.“It is about all in the Parish doing their bit to serve God and each other.“I will miss all the good decent people of Glen, especially the housebound and sick. Please God I will return one day.”It’s understood the family whose campaign drove Fr McGeady out of Glencolmcille has been shunned in the past week.
