We host the youth of our church for the annual Parker Memorial Youth Super Bowl Party and sometimes valuable lessons are learned as the game unfolds. Particularly, the lesson that Yankees catcher Yogi Berra summed so well many years ago, ”It ain’t over till it’s over.”

Jack Taylor, 94, is always at the Cane Creek golf course by 7:30 every morning to play nine holes as long as the temperature is above 40 degrees. On Tuesday, the weather spiked into the 60s and Mr. Jack — as he is known — sank an ace on the par-3 No. 3 hole with a 3-wood. He shot 43 on the f…
