Owen Lasswell

Breeze-Courier Writer

Fairway friends share Taylorville connection at U.S. Senior Open
TAYLORVILLE — It really is a small world, just ask Taylorville’s Dave Ryan or Scottsdale, Arizona’s Jerry Smith. Ryan grew up here in Taylorville while Smith hails from Oskaloosa, Iowa. In their youth, neither had any reason to know that the other existed. In the years that have followed, however, the pair have become great friends, friends that share a connection to Taylorville and a love for the game of golf.

Taylorville teenager gets a new lease on life

Owen Lasswell

Breeze-Courier Writer

TAYLORVILLE — For the better part of his adolescence, 19-year-old Lucas Domonousky of Taylorville was not in complete ownership of his own body; he was in a transient state, teetering between the pursuit of a normal childhood and the constant struggle with his health. Sometimes, he was only able to lease fleeting moments of freedom before he was subjugated by his epilepsy, a condition that could afflict his body with multiple seizures in a single day.

Candy’s green thumb is evident in her garden, beginning with the relatively new berm in front throughout whimsical touches such as the fairy garden tucked along the fence in her back garden. Her husband Ray says their garden “reflects the ‘battle’ between the neat freak husband and the wife who prefers the natural look.” Candy agrees, but she also knows that deep down he likes the result.
