Deep Run graduate named Big Ten Golfer of the Week

University of Michigan freshman golfer Chris O'Neill, a Deep Run High School graduate, was named the Big Ten conference Golfer of the Week Oct. 17, following his career-best performance at the Alister MacKenzie Invitational Oct. 15-16. It is the first conference accolade of his career.

O'Neill, who tied for 14th individually at the MacKenzie Invitational, recorded his second top-20 and lowered his career-best 54-hole tournament total by eight shots with his three-under 210. He bettered the 218 he posted earlier this season at the Windon Memorial Classic, held Sept. 23-24.

En route to the career-best tally, he carded a career-best two-under 69 in the first round, following with a one-under 70 in the second and an even-par 71 in the third. All three of his rounds at the MacKenzie Invitational topped his previous career-best round total of 72 shot in the first and second rounds of the Windon Memorial Classic.

Overall, O'Neill's three-under 210 is the lowest 54-hole event total by a freshman since Joey Garber posted a four-under 209 in the 2011 NCAA Central Regional -- a span of 16 tournaments.

Short Pump Rotary volunteers help with rebuild, repair


On June 13, the Short Pump Rotary Club partnered with Schnabel Engineering for a day of volunteer work with Rebuilding Together Richmond. Team members (among them [from left] Chris Rufe, Melissa Abraham, Rick Naschold, and Micky Ogburn) completed a variety of repairs and home improvements ranging from painting and landscaping to cabinet installation and fence building.

“It was a privilege to be involved in this project," said club president Melissa Abraham. "The homeowner kept thanking the volunteers, but I think all of us would agree we are the ones who actually benefited. It was an opportunity to help a community member, fellowship with great people and improve our handyman skills." > Read more.

A triumphant return

Pixar’s ‘Inside Out’ is a magnificent, emotional ride

Explaining the nuts and bolts of Pixar’s new, exciting, innovative Inside Out – really digging into the film’s shape-and-color explanation of the human mind – would take up the entirety of this review. And probably three or four more (if movies had instruction manuals, Inside Out’s would be the size and general poundage of a cinder block).

It’s a complicated movie. So here’s the gist, in as simply-put terms can be. > Read more.
