I would like to share a feel good moment we had here today at Waterford Recreation and Parks. Back in July a gentleman who swims at Waterford Beach everyday lost is wedding band. The lifeguards have been searching every since. This ring was very special not only because of who the man was who lost it (a great person, a positive person), but he lost his wife a few years back and it meant the world to him. We were fortunate that a young man by the name of Keith Willie who does ...underwater metal detecting stopped in the office last week. We told him about the ring and guess what, he found it this weekend. Called the gentleman he came in and Mr. Willie came in and asked is this the ring, the man shook his head yes, Mr. Willie went to shake his hand and the other man just embraced him! Ok a few tears were shed my those in Recreation. The Day was here we called them, this is a feel good story with a happy ending for Mr. Hage and Mr. Willie. There are good things happening everyday unfortunately they don't make the front page only bad things seem to. Yeah for Mr. Hage and huge THANK YOU to Mr. Willie (firstname.lastname@example.org)
We caught up with Duke's legendary Hall of Fame coach Mike Krzyzewski, who shared some great insight on a topic all coaches and parents of young athletes must deal with: losing.
