Please permit me to share my thoughts with your readers about Johnny "Mr. Camden" Deal. He was a most deserving recipient of the Jake Watson Award. That award holds a special meaning to me. Jake Watson's grandmother and my paternal great-grandfather were siblings from Greenwood. Jake was a true Camden icon, as is Johnny. Equal only to my own is Johnny's love for our community. Never is he seen without that big, friendly grin. We need more people like him. Johnny is the "Real Deal."

My husband, an avid, albeit average golfer, was glued to the television when the Masters was being played. It was nirvana for him when his spring break fell during Masters Week. He could watch it every minute it was on the air. Of course, he was watching and appreciating the game of golf. I, on the other hand, was gawking at the golf course at Augusta every ...
