first_imgSale of Local Golf Course Complete: New Ownership Shares PlansNORTH CLARENDON, VT (June 13, 2007) – Stonehedge Golf Course announced today that the course has been purchased by Richard “Dick” Bendig and his two sons, Shawn and Chriss.

The course was designed and operated by Robert Matson since 1995.”We are very pleased to have completed the sale and excited about the possibilities this course has to offer local golfers,” said Richard Bendig, President of Stonehedge. “The real beauty of the course lies in its versatility. For the accomplished golfer, we offer an affordable way for them to improve their short game. For the senior golfer, we provide a 9-hole course that can be easily walked or ridden in just over an hour. And, finally, for the younger/novice golfer, we strive to create an atmosphere that allows them to learn the game at their own pace.””I’ve been playing golf for over 20 years and can still remember what it felt like the first time I stepped onto a tee box at a larger, traditional golf course& Simply put, I found the experience to be rather stressful and unpleasant,” said fellow course owner Shawn Bendig. “Here at Stonehedge, one of our primary goals is allowing the less experienced golfer to feel at ease on the course and enjoy their round of golf. Judging from the conversations that we have had with some of our customers and the smiles I’ve seen on their faces as they come off the 9th green, I’d say we’re heading in the right direction.””We are thrilled with how well course conditions have improved in the past two months,” said Chriss Bendig, the final member of the new ownership team. “Our turf manager has the greens playing better every week!”Stonehedge Golf Course is located on 216 Squire Road in North Clarendon, VT 05759 (directly behind Automobile International at the junction of Routes 7 and 103).

Bale flattered by Ronaldo comparisons

first_img He added: “It’s flattering, but I don’t really look too much into it. I don’t get the newspapers or read too many reports, so I don’t really know how much hype there is. Obviously my friends tell me things, but I just treat every day as normal and focus on my job. “I don’t model my game on Ronaldo’s. I have my own way of playing and it’s not exactly the same but we do have similar attributes. I just like watching the best players: seeing Messi and Ronaldo. I’ve watched Ronaldo in the past and you do take things from other people’s games to try to improve as a player, which I have – hopefully.” Bale grabbed the world’s attention in 2010 when he scored a thrilling hat-trick against Inter Milan in the San Siro and then went on to embarrass Maicon with a breathtaking display in the reverse fixture. Some doubted whether Bale could improve much more following those two games, but his game has come on immeasurably since. The former Southampton player now operates in just as devastating fashion down the centre as he does out wide and he has almost doubled his tally from the 2010-11 season with at least 13 games remaining. Bale says Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas has played a significant part in his development, improving his tactical awareness since the days of the previous manager Harry Redknapp. “Harry was more ‘go out there and play how you feel and express yourself’. With Andre, there’s a certain shape and a style we play,” Bale said. “I think Harry was more free and let you do what you want. Andre does that too, but there’s a lot more tactical work. I think it’s something that’s good to learn. We’ve done well this year and I think that’s down to our defending as well as attacking.” Tottenham star Gareth Bale admits he is flattered at being described as one of the best players in the world after a series of scinitilating displays for club and country. The 23-year-old has scored 23 goals in total this term, leading to speculation that Real Madrid have made him their number one transfer target for the summer. Bale’s powerful cutting runs, and his ability to bamboozle goalkeepers with logic-defying free-kicks have led to him being compared with the biggest superstar currently on the books at the Bernabeu – Cristiano Ronaldo. Tottenham’s talisman says he is honoured to be mentioned in the same breath as Ronaldo and Barcelona ace Lionel Messi, although he claims to be unaware of just how much of a stir his superb performances have caused this season. Bale said in an interview with Sport magazine: “I think anybody would love to be mentioned alongside the best in the world.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

NFL POWER RANKINGSRavens jump Patriots; Cowboys, Colts climb; Steelers, Eagles dip for Week 12NFL standings for Week 12 AFC playoff pictureWho would be in?1. Patriots, first place, AFC East (10-1) — The Patriots, whose only loss this season is to the Ravens, hold a slim one-game lead for the top seed. They also need to keep winning to ensure taking another division title, as they’re only up two games and have a tiebreaker on the Bills. Up next: Texans2. Ravens, first place, AFC North (9-2) — The Ravens are playing like the best team in the AFC but still need to finish at least even with the Patriots to get the top seed and home-field advantage in the playoffs. They are close to running away with the division, three games up on the Steelers and four games up on the Browns. Up next: 49ers3. Texans, first place, AFC South (7-4) — The Texans jumped the Colts by beating them 20-17 to open up Week 12 on Thursday night, also erasing their previous head-to-head tiebreaker. It doesn’t get any easier in Week 13, however. Up next: Patriots4. Chiefs, first place, AFC West (7-4) — The Chiefs have a Week 12 bye but already have dropped to No. 4 because they lose the head-to-head tiebreaker with the Texans, who beat them in Arrowhead Stadium earlier in the season. Up next: Raiders5. Bills, second place, AFC East (8-3) — The Bills have a strong hold on the top wild-card position as they continue to take advantage of a very favorable schedule, but things will get difficult during a key stretch starting in Week 13 with a short-week trip to Dallas on Thanksgiving. Up next: Cowboys6. Steelers, second place, AFC West (6-5) — The Steelers jumped here after surviving the Bengals on Sunday thanks to the Raiders and Colts losing. They still hold this spot with the Titans also winning, because of a better conference record. Up next: BrownsWho can get there?7. Raiders (6-5); 8. Colts (6-5); 9. Titans (6-5); 10. Browns (5-6)The Colts fell here after their key division loss in Houston on Thursday night. The Raiders fell out after temporarily being here after losing to the Jets. The Steelers, who have a superior conference record, jumped them. The Colts lose the head-to-head tiebreakers to both the Raiders and the Steelers. The Titans made it a virtual three-way tie with a win over the Jaguars. The Browns separated themselves from the below category to stay alive and well with the Steelers nextWho’s likely out?11. Jaguars (4-7); 12. Chargers (4-7); 13. Jets (4-7); 14. Broncos (3-8); 15. Dolphins (2-9)The Broncos and Dolphins stayed cold with losses in Week 12, while the Jets, going through the easiest second-half schedule, have won three straight to save some face with Adam Gase.Who’s out?16. Bengals (0-11)The Bengals can’t do better than five wins, which isn’t good enough. They’re bad enough now to go winless and secure the top pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.WEEK 12 NFL PICKS: Against the spread | Straight-up predictions (Getty Images) https://images.daznservices.com/di/library/sporting_news/28/be/aaron-rodgers-11082019-getty-ftrjpg_17tdjutdh7jfe1eeyqjp8gswgn.jpg?t=1292581454&w=500&quality=80 NFC playoff pictureWho would be in?1. 49ers, first place, NFC West (10-1) — The 49ers maintained both their top seed and division lead by ripping the Packers on Sunday night, staying a game up on the Saints and Seahawks. They still need to play the former, but lost to the latter, so keep that in mind down the line. Up next: Ravens2. Saints, first place, NFC South (9-2) — The Saints will get their shot at the 49ers soon, but they don’t play the Packers. They have wins over the Cowboys and Seahawks. They are on the verge of clinching another division title with a four-game lead coming out of Week 12. Up next: Falcons3. Packers, first place, NFC North (8-3) — The Packers missed a big chance to jump up to a No. 1 by being throttled by the 49ers, but they are still up a head-to-head tiebreaker on the Vikings for the division lead. Up next: Giants4. Cowboys, first place, NFC East (6-5) — The Cowboys still have a one-game lead, plus the head-to-head tiebreaker, over the Eagles coming out of Week 12, but on top of being well behind the Packers and Saints, they lost to both teams, so should they hold on and win the division again, they’re likely stuck on this seed. Up next: Bills5. Seahawks, second place, NFC West (9-2) — The Seahawks are looking at the No. 3 seed after beating the Eagles, should the 49ers lose in Week 12, assuming the Saints rally to win as big favorites. Up next: Vikings6. Vikings, second place, NFC North (8-3) — The Vikings will either stay here during their bye or slide up to No. 5 with a loss by the Seahawks. Guess who they play in Week 13. Up next: SeahawksWho can get there?7. Rams (6-5); 8. Bears (6-6); 9. Eagles (5-6); 10. Panthers (5-6); 11. Buccaneers (4-7)The Rams failed to keep winning in Week 12 after beating the Bears in Week 11, losing the AFC’s Ravens badly at home Monday night. and severely hurting their fading chances. The Eagles’ best path to the playoffs remains winning the NFC East over the Cowboys.Who’s likely out12. Cardinals (3-7-1); 14. Falcons (3-8); 15. Giants (2-9),;16. Redskins (2-9)The Cardinals, Falcons and Giants have shown flashes at times, but the wins haven’t added up. The Redskins no longer look like they will finish behind the Bengals. Who’s out13. Lions (3-8-1)They were eliminated with their loss to the Bears which keeps the wild-card berths and NFC North out of reach.last_img read more
