Duane Hooton, 80 Versailles

first_imgDuane Hooton, 80, of Versailles passed away at 10:30am, Sunday, July 14, 2019 at the Kings Daughters Hospital in Madison after a perpetual decline in his health over the past several months. He was born in Cross Plains on January 27, 1939 the son of Roland and Clara Warfield Hooton. Survivors include one son David (Pam) Hooton of Round O, South Carolina; three daughters Dana Hooton of Willow Creek, California, Laura Hooton of Charleston, South Carolina, and Tracy (Jeff) Miller of South Carolina; 4 grandchildren and 5 great-grandchildren; his twin brother Dwight (Donna) Hooton of Versailles; two sisters Hope (Robert) Fisse of Madison, and Faith Huffman of Lafayette. He was preceded in death by his parents. Duane was a 1957 graduate of Versailles High School. Duane enjoyed having a twin (at least most of the time) and although they were identical, Duane always said he was the good looking one. After high school, Duane delivered Coca-Cola to thirsty customers in southeast Indiana for 18 years, and spent most of his working life thereafter driving a semi for various trucking companies. He was a member of the Bear Creek Baptist Church in Friendship. Duane accepted the Lord as his savior as a young man and was baptized in Munday’s Pool near Dabney alongside his brother Dwight. Duane loved his Lord, his family, and his dog Brady. He also enjoyed fishing, talking politics, and all sports. Duane’s wishes were to be cremated and a celebration of his life will take place on Friday, July 19th at 11am at the Versailles Baptist Church with visitation beginning at 10am. Burial will be in the Marble Corner Cemetery in Versailles. Memorials may be given to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital or the Wounded Warrior Project in care of the Stratton-Karsteter Funeral Home in Versailles.last_img read more


Dodgers’ Chris Taylor is re-adjusting to his natural position

first_imgPHOENIX — Playing shortstop is not like riding a bike. Chris Taylor held up his error in the seventh inning Monday as a case in point.Jarrod Dyson hit a ground ball to the left of the mound that caromed off Dodgers pitcher Tony Cingrani. Suddenly, time was of the essence. With 20-20 hindsight, Taylor believes he should have tossed the ball to second base for a forceout. Instead, he rushed a throw to first that sailed high. Cody Bellinger had to jump just to keep the ball from encroaching on the first row of seats. By the time his feet returned to solid ground, it was too late to tag the speedy Dyson.“That’s one of those plays that, the more I’m there, the game will slow down a little bit,” Taylor said.Taylor should have plenty of time to re-adjust to his natural position. All-Star Corey Seager will miss the rest of the season recovering from Tommy John surgery. The position is Taylor’s to lose. Turner hasn’t played this season while recovering from a fractured bone in his left hand. He only began swinging a bat last week.Forsythe is on the 10-day disabled list with inflammation in his right shoulder.Rich Hill threw a bullpen session Tuesday and will start Sunday’s game in Monterrey, Mexico against the San Diego Padres. Hill is recovering from a cut on his left middle finger and a subsequent infection.The Dodgers haven’t determined who will start Friday and Saturday’s games, but Roberts mentioned left-hander Alex Wood and right-hander Walker Buehler as candidates.ALSOBrock Stewart was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City one day after he threw 1-2/3 innings out of the bullpen. Stewart allowed three hits and one run, and struck out three batters in his 2018 debut. … Left-hander Edward Paredes was recalled from Oklahoma City prior to Tuesday’s game. Paredes was 1-2 with one save and a 1.86 ERA at Triple-A. … The Facebook Watch broadcast of Thursday’s game will feature Rich Waltz calling the game alongside analysts representing both clubs, the Dodgers’ Orel Hershiser and former D-back Eric Byrnes. Dodgers bench slumping Cody Bellinger for a day Dodgers’ Justin Turner looking rejuvenated on defense This isn’t a cold audition. The Dodgers tried to keep Taylor’s shortstop instincts warm during Cactus League play, and again during pregame drills in the regular season. Adjusting to a double-play partner – Chase Utley, Austin Barnes, Kiké Hernandez or Logan Forsythe – shouldn’t be a problem, he said.But game speed is something no one can practice. Taylor said that playing an inning here or there can only help so much.“Shortstop’s a really tough position to play if you’re not there every day,” he said. “It helps with your confidence, getting in that routine. It’s a position where you have to be aggressive. There can be no doubt. I like the idea of having an everyday player at shortstop rather than a platoon.”INJURY UPDATESInfielder Logan Forsythe might begin his minor league rehab assignment this weekend, Manager Dave Roberts said, but Justin Turner is unlikely to join him.Related Articles Dodgers’ hot-hitting Corey Seager leaves game with back injury center_img Whicker: Dustin May yet another example of the Dodgers’ eye for pitching Turner “took a lot of dry swings, a lot of grounders,” Roberts said. “It’s pushed back a little bit, not for any real reason but just the progression.” Dodgers’ Dave Roberts says baseball’s unwritten rules ‘have changed, should change’ Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
