June 9, 2011

PGA and Champions Tour golfer Kenny Perry arrived in Catawba County on Wednesday and it “immediately felt like home.”

“People sound like I do when I talk, and I feel very comfortable around here,” Perry said. ““Being a country boy, I enjoy the South and it’s very comfortable being around people like this. It’s very nice.”

This is Perry’s first trip to Catawba County for the Greater Hickory Classic at Rock Barn, but the 14-time PGA tour winner said Monday it was an easy decision to select Rock Barn.

Despite a crowd of 35 to 40 people, the city of Claremont passed a budget Monday without any public comments or complaints.

After Claremont City Council members opened a required public hearing to the larger-than-usual audience, no one decided to speak, said Claremont City Manager Doug Barrick.

“The commissioners held the public hearing, and nobody came up to speak,” Barrick said. “The commissioners closed it, made a few comments and approved the budget.”
