    A pair of life-long Taylor Countians scored holes-in-one last month — one at home and one on the road.
    Tommie Brown picked up his third career ace while playing No. 18 at Campbellsville Country Club on June 6.
    Brown, who used a 9-iron, was playing with Buck Roberts and Fred Waddle. (Brown spent much of last week watching his three grandsons play in a 13-14-year-old baseball tournament in Georgetown and was headed to Prestonsburg for more action over the weekend.)
