As one of the only mini-golf courses in Jackson County, Parnell Creek RV Park invites putter-wielding patrons to traverse 18 holes of slick, tricky, obstacle-laden greens. Expertly guided dimpled orbs weave in and out of the course’s various impeding miscreants, which include train tracks, a wishing well, stoplights, and nearsighted Easter egg hunters. The course is well maintained and suited for birdie-gatherers of all ages, abilities, and 40-yard-dash times. Free rounds will be granted to the lowest scorer of the foursome and any sage green-readers who convert a hole in one on the harrowing 18th hole.
Iris equips its students with the power to read quickly and effectively, reducing molasses-slow reading habits to rubble and replacing them with a laserlike ability to consume and comprehend literature. With a five-hour class, students will learn drills to drum up the speed of their reading, creative note-taking tips, and how to better retain knowledge gathered during reading. Different mediums of information conveyance will also be covered, such as technical materials, magazines, newspapers, and websites. Past students have reported reading up to five times faster as a result of Iris's instruction, leaving more time for hobbies such as carpet weaving or ship-in-a-bottle smashing.
