  • New Haven mayor swinging at his first term

    In the winter months, Bobby Johnson hangs out at Extreme Swing in Bardstown. He works there unpaid, just to have something to do.

    When warmer weather arrives, Johnson stays busy outside, tending to his lawn and rental property, golfing - or attempting to, he said - or just enjoying nature. But this year, he'll have something else to keep him busy.
