  • Coyote hunters and farmers may be able to help one another

     This past week, while getting my coyote hunting stuff organized, I had an epiphany. OK, epiphany is a sudden realization or comprehension. Anyway, I had one!

    There are a lot of calves born right now. Calves are money on the hoof. Nobody likes losing their money.

    Coyotes like to eat newborn calves thus taking a farmer’s money. I, and some friends, like to shoot coyotes. Dead coyotes can’t eat your calves, or deer or quail, songbirds, dogs, cats, etc.

  • Biding his time

    March 11 will mark the 15-year anniversary of when Aaron Glasscock woke up to Drug Enforcement Administration agents storming into his hotel room in Gainesville, Fla., and arresting him for conspiracy to distribute cocaine.
    At that very moment, Aaron’s life, and the life of his family, was forever changed.
    “When the D.E.A. agents came in that morning everything I thought I knew, and my life in general, was turned upside down, and then shook,” Aaron wrote in a letter.

  • Honoring the past

    Sunday was a day to honor and remember black history in Marion County.
    Hundreds of people attended the local NAACP’s annual celebration at Centre Square, and then visited the Marion County Heritage Center for the grand opening of its new black history exhibit.
    “This is a great achievement,” said Ann Simpson, treasurer of the local NAACP chapter. “I think it’ll be more prosperous as it goes along.”

  • Fiscal court supports kids fishing program

    The Marion County Sheriff’s Office turned in $65,000 in excess fees to the Marion County Fiscal Court last week, but the court gave away some money as well.
    Jason Spalding appeared before the Marion County Fiscal Court on Feb. 20 seeking assistance for the Fishing for Kids program. Spalding told the magistrates that the program has attracted hundreds of children from in and around Marion County, but this year they lost one of their sponsors. The court encouraged Spalding to find an organization to oversee the event and to put some fund-raisers in effect for next year.
