  • A grocer and a giver

    Getting Donnie Miles to slow down for a few minutes for an interview is no easy task.
    You might catch him early in the morning. He opens his grocery store, Loretto Foodland, at 7 a.m.
    But, get there early, talk fast and expect several interruptions. He’s a busy man. And his customers come first.
    Within minutes of walking into his store bright and early last week, Miles was busy waiting on customers, answering phone calls and lending some gas money to a friend.

  • How to be a bass fisherman

     So you want to be a bass angler! Well, first you need a boat. Not just any boat, but a bass boat. Something in the 18-foot, on the short side, to around 21-feet in length. Cost? Around $40,000 to $60,000 or, in the neighborhood of $400 per month for 15 years!

    Of course you won’t pull it very far with the family minivan, so you’ll need a truck, with a big gas guzzling V8 with lots of power and torque. Or maybe a big four-door,one-ton diesel. Of course diesel will cost more but you can’t put a price on cool!

  • Bass fishing team may be in place next year

    In late November last year, Marion County High School was given the go ahead to create a bass fishing team by the Marion County Board of Education. The 4-1 one vote in favor of the team passed on Nov. 26.
