  • What a great time of year

    What a great time of year it is! It is now officially spring, and as of last week, each spring sport has started up and began competition. The weather so far for the games, meets, and matches I have attended has been great, much warmer than last year when I remember going to events bundled up in pants, sweatshirts, and even gloves. I know that it may not stay like this, but if it does, I sure won't complain.

  • Signs, signs, everywhere there's signs

    During my wanderings while checking out prospective turkey hunting spots I've noticed some dogwoods blooming.
    So, what does that have to do with anything? Well, if you believe in such things as "signs" then you may know about dogwoods. Seems bass are supposed to start their spawn when the dogwoods bloom!
    While I don't "disbelieve" in signs, I believe more in tangible indicators. Things like water temperature, moon phase and observation serve me better. Even better is when the "signs" and observable indicators coincide!

  • Lady Knights are undefeated

The team's game on Friday night at Bethlehem was postponed due to rain, with no make-up date announced as of press time.
