  • Turleman-iacs

    The first time I met Ernie Brown Jr., a.k.a. Turtleman, he swept me off my feet.

    Literally.

    He does that to many women, apparently. In fact, it's become one of his signature moves. And it's just one of the many reasons why he's become a worldwide sensation.

    Sure, he catches snapping turtles and other wild creatures with his bare hands, but I've discovered that his fans love him for many other reasons besides his turtle catching abilities.

  • Building obstacles in order to overcome them

    Overcoming obstacles can be a challenge for anyone. Creating them, well, that's something else all together.

    Yet, that's exactly what Marion County JROTC students were doing this past weekend. On Saturday, students and their instructors constructed the first part of what they plan to be an obstacle course.

    They started with a 15-foot rope climb, a low crawl, a balance beam series and a six-foot wall. The plan is to add another dozen obstacles before the course is complete.
