  • 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.

  • Letter: Why not postpone deer season?

    With deer season starting soon there are many does with fawns so young and small that they still have soft spots and some are even newborn. Deer season should be postponed or killing these does banned.
    Also, there is no bear season in Marion County, so if a bear is seen, do not kill it. They are harmless anyway.
    I will never understand how hunting is a sport when high-powered guns with scopes are used against a defenseless animal. If a person needs the meat, that is different. However, health experts are advising eating little.

  • 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.
