  • Divine Equine

    Though school is out, it does not mean children can’t learn.
    The Horse Club, taught and led by Joseph Grant, Ruth Mackey and Scott Gardiner, allows children to learn about horses as well as increase their physical abilities as they learn how to bond with the equine species.
    So far, the children in attendance have worked on crafts, learned about saddles and other equipment, as well as how to interact with, ride and groom horses.

  • Hunter education class at Sportsman Lake Aug. 3

    Early deadline again. And again, not much to write about!
    Did find out something interesting you’ll want to remember.
    Last Friday I was stopped at Sportsman Lake and told there would be a hunter education class (orange card class) held there on Aug. 3.
    That’s right, apparently the class has gone from a three-day venue to a one day, eight-hour class.

  • Moooove over Warrior Dash

    It began in the tune of an air horn. Like a riot, people from all over the state ripped and roared in waves through a single choke point, the starting line. In the group of adrenaline filled runners, there were cries of joy while others said nothing at all. It was all drowned out in the thumps of feet hitting the dirt and mud.

  • Make memories, go fishing

    Had a chance to go fishing with about two dozen Girl Scouts Friday. We caught a bunch of sunfish on little worms. That’s if you call two and three-inch fish fun to catch. Well, Jeremy Bowman and I got to see first-hand how much excitement a fish that size can generate. The squeals and laughter were genuine and brought back some pleasant memories.

  • Bull’s-eye!

    You grip the string with three fingers and pull. Steadily, tension builds. It’s not one pound, or two… not even three… 36 pounds resist in an eerily smooth way as you pull back.

    It subsides.

  • Fish: Shuck

    Ryan Shuck, 9,  caught this seven-pound large mouth bass on June 8 at a farm pond in Gravel Switch.

  • Why the bass go deep

    In last week’s article I told you that a majority of a lake’s bass spend most of their time in deep water.
    However, I neglected to tell you why! Those of you who are inquisitive may have looked it up on Google or, heaven forbid, read some magazine articles.
    If so, you discovered that bass go deep seeking cooler water, water with more dissolved oxygen in it, or maybe, as I actually read somewhere, “Bass spend time in deep water to avoid the bright sunlight, since they don’t have eyelids.”

  • Hills ‘n’ Horns: Warrior Dash meets foe

    Last year, people all over the nation came to Lebanon to participate in the Warrior Dash, a national obstacle racing series. This year, Marion County will have its own extreme 5K race – Hills ‘n’ Horns.

  • Rough Riders

    Like a swarm of hornets on steroids, motors roar.
    Rubber slashes at the dirt, which coats everything in its path.
    In the war-like chaos, there is silence as a rider launches himself off a mound appropriately referred to as 911.
    A grill smolders, a dog pants, a toddler sitting on her dad’s shoulders smiles.
    The rider lands, people cheer.
    “They make it look easy and so smooth,” Sharon “Sam” Bach of Lebanon said.
