  • Jets International

    Word trickled down through word of mouth and the World Wide Web. It spread like wild fire. Jets Over Kentucky was on.  Last week at the Lebanon-Springfield Airport, jet engines roared and remote control planes performed tricks while people exchanged laughs and jokes about their models, experiences and current events. 

  • Rain, rain, just another reason to complain

    It’s really kind of amazing! This year I’ve heard about how much rain we’ve had. And if memory serves me, it’s from the same people who previously complained about how dry it was this time last year.

    Worse are the day to day complainers! “It waits till my off days to rain.” Or “Why does it rain on the weekends and holidays?” You’d think it only rained on them.

  • Wet week could affect fishing strategies

    This 4th of July can be summed up in one word, wet!
    Sorta ruined everyone’s long weekend. Course I’m talking about some cookins’, some parties and some lake time.
    What it didn’t ruin was the reason July 4th isn’t just another date on the calendar. If ya don’t know what I’m talkin’ about, shame on you!

    With a solid week of rain we’re likely to see our lake levels on the rise. What does this mean to anglers?

  • 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.
