    Luckily for Marion County the rainy weather held off long enough May 16 for a color-filled 5K. Although it wasn’t a timed race, multicolored Ric Niemi crossed the finish line first in the Color in Motion 5K.
    Many families and friends gathered together to throw around some color and run a three-mile race before the rain hit. Before and after the 5K there was a fun, loud, musical, color throwing party that everyone enjoyed.

  • More ways to get a bullfrog

    In my last column I told you about taking bullfrogs. I mentioned gigging and shooting them with a .22 caliber rifle.
    Since the column came out, I’ve been informed of other methods of taking them.
    Naturally, if you can shoot them with a rifle, you can shoot ‘em with a pistol, .22 preferred. With either a rifle or a pistol, you should employ standard firearms safety rules. Pay particular attention to the one that says, “Know where your bullet can go.”
