  • New challenge for new coach

    By Dennis George

    Sports correspondent

    Before he was named the new baseball coach at Marion County High School, Patrick Campbell had a nonchalant attitude about interest in the position when he spoke to his father Eugene.

    But that changed when the 2003 MCHS graduate was selected to head the program after the resignation of Chad Spalding.

    Phooooff!

    A bat cuts through the thick air and a dry and stingy slap cracks as a ball hits home into a catcher’s mitt. With command, an iron like fist clenches while the muscles in the forearm tighten and flex. A voice bellows, “Strike one!”

    The voice belongs to Tony Coleman.

  • 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.”
