  • Mixed weather marks youth deer...

    Well, our 2014 youth deer hunt was bad and good, weather-wise.
    Saturday was just plain miserable with all the rain. Of course, there are those who consider the off and on rain, and cool temperatures, the best weather for hunting deer.
    Then came Sunday with a beautiful, rain free, morning. The temperature was good and the wind was acceptable for the morning and evening hours.
    I know of several youth who took advantage of the weekend, but as I write this I haven’t heard what kind of luck they had.

  • Golf: Freshman records hole-in-...

     Hitting a hole-in-one is something most golfers can only dream about. 

    According to Golf Digest’s website, the odds of hitting a hole-in-one are outrageous – 12,500 to 1 if you’re and amateur, 5,000 to 1 if you’re a low handicap, and 2,500 to 1 if you’re a pro.
