  • A good reason to be a fan

    This year, we will again have the chance to witness a spectacle of human ability and achievement. It is equally a celebration of commitment and talent. The participants only have this opportunity once every four years, which adds to its significance.
    Obviously, I'm not referring to the Presidential election. Instead, in a little over a month, the 2012 Olympic Summer Games will begin in London, England.

  • No time to fish - it's...

    Just a few days now until the much-anticipated Warrior Dash. Last I checked there were more than 5,800 signed up to participate. Couple that with a requested 2,000 workers, who knows how many "observers" and we're looking at a major crowd on Saturday, June 23.
    I'm thinkin' this could be the biggest crowd... outside Ham Days... we're likely to see here for a one-day event!
    Am I doin' the dash? Heck no, too many years, too many miles. Besides, I already did my dash years ago!

    The Warrior Dash, a fierce competition that puts the mind, body and soul to the test, is just a few days away, and while many people associate warriors with men, several local women are redefining the word "warrior."
