  • Big Blue Nation

    As I have previously discussed, Jessica and I are members of the Big Blue Nation and watch every Wildcat game that we possibly can. Also, if you remember, Jessica's uncle Bobby Joe Farmer was a subject of a column previously on the same topic. We are proud of our team, and recently the rest of the country found out why we thought this past season's squad was one of the best.

  • Give topwater fishing a try

    Ok, early deadline again! So, here I sit with not much in the way of anything to write about! But, all is not lost.
    What we're going to talk about is fishing. And, not just any kind of fishing. We're going to talk about fishin' on top.
    Topwater fishing is about the most exciting form of fishing there is. You're usually restricted to about four hours fishing topwater.
    That's two hours in the morning and two hours in the evening. The morning hours usually start an hour before sunrise and end an hour after the sun comes up.

  • Voice of the Football Knights -...

    Beginning with the 1983 football season, Charles Lancaster Sr. began a career that will now enter its 30th season beginning in August of this year. Lancaster started calling football games at Marion County High School with that unique deep voice that we have all become accustomed to throughout the years.
    "I try to keep an even keel in my tone, no matter what the situation is on the field," he said.
    For all that have ever attended a football game that Lancaster has called, he seems to have perfected that art.
