  • Life lived to the fullest

    Lauren Hill was an inspirational young woman who recently passed away April 11. Hill had a rare brain cancer called Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG). She had a brain tumor the size of a lemon growing inside her for more than a year, but she never let that stop her.
    This will not be one of those sad stories you read. However it will hopefully touch a few hearts out there, maybe even more than a few.

  • Good scouting can pay off when...

    I don’t think you could’ve designed a better opening day for our spring turkey season!
    The rainy weather we’d been having was quickly forgotten as the woods came alive Saturday. Just as the sun started to break over the ridge … there it was, a gobbler.
    Now to some that wouldn’t mean a whole lot. But, to a turkey hunter with a shotgun in hand, on opening day, it was sweet music!
    We know there’s a bird nearby, so we’ll just hit the box call to let him know we’re here.

  • Duke takes the title

    In a heated battle between the Duke Blue Devils and the Wisconsin Badgers, the Blue Devils pulled out a win to take home the National title, winning 68-63.
    I’m sure everyone in the country watched this game, but I also wonder what team Kentucky fans cheered for, if they even cheered, because all UK fans hate Duke. However Wisconsin beat them to go to the championship game. So Cats fans, which did you, cheer for?
