  • Bluegill are made to be caught...

    What’s the most pursued fish? Is it bass, catfish, crappie? Or maybe it’s the bluegill?
    I’ll take the little “silver dollar” bluegill fillets, deep fried, any day over most anything else that swims.
    Not only are the gills good to eat, they’re also the most prolific and easiest fish to catch!
    This fish is literally the hook, line and sinker variety … well, add in a float!
    The rod? Pretty much anything you can tie a line to — cane pole, fiberglass pole or just a skinny tree limb.

    After hitting a season-high four home runs in their 17th District Tournament championship rout, the Central Hardin Lady Bruins were kept mostly inside the park May 27 by the Marion County Lady Knights.
    It still didn’t matter.
    While the Lady Bruins (32-7-1) are known for their big bats, they’re quite adept at playing small ball, too.

    Well, people of Marion County, school is officially over. What a relief! Now I wonder if some of the parents are relieved or if they’re freaking out because their child is going to be home all summer. I know I wrote a column about finals and the students moving up a grade and wishing them luck. Now I can officially say I am a Marion County High School graduate and you students are now a grade higher!
