  • Woods and Waters: Responsible...

    To be honest, I didn’t realize that the crimes of trespass and theft (that’s taking fish and/or game) were as bad as they are!
    After my article came out last week I had several farmers, i.e. landowners, tell me some horror stories. Most were trespass, but one fellow told me about having a calf shot … calf didn’t die.

    The Marion County High School tennis teams were in action at Hart County on March 18. The girls came away with a 5-4 win, however the boys weren’t as successful. But, both teams gained valuable experience, according to Head Coach Landon Williams.
    "The Hart County match was very beneficial for both squads because we played about six hours of tennis,” he said. “The players for both squads enjoyed the opportunities and the girls did just enough to come away with a 5-4 win.”

  • Experience shapes us

    By Gerard Flanagan

    I heard a saying somewhere one time that went something like this: "Experience is the meanest teacher because she gives the test first and the lesson after." I can't remember where I heard the quote, but nonetheless, it's pretty obvious what this quote says about experience. Experience is unpleasant (though very beneficial) because we are first presented with a situation we know little to nothing about, and then, after you experience a trying time, you learn from it for the future.

  • Woods and Waters: Respect...

    Respect. It’s a simple concept. However, not everyone understands it. As a hunter without land of my own to hunt on, I have to depend on the kindness of others to have a place to hunt! And I appreciate it when I’m given permission. Part of that appreciation is respect.
