    This is where I’m going to make some people very happy and others very unhappy.  I will not call anyone names if you disagree with me.  I will let you know what I think about this ruling, but the point of this column is to think about how we can move forward from here, no matter our opinion of the ruling itself.

  • State’s drinking water still healthy

    About a week ago, state officials released the latest annual report on the quality of a resource we too often take for granted: our drinking water.

  • Try shooting trap, skeet, and sporting clays

    As we plunge into full blown summer when there’s very little to hunt, we sometimes get bored … unless we fish.
    I don’t understand it but not everybody fishes!
    Anyway, you’ve got guns, ammo and everything you need to shoot, but nothing to shoot at! That’s not exactly right. You just have to do a little research.
    No birds to shoot at? Why not try trap skeet or maybe sporting clays? The little clay birds fly out of traps (launchers) like little Frisbies. The angles and distances vary to give you a more realistic hunting scenario.

  • In the hoop
