  • Decision 2.0 shows changes in culture

    By Matt Overing

    Germany won the World Cup over the weekend. It was the first time a European country won the World Cup in South America.

    It’s a word made up by the 11-12-year-old softball team and is a combination of the words effort and confidence. Efferdence is the only way to describe how the team went into the state championship last week. 

    Under a black and starless sky, Marion County went down swinging as they had the state title torn from their grasp and were defeated by North Laurel in two games on July 9.

  • No matter the lure, you need some luck

     What most amazes me about fishing is the absolute variety of lures we can use to catch bass. Not just the difference in colors, but in styles and types.

    We have “rubber” baits such as worms, creatures, grubs and, well, just about anything a bass is likely to ever encounter. With these, most of the lures action is a result of what you put into them. You can drop, lift, wiggle and shake them to cause movement so they look like something to eat or just to kill, because it aggravates or startles them.
