    It was a beautiful morning for a race on May 9, when Calvary Elementary School hosted its first Dragon Dash 5K to raise money for the school. It was a decent size turn out for the small community. The race began at the elementary school and looped around Sportsman Lake, then back to the school for the finish.
    There were many students from Calvary, but also from the other elementary schools as well as well as adults.

  • Looking forward to the next...

    A couple of weeks into this broken arm thing I’ve     come to realize that “looking forward” to a season, be it hunting or fishing, is as exciting as participating.
    Or, as I’ve said before, it’s the “gettin’ ready” as much as the “doin’.”
    Of course the usual progression is getting tackle ready as in cleaning, then recleaning guns, sharpening or replacing hooks, and organizing everything.
    With a beautiful week, I hope you had an opportunity to enjoy the outdoors.
