Gabby’s Fishing Fever

Need to relax? Go wade fishing

Just about any angler you talk to has some good stories and good memories of wade fishing in a river. To some anglers this is the best way to be as one with the outdoors. Once you enter the water and get deep enough to get used to it, you can really get the full experience of being in the […]

Readers share ‘mulberry’ memories

Following is a text message I just received, bringing back memories of squirrel hunting in mulberry season. We will just call it “Paw and me.” It came from Mike Hardy out in western Kentucky. “My ‘Paw’, Doug Hardy, was my first hunting partner and he was my granddad, my dad’s father. I have never seen any hunter, before or after, […]

A lesson learned from squirrel hunt

We still have a few more days left in spring squirrel season. I guess this season, which ends June 19, is almost forgotten about, based on what I see posted and listening to hunters, most of whom are above 60 years old.

NASCAR is back and fans may return soon

CHARLOTTE, N.C.


There is finally a break in this weird, new world of NASCAR after nine races over 16 days in three different states.
