  • What is America’s favorite sport?

    There has been some debate lately about what is America’s favorite sport and second and third and so on.  

    The National Football League seems to be hands down the top among most with the number two spot disagreed upon. College football and Major League Baseball are the two sports that seem to vie for the second spot in most nationwide surveys. However, baseball’s demographic is of a much older group.

    The Harrison County football Thorobreds were in Fleming County last week for a four-team, seven-on-seven competition.

    The 2016 Cal Ripken State Playoffs were held at various sites over the past weeks with the 9-, 10-, 11- and 12-year-olds’ Harrison County teams taking part.  

    The 11-year-olds’ team made it all the way to the finals in their tournament but all of the teams did very well in pool play.

  • Will I be a ‘football grandpa?’

    Football can be a dangerous sport if not played and coached the way it should be played and coached.  

    It is being very heavily scrutinized for head injuries and other maladies.  

    I still would like to be a ‘football grandpa.’  

    I did not get to play much football myself. I will never be in the Tell City High School football Hall of Fame or in any other I expect and that is okay.  

  • Top-water lures during low light...

    An old saying among bass anglers declares they would rather catch one bass on a top-water lure than 10 on anything else.

    The shake-inducing strike of a huge black bass savaging a top-water lure at dawn is as addictive as free donuts in the break room at work. Once bitten by the top-water bug, it becomes part of your fishing arsenal for life.

    Daytime bass fishing grows increasingly tough in the heat of July and August. Fishing a top-water lure during the edges of the day draws vicious strikes.
