  • County Hall Corner: Hawaii Oh-No0

    It is hard to tell at the moment what long-lasting impact an event may have. President George W. Bush did not want to impede the rescue work going on after Hurricane Katrina in August of 2005, and thus flew over New Orleans rather than stopping to demonstrate his concern. Katrina haunted him till the end

  • LLWS Wrap0

    I want to congratulate my friends at Little League International. The 2023 Little League World Series was off the charts. Thanks for another great experience.

    Pond Fishing0

    It’s no secret that I love fishing — fishing of all kinds — with a variety of equipment, and in a variety of situations. Certainly, our local rivers, streams, and lakes are high on my priority list, but I also enjoy an afternoon on a pond from time to time. There are a number of

    As parents, it’s imperative that you play an active role in your child’s health and wellness in a positive way, especially when it comes to sports. In today’s youth sports culture, where the focus is on getting better, stronger, and faster to play at higher levels, it’s easy to lose sight of what’s best for

  • The Roving Sportsman… Fall Food Plots0

    Where has the time gone? Summer seems to have slipped away as August is ending, and on September 23, fall officially begins! Several weeks ago, I did plant a fall blend of seeds to create several food plots for deer. The mix included wheat, rye, oats, winter peas, crimson clover, radish, collard, turnip, beets, and

  • Fall Finds & Outfit Planning0

    I find with most things in life, it’s best to be prepared. But, for reasons seemingly beyond my control, I’m always shocked by how quickly the next to-do item, activity, event, project, season, or school year looms before me.

  • Cuba Comes to the LLWS0

    Maybe it’s me, but I was surprised and a little astounded at the seemingly underwhelming response to the presence of a Little League team from Cuba playing at the Little League World Series for the first time. The 8,000 fans on hand enjoyed the tight 1-0 game, a loss to Japan, but the fact that

  • A Kid’s August Christmas0

    Most parents will remember the moment of their child’s first few Christmas experiences. Their anticipation, excitement, and pure wide-eye joy when they awoke and saw the treasures Santa Claus had left under the tree. As they grew older, Christmas was still a special occasion, but it didn’t have that magic aura of their younger years.

  • Classic Memories0

    This will be the sixth MLB Little League Classic. No. I did not score a ticket. No worries. I have already been there and done that. I was in the stands for a few, and they were simply fantastic. But the games I remember were the ones from the outside. Those experiences were great, and

  • The Snapping Turtle: A Living Submarine0

    For some unknown reason, I have always been captivated by things that crawl, swim and slither. None of my siblings seem to have been smitten with my affection for such critters, and my interest has not waned over the years. It seems that my grandchildren, however, have inherited some of my curiosity with a number

    Before you even ask, no! I’m not talking about having a drink in the shower, even though I’ve been known to enjoy a shower beer after a day at the beach.

  • Play Ball!

    Play Ball!0

    Every year, I mention that I think of the Little League World Series as the unofficial end of summer. Normally, I see that unofficial end coming, but I’ve got to be honest: it’s really snuck up on me this year. I can’t remember the last time that summer has felt so short! But, since this
