Food for Thought: A Third Political Party Emerging on Apathy

I say the time is ripe for a third political party. With no visible political difference between the Republican and the Democrat Parties, it's time to make the decision for the good of the country. There is a vast demographic out there just waiting to be tapped. And what better banner to gather these folks under, than the...

Camp Cookin' in The Outdoors

Like many veteran sportsmen, I’m an avid camp cook. I love to transform the fruits of my hunting and fishing trips into tasty meals, at camp and back at home. Scheduling time for camp cookin' into a busy hunting or fishing trip can be tough. After all, hunting or fishing is the primary reason for...

FINDING YOUR WAY in the Outdoors

At one time or another, most of us that spend time in the outdoors get a bit “turned around;” not necessarily lost, just a bit disoriented as to the direction back to camp or the boat ramp or that remote tree stand. For a couple of decades, I made my living...

THE WATCHMAN: De Blasio - Functional Leader or Socialist?

Let’s examine a few facts about Mayor De Blasio. After winning the election as Mayor of New York City, he pledged to improve economic opportunities in minority and working class neighborhoods and stopped abuses under the Police Department’s stop-and-frisk policy. By doing this, he tied the hands of the police in many ways. De Blasio also called for a tax increase on the wealthy to pay for...

Around The Table: Mighty Magnesium

Our kitchen table seems to reflect so much about us. Maybe yours is clean and only used for meals, but ours seems to be the family gathering place. It's the spot we gravitate to when friends and family pop in and we reflexively offer something to drink (tea, coffee, lemonade, water) while soaking up their company. There are...

Walk with Bob: THE PERFECT EXCUSE

Luther T. was a below average salesman and had an excuse for everything he did or did not do. People would attend our meetings just to hear his latest excuse. His excuses were complex, creative and well crafted. He was a master of excuse presentation. Here are several of my favorites:

THE OUTDOORS: BEST PLACE TO “CONNECT” 

While dragging a Texas rigged plastic worm through some heavy submerged brush at one of my long-time friend’s 30-acre lake in east Texas, joking and laughing with three other great friends, I came to the realization that I am a very wealthy man!

THE WATCHMAN: Who is spewing and spreading hate?

Who is spewing and spreading hate? Of course, that answer is easy to see. Just watch TV and see who are the ones having violent, destructive marches and trying to stop debate on the college campuses. It is the liberal left (i.e. the Democrat Party members). It is also being promoted and fueled by the liberal, biased mainstream media.

SUMMER FISHING IS FUN, BUT WATCH THE SUN!

Having spent a great majority of my life out in the elements, both summer and winter, I have learned, sometimes the hard way, how to prepare for the heat of summer and winter’s chill. For many years, I worked as a surveyor. These are the guys you see out...

CATFISHING PERFECT FOR YOUNGSTERS 

To my way of thinking, the channel catfish might just be the perfect fish for introducing youngsters to the sport of fishing, especially during the summer months. During a fishing trip last week on Lake Tawakoni with guide David Hanson, my daughter Ashley and two of her children proved this point to be spot on!
