Just got the bad news Monday afternoon about former superintendent Mark Koca who passed away in a Springfield hospital Monday. His family will make arrangements Tuesday at Bland-Hackleman according to Brent Bland. Our condolences to the family. Mark was always fair to me and the newspaper. He had a dry sense of humor so you
Spring turkey season started Monday morning without Davis and me. I didn’t feel like walking, he thought it was too cold. That, and he broke a spring on his shotgun a year ago and didn’t bother to have it fixed. A lot of years ago I didn’t have a turkey gun or more than one

How do I get a mulligan? Do I just ask for one? What if one is given to me because I really need to do something over? Here’s why. Drex Salazar called me last week and said there was a faux pas in my article about the new stuff at the golf course. I had
It just occurred to me that maybe I should clarify a statement I wrote last week. I said an animal lives with me. I hope everyone knew I meant Caddee. Speaking of said animal, I have been told not to let Caddee outside if there is a possum in the neighborhood. Well, you know possums.
