School in many communities is now back in session, which signifies to me that summer is coming to an end. It's been a pretty good summer. I kicked it off with a fishing trip and just recently officially ended my summer with a fishing trip. In the middle, I mixed in a couple camping trips to Clarks Fork, Lake Pardee, and even scouted out some future camping spots. Just like when I was a kid, the summer seemed to fly right by and now it's time to get back to work. Going into each summer I usually have ...

A lot of owners spend huge amounts of money on radio systems, wakeboard towers, downriggers, power poles, and other luxury items on their boats.

In the past 10 years or more suspender type life jackets have become popular amongst boaters. Most them are designed to automatically inflate once submerged in water. The ...

Breaking The Cycle

DEAR DIDI: We have a six-month-old male pit that we rescued from the shelter about three months ago. He is such a wonderful and sweet dog that we love to death. We have one issue though.
