Valley Home News Week of July 23, 2014

With our 2014 Stanislaus County Fair behind us and our State Fair in full swing we look at the commitment our FFA and 4-H families have. Much like our youth sports teams the commitment is huge and it is usually a total family commitment! With 4-Hers and FFA students the commitment is year round, and first involves learning about caring for the animals. Next comes hands on experience and attending judging events and project meetings. Then it's ownership. Another remarkable part of both FFA and 4-H is the dedication of great leaders and teachers! These teachers and leaders can ...

Free Fishing Day Is Saturday, July 5

The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) invites all Californians to celebrate summer by fishing this Saturday. July 5 is the first of two Free Fishing Days in 2014, when people can try their hand at fishing without having to buy a sport fishing license. Free Fishing Days are also a great opportunity for licensed anglers to introduce non-angling friends and children to fishing and the outdoors.

Summer Sessions Focus On Homeschooling Options

Homeschooling is a rewarding educational alternative. It is especially valuable for those families wanting to pass on their religious heritage, family values or personal beliefs to their children. Special needs or high achieving children who do not fit into a typical campus classroom benefit greatly from the one on one work at an individual pace.

Fishing Report

Summer time is top water fishing time for Bass. Catching Bass on a top water lure is one of the most exciting experiences in fishing. As exciting as it is, it also can be very difficult hooking up with a fish once it strikes. A common mistake anglers make when fishing with top water lures is setting the hook too early. Experienced anglers will tell you to wait until you feel the fish, but that's easier said than done. It took me several years and many hours on the water until I finally was able to wait on my ...

Fishing Report

To quote one of my favorite authors, Henry David Thoreau, "Man is rich in comparison to what he can let alone." I was reminded of that quote this past week as I was camping up at Clarks Fork. For those who have no idea where Clarks Fork is, it's roughly 60 miles above Sonora, located in the Stanislaus National Forest. Unlike my last camping trip, there's no WiFi or cell phone service. So, for four straight days it might as well have been 1985. It felt great not having to worry about checking emails, missed phone calls, and ...
