From The Bench - Small Claims – Big Headache

Why is Court so complicated? I just feel the frustration ooze out of the small claims litigants. Most folks who sue in small claims court sue on "principle" and firmly believe that they are in the right. The judge, however, must follow the substantive law. In small claims court, it is the legal procedures that have been modified or set aside to give folks easier access to the Courts.

Fishing Report

I almost hate to mention that spring is almost here, but it is! I'm already seeing some early signs.

Another sign to me is having daylight after 5 p.m. Like most changes in seasons, it happens before most people realize. I'm still hoping for a few solid days of rain or even an early spring cold spell, but judging from the past couple of days, who knows what's going to happen? I ...

Tight Lines - Super Bowl Fishing

While I am a pretty good football fan, once my local teams have been eliminated from the quest for the Super Bowl, I'd rather go fishing than watch some other teams spar in the Super Bowl. If you stop and think about it, there are almost always no crowds out on the water on Super Bowl Sunday. You've got the lake or stream pretty much to yourself.
