Fishing Report

When I was growing up, a few houses down from us lived an older retired gentleman and his wife. He was known in the neighborhood for his luxurious garden and often would deliver fresh fruits and vegetables throughout the neighborhood. He was a man of very few words. My first impression of him was that he was a grumpy old man, "I was a teenager at the time." Like most families this time of year, a major yard clean-up day gets put on the to-do list. My family was no different. As we spent a better part of the day ...

2016 Racing Season

The NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series looks to have some major exciting improvements for this season. First, and foremost, is the new TV deal with FOX Sports.

Fishing Report

Just when I was starting to imagine our lakes being full and our launch ramps being within walking, not hiking, distance from the parking lot, I read somewhere that we're not even close to filling up our local lakes. I'm not sure if that's something they're saying so that we don't get our hopes up, or if it's an actual fact? Like a lot of you, it's hard to believe that we won't have enough water. The fact of the matter is that lake levels can be deceiving. The water in one ...

Lady Mustangs Drop OT Hoops Thriller

The heartbreak of the Oakdale High School Lady Mustangs varsity basketball season continued this past week. Senior center Emery Sipe was sidelined with an undisclosed knee injury for the team's 59-55 overtime loss to visiting Weston Ranch on Tuesday night, Feb. 2. The missed presence of Sipe to an already banged up team who lost fellow senior Scarlett Brock to a torn meniscus a few weeks back, showed as the depleted team could not complete what would have been an amazing comeback.
