A couple of columns back I wrote about starting to shoot more .44 magnums and even enjoying it. As most of you know, the .44 magnum is considered a dual purpose cartridge in that it is shot in both revolvers and carbines. The carbines are often referred to as PCCs, meaning pistol-caliber car…
It all came down to the last race. For the first time, at least as far back as the record books go, the Cody girls swim team could nab a second-place state finish. To do it, it’d have to swim past Powell, a team that had beaten the Fillies each time they met this season.

As this Veteran’s Day on Nov. 11 rolls around, I’m reminded that although there’s a lot of lovely talk on the media and by a variety of civilians on the street in support of our veterans from all branches of service, for much of our population those emotions are not only short-lived, but muc…

A couple of columns back, I related an experience I had with a huge bird of prey that had invaded my space and that I couldn’t identify, remember? Well, I finally tracked it down or rather, saw it again by chance. Actually, it wasn’t the same bird, but one of its cousins, no doubt.
