Replacement refs: NFL deserves penalty for arrogance

Sometimes you put a foot down wrong and don't find out for a week or two that you actually dislocated a hip. That's how it's going to be if the NFL sticks with its plan to start the regular season with replacement referees - from mild annoyance to major pain to humongous regret. And all because the people in charge are too used to getting their way.

As you may be aware, I have more than a passing interest in politics. Now you may be asking yourself "What's that have to do with fishing, hunting and other outdoor pursuits?" The answer is "Almost everything." Whether you want to legalize mountain lion hunting because there are too many lions and attacks on women and children are becoming common, or if you want more trout planted in your favorite stream, the answers you get are part of a political process.

Encounters with critters

In the last few weeks, I have read news articles about a possible mountain lion sighting in the community of Mountain House, west of Tracy, about a moose whose antlers were caught in a backyard swing set in northern Utah, and about a Boy Scout leader who was attacked by a rabid beaver while swimming in New York State.

Floatfishing valley rivers

It seems that as each year passes our daily lives get more hectic and complicated. Along with such increased pressures, it becomes increasingly important for me to find ways to relieve the pressure. Heck, we probably all need to get away from it all slow down our pace, and take the time to relax, contemplate, and recharge our batteries. I have found nothing more relaxing than floatfishing our valley rivers.

Pistorius revolutionizes Olympic notions

LONDON (AP) - There are times when history only becomes clear with hindsight and others - rarer, more goose-bumpy - when you actually feel it being made. Oscar Pistorius revolutionizing our notions of what is possible with every clink, clink of his prosthetic legs on the London Olympic running track was one such moment.
