Tax plan is a cut for everyone
Whenever I'm asked if the Trump tax cut is for the rich, I say yes. It is a tax cut for the rich. It is a tax cut for the middle class. It is a tax cut for small businesses. It is a tax cut for the Fortune 100. If you pay federal income taxes, you will, in almost all cases, be getting more take-home pay come Jan. 1.

Fish like a GIRL
I suppose I am finally old enough to say that - "kids these days." As anglers we often marvel at how "easy" kids have it today in the sport of fishing. With the advent of the internet, ever-improving electronics and YouTube videos covering every bait and technique, it can easily be said that it is much easier to learn new things and to more quickly understand our fiercest competitors, the fish.

A letter to fellow Americans
To the Editor:

Dear Americans,
