  • Ramsey brings in huge cat at City Lake

     

    J. Ramsey has caught more than his share of fish — throughout the state and south.
    But, on Friday afternoon, he caught a huge flathead catfish (just under 50 pounds) within a half-mile of his home at City Lake, where he still fishes at least four times a week.

    Ramsey, 27, used a spinning rod and a bass crank bait to make the catch. It weighed just under 50 pounds.

  • Proud of Taylor County

     

    Taylor Countians are pretty lucky.

    There are three specific examples I can give you of this happening just in the past few days.

    First, a committee of people put together last Friday night's annual Relay for Life events to raise money to fight cancer.

  • Coming up short, but still fighting cancer

    I made a challenge for myself, and as badly as I hate to say it, I failed.

    As Taylor County's annual Relay for Life event kicked off on Friday evening, I had set a goal for myself to walk 100 laps around the high school track to raise money in memory of my friend and co-worker, James Roberts, who died of cancer last year.

    The money-raising efforts were supported by many of you, either in the form of a donated amount or in the form of a pledge made for each lap I walked.
