  • Fishing around a busy schedule


    J Ramsey took a little time off last Friday from his regular job as a sales consultant at Don Franklin Family of Dealerships to do a little fishing on Green River Lake. Ramsey claims to be on the lake for about six hours and caught and released several fish. The drum he said weighed 10-12 pounds, the biggest largemouth was between 5 1/2 and 6 pounds and the smallmouth was close to 6 pounds. All were caught on a crankbait shallow. The fish were pulled up pre-spawn, waiting for the water to be the right temperature so they can start working on beds.

  • Water plant project will cost millions

    Fixing a sludge problem at the city’s Water Treatment Plant will ultimately cost the city millions of dollars.
