Keeping that in mind, Mrs. Ruth Lambert, age 90, had a birthday last week. She lives northeast of Bainbridge on Lambert Road. Congrats on making it to 90. Her mother-in-law, kin it me, made it to 102. Many more.

One boat Friday got deep into the hybreds and loaded the boat, they had close to 20 up to 6 pounds each.

A littning storm and rain shook up the water and it seem to have muddyed the Flint some more.

Mr. Earl Elkins went Saterday and did good on catfish so did a Lownds County boat. Boat sed they left them biting.
