Lady Ashley Jones, of Mansfield, GA, managed to use a crossbow and get an arrow into a 9 foot 3 inch Gator early Saturday morning all with a broke arm! The entire event was photographed by a TV production company. This was her first time Gator Hunting.

September 1, at 5pm, I became 81 years old. I was born in Faceville about a quarter-mile from the Old Country Store. The first 6 months of my life I near starved to death. Nothing they gave me would stay on my stomic. Old Dr. Willis made house calls in the county after making his rounds in town. Second trip he made to mother, he brought a can of Eagle Brand Milk. That was what they fed me until I was able to eat table food. I still love Eagle Brand Milk. I forgot to tell you that I had to have 4 skin cancers cut off and one burnt off.

Bream, Shellcrackers, Crappie and Catfish has been the fish this week again. There has been many limits of each made except Catfish and there is no limit on Catfish. Lots of folks ate good fresh fish from Seminole this week. Crickets for Bream, Wigglers for Shellcrackers, Catfish Minnows and Jigs for Crappie. I must add that in the past 10 days, there has been sited many Mayflies.
