Belah riders compete for MotoCross World Series

Two Belah youth will travel to Texas this weekend to battle for a spot in the Word Series of Motocross.

Lincoln Horton, 8, and Noah Carr, 13, will both compete in the Youth South Central Regionals June 26-28 in Conroe, Texas for a chance to head to Tennessee for the World Series in Motocross racing.

“It would mean a lot to get to go there (Tennessee),” said Lincoln, who’s been riding a dirt bike since he was 3 years old. “I’ve only been racing (competitively) for about five months so that would be awesome.”

Lincoln attends Fellowship Elementary School and his parents are Matt and Jennifer Horton.

Noah has been riding since he was 2 years old and started competing two years ago and fell instantly in love.

Free fishing weekend set in Louisiana

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) invites you to take part in its annual Free Fishing Weekend on Saturday, June 13, and Sunday, June 14. Louisiana’s Free Fishing Weekend is an opportunity for residents and visitors to fish Louisiana waters without an otherwise required fishing license.

“Each year, we designate a weekend of free fishing as an incentive for families and friends to get outside and enjoy our beautiful Sportsman’s Paradise,” explained LDWF Secretary Jack Montoucet. “Whether your interest is saltwater or fresh, Louisiana offers some of the best and most diverse fishing opportunities in the world, and we welcome you to become part of the long-standing tradition of Louisiana fishing.”

While a fishing license is not required, all fishing regulations, including size, season, catch limits and gear restrictions will remain in effect during Free Fishing Weekend.

I never had a son

I never had a son

When I married and started a family, as a lover of all things outdoors I secretly hoped I’d become father to a little boy who I could watch follow in my footsteps learning to hunt and fish. It didn’t happen. Cathy came along first followed by Kayla.

As much as I wanted a boy, there is no way on God’s green Earth I could have been happier than watching these two do what little girls all pink and frilly do. Barbie Dolls, Betsy Wetsy, Donny Osmond, piano recitals as I watched them grow up to become beautiful and special young ladies both marrying quality young men.

But I never had a son.

Cathy and Kayla both wanted to please their outdoorsy dad and although they both gave it a good effort, Cathy even fighting a gag reflex as I coaxed her into hanging onto the hind legs of a squirrel I was skinning, it just wasn’t to be. I needed them to have a brother.
