By Anne Weaver

ABOUT APRIL 1, 1966, the Hamilton County Cancer Crusade would get underway in April and continue into May. Ten town chairmen and about 60 volunteers would make the usual house-to-house canvass. It was urged that a warm welcome be given all of them, together with generous support.

By Dick Nelson

The first of April has always been a day for trout fishermen and fools, and sometimes it isn't easy to separate one from the other, especially on opening day. But it's difficult getting into a trout fishing frame of mind with two to three feet of ice on the lakes and morning air temperatures hovering around freezing.

By Dick Nelson

It seems Old Man Winter doesn't want to let go though, as daytime temperatures struggle to get above freezing. But sooner or later he's going to release that icy grip and when that happens, trout fishermen will be out and about and turkey hunters will be scouring fields and forest searching for signs of the big-chested birds.
Of course, given the thickness of lake ice, the turkey seas ...
