Trout Season Opens

Trout Season

Big news for fishing fanatics – this Saturday marks the opening of Trout Season at Santee Lakes.  According to the schedule, 2,000 trout will be stocked for opening day, with more added regularly through the season (last scheduled stocking on 3/13/09)

One of the best things about Santee Lakes is that state fishing licenses are not required!  Adults can fish for just $8 per day and kids (15 and under) for just $5, or you can get an annual permit for just $50 – talk about a deal.  So grab those poles and head on out to the Lakes for some good family fun.

Political Clean-Up Time

It’s only a few days after the election – probably one of the most heavily-promoted of lateley – and I’m very pleased to see that many of the signs are already down.  Below are some Before-and-After pictures from a couple of the most posted locations around town.  I want to encourage all of the candidates, supporters, proposition pro or con groups, etc., to do the right thing and get those signs down.

So where do political signs go after the election?  Well, not all of them go quietly, nor do they all go completely away, as you can see below.

Okay, folks, let’s make sure these are taken care of as well.  I will be checking around town beginning next week and I will be listing candidates and propositions that have signs still up.  If anyone would like to send me their own list, I would be happy to include it.  The campaign is over, time to clean up Santee.
