When I attempted to catch a world-record cubera snapper several years ago, I had to cut down the butt of a Sabre rod so I could place the fulcrum at my waist. I also used a graphite two-speed reel to lighten the load. I found the smallest harness and rod belt available and further modified it to snugly wrap my 5-foot-1 frame.
When New York Became the U.S. Media Capital by Maury Klein
When did newspapers become "the press," capable of not only reporting events but shaping them as well? That development could not occur without an advance in technology-the invention of the telegraph-and it also required the emergence of cheap newspapers capable of reaching a mass readership. The "penny papers" made their appearance during the 1830s, the telegraph a decade later. The symbiotic relationship of these two elements created "the press," and their convergence in New York made that city the media capital of the nation.

SOUTH HILL - Books read in childhood can often leave a lasting impression. For South Hill resident Becci Crowe, the book "Among the Elephants" left her dreaming of traveling the world.
Her first dream trip came in 1995 with a trip to Africa.
"Before we left we were planning our return," Crowe said.
Crowe and her husband, Mark, have since made several five trips to different African locales, including Botswana, Zimbabwe, Namibia and most recently Rwanda.
The Rwanda trip gave Crowe a chance to get up close and personal with several groups of Mountain Gorillas as well as observe the great migration in the Serengeti.
