Cobia imageCobia Today ... Tricia and I celebrated our 28th wedding anniversary yesterday on into the night. I had every intention of sleeping in today and not fishing. The dang cat decided I was not sleeping in and when I checked my phone there was a text from Wes Blow. He was fishing with Rob Wittman again and they had already caught 8 cobia. Now awake, I threw some rods in the truck, grabbed some eels and drove over to the boat. (See Page 2, July 23 2015 Edition) (Have a Comment?)

Feel imageFeel Good All Summer Long! ... For many, making better-for-you food decisions and staying physically active go hand in hand with maintaining a quality lifestyle. According to an article published by the Mayo Clinic, those who engage in regular physical activity enjoy the benefits of improved mood, more energy, better sleep and much more. For consumers who want to maintain healthy lifestyles, the NuVal® Nutritional Scoring System, which is found in grocery stores across the U.S., is easy to use for identifying summer snacks and meal items to energize fitness activities. "Consumers deserve to get the most nutritional bang for their buck,” says Mike Nugent, NuVal General Manager. "That’s why NuVal scores were developed — to support healthy lifestyles. The scores analyze the nutrition facts on food labels boiling them down to a single 1 to 100 score. With 100 being the most nutritious, higher scores mean better nutrition, allowing consumers to make at-a-glance nutrition comparisons as they shop.” (See Page 12, July 23 2015 Edition) (Have a Comment?)
