Kids Fishing Day Was a Success – Congratulations to Organizers

Working at the radio station I heard a lot about Kids Fishing Day but I told my coworkers, “No way I’m taking my kids fishing with 1,200 other kids!” But as luck would have it, my kids asked to play at the Playground of Dreams that same day, so we ran into the event. I WAS SO IMPRESSED! It was awesome and my kids were really sad we weren’t there to fish!

Where Are the Best Places to Shoot Guns in the Mid-Columbia?

Who else remembers going to the shooting range with their dad at eleven years old? I do. We would head down to Hole in the Wall and he would show me how to use his Glock -- or sometimes we would head out to Badger Canyon and up into the hills to find a nice spot to unleash the double barrel on an old broke-down computer monitor we didn't need anymore. Needless to say they were good times and great bonding moments with my father. Now I'd like to take my kids out to a good range and show them how to shoot too, but the times have changed. Where are the best places to go shooting and take your family?
