  • Anxiety is a dark companion. The Apostle Paul, writing to Roman Christians about his struggles in living the Christian life says, “When I want to do right, evil lies close at hand” (Romans 7:21). While this refers specifically to the sin nature that is still present in every child of God, one common manifestation of this is anxiety and worry. For most people anxiety is close at hand, lurking in the shadows. It is easily provoked, and with much difficulty is it dealt with.

    Anderson County School Superintendent Andrew Bird caught a 4 1/4 pound white bass in April 1963 at Herrington Lake. Believing it to be noteworth, he sent the information to a contest in a sport’s magazine.
    Sure enough in the latest edition of Field and Stream his name appears as wining in the Fresh Water Open Division No. 2, with an 8-pound test line and with the use of a live minnow as bait. The contest was open to fishermen in the United States and Canada.
