The Worst Angle on Fishing

The Worst Angle on Fishing



By Jim Robinson



One Friday night after supper when I was seventeen, I announced, "Mother, I'm going fishing in the morning out at White Rock Lake." "Oh, let me come along, please; I won't be any trouble and would love to spend some time with you." she pleaded. "You can show me how to catch the 'big ones'."



She made sense. Since my part-time job had begun at the local variety store, we really hadn't had much of a chance to catch up with… Continue

When Jim McLaughlin shot Pat Devlin the summer of 1860 from between two buildings half a block north of Colorado Avenue along what is today 28th Street, a crowd started to gather. Devlin was on the ground apparently mortally wounded, and Laughlin just stood there with the shotgun that did the deed.



Someone - it was probably James Garvin -… Continue

A sinking feeling at 4 a.m.

A sinking feeling at 4 a.m.



by Jim Robinson





I did some research by utilizing a computer search engine before I wrote this and I found out some interesting information; amazing actually. During the decade (1960-1970), there were over 79 million water beds bought in America. In fact, by the mid-sixties, the water bed was considered in some circles to be a status symbol. When I was a teenager, I had a memorable experience that taught me to never sleep in my… Continue

Money Coach Corner - Financial Advice for Military



Two of my Marine Corps colleagues have asked me to pass along information to our buddies in the Army and Air Force. The subject is the military retirement program. It used to be that a veteran of 20 years would receive 50% of his/her highest salary. That was reduced for those joining after 1980 to 50% of the highest three-year average. To reduce spending, in 1986 the Pentagon introduced a new program, REDUX. Under REDUX, after 15 years a veteran… Continue
