But Lampley gave away their success secret.“We’re fishing with chicken livers, not worms … ugh,” she said.But there was more to Kids Fishing Day than baiting hooks and catching fish.“Those who stayed for lunch had an opportunity to win some really great prizes, including two bicycles that were given away in drawings,” Jinright said. “It was a fun day all around and we really appreciate John and Carol Dorrill letting us fish at their pond. Most everybody caught a stringer of fish and that makes fishing even more fun.”Walmart co-hosted Pike County Kids’ Fishing Day with the Alabama Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries Division and provided lunch for the participants. Walmart also donated the bicycles. The free fishing event was funded in part by the Federal Sport Fish Restoration program. Prizes for the event were provided by the Conservation Enforcement Officers Association.

By The Penny Hoarder Skip Go fish! Sponsored Content “We had a very good turnout for the free Kids’ Fishing Day this year,” Jinright said. “We had 68 kids who caught 170 catfish with a total weight of 223 pounds. The fish were biting and everyone seemed to have a good time.”Jinright said the Pike County Kids’ Fishing Day is an educational event that will hopefully get kids “hooked” on fishing.Youngsters Luke and Evan Deloney and their “Pawpaw” were fishing together. Pawpaw baited the hooks while the boys waited to hear the catfish “meow.”“This is a great place to bring kids fishing,” Jerry Deloney said of Clay Hill Farms. “Kids really enjoy fishing and it’s a good, fun way to spend time with them. We fish at several ponds and have even fished on the Conecuh River, but we really like it here and not just because the fish are biting.” The winner in each age division was determined by the total weight of their stringer of fish.Autumn Adamson won the five to seven age division with 10 fish weighing 16 pounds. Brianna Adkinson caught nine fish that weighed 12 pounds to take the prize in the age eight and nine division. The age 11-13 division champ was Haley Middlebrooks with 10 fish at 13 pounds.Pike County Conservation Officer Jerry Jinright congratulated the winners of the fishing competition as well as all of the boys and girls who came out to participate. He also expressed appreciation to the parents and other adults who spent a morning fishing with the children.

D’Angelo Russell’s injury overshadows Lakers’ 108-96 win over Pacers

first_imgLOS ANGELES >> Normally, their presence sparks cheers as D’Angelo Russell and Nick Young make dramatic shots.Russell usually reacts by pointing to the apparent ice in his veins, while Young holds out three fingers. But this time, Russell and Young elicited collective gasps as they winced in pain.Injuries to Russell and Young overshadowed everything else in the Lakers’ 108-96 victory over the Indiana Pacers on Friday at Staples Center, even if the result snapped a five-game losing streak.One injury remains uncertain. The Lakers diagnosed Russell with both a mild MCL sprain in his right knee and strained right calf. He did return after playing for just over a minute, and is scheduled to have an MRI on Saturday. The other injury does not seem as serious. Young hyperextended his left knee midway through the second quarter after the knee appeared to lock up as he drove toward the free throw line. Young eventually stood up to the ground and limped toward the locker room. But after x-rays came back negative, Young returned for the second half and made a handful of shots.The Lakers mostly depended on Lou Williams (27 points), Brandon Ingram (15 points, seven rebounds), Julius Randle (16 points) and Jordan Clarkson (12 points). But while posting 15 points on 5-of-13 shooting, Young was still part of the Lakers’ lineup that opened the second half with a 18-6 run. Young also threw a rare assist before playing air guitar. Young also made a 3-pointer that gave the Lakers an 86-75 lead entering the fourth quarter. The Lakers held onto the lead from there.The vibe surrounding Russell did not seem as positive.Video replays showed that Russell lost balance after accidentally running into Randle’s left foot as the pair ran a pick-and-roll play. Russell then fell awkwardly on his right knee.After remaining down on the court for several moments, Russell stood up on his own and walked to the Lakers’ training room with 10:48 left in the first quarter. Lakers veteran guard Jose Calderon played in Russell’s place after he went to the trainer’s room. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorcenter_img Russell, who missed 13 games this season because of soreness to his left knee, had a platelet-rich plasma injection to treat his left knee in late November. Considering his talent level as the Lakers’ No. 2 pick in the 2015 NBA Draft, Russell’s absence contributed toward the Lakers struggling with consistency after a 10-10 start to open the 2016-17 season.Russell has averaged 14.8 points and 4.5 assists while shooting 39.6 percent from the field in 27 minutes per game this season. Though he reported shaking off rustiness from his absence earlier this month, Russell has struggled in the past week. He has averaged 7.8 points and 2.8 assists while shooting 34.8 percent from the field in 19.8 minutes over the past five games, while also sitting out the fourth quarter of Tuesday’s loss to Denver.Just like then, the Lakers played without relying on Russell. This time, however, the Lakers managed just fine.last_img read more
