Someone asked me once "What's your favorite kind of hunting?" and I had to reply, "A type I've not done in a long time." Which is true. I've hunted mule deer, pheasants and prairie chickens in South Dakota, whitetails in five or six states, squirrels and rabbits in multiple states and more. But my absolute favorite hunting quarry is bobwhite quail, and I haven't done it in years. Back when I was a kid in southern Ohio, it was routine to go rabbit hunting in rugged hill country and put up several coveys over a morning. It was great fun because they'd hide in grass or fallen leaves and suddenly between one step and the next, small brown birds would explode all around heading in every direction. I was always surprised and often flock shot the covey, missing every one most times, until I learned to pick out a single bird, lead it, and usually make a hit.

Suicide. Can someone please tell me what we are doing wrong as parents and a society that would make our children and our friends' children kill themselves?

This past summer a "Native American" wedding took place in our area and was described as the first one in northern Ohio in 200 years. Here is one more opportunity given me to render a contrary opinion. Actually, I've learned not to describe something as the first, last, oldest, newest, largest or smallest unless I know absolutely and without a doubt that it is a pure fact. The facts of the case are that almost a century ago several American Indians gathered at Rye Beach west of Huron for a wedding based on their tribal traditions. The chief of this group was Thunderwater, who had a cottage at Rye Beach built "in the Indian style", whatever that was. He was from Cleveland, and estimated that at least 12 Indian families lived there.

Parents often focus on major milestones in their child's development. The baby steps that we see such as crawling, walking and talking are not always the most important. Your child is developing specific movements of small muscles, which are mostly found in the hands, called fine motor skills. Starting at birth, your baby is beginning to work on fine motor development. This development is vital to an infant's ability to experience and learn about the world around him or her. There are many activities to build fine motor skills that can be incorporated in your child's everyday routines and activities. Newborns naturally have a reflex in their hands. Infants often keep a tight fist and will grasp at an object placed in their hand without knowing. As your baby grows, he or she will be able to grasp an object that is within reach. For early toddlers, playing a simple game of filling up and dumping out toys from a container can help with fine motor as well as cognitive skills.
