Area bass hunters too often fall into a routine on fishing trips, and follow the same tactics time after time. One problem that too many have is that they get hooked on wood, and fish it to the exclusion of all other types of structure. There's nothing wrong with fishing wood many times. Largemouths like fallen trees extending out into a lake, or stumps, logs, and drowned brush, and I've caught many a bass around them. If there's a problem it's that every bass angler knows wood is good, and they're going to hit any woody shoreline around. I fished a lake a couple of years ago, got there at dawn, worked a very nice shoreline with lots of wood and picked up four bass on a worm and pig and jig. Then other anglers started launching their bass boats or small craft, and the first headed immediately for that shoreline. He might have caught one or two. Then another worked it, and another, and once I saw two boats waiting patiently for their turn to cover the stretch. They had to see all of the others that were there before them, but they were going to cast wood. Or else. If you've fallen into that deep carved rut, I'd like to offer three words that will certainly improve your luck, "docks and rocks." I've been fishing a good sized private lake, about a hundred acres, for long years, and while I might try a downed tree or two along its length, eventually I head for a section of riprap shoreline a half mile or so from the launch ramp. The landowner there laid down an 80-yard section of pale gray limestone rocks along his shore to prevent erosion, and the rocks stretch out along the bottom for about five yards. More important, the water drops off very quickly to 10-foot depths off the riprap.

cashby@norwalkreflector.com Huron County Common Pleas Judge Jim Conway issued an arrest warrant Thursday for an Indiana man who didn't show up for his plea hearing. Conway asked Huron County Assistant Public Defender David Longo about the whereabouts of his client, South Bend resident Neal Williams, 46. Longo said Williams and his ride got lost on the way to Norwalk, somehow ending up near Indianapolis, and ended up returning home. He noted Williams had been staying in Mansfield at one point while the case was pending. The attorney got word that his client had an alternate plan of catching a bus early Wednesday morning, but apparently overslept. Longo suggested the court not issue an arrest warrant and schedule a plea hearing for Monday, in hopes the state won't accuse Williams of "skipping his bond."

news@norwalkreflector.com Jeremy Holmberg faces up to 34 years in prison after a Huron County jury found him guilty of two counts of kidnapping, one count of aggravated burglary and one count of robbery. Holmberg, 27, of New London, may get less than the maximum when he is sentenced on Nov. 5, but will get a "substantial" prison sentence, Huron County Prosecutor Russell Leffler said. "When you've committed as many crimes as Jeremy Holmberg has over the years, why should society take any more chances?" Leffler said. Holmberg was on parole when he and accomplices broke into the rural Greenwich home of April Spain and Brandon Taft. "He'd been out a week and he was recruiting people" to commit crimes, Leffler said.

This Norwalk couple currently lives in northern Africa. While befriending the people there, they are teaching English and training others to teach English. He also helps the locals drill wells in search of water. We are not naming the two for security reasons. They are partially funded by the Geotrac Foundation. This is the fourth in a series of articles about their lives in Africa. Chicken soup for a cold. Peppermint tea for an upset stomach. Honey in tea for a sore throat. Flat ginger ale for nausea. Or Grammy Nadine's specialty: tea and whiskey. Everyone has at least two cents to give when it comes to illness and home remedies. Some have more than two cents to add, like our dear friends who have an essential oil for every possible calamity. I personally can attest to the fact that cold, stale ginger ale helps a nauseous stomach calm down. I have a friend whose obsession with Nyquil when he's sick can probably be traced back to early doses of whiskey at his Grammy Nadine's house. What about a warm Coke, taken as fast as possible, to help relieve menstrual cramps? Or how about fresh lime juice and garlic for a fever, or for diarrhea?
