Thinking About Notre Dame

16 Apr , 2019  

From 1808Delaware Publisher Thomas Palmer:

When I was in my early 20s, I had occasion to live in Europe for almost two years. More specifically, I lived in France. During my time there I lived in several different locations, but the majority of that time I spent in Paris or its suburbs. More…

Fish For Free

13 Apr , 2019  

It is the only weekend all year when those 16 years old or older are not required to obtain a fishing license to fish in the state’s public waters.

“Ohio has world-class fishing, and our free fishing weekend is a great opportunity to experience what the state has to offer,” said Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine. “I invite Ohioans to take some time to get outside with family and friends to enjoy our wonderful natural resources.”

The Division of Wildlife’s six fish hatcheries stocked more than 44 million sport fish in public waters in 2018, including walleye, saugeye, steelhead, rainbow trout, brown trout, muskellunge, channel catfish, blue catfish and hybrid striped bass, which will provide opportunities for the estimated 1.3 million Ohio anglers.
