Dick Biggs (a young and spry 89) of Carson City is now back home after spending several days in Carson Tahoe Hospital with some stomach problems.
He is recovering nicely and is chomping at the bit to get back out to Topaz Lake for some trout fishing.
Give him at call at 882-2750 and wish him well.
Big game hunters: Remember that Monday, Apr. 17 at 5 p.m. is the final deadline for receiving applications for Nevada big game hunting tags for all of the 2006 seasons.
Elaine Quilici of Carson City might want to attend a Wildlife Identification 101 Course, after last Sunday.
