Rick Bramwell: Farewell to one of fishing's all-time greats


Amid reports that a few small black morels were being found in Central Indiana, I headed for the woods Tuesday evening. There was no green and little sign of life. I walked to a creek crossing and found a nice set of buck tracks. I jumped to the far bank and took the deer trail uphill.

In the back of the woods, silence was broken. A flock of crows were pestering a bared owl. The predator, turned prey, was not going to get any peace until the crows went to roost. It is difficult to express, but I needed to see and hear this malaise of nature.

The morels are coming and with them some fun activities. Simply Music, Simply Mushrooms, Morel Festival is being held at the Bill Monroe Memorial Music Park and Campground in Bean Blossom from April 18 through April 20.

That same weekend, you might choose instead to attend the Second Annual Morchella Festival at the Grateful Goat Vinyard in Palmyra.

The big yellows should be up for the Mansfield Village Mushroom Festival and Car Show on April 27 and 28.

The last hope may be at The Morel Mushroom Festival at Brown County State Park in Nashville on May 4.

Should the Pacers match Portland's offer sheet to center Roy Hibbert?

Yes, Hibbert is important to the team and the community
No, four years and $58 million is too much
Not sure, I like Hibbert but think the money could be better spent elsewhere
