Better Protection For Airplanes

The House approved legislation this week that would increase penalties for anyone intentionally pointing a laser beam at a traveling aircraft in North Carolina. An offender of this crime would now be guilt of a felony rather than a misdemeanor if the bill becomes law. The measure, Senate bill 428, has returned to the Senate for concurrence. Federal research has shown laser illuminations can temporarily disorient or disable a pilot during critical stages of flight. The Patriot Act, which was passed by Congress, already makes it a federal crime.

Hello fellow fisherman,

Did you know that 16% of the U.S. population goes fishing at least 16 days a year?

Did you also know that over 75% of the nations fishermen do not fish during "prime time"; fish feeding hours?

Those precious few moments before twilight can be absolutely magical. Even up until 11pm at night, the largest predators of any species feed ravenously.

Don't believe me? Check out Daniel Eggertsen's story, and a picture of a couple of his catches here : "Evening Secrets plus more"

I want you to do me a favor and try it out so I can see what you think of it, and if it works for you as well as it did for me.

You will be one of the first to try it out.

Gone Fishin',

Neil
