A magnificent fish leads to streak of nice catches

Tangled Lines
patricks@lakevillejournal.com

So after a decade of mediocre results fly-fishing for trout in the Housatonic River I have finally started catching some nice ones.
It started on April 17. I had a couple hours to kill before a budget hearing, so I went down River Road in Cornwall and went in at one of the pull-offs that’s right by the road. (I’ve been informed since that this spot is known as “Push ’ Em Up.”)
Lots of big rocks and some deep pockets. The wading is tricky, so I just got myself perched in a spot where I wouldn’t be bothered on the back cast and started lobbing flies in.

Runners cross the finish line for Child Care Center

cynthiah@lakevillejournal.com

SHARON — Attendance was light and the mood somewhat subdued for the 27th annual Sharon Classic 5-mile Road Race to benefit the Child Care Center. The weather was cool and threatened to be damp, and while those conditions are often considered to be favorable for a run, they didn’t seem to fill area racers (and race watchers) with joy.
The record of 24:59 set last year by William Sanders remains unbroken. This year’s fastest time went to Joseph LeMay of Danbury, age 45, who finished in 27:34.
The top female finisher was 19-year-old Christie Choma of Sharon, who finished in 34:40.

asherp@lakevillejournal.com

SOUTH KENT — South Kent School (SKS) is known for its athletic program, especially its soccer, hockey and basketball teams (this school year the school’s soccer team won the New England title).
“We have a very strong boys basketball program, too,” said Owen Finberg, the school’s director of athletics and head soccer coach. “The team made the New England quarter finals but we were beat by one point and could not advance any further. A little disappointing end to the season.”
