    When we left up at the lake on Sunday morning the wind was bad and there was waves white capping and that makes for a bad day to go swimming even for a good swimmer. I hate to hear about a drowning of any kind, thats to me a really bad way to die but there is probably no such a thing as a good way.

    I, too, lost a good childhood friend to drowning years ago. He jumped into a small river to retrieve his pocketknife. His hair tangled in bottom snag. Another friend almost drowned when he jumped into the rapids of a creek and was pulled into a cavity under a rock by the swift current.

    We always have a tendency to underestimate the power of current and dangers of a waterway. We also tend to overestimate our strength and swimming ability. A word of warning to the younger members...

    Just heard that someone else drowned in the Scioto, in Ross county.
    Everyone be careful and safe while fishing.
