Larry Fox, president and CEO of Fox Distributing in Shelby, poses by items that once sat the desk of his father, C.L. Fox. Larry keeps them displayed prominently because they remind him of his father, who he ran Fox Distributing alongside for 25 years.

There has been something on my mind lately. Multiple people have asked me what I thought was wrong with NASCAR. While I do continue to follow the sport, cover events, I do still want to be positive about it since I have a lot of respect for those for who do that line of work and those friends of mine who are in the business.

This time of year I always try catching some pan fish. I really enjoy this slow, unhurried outdoor activity. It's especially good after managing the deadlines of deer and turkey seasons, and an occasional bass tournament. There are no seasons for bluegill and crappie. If today is unsuccessful maybe I'll go tomorrow; or maybe not. And there is nothing like fried fish from these varieties. Yes, fried.
