The shadgraph began to throb. The vibration in the rod tip showed a vibrato you could throw a bluegill through. Then it hit the dips-a left dip, a right dip, a double deep dip. I reeled the rod tip underwater about three inches and performed a perfect elbows up. The elbows up are a maneuver designed to sink the hook deep in the tough upper jaw of a Rockfish.

LEBANON -- A short pursuit early Thursday, July 6 by Lebanon Police led to the arrest of two men who now face charges involving the use of alcohol.
The incident occurred shortly before 6 a.m. as Patrolman Justin Butler reported he saw a vehicle driven by Timothy White, 50, of Lebanon leave 430 West Main Street and then failed to yield at a stop sign at South Tarver and West Spring Street.
Butler turned on his siren and blue lights as the suspect vehicle ran the stop sign and turned left onto Pennsylvania Avenue. The officer informed the police dispatcher that the car was not stopping. The car ran a stop sign at Pennsylvania Avenue at Leeville Pike where it collided with another vehicle traveling westbound on Leeville.
