Whats New When Sam Callaway of Corpus Christi boated this 13.34-lb. largemouth April 9 during a charity bass tournament at O.H. Ivie Lake in Texas, he felt certain he’d clinched the tourney’s big-bass check. What Calloway didn’t know was that he’d won a much bigger prize by catching the 500th fish in the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department’s Sharelunker program, an innovative project that promotes catch-and-release fishing and attempts to boost the size of the state’s trophy bass by entering the largest angler-caught fish into a selective breeding program. photos image

Benjamin was named the 2008-2009 winner of the Forward Arts Foundation’s Emerging Artist Award. He uses collage and sculpture to express his experiences as an African American as it relates to a world perspective.

In his most recent series, Benjamin’s sculptural works incorporate found and appropriated objects. The uniform black exteriors cause the shapes to converge and create dynamic abstract forms. The pieces are about rebirth and transformation. In the literal sense, the objects are given new life and transformed into sublime sculptural forms. The works speak about duality: past and future, tragedy and joy, abundance and lack. The objects are used as symbols that represent historical and personal events incorporating spiritual and mythological references.

lighting MY DAD AND I knew it was going to rain that day, but we didn't think much of it. The storm came up quick. It started pouring, and we put on our rain jackets. Before long, the rain stopped and the clouds broke. But then we saw lightning. The thunder rumbled closer, and I looked over at my dad and said, “That doesn't sound good.” We kept fishing our way back to the dock. I had actually just caught a small largemouth. I released the fish and went to cast. That's when everything went black. I was launched backward and landed in the backseat between the two consoles. When I came to, at first I didn't feel any pain. I just felt cold. Everything looked like a negative—colors were different, nothing looked like it should. It smelled like an electrical fire, the most vile smell. It still haunts me. I was in and out of consciousness. Then when I really came to, I felt like I was on fire. Everything was in slow motion. My muscles were all contracted and I couldn't move my legs. I didn't know where my dad was. I leaned over and saw a boat coming someone yelling that they were coming to get us. One of the men on the boat, andy, turned out to be an Iraq war veteran. He and his father had been fishing close by, and they pulled my dad out of the water. Andy kept talking to me. His dad called 911.

Rep. Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona has opened her eyes for the first time since being shot four days ago. "There is nothing I can say that will fill the sudden hole torn in your hearts," Obama said. "But know this: The hopes of a nation are here tonight." The attack killed six and left Giffords fighting for her life.

In between consoling those touched by Saturday's Arizona shooting and warning the nation against politicizing the tragedy, President Barack Obama delivered some good news in his address at a Tucson memorial event on Wednesday. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona has opened her eyes for the first time since being shot four days ago.

THE MAIN EVENT Stacking fishing rods in the corner of the garage is no way to treat expensive tackle. They can get tangled, fall over, and end up damaged. And they look messy, too.

This easy plan for a horizontal rod rack is your remedy. The rack accommodates four large rods and reels and is designed for wall mounting. This is a quick project—it might take you two hours—but can save many future headaches and broken rods. MAKE THE PIECES Cut two 3×30-inch backing strips and two 4½×24-inch rod support strips out of a 1×12-inch, No. 2 pine board. Round their corners using a saber or band saw. SAW THE SLOTS Stack the two support strips together. Starting 2½ inches from the bottom, drill four centered holes 5½ inches apart using a 1-inch Forstner bit. Be sure to put a backer block under the bottom strip to prevent splintering when the bit breaks through. Then, with a saber or band saw, cut angled slots to meet the holes. BORE THE BACKS Using a countersink bit, drill three ¼-inch-deep depressions into one of your backing strips: one at 6, one at 15, and one at 24 inches from the top of the strip. Using

topic3 The guide thought I was nuts. Maybe so, for in throwing a little bluegill popper along the lily-pad edges, I was ignoring the largemouths that sometimes broke the surface behind us. But bass fishing, of which I'd already had plenty, can get pretty intense in this age of metal-flake mania. "So maybe you'll get what we call a titty brim," said
