Training to respond: Firefighters, police learn from active-shooter scenario
Blood slid down my arm from a spot just above my left elbow. I groaned as my eyelids fluttered, and I slid further down the cabinets I leaned against.

In unexpected places using methods that most folks don’t associate with halibut. Our first halibut was a nice, fat 30-pounder that landed flopping on our deck the last week of April.
