Eric Payne was in elementary school when his father taught him and his brother how to hunt small game on their farm near Cearfoss. Payne, now 31, said his father, Art Payne, never imagined the pastime would evolve into a passion that would take his younger son to remote parts of the world in search of record-size animals. He said his father sometimes says that if he would have foreseen how much time hunting would take his sons away from home, he would never have gotten them started.

The thinker: Shaping life as it comes, one experience at a time So, who am I? I'm just your average, 30-something single male who writes and thinks a lot - maybe too much. The kind of person who sleeps with a note pad by the bed so he can reach over and scrawl something like, "Analyze my dream about moose tomorrow. " Of course, I wake up hours later and say, "What dream about a moose?" and throw it away. But sometimes I have good ideas. While neither young nor old, I'm feeling myself grow and mature each year and think more seriously about what I want to be when I grow up, how much I want to have a family, what to do if my mom's health gets worse and other hard questions of life.

Graham Blair, 16, ate a piece of chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting, known as “wacky cake” by his family. Asked by a family member if it was as good as the wacky cake made by his mom, Terri Blair, he said, “Yes, it is.” “How rude,” responded his mother, good-naturedly, from across the table.
