Memorial Day, Bass season, Indy 500 make weekend special

This weekend holds a special significance for all of us, whether we are outdoors folks or not. First, lets not forget it's all about Memorial Day and remembering those that gave their lives for us in the service of our country.
Whether you attend church services, a parade, cemetery observances or fly your flag at half staff, take a moment out of the day to remember the reasons we celebrate Memorial Day.
True, it marks the opening of bass season throughout the state. Anglers will no doubt be on the water trying new hardware in the hopes of landing a bucket mouth. Remember it's catch and release.
Catch is what 33 drivers at the 100th running of the Indianapolis 500 will be trying to do. They'll all be trying to catch the drivers ahead of them in hopes of winning the most famous race in the world.
Whether you head up north to open the family cabin, stay home and work in the yard in preparation for Memorial Day or spend a part of the day watching the race, take some quiet time to remember those that gave so much.
