Catching a ride

Nathan Curle, 6, of Windsor, was magnet fishing on Sunday at the Blackwater River in downtown Franklin. That pastime, according to his mother, Brittney, is when you tie a magnet to a rope and throw it in water to attract metal objects. So, rather than catching any fish, Nathan caught a bicycle, a screw and wall hook. As you well might suppose, the bicycle was too rusted to be salvaged.
