EVART -- Evart's Mark Sochocki is executive director of the Big Rapids Housing Commission but continues to keep busy with his love for the outdoors.
"As far as outdoor activities go, I've had a busy last part of 2019," Sochocki said. "I really didn't get much hunting in until November and had a couple of memorable hunts. First, I traveled back to the Thumb, in Caro, to be exact, to pheasant hunt with my former baseball coach who is 82 years old and still hunting pheasants almost every day of the season. We had an unexpectedly good hunt where we shot three roosters.
