Taking the hot out of C-hot-ard

The word “hot,” taken from letters within a Chotard Landing sign, frames Clint Brown, 14, as he rests on a picnic bench after spending the morning fishing on Lake Chotard with his family. Clint’s father, Stan Brown, who was cleaning the morning’s catch under a nearby shade tree said they left the water early to avoid some of the heat from temperatures that climbed to 93. The Browns are from Leakesville and have been spending their family vacation at Lake Chotard this week. (The Vicksburg Post/C. Todd Sherman)
