The Brown Trout Festival is a terrific time for Alpena. It brings many down state and local families together to have a great time; but for the life of me, I don't understand why the Brown Trout Committee continues to use the foul mouth Fish Weigh-In Announcer who makes vulgar comments. While working the past three years at the festival, I've witnessed many parents with young children and grandparents with grand kids watching and listening to the announcer's foul language. I can't help but wonder if the parents and grandparents wish they could shield the ears of the children. Knowing what they would hear, I certainly wouldn't bring my grand kids.
