Hungry hunters - and all with a craving for the homemade - have a new dining destination in Menahga. Lynnelle Johnson and fiancé Jim Rittmiller have opened L&J Sportsman's Café on Main, satisfying appetites and Johnson's lifelong ambition. Johnson has had her "nose in the cookbook" since she was a child, frying bologna and cheese when she was 8. When she and Rittmiller decided to make the move north, she strolled about Menahga looking for a possible venue for her ambitions. "This is a nice size and the perfect location," she said.
