Jim Harned tells me that he’s been deer hunting for decades, and every year his brother, Ken, outshines him. This year was no different, Jim bagged a 7-point buck with a 15-inch spread. Ken’s deer was an 8 pointer with 17-inch spread. So history really does repeat itself.

Brad "Catter" Kellogg is a different hunter. How'd he bag his buck on Saturday morning? At 7:05 a.m., he was just off his front deck — in his longjohns — when he spotted and downed an 8 point. It was all legal.

Delly Niggel got to share an amazing moment with her daughter who achieved her Doctor of Chiropractic from NYCC. She started by taking college classes in high school, attending Trinity College in Chicago and 5 1/2 years later walked across the stage to be hooded for her D.O.C. She is currently working at River of Life Chiropractic in Erie. Great job,  Dr. Tori Niggel.

Did you get a “peak” at the angel above Phyllis Maloney’s front deck?

Frank Cutshall recently stepped down as Union City’s head baseball coach, the Bears assistant wrestling and football coach. “I’ll miss the wrestlers most but baseball is my favorite sport,” he admits, saying he might be able to coach American Legion ball.
