It wasnâ€™t pretty, but the Kane Lady Wolves outlasted the Brockway Lady Rovers in a slugfest on Tuesday in the Wolvesâ€™ Den. The Lady Wolves improved to 10-9 on the season with the 49-38 win.

Kane girlsâ€™ basketball coach Dave Kiehl needed only to look at one statistic after the game to explain his teamâ€™s 42-37 loss to DuBois Central Catholic on Friday night: foul shooting.

The year 2013 started out very slowly for this nature photographer, as it usually does. The January cold and snow keeping me indoors, or shoveling snow most of the time, as the cabin fever was about to set in for another long and cold winter season. Then, the first call of the year came in, telling me of evening grosbeaks being seen in the area. I always wanted a picture of the elusive yellow bird from the North, but in recent years they had not been plentiful in our area.
