JOHNSONBURG â€“ The Kane Middle School Boys and Girls Track and Field Teams competed at the 25th Annual Johnsonburg Junior High Invitational on Saturday.
On a less than suitable day for a track meet the Kane Lady Wolves put together one of the best team performances of the year by bringing home a second place trophy at the Kane Invitational Track Meet this past Saturday.

This is part 5 in a series of my photographic adventure in the wilds of Alaska during the summer of 2011. When I last wrote, I was 92 miles into Denali National Park at the Kantishna Roadhouse. This is a privately owned camp, deep in the heart of Denali. I had spent the last three days hiking, fishing and photographing one of the most beautiful parks in the world. It was evening, and the rain moved into the area once again, shrouding the beautiful Mt. McKinley with a thick cover of mist and clouds.

Kane pitcher Kyla Hoag was able to regroup and get the third out with a big strikeout.
