We are now into a new year. 2011 turned out to be a very good year for me photography wise. At the beginning of the year, I had no idea what to photograph, and with the long winter we were having, I was afraid I would miss some great winter shots. There were great opportunities out there, but most of my favorite places were snowed in, or I just didnât feel like hiking into the woods with snow up to my waist. I know what youâre thinking! A true die hard photographer wouldnât give it a second thought, trudging through the deep snow to get that perfect shot.

The Red Raiders hit a big 3-pointer right before the buzzer in the first quarter to take a 6-point lead into the second quarter instead of a 3-point lead.
The Wolves' defense played tough but were trying to make big plays all night against a talented team. The free-throw line again was a problem as Kane converted only eight of their 23 tries.

It is mid July just before 10 p.m. and Iâm flying over the city of Seattle, Washington. The city is spectacular at night, with the famous Space Needle illuminated against the skyline. This is actually my second visit to the city. My first trip, over forty years ago, I was heading for the Army base at Fort Lewis. In that era, I felt sure I was on my way to South Vietnam, but as fate would have it, our company was deployed to another destination. You see, the Vietnam War was winding down, and the decision was made to reduce personnel going in that direction.
HERSHEY - The Kane country teams finished the season at the state meet in Hershey on Saturday.
Taylor Beimel, Kristen Boyer, Avery Colson and Jon Gelsick all competed in the event, and all would have fine races in the final race of the year.
BROCKWAY - The Kane Wolves travelled to Brockway to take on the Rovers on a good night for high school football.
The Brockway Rovers used a strong running game and got some great blocking up front to open up holes for the running backs. They were able to collect two first downs and put the young defense on their heels early. Then with just a little under nine minutes to go in the first quarter they got back to back nice runs culminating in the first score of the game with a big 43-yard touchdown. The PAT was good.
The Kane Lady Wolves ended their season with a loss to Bradford in a three-game sweep, giving them a 7-9 record. Â
In the first set, the Lady Wolves struggled to gel as a team, allowing Bradford to take a huge 17-0 lead before getting a point.
âThe girls were just sort of out of sync in this opening set," said Kane head varsity volleyball coach Judy Kessler. "No matter what they did, it was a struggle. You have games like that and unfortunately when itâs against a strong team like Bradford, theyâre going to take advantage of it and score a lot of points.â
