Taylor Detrick carries on family's athletic tradition

September 24, 2012

Being a high school athlete takes a tremendous amount of time, effort and determination.
Being a female athlete in a male-dominated sport takes even more of a commitment. There have been a few girls in the history of Kane athletics to wrestle or go out for football, but only Taylor Detrick has played the entire way from middle school through her senior year.
Taylor, the daughter of Jim and Chris Detrick, has been playing organized football since she was a Kane Tornado at nine years old.
Taylor said she never considered not playing, she simply loves football.

Adventures of a wildlife photographer "Late summer blues"

September 23, 2012

For a wildlife photographer, the late summer is not too exciting. The wildlife sightings I enjoyed during the springtime are no longer with us. The fox have moved from their dens, bear cubs are quite larger than the little teddy bears  they were in the spring. The beautiful breeding colors of the spring birds are all but gone. It is a challenge for most nature photographers at this time of year to get that perfect shot. To make matters worse, the leaves will not change for almost a month, late September to early October.
