I often talk about Blue Jays and how I like them. There are many people that canât stand Blue Jays and I can understand that. They are big, loud, and can be rather intimidating. I still think that they are a beautiful bird with a bad rap, and deserve another look. Although I like the Jays, they often show up at my feeder when Iâm trying to photograph my ârealâ favorite bird, the Cardinal.
An overflowing crowd honored Kane area veterans on Sunday during the annual tribute to veterans at the First United Methodist Church.

The Kane Wolves improved to 11-0 but more importantly earned a spot in next weekendâs District 9 AA finals with a hard fought 26-12 win over Brookville on Friday. Playing on a sloppy field at Kaneâs Paul R Miller Stadium, the Wolves put together a workman like effort to defeat the Raiders, who entered the game with a 6-4 record.
The Wolvesâ defense started out hot, forcing the Raiders to punt after three plays, including a tackle for a loss on second down by Evan DeLong on District 9âs second leading rusher Zach Vroman.
LUDLOW â Despite frigid temperatures and snow in the air, ground was broken Friday for the Hamilton Township Veterans Memorial.
It was a fitting time for the ceremony because Veterans' Day will be observed Monday.
Election Day this week was a big event for John Ball of Kane, who won election to a seat on the Kane School Board.
But Ball could not celebrate his victory in Kane because he was in New Jersey for the funeral of his father.
Audrey Fay Payne Moore, 78, of 1075 West Warren Rd., died Thursday, Nov. 7, 2013 at her residence surrounded by her loving husband, daughter and pets.

On April 21, 1967, in Warren, she married James B. Moore who survives.

Audrey was a very special person to all who knew and loved her. She will be missed tremendously.
A look at unofficial results of Tuesdayâs election shows that the âBand of 4â won most of the 10 precincts in the race for four seats on the Kane School Board.
The unofficial winners for four seats on the school board include Susan Grolemund, Claire Ann Depto and Linda A. Andersonâall write-in candidatesâand their endorsed ballot nomineeâJohn Ball.
The 10-0 Kane Wolves host the 6-4 Brookville Raiders on Friday night in a District 9 AA semifinal game. The records mean little, however, as the two teams have no common opponents in 2013. The winner of the game advances to next weekâs district finals, while the loserâs season comes to a close.
