The Kane Wolves lost a hard-fought 7-6 game with Curwensville on Friday night in a battle of 5-1 teams. The Wolves had won their previous game on a last minute field goal against Brockway and appeared as though they might have some last minute magic again. It didn't happen, however, as the Tide got a turnover with just over three minutes left in the game and got a couple crucial first downs to run out the clock and preserve the victory on their home field.

By the time you read this fall will have begun. Today I noticed the leaves were starting to change, with many already on the ground. This colorful season is a bonus for any nature photographer with scenic being at the top of the list. I like to combine any wildlife I might encounter with a colorful background, which can be done rather easily at this time of the year. It all breaks down to being at the right place at the right time, and of course, having subjects to shoot! I always view fall as a slow time in nature photography, but I know I shouldnâ€™t do that.
