I have people coming up to me constantly and saying, you must have a lot of patience to do nature photography. I always give them a little chuckle when Iâ€™m asked this. I want to tell them yes I do, but I also want to tell them the different circumstances I get myself into on the way to that good nature shot. I say, and firmly believe, that a good nature photographer definitely has to be at the right place at the right time.
This week, Kane High School and Smethport Elementary and High Schools released brook trout fingerling that they have been raising as part of Pennsylvania Trout In the Classroom program. The McKean County Conservation District partnered with the schools to coordinate this event and helped release the fingerlings in Twomile Run at Wildcat Park. This is the end of a yearlong adventure for the students, who have been raising the trout from eggs as part of the TIC program. The students released the fish and also learned about aquatic invasive species, fly casting, and in-stream habitat.

HERSHEY â€“ Johnsonburg boys basketball's season did not end as sweet as the Rams would have hoped for.

The Kane Lady Wolves finished the 2012 season with an 8-8 record but showed a lot of improvement over the course of the year. The highlight of the season was a 5-1 late-season victory over eventual District 9 A Champions Elk County Catholic.
The Kane boysâ€™ track team will be coming into this season as the defending District IX Champions. Whenever you are coming off a successful season like last year, it usually means a rebuilding year. Kane will definitely be in that process in a lot of events.
