  • The Sportsman's Corner

    RICHARD TATE, Correspondent|Oct 31, 2019

    Last fall, my autumn turkey season did not begin until Monday afternoon of the first week – the only week in WMA 4A. It rained cats and dogs on Saturday and continued through Monday morning. As an old retired guy who despises hunting in the rain, I sat it out until the rain ended. On Monday afternoon, I took a short hike to a knob where I had found some turkey scratching near a grapevine tangle before the season. I sat and called till nearly dark; but if any turkeys were nearby, they did not...

  • Turkey Season

    Oct 31, 2019

    Two consecutive light fall wild turkey harvests and a substantial statewide turkey population of 212,000 birds should provide plenty of action in the upcoming fall turkey hunting season, which opens Saturday, Nov. 2 in most Wildlife Management Units. The most significant change in the coming fall turkey season is that a regulatory change now eliminates the requirement for fall turkey hunters to wear fluorescent orange material. It also applies to archery deer hunters throughout their six-week season....

  • Newly Detected CWD-Positive Deer Will Expand DMA 4

    Oct 31, 2019

    A captive-raised deer that recently tested positive for Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) will result in a southward expansion of Disease Management Area 4 (DMA 4) in 2020. The exact adjusted boundary for DMA 4 will not be announced until next year, after the close of hunting seasons and completion of further CWD surveillance. But the new CWD-positive deer will place most of Lancaster County within DMA 4. Even though DMA 4 will not expand until next year, the Game Commission is asking for hunters’ help now.

  • Old Order Mennonite Memoirs

    Roseann Zimmerman, Correspondent|Oct 31, 2019

    Tomatoes from our gardens, unless they are preserved, will rot. Sometimes, though, the small amount of ripe fruit doesn't merit the messy setup to can them. Learning from my daughter's friend that one can wash and cut up tomatoes like usual before storing them in the freezer, was a time saver. There they wait, safe and cold, till we get time to 'do' tomatoes. After my husband and I came home from helping to houseclean Piney Creek church in Wednesday's sun and wind, I got busy with thawing...

  • Not Your Typical Church Lady

    Kelly Baker, Correspondent|Oct 31, 2019

    You've heard the expression "opening a can of worms." It indicates that what you are about to do is going to be more complicated than it would appear. Sharing faith experiences can be a little like that because I've witnessed so many things that I'm not even sure where to begin unraveling them so that I can tell you about them. It all works together, you see: faith, fearlessness, love, forgiveness, compassion and more. So to find where one ends and one begins is very difficult because they are i...

  • We Need Ways to Hold Presidents Accountable

    Oct 31, 2019

    By LEE H. HAMILTON “I ask how and why this decision was reached,” Utah Sen. Mitt Romney said in the Senate recently. He was calling for an investigation into President Trump’s decision to pull US forces out of Syria. “Was there no chance for diplomacy? Are we so weak and so inept diplomatically that Turkey forced the hand of the United States of America?” Good questions, but here’s a wager: If the U.S. Senate does launch an investigation, would you bet that Romney or any other senator will even get close to posing them directly to...

  • Local Elections are Important. Your Vote Matters

    By RICK BOSTON Staff Writer In the 2016 presidential election, Hillary Clinton received 65,853,514 votes to Donald Trump’s 62,984,828. Clinton garnered 2,868,686 votes more than Trump, but still lost the presidency due to the electoral vote of 304 to 227. It’s hard to convince people that every vote counts when the majority of the popular vote still results in a loss, but that is the system set up when electing a president. That doesn’t mean your voice can’t be heard. This Tuesday, Nov. 5, elections for offices that have a far greater...
