It is no coincidence that the basketball fortunes at Washington High School and Washington & Jefferson College reached championship levels in the late 1980s and early 1990s with the presence of Terrance Wilkins.
Last week, I wrote about accurate rifles, stressing the human factor in testing them. Not only the need for an experienced shooter but a few other problems. Even the best of shot has bad days and the worst shooter might be blessed that day. A one-hole group might be the result of luck just a…
A bulk of the WPIAL football realignment kept things the same. There are differences, especially for several local teams, that could drastically help the next two seasons.
It is hard to believe that it is the middle of January. I had promised myself for four days that I was going to go to the club and shoot a rifle during the winter warm spell. To be truthful, I had vowed this each of those four days and just hadn’t done it. Eventually, I made it to the club, …

There was a lot to like about the Steelers’ 2019 season. There also were some things that weren’t so good.
Thankfully, the holiday season is over and things have turned back to normal, if there is such a thing.
A few hours before Valentine’s Day 1979, the Immaculate Conception High School boys’ basketball team had its best chance in nearly a decade to upend city rival Wash High.
A couple of weeks ago, I wrote an article about the rifle-lovers rifle, the Model 70 Winchester that was made from 1936 until 1964. Combined with the interest showed in the history of these older firearms, and the upcoming gun show at the Arden Fairgrounds on Jan. 11-12, I will attempt to wr…

Did the clock finally strike midnight for Devlin Hodges?
It seems time to start shopping for a Christmas present for the family.
There is little doubt that fewer persons are choosing to spend a couple of days chasing Whitetail Deer. The deer is by far the most-hunted animal in the area, but still they flourish here right next to humankind. In fact, they reproduce and lose caution in areas where they quickly become a n…
The biggest problem with the Saturday general deer season is it has so little time between it and bear season. One must also remember there is a Thanksgiving sandwiched in that week. Most avid hunters are married and must explain to their partner why they are gulping down their dinner to get…
The climb was not always smooth.
There are a lot of things that can happen to a person when he spends his time in an unfamiliar atmosphere. It might be little more than a slight admitted fear when the shadows get long, or a strange animal calls for a mate, but it does occur. Everyone has something that sets them off.
