Outdoors: Firearm deer season starts Saturday

Wednesday, November 27, 2019 by NICK HROMIAK in Sports

It’s here. It’s deer - the firearms deer hunting season that is.

The much awaited rifle deer season gets underway statewide Saturday, Nov. 30, when the majority of sportsmen go afield in hopes of bagging a buck. And this year, the season opens on a Saturday after Thanksgiving instead of the Monday after the holiday as it has traditionally been.

According to Chris Rosenberry, supervisor of the Game Commissions Deer and Elk Section, “The Saturday opener will become the biggest...

Pete’s Top-10: Nazareth Special gives Blue Eagles gold

Wednesday, November 20, 2019 by PETER CAR in Sports

For the first time ever, I didn’t get one pick right in last week’s edition. Truly a Haley’s Comet moment, but also a great week for all three winners last week, as Nazareth’s victory over Parkland will always be remembered by the Blue Eagle faithful for their Nazareth special.

Pottsville proved that they are no joke, as they head into the state tournament and Southern Lehigh dismantled Oil City 41-0 in their state playoff game.

What can all three teams do this week?
