Lady Panthers hold their own in Final 4

By ADAM SHINDER For the Express GLENS FALLS — Playing on the biggest stage in New York high school girls volleyball didn't faze the Mayfield Lady Panthers, they simply ran into too much good competition at once. Playing in the New York State Public High School Athletic Association championships for the first time in program history, Mayfield held its own in the Class D final four Saturday at the Glens Falls Civic Center, but couldn't produce enough positive results to advance out of round ...

By ADAM SHINDER For the Express GLENS FALLS — The Broadalbin-Perth Patriots' dream of playing for the New York State Public High School Athletic Association Class C girls volleyball championship for a second straight year on Sunday afternoon at the Glens Falls Civic Center never got past Saturday morning.

B-P sweeps Salmon River to reach regional title

B-P coach Mike Calvello’s son was getting married at the same time as the Lady Patriots were taking on Section X champion Salmon River in a Class C regional final match Saturda ...

Deer season normally begins with a bang by Dick Nelson

Chances are, if you're a deer hunter, you won't be reading this until the sun goes down or you filled your deer tag early this morning. For those of you wondering what I mean by that, or prefer purchasing meat from a butcher; New York's regular big game hunting season opened across the Southern Tier last weekend and it's a pretty good bet that more than 25 percent of the whitetails that were walking around when the sun came up, won't be around to see it set. Regardless of weather conditions, ope ...

Southern Tier hunters will soon be gunning for deer by Dick Nelson

New York's deer hunting season opens across the Southern Tier on November 21, and while deer hunters are hoping it will be cold and snowy, you can bet your favorite shootin' iron that the deer are praying for rain and warm temperatures. From all appearances it looks as though weather conditions will favor the deer. The long-range forecast is calling for temperatures in the high 50's on opening weekend with a 20 percent chance of rain. So what else is new? Opening day has been far from ideal in r ...

Bucks are feeling amorous this time of year by Dick Nelson

There is a standing argument among deer hunting experts on just how much effect the autumn equinox has on a white-tailed deer's romantic behavior. Some believe it's the phase of the moon that controls the activity while others say the moon has nothing to with it, it's just a natural biological pattern determined by hormones. Whatever it is, reports coming in from area bowhunters indicate that buck deer are getting deeper into what is commonly referred to as the "pre-rut." This is the time prior ...

Opossums deserve more respect than they get by Dick Nelson

With fields and forests alive with rabbit, upland bird and deer hunters, reports of Lyme disease will probably be coming in at a greater rate. Not that the little buggers are more active at this time of the year. They don't seem to care what part of the calendar they spew their infectious venom into an unsuspecting recipient. And, much like your local mail carrier, neither rain, nor snow nor sleet nor hail, nor gloom of night will stop them from deliver the devitalizing bacterium. I'm not going ...

Public Works and Water departments should be combined To the editor, I am writing this to clear up what I see as some misconceptions with the Charter Review Committee’s recommendations concerning the current structure of Johnstown’s Water Department. I feel that too many residents are concentrating on the abolishment of a “Water Board”.  What we really want is to combine the two departments under one leadership to improve efficiency.   Too many times in small c ...

Can't we do better for our pets? To the editor: Two weeks ago, our dog was bitten multiple times by a dog that got out of its back yard in Gloversville. The vet told us he was lucky; one of the bite punctures nearly missed his jugular, and their office has seen many cases like this lately where the injured dog was much worse off. Although there is a leash law ("Dogs at large prohibited") in the city of Gloversville, the responding police officer told us that it was only a civil matter and he co ...
