Rams win first meeting between AHS and B-P boys

Between the end of the first quarter and most of the second, AHS put together a 21-6 run; later, the Rams opened the third quarter with nine straight points as part of a 24-4 stretch. “We wore ‘em out,&r ...

Defense carries Mayfield over Galway, 49-27

All over but the counting for big game season by Dick Nelson

Another New York big game hunting season has gone by the boards with closing in the Southern Tier on Dec. 7. While both bow and muzzleloader hunters still have until Tuesday to fill their tags, the fact that the number of deer taken during these late seasons is — for all practical purposes — minimal. With that in mind, I guess it would be safe to say, it's all over but the counting. Going by several early reports, it appears the kill will be substantially lower than the 208,325 taken ...

Deer hunting season doesn’t end with a bang by Dick Nelson

New York's regular big game hunting seasons are coming down to the wire. The gunning season ended Sunday and, unless you shoot something during the late bow and muzzleloader seasons, you'll have to go through a whole year of greasy pork chops, plain old beefsteaks, or other store-bought vittles. Both the late bow and muzzleloading seasons end in the Northern Zone Dec. 14 and in the Southern Tier Dec. 16. At any rate, it would be far better to nourish yourself with a healthy fat-free venison stea ...

For many, the big game season is over by Dick Nelson

New York's Southern Zone big game hunting season may end Dec. 7, but for the vast majority of hunters it ends last weekend — regardless of whether they fill their tag or not. By all accounts, there haven't been many hunters in the woods since the opener and it reflects in the kill. According to DEC spokeswoman Wendy Rosenbach, the reported statewide harvest stands at 64,000 which is five percent lower than what was taken during this same time last year — and that includes the deer ta ...

Both hunters and DEC officers have been busy by Dick Nelson

It's been feast or famine for most big game hunters since the season opened along the Southern Tier last weekend, with an emphasis on famine. According to DEC Regional Citizen Participation Specialist Wendy Rosenbach the reported kill is down by about 5 percent from this same time last year. That would be understandable if weather conditions were similar to what hunters in Buffalo and the surrounding areas are experiencing. But, weather-wise, the first several days of the season were pretty dece ...

The show must go on (and on) in Mayfield

Hurry, hurry. Step right up to the three-ring Mayfield Circus. In the first ring, you'll see Steven Salton, neighborhood owner of three tigers and two leopards. See Salton and his attorney James Doyle jump through flaming hoops in their attempts to keep these animals.

Time to remove exotic animals

After years of doing battle with the town of Mayfield in New York State courts, and losing every step of the way, it’s time for the town to enforce its cease and desist order against exotic animal business owner Steve Salton. Mr. Salton has kept at least three full-grown tigers and two leopards in a back yard enclosure in an R-1 residential district for several years and charged money to exhibit them. In June 2011, Mayfield town code enforcement officer Michael Stewart notified Salton that ...
