David Caldwell's weekly roundup
of news affecting Blacklick Valley


More than an inch and a half of rain fell in the Blacklick Valley last weekend and several wet days since then have added to the total. Although the total amount of rain is below the yearly average, this week's rainfall has dampened the dangers of forest and brush fires as well as adding to water supplies. Along with the unseasonably warm temperatures, the rain has caused some plants to begin their spring cycle. Dandelions are flowering and lilac bushes are budding.

Deer Hunting

Monday, November 26, marked the opening of Pennsylvania's annual deer hunting season. This year, the rules are different from any year since 1906. Hunters may harvest a doe or buck and if they have a doe license, they may harvest one of each. The deer population has become so great in many areas, both urban and rural, that they are becoming pests and causing damage on farms and in yards. In spite of the warm, rainy weather, reports indicate that the deer harvest is much higher than in previous years. For instance, local meat packers to whom the lucky hunters turn to butcher their deer, say they are getting two to three times as many deer as in the past. This unique deer-hunting season should put a big dent in the deer population and it will give an added bonus to some of the local, less fortunate residents. Many hunters donate a portion of their deer meat to area food banks.

High school football

The Bishop Carroll Huskies and the Bishop McCort Crimson Crushers had very good football seasons and advanced to the state-championship semi-finals Friday night in the Class A and Class AA divisions. Rochester, a powerful team from the WPIAAl, at Mansion Park in Altoona, dashed the Huskies' hopes of reaching the state final in Class A. A team from Washington, Pa., defeated Bishop McCort and closed their season one game short of the state-championship. Both teams provided their fans with a lot of excitement and gave much pride to their schools.

I'm a senior citizen (one of a series)

I'm now spending more time with my pillows than with my mate.

I'm realizing that aging is not for sissies.

I'm anti everything now: anti-fat, anti-smoke, anti-noise, anti-inflammatory.

I'm walking more (to the bathroom) and enjoying it less.

I'm going to reveal what goes on behind closed doors.....absolutely nothing!

I'm sure they are making adults much younger these days.

Advent thought for the day

If I were asked what are the three greatest Christian virtues, I would reply: First, humility; second, humility; third, humility.
