Last Week in April

Mondays are a pain.

Fresh greens for everybody.

The tulips are way ahead of schedule this year.

First day of trout on the Chest Creek as it flows through Patton, PA.

The overnight rain and cold weather seems to have kept some of the local fishermen away from the creek this year.

Tossing back a small fry.

Fishing Buddies.

Like some people, birds don't necessarily play well with others.

Looking northwest from the third floor of the DeSepio building on the campus of Saint Francis University. I took this shot while covering a press conference.

My son gave me this feeder for my birthday a few weeks ago.

We end this week's blog with a few shots of the 2010 Special Olympics Pennsylvania Central Spring Sectional held on the campus of Saint Francis University in Cambria County over the weekend. There were more than 295 athletes and 101 coaches at the event participating in basketball, track and field, and swimming.

Event emcee Dave Wilson, Director of Counseling Services at Saint Francis, watches as the teams enter the gym.

Jim Fair of the Adams County Red Flash was this year's torchbearer.

Representing my home town, were the York County Lightning.

Jerry Gessey and his son Marshall talk strategy during the warm-up session at the pool in the Maurice Stokes Athletic Center.
