Baseball: SUNY-Oneonta hall for Wilhelm

Thursday, Sept. 11, 2014
There are two things former Cohoes High School baseball coach John Wilhelm never got tired of in a long career of teaching, coaching and service to his country — physical fitness and winning. Although he admits he wasn’t the fastest player on the SUNY-Oneonta baseball team, Wilhelm provided power in the middle of the lineup and a live arm on the mound to help the Red Dragons win a pair of SUNYAC titles in 1970 and 1971. He will be honored for his contributions this weekend when he will join the SUNY-Oneonta Athletics Hall of Fame at a special ceremony at Dewar Arena in Oneonta.

Hunting: Scouting trip for deer season will include some squirrels

Thursday, Sept. 11, 2014
For those of us who hunt deer, especially with a bow and arrow, this month is when we should spend a bit of time in the woods checking the activity of the elusive whitetail. Wandering around your deer woods, you should be able to begin planning your hunt and determining where you will be at sunup on Oct. 1. Each year early in September, my scouting is also a hunting trip to gather the main ingredients for my squirrel stew. Normally, I will carry either a .410 shotgun or .22 rifle, but this year, I will be squirreling with a Gamo Buckmaster Squirrel Terminator air rifle.
