Geocaching: the hunt for cache

Two hundred yards up the hill from my home in Bethany, PA, hidden in the heart of the borough park, is a small canister that few people have found or even noticed during the six years of its existence. It would be easy to overlook, considering one has to solve a puzzle of coordinates in order to obtain the exact location of this treasure—or “cache.” Concealed inside the canister are a small rubber dinosaur, a signature log and a congratulatory letter with the mysterious signature “The Fox and the Hound.”  Read more

Most of the caterpillars seen in the fall are on a quest to find a suitable overwintering location.  Read more

Critical juncture

SULLIVAN COUNTY, NY — In the brief lifespan of the fall season, there soon arrives that moment of critical urgency that divides the diverging road of potential future success from that sultry path destined for the disappointment of no postseason play. For the Sullivan West football team, this past weekend’s disappointing 51-14 road division loss to Millbrook makes this week’s Friday night home-division encounter with Liberty that do-or-die moment of truth.  Read more
