Mettle to the pedal

About 40 mountain bikers took advantage of Rider Appreciation Weekend Oct. 3-4 at Oak Mountain in Speculator, riding the chairlift up and their bicycles down the mountain. The free day of fun was Oak's way of thanking mountain bikers for their patronage. A lot of them came from Syracuse, Rochester and Albany, Oak Manager Matt O'Brien said, and some camped out overnight. The high point of the day -- no pun intended -- was a race at noon.

By Dick Nelson

New York’s deer hunting season opens across the Southern Tier Nov. 21, and while deer hunters are hoping it will be cold and snowy you can bet the deer are praying for rain and warm temperatures.
From all appearances it looks as though weather conditions will favor the deer, as they have in the Northern Tier where the regular season opened Oct. 24. The long-range forecast is calling for temperatures in the high 50s on opening weekend with a 20 percent chance of rain. So what else is new?

Some believe it’s the phase of the moon that controls the activity, while others say the moon has nothing to with it, it’s just a natural biological pattern determined by hormones.
