The Way Things Were -- 04/23/2014
By Anne Weaver

ABOUT THE WEEK OF APRIL 30, 1965, Prof. James F. Dubuar, who was director of the New York State Rangers School at Wanakena for 38 years, gave an interesting address at the 23rd Woodmen's Club Annual Dinner in Old Forge. Mr. Dubuar began his address with a vivid picture of a possible timber shortage expressed by well-informed foresters 50 years ago, but stated the shortage had not taken place except in the supply of high quality trees.

Youth turkey hunt is just a gobble away
By Dick Nelson

Love is in the air; or at least it was one day last week as I listened to a couple of tom turkeys gobble their fool heads off. If nothing else it was a welcome reminder that New York’s spring turkey hunting season opens May 1, and sooner if you are 12-15 years of age and participate in the DEC’s 13th annual Youth Wild Turkey Hunting Weekend April 26-27. If it’s anything like last spring about 800 gobblers won’t live to see the start of the regular month-long season.

According to experts I've read or watched, it's all related to first, the animal's sense of who he is in the household, and second, eye contact or lack of same.
Years ago, I read an article by a veterinarian, in which he said cat lovers make eye contact w ...

Heartbleed bug could compromise personal data
By Peter Newell

By now you have probably heard of the Heartbleed bug and may be concerned about whether or not it affects you.
The primary thing to understand is Heartbleed is not a virus. Your computer cannot be infected by it, which is a good thing. However, this also means your antivirus program can't detect it; therefore you have no easy way of knowing whether or not the security of any of your information has been compromised.
Even though Heartbleed is not a virus, you could have a problem with the device ...
