ROSSITER â€” Back in late October, Vernon Winebark, of Rossiter, received a call he's been waiting for the past nine years: One confirming that he was one-of-56 lucky hunters chosen to receive an elk license in the Pennsylvania Game Commission's annual license drawing.
Even better news came in that phone call when he was informed that he was one of just 18 hunters to receive a tag to bring down a bull this year.
INDIANA â€” Every day, Brenda Hays is inspired by her daughter, Christy.
A 14-year-old student at DuBois Area Senior High (DASH), Christy spends her time as if she has nothing holding her back.
An honor roll student, Christy volunteers her time at Christ the King Manor, playing games with the residents and also making crafts.
She is currently knitting blankets to donate to the local police departments and the ambulance service for trauma situations and accidents.
She's also greatly involved in 4-H, hoping it'll put her on the right track to a career in veterinary science.
