Unprecedented rebound of Whitetail deer due to conservationism

By the time the sun is high enough to illuminate the patch of oak trees on the hill, a herd of whitetail deer (Odocoileus virginianus) will have been feeding in the shadows for quite some time. A group of mature does, fawns and a few bucks browsing on the acorns strewn across the ground stop feeding only long enough to glance in the direction of the faintest noise or to engage in social activities. Once the air is warmed with the sun's light, the group will disappear at its leisure into the cover of the grassy creek bottoms nearby.

Bats should be welcomed not feared

FORSYTH - Halloween has come and gone, but superstitious fears and negative myths about bats live on, fed by the creatures' unusual habits and appearance.

Great competitors make a sport better

Mile 12 of a tough half-marathon. My hamstring is tight, ready to snap like an overstretched rubber band. My lungs are full of fire. My head is pounding harder than my feet. I will run nowhere near as fast as I usually run. No PR’s on this day, yet I feel prouder and more accomplished than ever.

Forging friendships through running

Sitting in the car with the heater and seat warmers on full blast, I look out the window at a chilly scene. The wind is howling. The sky is gray. The water on the lake looks as choppy and uneven as my self-cut bangs in third grade. Awake since 4:30 a.m., I’ve already taught a strength training class, thrown a load of laundry in the washer and herded the girls to school. It’s always tempting to drive home and crawl under the covers, but I never do. No matter how tired I am, no matter how ...
