He's 7, but he bags a gobbler

Jesse Reigle, 7, of Londonderry Twp., bagged this turkey with a 10-inch beard while hunting in the township on Saturday, April 25 during the Pennsylvania Mentored Youth Hunting Program's spring gobbler season. Under the program, youth 11 years of age and under can obtain a state permit and hunt for spring gobbler season if they are accompanied by an adult who carries the firearm during the hunt.

WOODS AND WATERS: Boaters, beware – the weather is warmer, but the water still is cold

Spring weather is right around the corner. After a long, cold and icing winter, it's about time for milder temperatures, shorts and T-shirts.

Springtime prompts boaters to venture onto their favorite waterways to engage in their love of boating, fishing and recreational kayaking. Unfortunately, spring is also the time of many mishaps.

Water temperatures are still cold. Temperatures at this time of year are a hidden disaster waiting to pounce on the unexpected. Any water temperature lower than 70 degrees can produce hypothermia.
