Krcic like another coach on the field

When it comes to sports, coaches do the coaching and players do the playing.

A coach is designated to the sideline, usually against his well, and is forced to lead his team through strategy and motivation. The player has it a little easier, as he or she is actually playing the game and has a direct impact on the result.

Switch pays off for Stelmack

Prior to his sophomore year at Northwestern Lehigh, Tyler Stelmack made a decision that impacted his athletic career.

As a freshman, Stelmack followed in the footsteps of his brother, Kyle, a 2009 Northwestern graduate, and was a member of the Tigers football team.

A solid track and field season running the 1,600 and 3,200 meter races last spring convinced Tyler to turn his talents to cross country.

The gridiron squad's loss turned out to be a major gain for the Tiger harriers, as Stelmack emerged as one of the top runners in District 11 and the State.

CASNOVIA TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) It's right there on your computer: a live video of deer doing one of their favorite things, eating.

Western Michigan deer ranch operator Drew Born is hoping that thousands of people will sign up for his new website with its real-time video stream and archived deer footage.

"There are 19 million hunters in the U.S. who fit into our target market," Born, 20, told The Grand Rapids Press.

"They have a passion for deer, but the only time they see deer is when they're out hunting in the fall. Now, they can watch them 24/7."

TOPTON According to Dave Ehrig, just the challenge of taking a deer – or any game animal – with a muzzleloader rifle makes it a trophy.

That is especially so for those who hunt during Pennsylvania's flintlock deer season, which opens statewide Monday through Saturday, Jan. 15, and remains open in Wildlife Management Unit 5C through Saturday, Jan. 29.
