HARTWICK SEMINARY – Barnyard Swing owner Marcy Birch closed the attraction today on the advice  of state conservation officers after a litter of bobcats was found in an outbuilding.

Alerted by a group of youngsters, Birch investigated and found the little bobcats on a bed of hay in a back corner.

FLY CREEK VALLEY – Visiting his parents from Saigon, where he’s now living, Jan Kuzminski Monday, Aug. 21, was taking a walk at dusk on Donlon Road when he observed a deer-colored creature crossing the road ahead.
