For landowners who are reluctant to allow hunting on their property, Senate Bill 648 sponsored by Pennsylvania Senator Alloway, now protects them from liability for actions of others.

The Bill received final passage on May 8 by a vote of 49-0. It amends the Game and Wildlife Code (Title 34) to ensure landowners who allow hunting on their property to not be subject to prosecution for Code violations committed by the hunters whom the landowner has allowed to hunt. The Bill also states...

Off to states Lederer, DeCesaris will make trip to Ship

Wednesday, May 22, 2013 by TYLER TRUMBAUER Special to the Press in Sports

Sprinting down the red, rubber track, breathing heavily as he pumps his arms trying to propel himself forward, Alec Lederer sees no one ahead of him. As he heads into the final straightaway toward the coveted destination of the finish line, the senior realizes no one is around him. With each stride closer to the finish line, the crowd at Blue Mountain High School cheered louder and louder until he embarked on a golden opportunity.

The East Stroudsburg University-bound Lederer took 9:...

Girls open with Pottsville

Wednesday, May 22, 2013 by GEORGE GEIGER Special to the Press in Sports

"We have the right attitude and I know we have the ability," Sally Whittaker-Kahan said Tuesday.

The "we" is her Northampton softball team, which has been idle since losing to Emmaus in the Lehigh Valley Conference semifinals on Monday a week ago.

Now the Konkrete Kids, who are seeded second in the District 11 4A playoffs, are getting ready for Pottsville.

Pottsville, a Schuylkill League entry, knocked off Nazareth 5-2 Tuesday in first-round play and visits Northampton...

Kids lose a tough one to Freedom

Wednesday, May 22, 2013 by JEFF MOELLER Special to the Press in Sports

Unfortunately for the Kids, Northampton's baseball season may have come to a fitting end.

All season long, the Konkrete Kids had trouble finding a bit hit in a big spot and leaving more than their share of runners in scoring position, and they were also victimized by big plays against them. In their game against Freedom in the opening round of the PIAA District 11 Class 4A playoffs, the script appeared to surface again.

Freedom's Jarrett Clymer led off the bottom of the eighth...

Girls fall to EHS

Wednesday, May 15, 2013 by GEORGE GEIGER Special to the Press in Sports

It's not the end of the world, but...

The softball season did not end Monday for the Northampton softball team, but it must have felt like it did.

After jumping in front 2-0 after one inning, the Konkrete Kids seeded No. 1 in the Lehigh Valley Conference playoffs let one get away as Emmaus rallied for a 6-2 win in 10 innings.

Played at Allentown's Patriot's Park, the Konkrete Kids fell to 19-2 overall, but still have the District 11 playoffs to look forward to.

Kids do well at leagues

Wednesday, May 15, 2013 by TYLER TRUMBAUER Special to the Press in Sports

While most students are afraid to break school rules in fear of reprimand, Kory DeCesasris broke a school record and is proud of it.

Last week the K-Kids track and field team competed in the two-day, two-league championship at Whitehall's Zephyr Sports Complex, and right out of the gate DeCesasris left his mark. One of the first events held was the shot put and the senior was the favorite to come away with gold. His first two throws of 55-2.25 and 55-1 set the tone. His third attempt...

If you're an avid bass fisherman, did you know there's a new species of black bass swimming in southeast waters according to the Outdoor Pressroom.

Scientists from Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission have discovered these new species while DNA testing a species found in Florida's Chipola River in 2007. The accompanying photo of the bass, that is destined to be called the "Choctaw bass" (more on that later), was collected from Florida's Holmes Creek in February 2012....
