Scout Report: Strike a match for freedom
Some of my fondest childhood memories are learning how to shoot with my grandpa. When I was only knee-high, he taught me how to use an old Winchester Model 60, which is a single-shot bolt action .22 caliber rifle. For those who are unfamiliar with guns, .22 Long Rifle is the most popular caliber round ever made. It's the cheapest bullet to shoot, there is no kick, and the noise they make is similar to a firecracker. It’s the perfect round for beginners to learn the fundamentals of shooting.
Enjoying Nature: Looking for snow in June

A heavy mast crop last fall was one sign that led those who use old-time folk lore to predict conditions to warn that the winter of 2013-'14 would be bad. It was a good call. March blasts of arctic air make seeking out the remaining seeds, berries and nuts a matter of survival for wild birds and animals. Insect-eating creatures find food scarcer due to cold, as well.
Bad weather hurts the bottom line, but warmer weather is on the way
As a resort community, much of the revenue generated in Fairfield Glade relies on visitors. So far this year, cold weather has put quite a damper on outdoor activity. Due to the freezing temperatures and snow, January golf rounds recorded 943 18-hole equivalents – about 325 rounds under budget and 528 less than last year.
