Codorus Creek

Tyrone Manley Jr. fishes a couple times a week. "I just do it for fun." He explained that he throws the fish back after catching 
them. "My dad taught me. I want to teach my kids when I grow up." Manley is expecting his first child, a son, on June 29. 
"I'm nervous, very nervous."

Eugene Reaugh, Vietnam veteran and retired trucker, explained that when birds fly high, it's a sign that rain is coming. "There 
is a lot of unhappiness in this world," he advised. "You have to smile." Reaugh joked about being a "goofball" and old fashioned 
for calling me "Ma'am."

The Snuggie

For his blog, Andrew Shaw, education reporter extraordinaire, needed some glamor shots depicting the many uses of
his mother's snuggie.

Murder Mystery

I was walking through an alley in the city and saw this

I told one of the night reporters about it. Apparently, someone called the cops last week to report unidentified cow parts 
in an alley. I guess no one has bothered to remove them yet.

Things that distract while on assignment (part 2)

- Subtle patterns and shooting with excessive dead space -
Olivia Sharp practices her talent, sign language, during rehearsals for York County's Junior Miss Scholarship Program. Sharp will compete for scholarship money and the title of Junior Miss. Contestants are judged on scholastics, an interview, talent, fitness and self-expression.

- Other photographers -
Tammy Rinehart of Jackson Township photographs contestants practicing a choreographed fitness dance that will be performed as part of York County's Junior Miss show. Rinehart is a "Big Sister" mentor for one of the contestants.


The slide behind the New Bridgeville Fire Company reminds me of a Dr. Seuss illustration.

I covered a Palm Sunday service this morning. Halfway through, the kids got to leave and take part in their own worship service. I followed and felt like I was taking part in recess. There was pretty light and I didn't have to worry about loud shutter clicks in the middle of silent prayer.
