katec@herald-mail.com Chris Nelson grew up in Chambersburg, Pa., and always hunted with his dad when he was a kid. He continued to hunt until he moved to Hagers-town about 18 years ago, and although he takes his 4-year-old Irish setter, Lucy, for daily field runs, Nelson and his bird dog do not hunt deer or bring venison to the table. But he fondly recalled the taste of game in his family meals. Roast leg of venison was a Christmas dinner tradition in his parents' home, and the ground venison makes great spaghetti sauce, he said.

One of the most popular outdoors-related activities during the winter months is attending one of the many sport shows that are held nearly every weekend. Some of the shows are focused on a particular audience, such as fly fishermen; other shows are much more general and varied. One of the biggest and best is the Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show in Harrisburg, Pa. This year the show will be held Feb. 3-11. This show has just about anything related to outdoors recreations and, in addition to the various manufacturers that attend, also features events with a lot of spectator appeal such as turkey, duck, goose and elk calling contests.

A tribute to Ronald Reagan To the editor: It seems like just yesterday I heard his speeches as former President Reagan spoke so optimistically to the nation and the world. He was known as a man who was an excellent communicator. When he took office our nation was in disarray, but he spoke so eloquently and sincerely that he brought both friend and foe together. In his lifetime he was able to see the start of communism and also blessed by God to see communism and the Cold War come to an end. What an accomplishment for a man from Hollywood as the skeptics would have you believe.
