EDITOR'S NOTE: Norwalk Reflector photographer Lou Reda shares his finest Cleveland Indians memories today. The Indians take on the New York Yankees beginning Thursday in the best-of-five American League Division Series. It was mid-June in 1962 and the Indians were fighting to maintain respectability when the Yankees arrived for a four- game series. I grew up hating the Yankees, thanks to my father. (To say he was a Tribe fan is an understatement. We buried dad two years ago wearing a baseball tie with an Indians cap and baseball next to him).

Today is a long-awaited day for area archers and crossbow hunters because that marks the first of the upcoming deer seasons and a chance to bag a fine buck or fat doe. It'll be a good chance, too, because the deer herd is in excellent shape and there are fair numbers of animals waiting in nearby woodlots, creek bottoms, grassy swales and light thickets. If there's a problem, it's that they can be tough to bag during opening weeks.
