Teal are little waterfowl, most of them a pound or less, and they're hardly hunted at all, even by dedicated duck hunters. Why? I really don't know, because these fast flying birds have a lot going for them. Their season begins Saturday because they hate cold weather and head south before any other duck. So, give or take the early goose season, they're the only game in town for a couple of weeks with a long dry spell between until the regular season begins on Oct. 20.

TWINSBURG John and Adam Bechtler of Norwalk recently attended the 32nd annual Twins Day Festival in Twinsburg. This event, held in the only city in the world named after twins, hosted 2,300 sets of multiples (including twins, triplets, quads and quints) from around the world. This year's event was the largest known annual gathering of twins (and other multiples) in the world, as documented in the Guinness Book of World Records. Twinsburg is located between Akron and Cleveland on Ohio 91, and was named in honor of Aaron and Moses Wilcox, early settlers from Killingsworth, Conn. The town's name was changed form Millsville to Twinsburg in 1817 at the request of the twins, who donated six acres of land that is now the town square. They also donated $20 to start the first school. The Wilcox twins were so identical that only their closest friends could tell them apart. They married sisters, held property in common, were stricken with the same ailment and died the same day. They are buried in the same grave in Twinsburg's Locust Grove Cemetery.
