NFL to tribute 9/11

From the Meadowlands to Arrowhead Stadium to Candlestick Park, the NFL on Sunday will remember the victims and heroes of the terrorist attacks of 10 years ago. Then it will fully open a season that was in doubt for 4½ months during the lockout.

Coaches and players are both eager and nervous about getting started. Perhaps no one expressed those feelings better than Jets coach Rex Ryan, whose team hosts the Cowboys on Sunday night just a few miles from ground zero.

Outdoor Life: Dove hunting a fall ritual

Author's note: It has been a year since I've been making my weekly visit with you in the Statesboro Herald. In celebration I offer up a story that many South Georgia hunters can relate to - the opening day of dove season.
