Basketball season has begun in Sherman Central School for some teams. The jayvee players are practicing and the first modified girls' basketball game is scheduled for Monday, Nov. 14 against the Cassadaga Valley team. There will be no school on Veterans' Day, Friday, Nov. 11. If the sky is clear on Thursday, Nov. 10, you will be able to see the full moon. I anticipate going to the Family Life dinner theater in Williamsville on that night and hope we'll see that Beaver moon. I don't know for sure where that name came from, but perhaps from the Indians. It fits nowadays anyway because the trapping season is in full swing. Nor do I know if there are a lot of trappers around. However, I do know some Amish lads have been getting coon in their traps.
