OLD PHOTO ALBUM UPDATE: Firearms instructor identified

EXPRESS ARCHIVES

Firearms instructor identified

We printed this photo on Sept. 15. It shows Cara Karstetter learning the best form to hold and aim a rifle at the Clinton County Sportsmen for Youth Field Day in August 1993. Since the photo first appeared, Lock Haven native Jesse Genevish Jr., now a resident of Lititz, identified the instructor as his father-in-law, Ray Phillips. Mr. Phillips, who passed away some years ago, was instrumental in starting and running the hunter training program at the Southern Clinton County Sportsmen’s Club in Loganton, Genevish said. He added, “Ray believed education to be the key to the enjoyment of and respect for firearms and proper stewardship of our beloved wild creatures — as well as a great way to always have something good to eat in the freezer!”
