    It’s Christmastime in Our City0

    What an unbelievable transition I’ve witnessed from the LL Stearns and Carol House days of the 70s to what downtown Williamsport has become today. Yes, there might have been some lean years in between, but Downtown has never looked better. I always enjoyed those Christmas shopping trips with my Mom and Grandparents back in the

  • Interesting to Amazing by Tom, son of Ann and Sam0

    I was sorry to hear that Gerry Ayers passed away so soon after writing his last column. It reminds me of Charles Schultz and his last “Peanuts” column. Mr. Schultz, among other things, was a sports fan. He particularly liked ice-skating and hockey, starting, later in life, an over-75 hockey league! All the more a

    One of this area’s most notable and interesting Christmas-related events takes place for the 30th time in Mifflinburg when the Christkindl Market takes place from December 13 to 15. The largest winter festival in the Susquehanna River Valley, the three-day Mifflinburg Christkindl Market, will open Thursday, Dec. 13. The outdoor, authentic, German Christmas Market attracts

    The Changing Face of Deer Hunting0

    Yes, I’m old enough now to have watched the many changes that have come to deer hunting in our state. At one time Pennsylvania boasted of over a million hunters for the opening of deer season, but today we are well below that number. It may also be true that there were more deer, at

  • Umpiring U0

    With the Christmas holiday fast approaching the talk around many family gatherings will include education plans for the teenagers approaching high school graduation and adulthood. When that question has been asked of South Williamsport’s Bryce Brewer, his response throws most people a curve. A few days after unwrapping Christmas gifts the 2018 South Williamsport graduate

    I need to apologize for the two-week sabbatical. I was at a loss for words, and couldn’t find a pencil. Tis the season boys and girls. No, I didn’t cash in on any Black Friday specials, but I am now well rested. I also have plenty of material for the next couple of months. Sorry

  • Song of the Week… “Bleeding Hearts” by Kimberly Adair0

    It’s funny how Williamsport was bare and deserted when I was a naivé child, and the arts had been hidden away in those old Victorian homes — afraid to come out and represent the talent that this small town holds within its heart. Today, the Port is well known for its music and a lady,

    “Always Give Thanks” By Scott Anthony Watson – 6th Grade, Curtin Intermediate School0

    Always give thanks for the things you have, because what you have might not be what someone else has. You might have a nice source of entertainment, but the other person might not have nice things and can’t get access to the Internet. Always give thanks for the food that you eat. You might eat

  • This Christmas…0

    OK, so as of this writing (which is Friday), I am still nowhere near ready for Christmas. I’m not a procrastinator by nature, but Christmas gets me just about every year. I think I need to go get a Christmas tree so that I can feel the whole Christmas Spirit more wholly. Maybe a walk

  • County Hall Corner: A Meeting Minus One 0

    When I attend the County Commissioners Meetings, I see people from time to time that know me, and they ask, “Larry, why are you here?” My standard reply is, “I cover the county for Webb Weekly and write a column called, ‘County Hall Corner.’” Often people apologize that they read the column but miss the

    When Meg Finn, director of the Lycoming Arts Council, and accomplished area musician and music producer, Walt Straiton, met several months ago to discuss the idea of producing a Christmas music album featuring area musicians, they had no idea that it would become such a work of love and great music that would benefit Lycoming

    You want no part of that. In fact, the farther away you are from whatever-it-is, the happier you’ll be. Nope, some things are not your friend. Some things are not good for you at all. And as you’ll see in the new book “Black Klansman: A Memoir” by Ron Stallworth, some people can’t resist some

  • Drive-Thru. No Thanks.0

    There are great multitudes of things my husband refuses to do based on what I assume are a warped set of principles. To name a few: He won’t put up a Christmas tree on or before Thanksgiving, he won’t arrange the bills in his wallet in any semblance of order, and he won’t pull up

    “My Christmas” By Nyseim Williams, 3rd Grade Jackson Primary School0

    The reason why I like Christmas is because it’s God’s birthday, and because of the meaning of giving. Sometimes I don’t like the presents, but I take them to be nice. My favorite part about Christmas is spending time with my family. My big brother is disabled, so I love him a lot. It’s like
