  • County Hall Corner: Lady Liberty has Dropped Her Scales0

    In 1831, a young French diplomat named Alexis de Tocqueville was charged with researching this country’s penal system but found himself more enamored with our judicial system. After going about the country, he returned to France and put his observations into a book, Democracy in America, published in 1835. It would become one of the

  • County Hall Corner: On Your Mark…Get Set…0

    Yes, yes, I know it is a long time out, but believe me, it will be here before we know it. I am speaking about the upcoming Primary Election on April 23rd and the General Election on November 5th. Many political prognosticators, who are wiser than I am, believe this might be one of the

    It was great talking with so many of you about my first column of the new year, “Let’s call it 2024.” Just a reminder, if you missed any of the past issues of Webb Weekly, they can be found archived at webbweekly.com. I should also mention for people outside of our distribution area or who

  • County Hall Corner: What are We in for in 2024?0

    We still have a month left in 2023, but the upcoming year may be one of this century’s most important years, and we need to get ready. The United States has never been more divided than it is right now. Given that even antisemitism is publicly displayed, and in the spirit of ‘diversity’ considered acceptable

  • We Are in a Battle for the Soul of America0

    I have waited to write this article until President Joe Biden officially announced his intention regarding the 2024 election. Last Tuesday, he did just that, releasing a video asking the American people for more time to “finish this job.” Before I get started, I want to clarify that I would be writing the same words

  • County Hall Corner: History in the Making0

    In the March 1st issue of Webb Weekly, I wrote an article referencing a quote from Henry Ford, “Sorry, Henry, History is Not Bunk.” I used a poll of the “greatest athlete of all time” to prove how weak our country has become in understanding our history. To quote myself, “History is not ours to

  • March 29 is Vietnam Veterans Recognition Day0

    The men and women who fought and died in the Vietnam War are probably the most underappreciated and underrecognized of American veterans. Largely because they were involved in the most controversial war in American history. In a bid to reverse the injustice done to these veterans, a Vietnam Veterans Recognition Day was established. Vietnam Veteran

  • County Hall Corner: Dining with the Defeated0

    My wife and I are elected representatives for the Republican Party in Clinton Township, and in that capacity, we get invited to several events. A couple of weeks ago, we received an invite in our email, “for those of you who worked the polls during this past election, you have been invited to a dinner

  • County Hall Corner: The Hunt for Red November0

    Harry Truman held up the famous November 3, 1948 headline on the Chicago Daily Tribune, which stated, “Dewey Defeats Truman,” with a big smile on his face. Last week’s midterm elections might be remembered similarly. The pollsters were unanimous in their assurance that the Republicans would easily control the House of Representatives and, most probably,

  • County Hall Corner: Our Seriously Surreal Senate Race0

    2022 is known as a midterm election year. Midterm elections are quite different from any other because they include a wide variety of political races — local offices, of course, as well as races for state offices and US Representative and Senate seats. This vast field results in the national media featuring a race here

  • Coup Crap0

    At first, I was amused by the US Congress January 6 Committee created to investigate the coup/insurrection that took place on that day in 2021, as a group of zealots stormed the hallowed chambers of our US Congresspeople for the purpose of preventing the certification of the 2020 presidential election. First, this is no ‘investigation’

  • County Hall Corner: The Pennsylvania Game Breaker0

    Step aside New Hampshire and Iowa; your days of hogging up all the electoral oxygen in the country may be seeing an end. Pennsylvania has become the true battlefield state in the country. California and New York are solidly blue, Texas and Florida are bright red, and our very own Keystone State, the fifth most

    Ballots, Watts Up, and Honors Earned0

    I couldn’t believe that a former president, and I’m talking Donald Trump, not Barack Obama, endorsed Dr. Mehmet Oz for a senatorial spot here in the great state of Pennsylvania. I’d really like to know the behind-the-scenes truth about that one. But hey, if he’s your man, get out and cast your vote. That is

  • County Hall Corner: Investigation of the Inflation Invasion0

    Candidate Joe Biden did not make very many public appearances when he was running for the presidency, but during one of these appearances in July of 2020, he made a strange remark, even by Biden standards. He announced, “Milton Friedman isn’t running the show anymore.” This comment flew over almost everyone’s head, but looking back

    Last week we featured the PA Gubernatorial race; this week, we will try to cut through the maze of the candidates running for US Senator from Pennsylvania for the seat currently held by Republican Pat Toomey.

    The upcoming Pennsylvania primary on May 17th, just a month and a half from now, will be one of the most difficult for PA voters in some time. The list of candidates is a long one, and even the most seasoned strategists are finding this year’s list daunting. This week we will be looking at

  • Common Sense Election Protection1

    A week doesn’t go by without me considering stopping by Lycoming County Voter Services and changing my political affiliation to Independent. The very thought that Senator Mitch McConnell is the face of the Republican Party is a good enough reason to change by itself. He is an example of the problem in Washington, not the

  • County Hall Corner: Is the Party Over?0

    The Joseph Schlitz Brewing Company was an American brewery based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and was once the largest producer of beer in the world. Schlitz first became the world’s top beer producer in 1902 and enjoyed that status for most of the first half of the twentieth century. As late as 1976, it was ranked

  • Absolute Presidential Absurdity2

    As I had written when Joe Biden was elected President, I would give him the opportunity to get to work for the American people before I passed any judgment on his job performance. President Biden now has the first quarter of 2021 under his belt, and my pen has been burning up to let you

  • County Hall Corner: A Wolf in Wolf’s Language2

    Governor Thomas Wolf is undoubtedly the most educated governor in Pennsylvania history.

  • County Hall Corner: Loving Hate0

    A common refrain among what passes for media these days is that America is more divided than ever. Those who did not sleep through their American history classes in school should know there has never been a time when our country was not divided in one way or another. Even during the Revolutionary War, estimates

    No matter who wins the election, I can’t wait for all this nonsense to be over. I am beyond tired of President Trump and Mr. Biden being in my mailbox, on the electronic device of my choice, feeling obligated to watch their debates, and flipping through channels to see what all the mainstream media geniuses

    As America breathlessly awaits the results of the contentious and hotly contested 2020 Presidential race between Donald Trump and Joe Biden, the race locally seems to be a given. If historical trends continue as they have in the past, Republican Presidential candidate and incumbent President Donald J. Trump should very handily carry Lycoming County. Webb

    There has never been a more important time in American history to understand, support, and exercise our freedoms empowered by the Constitution of our great land. This past summer, I teamed up with the good folks at National Range & Armory to offer some understanding and practical application of our 2nd Amendment rights. Wow, what

  • County Hall Corner: Neutered News0

    Back in the forgotten days of real journalism, a big story was described as a ‘front-page story,’ and its importance was shown by the headline’s font size. So, for many newspapers, when Pearl Harbor was attacked, or President Kennedy was assassinated, the headline filled half of the front page, known as ‘above the fold.’ Today,

  • I’m Not Biden It!1

    For the past couple of years, I have written that everyday hard-working Democrats need to take their party back. It is no longer the party of past presidents like Franklin D. Roosevelt, John F.
