  • County Hall Corner: Broadband or Bust0

    Lycoming County is the largest county in area in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, covering over 1,200 square miles. That is a larger area than the entire state of Massachusetts. But, unlike the Bay State, which has 6.8 million people living there, Lycoming County has about 114,000 residents. Though this figures out to a population density

  • County Hall Corner: Not the Last Laugh0

    It all started with Jason York, director of the Lycoming County Resource Recovery Facility, otherwise known as the County Landfill. As there are often expenditure items that need to be approved by the county commissioners, Jason is something of a regular at the weekly work and regular sessions of the Lycoming County Commissioner meetings. Jason

  • Preparing for the Polls: Part 7 – A Positive Negative0

    An old sales trick is to offer something and something vs. something and nothing. For example, an effective salesman does not ask if you want to make an appointment with him or her, rather they ask, “Would morning be better for you, or would you prefer afternoon?” That appears to be the choice that Williamsport

  • Preparing for the Polls — Part 6: Why Here, Why Now?0

    In this series on preparing for the November election, four columns have been devoted to the complicated issue of changing the city charter of Williamsport. Two very different proposals for change are on the ballot, and if both receive a majority by the voters, there will probably be a long and tenuous journey through a

    Lycoming County is unique in a number of ways, and one of which is the prevalence of local banks. The banking industry continues to consolidate nationally and even internationally, but in our area, Woodlands Bank, Jersey Shore State Bank, and Muncy Bank and Trust Company have survived and even grown as local entities. These banks

    Marketing people know that the most difficult part of advertising is just getting attention. Cognitive science reveals that there are two kinds of attention — conscious and unconscious. Conscious attention is when we purposely pay attention to something because we feel we need this information. It could be anything from an ad for something we

  • County Hall Corner: Taking Time for Training2

    When a person is elected to local office, they quickly realize that there is a lot they do not know. Very few residents of the county recognize how much time that municipal officials spend in training. It starts with the County Commissioners who actively participate in the programs of CCAP, the County Commissioners Association of

  • Preparing for the Polls — Part 5: Considering the Home Rule Option0

    Quickly reviewing the issue on the November ballot for Williamsport voters, two questions will be posed relating to the future of the city’s government. One is termed the “Optional Third-Class City Charter Question,” which for this series has been termed the “Council-Manager” option, and the other is termed the “Home Rule Question.” In the last

  • County Hall Corner: EMS in Crisis0

    One feature of the current County Commissioner board is that they are not deaf to concerns of the community. Unfortunately, being willing to listen does not necessarily mean they can do much about the problem. One of these concerns is the ongoing problems of volunteer fire companies and EMS service. In July of 2017, the

    When home computers were introduced in the mid-80s, they ran on a computer operating system called DOS. The owner of a home computer was limited if they did not understand this seemingly foreign language that they had to deal with. In 1991, a small publishing company named IDB came out with a book entitled, “DOS
