    Remembering the Agnes Flood 50 Years Later0

    During this week, 50 years ago, Lycoming County and the rest of the area of the Susquehanna River Basin were in the throes of the most destructive and severe flooding seen in the area up to that time. The flood was caused by heavy rains from June 20 to 24, 1972, from the remnants of

  • Grit: June 25, 1972 – Big Flood Leaves Great Devastation Throughout Area0

    Flood waters continue to recede along the West Branch of the Susquehanna River today, but leave in their wake a toll of destruction in Williamsport and Lycoming County, unmatched since the monstrous flood of 1936.

  • County Hall Corner: And Now, A Word from My Readers0

    Over the years that I have been writing articles for Webb Weekly, I occasionally get feedback in the form of cards and letters sent to our office and also from face-to-face discussions. The biggest response I ever received was an article defending Dr. Seuss’s books. The pushback against the ‘cancel culture’ fanatics who somehow found

  • This Week’s LION: Junior Patriots0

    After the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, the United States suddenly became very patriotic. Yet, we are now decades away from that date. The Lycoming County 911 Motorcycle Ride has young people riding in this event that were even born after that day. That same patriotic impulses have been shown in the past couple

After reaching out to Laurel Green with Montgomery Parks and Recreation for a location, a simple safety course for the kids quickly

  • Grit: June 15, 1958 – Township Supplants Borough as Second Largest Subdivision, Census Indicates0

    When it comes to population, it appears that Loyalsock Township has ousted South Williamsport from second place among political subdivisions in Lycoming County. The Loyalsock school board has released the results of a recent census of all residents of the township and the total population reported is 8,331. This is a spectacular increase over the

  • County Hall Corner: Lies Live Forever0

    It is amazing how everyone can know that something is true when in reality, it is not. This is best illustrated by quotes. Everyone knows that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s character Sherlock Holmes states, “Elementary, my dear Watson,” Humphrey Bogart told his pianist to “Play it again, Sam,” and Tarzan told Jane, “Me Tarzan, You

  • Remembering Newberry’s Legendary ‘Burt the Barber’0

    It was with sadness that I learned two weeks ago of the passing of Burt Ware Jr., a longtime barber in the Newberry area. He had gained a great reputation as a beloved barber and friend to many people. I thought it might be appropriate to dust off an article I wrote about Burt 13

  • Local Physician First in Area to Offer Innovative Direct Primary Care0

    There has been a lot of discussion throughout the nation about delivering adequate health care services to patients in the system. Much of this involves billing and waiting to receive those services. Medical professionals are starting to think outside the box, and one of the ways they are doing this is through a concept called

  • 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
