  • Ageless Fall Trends0

    There is a 28-year age difference between myself and my mother, but despite the generational divide, we tend to gravitate toward similar items because true style knows no age or age limit. We also both love fall, and are always happy to welcome back sweater weather. Here are the five trends we’re both eyeing up

    Painting Pictures0

    Disclaimer. We are a weekly publication. My articles are submitted on Friday mornings. I do my best to hit these extended deadlines. The paper is usually done and everything is ready to be sent to the printers. My lovely editor is often waiting for Sporting Matters by Jamie Spencer. I will occasionally leave her hanging.

  • UPMC Electrophysiologist: When is an Irregular Heartbeat a Concern?0

    Our hearts are amazing organs, and we can often take them for granted. They steadily pump away, rhythmically beating life into our bodies. But what happens when your heartbeat becomes irregular, erratic, or even skips a beat? These incidents are called heart palpitations, and for most people, heart palpitations are a once-in-a-blue-moon occurrence. However, some

  • State Game Lands Tours Just Up the Road0

    Roll the windows down, enjoy the scenery and breathe in the fresh air. The Pennsylvania Game Commission’s driving tours through state game lands are just up the road. Eight tours are scheduled throughout the state in 2023, the first of which will be held Sunday, Oct. 1. The tours provide a good example of the

  • The Roving Sportsman… A Bear Hunt With a Twist

    The Roving Sportsman… A Bear Hunt With a Twist0

    Over the years, I have had the good fortune to have taken several black bears and one grizzly. The grizzly came as a bonus on a Dall sheep hunt in Alaska, and the black bear hunts took place in Pennsylvania and Idaho. Now, I was hoping to hunt for black bear where the chance of

  • County Hall Corner: The Other Police Force0

    Ever notice how drivers automatically slow down when they see a police car, even if it is on the opposite side of the road? Or how we barely notice people who walk by us on the street, but when a police officer walks by, we become very aware that they are there. Engaging a police

  • New CWD Rules More Convenient for Pennsylvanians Hunting Out-of-State0

    Protecting Pennsylvania’s deer and elk from Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) remains a priority, now as ever. That hasn’t changed. But the rules for hunters who harvest those or any other cervids outside of Pennsylvania or within parts of it have. Previously, hunters were prohibited from bringing “high-risk” carcass parts from such animals taken in other

    There are often a lot of jokes to be made about living in a small town. Some ‘big city folk’ think there is nothing to be said for living in a small town. I disagree. Community. Community is to be said for a small town. Support for the people you live with, even if you

  • Appalachian Horse Help Rescue Seeking Financial and Volunteer Support0

    What happens when a horse or other large animal is abused, or the owner can no longer take care of it? What happens in the event a traveler is transporting large animals, and the trailer or towing vehicle is disabled? The answer most often lies with the folks at Appalachian Horse Help Rescue at 1201

  • Pennsylvania Gas and Electric Company Donates $1,000 To Upper Fairfield Township Emergency Management Agency Toward Purchase of Life Saving Equipment

    Pennsylvania Gas and Electric Company Donates $1,000 To Upper Fairfield Township Emergency Management Agency Toward Purchase of Life Saving Equipment0

    The cost of life-saving and safety equipment by local government entities can often be burdensome for them, so when public-spirited companies opt to donate money toward the costs of these items, it proves to be a welcome thing. That was the case when Pennsylvania Gas and Electric Company recently donated $1,000 toward the costs of

  • No Words. #4.

    No Words. #4.0

    Jersey Shore is a close-knit community. She always was. The area residents have responded when they found out. The Engle family needed some major love. Much has been done to praise Senior Bulldog Max. The support is overwhelming. Many other area school districts have also stepped up. I loved seeing all of the tributes and

  • An Honor Bestowed0

    As stadium monikers go Lycoming College’s Robert L. Shangraw Athletic Complex, Person Field, Coach Frank Girardi Stadium is quite a mouthful. But the latest name to be honored at its Union Avenue address was added before the beloved coach’s family, friends, and a few hundred of his former players during pre-game ceremonies at the Warriors’

  • Fall Layering Basics0

    Fall is just about here, friends; sure, we still have a few weeks of semi-sweltering heat left, but autumnal winds are slowly blowing in. To me, the principal manner of dressing when it comes to fall is to layer well. While you probably already have a slew of traditional layering basics like long-sleeve shirts and

  • The Roving Sportsman… Hunting the Allagash0

    The North Maine Woods (NMW) has, for a long time, been a popular destination for outdoor enthusiasts. It encompasses over 3.5 million acres and is visited by over 100,000 travelers each year. Within the northernmost tip of the NMW lies Aroostook County, and within this county is the area of some 84,000 acres known as

  • UPMC Therapist: Don’t Stay Silent About Suicide0

    September is National Suicide Prevention and Awareness Month and it’s important to not shy away from conversations about one of the leading causes of death in the U.S. In 2021, almost 50,000 deaths in the United States were due to suicide. Attempts and thoughts about suicide have even higher numbers; 12.3 million American adults thought

  • CWD – Still a Threat0

    Unfortunately, CWD has not gone away, and in fact, it continues to expand its boundaries in our state. Prions, the infectious agent that causes a neurological disease, is always fatal. Prions are shed through saliva, urine, and feces. What’s a little unsettling is the fact that animals with CWD may not show any clinical signs

  • County Hall Corner: Something Special About Old Glory0

    As a member of the Clinton Township Volunteer Fire Company, I help out on the 9/11 Ride each year, doing whatever needs to be done. The ride actually begins at 6:00 p.m., but our volunteer members are there as early as 7:00 a.m. to set up the barricades, prepare for the vendors, etc. The riders

  • Two Decades of Helping You Find the Guy0

    As most of you who read my column regularly know — I love to use musical references and lyrics occasionally. As we have quietly been celebrating our 20th year of publishing the Webb Weekly, The Steve Miller Band seemed to hit it right on the nose with the words — time keeps on slipping, slipping,

  • Becoming a Dog Person

    Becoming a Dog Person0

    I had never considered myself to be a dog person. Not that I was anti-dog or anything; I just didn’t think they were for me. I was always a cat lady (and still am!). When Steve started talking about getting a dog four-ish years ago, I was a little hesitant. But I figured I’d be

  • Three Notable Car Shows to Take Place Saturday, September 160

    If you are a car enthusiast, then Saturday, September 16 is just the day for you, for on that day, three major car shows will take place not more than a few miles from each other in the Muncy area. These are the “Corvettes on Main Street” that takes place in Muncy, put on by

  • Encores and New Horizons Band

    Encores and New Horizons Band0

    “Encores” is the Williamsport version of New Horizons Band, an international organization offering “entry points to music-making for adults, including those with no musical experience.” That’s from the NHB mission statement, which also invites older folks who once played an instrument but haven’t done so since they were young. And it even covers those who

  • Tradition0

    If there were such a thing as a sports dictionary, future editions might list the definition of tradition as ‘a past observance of athletic competition carried on by players, teams and community entities with much anticipation, interest, and fervor.’ As we drove home from Gettysburg on September’s first Saturday after watching grandson Tucker play his

  • Coming Home0

    Williamsport’s Treyson Potts has attended many PSU games. He was a huge fan as a kid. Yes. Potts has many ties to State College. Several in his family went to State. He always wanted to play for the Nittany Lions. The dynamic running back was on their radar. But a few knee injuries during his

  • Burnout0

    With the official first day of autumn just ahead and school in full gear, you may be asking yourself, “Where did summer go”? It feels like summer months become more fleeting each year, and September is a blip before the busy time of Halloween, Thanksgiving, and year’s end. The sports, schedules, activities, and work commitments

  • UPMC Pediatrician: Keeping Up with Immunizations0

    It’s that time of year again. Everyone is getting back in the swing of things with school starting. Your child might be due for a check-up at the doctor’s office as well. This annual check-up is a great way to check in and see how your child’s health is developing. Usual topics of discussion include

  • Flathead Fishing0

    It’s not unusual for the subject of fishing to come up when a bunch of us are sitting around sipping our morning coffee. A couple of weeks ago, Tim Herr informed the gang that he and recent Muncy Bank retiree Steve Naylor were planning a guided trip to the lower Susquehanna for some catfishing. Now,

  • Help Me Help Kids with Cancer0

    So, three years ago I decided to join ‘The Great Cycling Challenge for Kids with Cancer.’ I have long contributed to St. Jude’s ever since I met Angelina Miele — who loved SJN basketball when I was coaching, and in particular Alize Johnson, Angelina sadly passed away from this insidious disease. My heart aches to

  • County Hall Corner: Suicide is Not Painless0

    At the Lycoming County Commissioners Meeting on Thursday, August 31st, the commissioners made a proclamation that they have done for the past few years. They declared September as Suicide Prevention Month. It will take more than a decree to turn around this terrible source of death. In acknowledging the importance of this proclamation was Lycoming

  • Remembrance, Understanding And Education0

    It was a beautiful, sun-drenched, latesummer morning. It appeared all was right in the world. The early day’s sun was still very warm, the smell of fall was in the air. I dropped my sons off for school and daycare. Jimmy had just started kindergarten, and Hunter was a very young preschooler. I was looking

  • Never Forget0

    “Even the smallest act of service, the simplest act of kindness, is a way to honor those we lost, a way to reclaim that spirit of unity that followed 9/11.” – President Barack Obama Monday will mark the 22nd anniversary of the 9/11 Terrorist Attacks on the US. After you enjoy your weekend with friends,

    22nd Annual 9/11 Memorial Ride Takes Place Monday, September 110

    Even though it has been 22 years since the tragic events of September 11, 2001, the organizers of the annual 9/11 Memorial Motorcycle Ride continue to honor and remember the sacrifice and courage of those who were lost on that awful day with their tribute memorial event — the “Remember, Honor, Ride” 9/11 Motorcycle Ride.

  • The Other “Tom Terrific”: A Few of Cruise’s Offbeat Winners0

    Early fall is typically a dead time at the movies. So now that Tom Cruise’s latest vehicle is no longer showing, your Webb critic offers a few of the actor’s other titles to tide you over till Kenneth Branagh’s “Haunting in Venice,” Martin Scorsese’s “Killers of the Flower Moon” and Ridley Scott’s “Napoleon” later this

  • Parlante Española0

    Throughout the 12-day run of last month’s Little League World Series, a familiar face to both the fans in the stands and those watching TV was that of ESPN’s multi-lingual reporter Sebastian Salazar, whose insightful interactions with players and spectators brought to life stories beyond the playing field. Raised in Washington, D.C., the son of
