  • Johnson retires the final seven batters he faces to help Keystone defeat Williamsport 5-10

    By BRETT R. CROSSLEY For the Webb Weekly  BEECH CREEK—At the start of the fourth inning Keystone’s Gabriel Johnson had already struck out the side once. He was locked in a pitcher’s duel against Williamsport’s Makai Day, who matched him in scoreless innings up to that point.  Johnson needed to stay close to perfect and

  • Diamonds in the Rough0

    The local high school baseball season recently came to a close, and every summer I do my very best to give out props. Two of my friends had exceptional years at the helm. Kudos to them and their talented teams. Williamsport had their best season on the diamond since 2002 and claimed consecutive district titles

    Separation of Sports and State0

    Before I get started, a tip of the Colorado Rockies hat to Kyle Datres. The former Loyalsock Township grad was drafted to begin his professional baseball career within the Rockies organization. At press time the North Carolina junior was hoping to lead his team to the College World Series. More on this next week. For

  • Bass, Birds and Benefits0

    It’s great to see the mountains that line the West Branch Valley aglow in that special spring-green foliage. At times, it didn’t seem like spring was ever going to get here — let alone summer. We truly live in one of the most beautiful places on God’s green earth, and it’s great to see everybody

  • The Summer Job Disappearing Act0

    Another monumental shift in society — in the summer of 1978, 60% of teenagers were working or looking for work. By 2016, only 35% were doing that! Now, don’t be quick to judge (as I was) and say the kids these days are too lazy to hit the job trail. Many are spending more time

  • A Lot of Work to be Done!0

    It’s great to see the bridge over Loyalsock Creek that connects Montoursville and Loyalsock is getting a makeover. Over 14,000 vehicles cross the bridge on a daily basis. That’s a pretty amazing amount of traffic crossing the old three-span truss bridge that was originally built in 1931. It was definitely due for some structural repair.

  • Building a Successful Program Takes More Than Just Good Players0

    Being a leader of men and women takes a certain type of skill, especially when dealing with a group and asking it to accomplish a set of goals over the course of a season. Each and every coach faces situations that will be difficult. They will also be a part of the athlete’s highest accomplishments

  • Who Says You Don’t Learn Anything in Kindergarten?0

    Lest anyone think that a significant mentor can’t enter your life early on, I’ve got other thoughts on that and wanted to share someone who was very influential to me at a tender age. How young? How about kindergarten? I was blessed to have the one, and only Mrs. Sipe lead the way in the

  • Waltman Off to Special Start for Warrior Run0

    When Warrior Run’s Madi Waltman entered the circle against Loyalsock, she knew it was going to take a big effort against one of her team’s toughest league foes. Waltman wasn’t just good; she was outstanding throughout the game as the Defenders defeated the Lancers 7-1, after being swept in the previous season. The victory also

  • Not Keen to the Club Scene0

    Some of you lucky elders out there may have been part of the famed Mickey Mouse Club. We won’t mention how long ago that actually was. But I will say Annette Funicello was probably one reason a few males signed up. I am here to report that I’ve been club less for quite a long

  • O’Malley Honored0

    (Note: Montoursville’s Tom O’Malley made his Major League debut in 1982 with the San Francisco Giants, and played with the White Sox, Orioles, Rangers, Expos, and Mets during a nine-year MLB career. He then played six seasons in the Japanese Baseball League winning both a regular season MVP award and the Japan Series MVP Award.)

  • Earth Day0

    Sunday is Earth Day and this year’s campaign centers on ending plastic pollution — but I’ll get to that in a minute. The idea for Earth Day was the brainchild of then U.S. Senator Gaylord Nelson. He organized the first Earth Day after witnessing the ravages of the 1969 massive oil spill in Santa Barbara,

  • From the Hardwood to the Diamond: Loyalsock Girls Make the Transition With Ease0

    As the basketball season came to a close Loyalsock softball coach Tom O’Malley knew the majority of his team would need a break before heading to the diamond to start practice.

  • Cremer & Crew0

    Last week, twelve boys’ and twelve girls’ high school basketball teams converged on Hershey’s Giant Center with the same goal in mind — capturing a PIAA State Basketball Championship. It mattered little that Mother Nature’s snowy wrath had postponed the yearly hoop festival for several days causing the event to be played Monday-Wednesday, rather than

  • County Hall Corner: Back to the Future0

    Those who follow this column might notice that there have been several articles this year relating to future plans and concerns for Lycoming County.

    Commitment and Excellence0

    Young people today are faced with so many more problems than when I was a student. Yes, we had the Cold War, and the fear of nuclear weapons, and Three Mile Island was another hot topic of the day, but what goes on around young folks today most of us never imagined. Please appreciate how

  • The “Sock”0

    No, this is not going to be a story about one of my favorite socks, but it is a piece about one of my favorite trout streams — the Loyalsock Creek. My wife and I left DuBois, PA following our wedding and our next stop that evening was just beyond Williamsport. I remember telling her

  • This Week’s LION: Donald Free, Road Warrior0

    Try this experiment. Take a white sheet of paper and put a black dot in the middle and ask ten different people what they see. Odds are, almost everyone will say, “I see a black dot.” Yet, that dot only takes about one percent or less of the white space — so why don’t people

  • 33 & 660

    33 & 66 The deluge of televised college basketball in recent weeks may verge on a bit of overkill. It almost seems that every college hoops game being played anywhere found itself on one television network or another. With the hysteria of March Madness now upon us, basketball junkies are in hoops heaven and office

  • One-Man Volleyball Team Promotes Positive Message For Students0

    School students confront a devil’s brew of issues and challenges these days such as school shootings, teenage suicide, drug and alcohol abuse, and bullying. One man, Bob Holmes, offers an unconventional, but hopefully, effective positive message of hope through his one-man volleyball exhibition and rally that he will be presenting at Loyalsock High School on

    We all know the importance of staying active as we age. Exercising not only keeps your weight down, but also boosts immunity and mood, and has been shown to promote heart health, delay or prevent osteoporosis and even prevent some types of cancer.
