    I now have a nine-year-old son who is my pride and joy. I refer to him here quite often. Jensen is a great looking kid who plays Xbox and several youth sports. He loves the outdoors and is halfway through the third grade. Jensen is so dang spoiled and has thousands of Nerf guns. J

  • County Hall Corner – Help is Three-Digits Away0

    Everyone knows about calling 911 when there is an emergency requiring the police, fire, or ambulance services. What is not nearly as well known is calling 211, the number for information on available social services. At a recent County Commissioners Meeting, Jack McKernan distributed pamphlets to the “Help Line” serving North-Eastern Pennsylvania, including Lycoming County.

  • The Roving Sportsman… Lesson Learned0

    I begin with a confession. Yes, I did recently pen an article in which I discussed choices of rifles and calibers when it comes to deer hunting. And, yes, I sang the praises of a .260 caliber rifle and the 120-grain ballistic tip bullet it uses. The truth remains that I have, over the years,

  • PA 2-1-1 System Making a Difference: Lycoming County United Way Helping to Fund the Solution0

    If you have an emergency and need the services of a first responder you have an easy three-digit number — 911 — that will help you summon assistance quickly, but when people need assistance due to unfortunate circumstances or an emergency in which they need the help of a social service agency, there is a

  • County Hall Corner: Getting to High Ground0

    After several severe storms that depleted the federal insurance programs, a law known as the Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2012 was enacted. The idea was to require flood insurance premiums to actually reflect the real risk of flooding. At the time of the enactment, the National Flood Insurance Program was $24 billion in

  • The Jaded Eye … A Double Dip on Broad Street0

    The white, bent, rusted pole that held the “Tall Fox Novelties” sign remains close to the curb on Broad Street in Montoursville. But the orange, blue and white Rexall thermometer in the alley by the old store is long gone. Let me bring you some warm memories on a cold day. Maybe you frequented one

  • The Roving Sportsman… The Ultimate Deer Rifle0

    The overnight pole light guided my steps as I crossed the yard, headed to the patch of woods in the hollow in the center of our property. Once leaving the area illuminated by the artificial light, I had only the stars overhead that were dancing heal to toe to aid in my travel. It would

  • Proceed with Caution0

    The intersection of ‘achieving goals’ and ‘it was meant to be’ can be a very precarious crossroad. There are no traffic lights, yield signs, or uniformed sentries to guide you through the turmoil safely. The decisions to speed up, slow down, or turn around and plan the journey for another day are instantaneous. If you

  • American Rescue Workers Need Donations0

    Last week was Thanksgiving, a time centered around appreciation of the blessings in our lives, including family, friends and food. But, for over 400 men, women, and children right here in Lycoming County, this holiday would have been spent alone without the turkey and trimmings if not for the American Rescue Workers’ annual holiday meals.

  • Vandevere’s View0

    In recent weeks there has been much reported regarding the collegiate recruitment process. A lot of it has been negative — usually centering on ‘under the table’ payments or other questionable ‘perks’ to lure talented individuals to specific schools. Throughout all of these proceedings, I don’t ever recall a recruit being swayed by the presence

  • Murrelle Shoots an 81 to Become Sayre’s First State Qualifier in Golf0

    Sayre’s Ryan Murrelle walked out of the clubhouse with an ear-to-ear smile after receiving the news he just qualified for the PIAA Golf Championships. The two prior years were filled with disappointment as Murrelle failed to qualify due to one stroke in both instances. Those two disappointing years helped fuel Murrelle to the finish as

  • Mercy!0

    For some strange reason that one word of emphasis crooned in singer Roy Orbison’s 1964 hit song “Pretty Woman” has stayed with me over the years. If you’ve never heard the song, give it a visit on the Internet. It is only one word but it surely emphasizes the message of his song. Mercy may

  • Outdoors with Ken Hunter… Pheasant Hunting Where to From Here?0

    For those of us who are old enough, we certainly have fond memories of the “good old days” of pheasant hunting — especially in our part of the state. I remember well heading out into some nearby fields for a couple of hours of pheasant hunting; I didn’t have a dog, but I was often

    When Ken Burns’ latest documentary effort, dealing with the Vietnam War was shown recently on PBS, there was probably no audience with a greater interest in this documentary and how it presented the Vietnam experience than Vietnam veterans. Webb Weekly talked to several local Vietnam veterans to get their take on Burns’ presentation. Mike McMunn

    It’s great to see Head Coach James Franklin’s Penn State Nittany Lions off to such a great start. Granted, they haven’t really been tested by a top-notch opponent yet. It was good to see Pitt back on the schedule. A Penn’s Woods rivalry game that should happen every year! Pitt isn’t quite up to par

    Penn State opened their home schedule with Eastern Michigan. Other than for the excitement of a new season and plenty of points being scored, this is a game that normally would soon be forgotten.
