  • It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!0

    There is so much good going on in our area to celebrate the Christmas season, get out and enjoy! Most of the activities and events can be found right here in the pages of the Webb Weekly. I am proud of the place we call home. We take care of our own especially during the

  • 50 Years of Family, Friends and Trust0

    It seems like it was only yesterday. My Dad taking me to Mister Donut on the Golden Strip for a Bavarian filled and a chocolate milk. I was knee-high to a grasshopper but can still envision the old store and the coffee mug my Father would sip from. It was different years ago, a donut

  • Grace, Thanks and Giving0

    Happy Thanksgiving! What an absolutely wonderful day. No shopping, no wrapping or putting together of anything. Just family, friends and football. Love and friendship celebrated with that perfectly cooked bird and all the trimmings, followed up with a dessert of your choice. Then a little Turkey Bowl action, the annual backyard football game. This event

  • Next Question….0

    Did you watch the debate? What candidate do you like? Who do you feel has the edge at this point? These questions and topics are being talked about no matter where you go. It is great to see all the interest building for the 2016 Presidential run. My hope is all Americans realize the next

  • The Creators and Protectors of Freedom0

    “This Flag is presented on behalf of the President of the United States and a grateful Nation as an expression of appreciation for the honorable and faithful service rendered by your husband. Thank you and God bless.” These were the words spoken by Commander Abe Pittenger, American Legion Post 35, as he presented the folded

  • The Cost and the Cover Up0

    I was both troubled and intrigued by the runaway Army blimp happening of last week. If you haven’t heard about the story, a $235 million dollar military intelligence gathering airship broke free from its moorings in Aberdeen, MD. It was stationed at the Army Proving Grounds. The unmanned Intel balloon crashed down in the hills

  • Tricks, Treats and Folks Seeking Elected Seats0

    My favorite week of the year on page 2. I get to dress up as your friendly neighborhood Spiderman. I thought about a different look for you this year, maybe Barak Obama but with Webb as my last name there is really only one choice of attire. Now for my public service message for Halloween

  • Our 2nd Amendment and Common Sense0

    It is always great to hear from so many about my writings and what’s on your minds. Recently our Second Amendment rights have been the hot topic. The proposed Ordinance 371 in Loyalsock Township has prompted many to reach out to me, as has the recent cowardly and despicable act that took place at Umpqua

  • Coach Crews and a Millionaire Revival0

    Wow! It is hard to believe we are heading into week seven of the high school football season. One of the great stories this year has taken place up on “the hill” at the Millionaires newly remodeled STA Stadium. With new Head Coach Charles “call me Chuck” Crews leading the way, the Cherry and White

  • All Lives Matter0

    I am tired of the racist, prejudicial and discriminatory views, actions and policy that go silently unchallenged each and every day in our great Nation. The politically correct muzzle and fear of the liberal response prevent our elected leaders and representatives from speaking up and challenging the absurd. Meanwhile individuals that are no more than

  • “Real” Reality TV0

    I often wonder how blurred the line has become between what folks perceive as truth and everyday life and what is scripted, talked about and controlled in the reality television world. There is no talent required to be the star of most reality programming. The Kardashians are just vulgar people, name one real talent they

  • Sounds, Sights and Memories of September0

    Summer sailed right by and all area schools are now open for the 2015–2016 school year. The words ‘school is open, drive safely’, always ring out this time of year. However, judging from some driving I have witnessed, maybe a little refresher course on lawful and safe driving is needed. Motorists must stop at least

  • Keeping Up with West End’s Boys of Summer0

    Wow! What a Summer of baseball. Michelle and I were blessed to have both boys reach the Babe Ruth World Series in the same year. And that rumor Todd Bartley of ESPN Radio started – that Jimmy and Hunter get their ability from their Mother – it’s true. When I last left you (Welcome to

  • Welcome to Williamsport from Klamath Falls0

    To all who have traveled to the “Home of Little League Baseball” welcome to our area. Good luck to the players, coaches, and fans. The road you have navigated to be here is an amazing one! May everyone have a safe and happy stay here in the West Branch Valley. The game Carl Stotz founded

  • Sort of a Break and an Update0

    I was going to say let’s take a break from politics this week. I get tired of the facts that I uncover in researching stories. Both Democrats and Republicans are responsible for the heinous numbers I come across. I could not turn my head to one, however. Jeb Bush served up a belt high fast

  • Hillary’s No Dinner Cash Dash0

    Folks, we need to change. I understand that an individual’s political affiliation is engrained in them. It may have begun many moons ago when they were young. They either believed the teaching of their parents and maybe grandparents or they rebelled against possibly their father and became a flaming liberal or radical right wing conservative.

  • Keystone Debt and Deception0

    Governor Wolf just doesn’t get it and he never will. Us folks in the Keystone State are in for a long and tough four years, minus the time our Governor has already put in. This past week he made a big to do over the GOP Lawmakers who control the PA Legislature paying too high

  • Name That Nation?0

    In July 2012 our State Department released a report on terrorism around the World. This obviously occurred during Mr. Obama’s administration. One Nation jumped to the top of the report as leader in active state-sponsored terrorism. Sponsor of most increased terrorist acts since 2011. Provider of financial, logistic support and material for terrorist and militant

  • Saving the Chief0

    In last week’s article, ‘Where’s the Chief?’ (Which can be found at Webbweekly.com), I explained my connection to Chief Woapalanee and all those summers spent in his shadow at Brandon Little League. I affectionately referred to him as Chief Knockahomer. I was dismayed to see him removed from his post at the West Entrance to

  • Where’s the Chief?0

    It was early morning a couple of Saturdays ago. As I headed down Market Street and crossed through confusion corner a large empty space was evident at the west entrance to Brandon Park. Chief Knockahomer was gone, not there, as in left the reservation. The 24-foot wood sculpture whose proper name is Chief Woapalanne had

  • The Agenda For Our Next President0

    As Donald Trump threw his wallet into the ring to become a Republican candidate for President I began thinking, where should our next President start to right the American ship. What are the most important issues to save our country from the Primrose Path our leaders in Washington have walked us all down? How do

  • Happy Fathers Day!0

    There is so much going on here at home, across the state, in Washington and around the world I should share with you but we’re going to leave it alone this week. The most important item is a tip of the cap to all Dads, Grandfathers and those who fill the Fatherly role. I was

  • The Top Candidate0

    It is well known that President George Washington had wooden teeth; President Abraham Lincoln is always imagined with his top hat and beard. Our next President may become known for his long ears. In case you missed it – Bugs Bunny announced his candidacy for the Republican nomination to run for President of the United

  • Be on the Lookout for Mother Nature… She is Armed and Dangerous.0

    There is nothing Mr. Obama might say or do that would surprise me. This past week he left another real zinger go. As ISIS is advancing in Syria and had just gained control of Ramandi, the largest city in Western Iraq, Mr. Obama was truly focused on the real threat to our national security here

  • Your May Vote Counts!0

    Finally primary election time is upon us. No more ads, no more commercials, no more of those signs blocking the beauty of spring. There are some “points of interest” for you the voter I’d like to make you aware of or provide a little reminder about. First and most important, your vote matters, it is

    Happy Mother’s Day! Thank you to all that provide the most special and important gift of a Mother’s love. Thank you for taking care of our children, the most important blessings in our lives. Thank you to those who fill the role of Mom when it becomes vacant by tragedy, fate or circumstance. A Mother’s

  • Hillary Belongs in Jail And She Wants Your Vote0

    They just don’t get it! Why on God’s green Earth would the Democratic Party support Hillary Rodham Clinton’s bid for the White House? Name one positive thing she has ever done for our Country? She is the Queen of Greed, all about self and wealth. There is no line of ethics or legality she will

  • Revitalizing Billtown’s Sports Swagger A Business and Community Effort0

    Demolition and construction. These two words equal future. As in moving forward for the best of a community, city or an area. I have always been fascinated by tearing down and rebuilding. My Mom is proud to tell that my first word was bulldozer or something that sounded like it. As I looked in through

  • A Law and Order Open House and Our 2nd Amendment Responsibility0

    Tip of the cap to the Williamsport Bureau of Police on their recently held open house. The event was a great way for the citizens of Williamsport to meet, greet and understand that the police are just “people in the neighborhood” trying to protect and serve your community. It was also a way to get

  • Freedom and the Despicables. Obama, Kerry, Reid and Maddow0

    April fools! Thanks to all for sharing a laugh and a good old-fashioned spoof last week. The Historic Bowman Field project will only occur if I hit a big jackpot playing Powerball or Mega Millions. I did hear Bob Beiter was glad when he found out Janice Hiller didn’t really commit him to all of

  • Home, Autumn and Yogi0

    As I traveled the Country this Summer the true beauty of our great Nation was amazing. From the mile high mountains of the Rockies in Denver to the barren Grand Canyon type landscape of Southern Oregon and our Western states. Their mountains are magnificent in a totally different way and yes, I did venture northwest

  • Truth and R-E-S-P-E-C-T0

    Well, let’s get right to it. The words that Williamsport’s City Council President Mr. Bill Hall spoke in referencing me, claiming that I apologized to him in the name of “political personal destruction and smears, lies, innuendos and half truths,” is the farthest thing from fact. Nico Salvatori picked up Mr. Hall’s comments in covering

  • The Uncommon View of Commonsense0

    As I flipped through the channels the other night, catching up on the day’s events I stopped and watched about two minutes of Al Sharpton. I often watch Al to see what he’s spewing. It was the same old message, so on to Fox News I went. They had a gentleman cooking bacon by firing

    Think spring! Two sure signs that warm weather is just around the corner take place in the days ahead. First we have the 56th Annual West Branch Builders Home Show. The event will take place at Lycoming College’s Rec. Center. It is a great way to get out and about. Let it help you put

    A sincere thanks to everyone I spoke with, left kind messages, texted me and emailed me. Your support of my article “You’re Fired” last week was overwhelming.

    President Barack Hussein Obama your services are no longer needed, you are fired Sir! I will no longer recognize you with the title President. Because, Sir, you do not act like the President of the United States of America. This position is held by someone that respects our Great land and the people that founded

    No, I am not talking about our President. Jackie Robinson West Little League is the latest of cheaters to come to the Little League World Series. As I watched the story unfold it truly made me sad. It was such a special LLWS this past year. Great games and great teams made the 75th anniversary
