  • Webb Weekly Gem of the Week… Big Games Abound as Area Athletes Open Winter Season0

    One year ago Mitchell Klingerman was sitting on the bench during a Loyalsock basketball game wishing for a chance to play. It wasn’t because of skills. It was simply because Loyalsock year in and year out has a lot of talent. Klingerman quietly went about his business, working hard after practice and through the off-season,

  • Christmas Spirit0

    Merry Christmas from my family and all of us at Webb Weekly to you and yours. What an absolutely fantastic time of year. The way the calendar falls this year, our publication hopefully is in your mailbox about a week before Christmas. And all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a

  • Sporting Matters with Spence… Just Get the Ball to Dom0

    Dominick Bragalone has always been a special player. I can vividly remember calling a few of his scholastic games. After each broadcast, I became more and more impressed with his blazing speed and effortless power. Dom was outstanding, and the opposition could only hope to contain him. It didn’t matter if they stuffed the box.

  • So You Want to be President…0

    I don’t know about you, but I’m not ready for the Arctic air or the holiday shopping season. We enjoyed some beautiful Autumn weather; hopefully, Mother Nature is not giving us a preview of the winter ahead. Yes, I know I should be better prepared for the official kick-off to the holiday hustle and bustle

  • Getting Your Boat Ready For Hibernation0

    Winter will eventually arrive; a season when we will no longer be able to enjoy regional boat fishing. Now is the time to get your boat ready for storage. The approach for long-term boat storage — periods without any use — is different than storing a boat between outings. Following a rigorous winterization routine helps

  • Lycoming Goal0

    My recent “Movember” awareness effort was an epic failure. An absolute disaster, like my unsuccessful write-in campaign. I am sorry folks, but I was forced to throw in the towel after a few days of growth. My lovely bride wasn’t impressed with the shaggy scruff above my lip. She gave me an ultimatum — shave

  • All Grown Up0

    If you didn’t survive your late teens and early twenties by living on Maruchan Ramen Noodles, I’m not sure that we can be friends, because obviously you don’t know real suffering. OK, OK, I’m kidding, but for a lot of us, the Ramen life was real. It is cheap, easy to make and fast. But

  • Being Thankful0

    • December 15, 2017

    Lately, the world seems like a crazy and chaotic place. Every day there is some new disaster, attack, or crisis. While it’s almost effortless to get wrapped up in the 24-hour news cycle, as we approach the Thanksgiving season, I’d like to take a moment here and focus on the good things in life. Some

  • 19th Annual Victorian Christmas and Other Related Activities to Take Place This Weekend0

    For the past 18 years the annual Victorian Christmas has been a wonderful and interesting way to help launch the Christmas holiday season. This year’s 19th edition of this holiday classic should be a fine continuance of this always highly anticipated event. From its founding by early member Nan Young, the purpose of recognizing and acknowledging

  • 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

  • County Hall Corner: Working Together0

    This past summer, there was a major battle over a proposed county ordinance for a five-dollar county fee on every non-exempt vehicle registered in the county. Hours and hours of debate ensued over it before it was finally passed at a County Commissioners Meeting on June 15, 2017, as Ordinance 2017-02. The story “The Five

  • Uptown Music Collective Kicks Off Performance Season0

    The Uptown Music Collective’s season will kick off on November 17th and 18th at the Community Arts Center in Williamsport with Women of Rock: The Music of Heart & Pat Benatar. When you think of women who really rock, the band Heart, and Pat Benatar are always near the top of any list. For the

  • 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

  • Firearms Deer Season Not Far Away0

    Well, it won’t be long until another firearms deer season is underway; Nov. 27 marks the starting date across the state. With the exception of WMUs 2B, 5C and 5D antlered deer only can be taken from opening day to Dec. 1 while both antlered and antlerless may be taken from Dec. 2-Dec. 9. Preparations

  • Players Come Up Big in Leadership Department With 35-24 Win Over Lewisburg0

    It was the opening round of the District 4 Class AAA playoffs, and Loyalsock found itself down by 17 points at the half. Lewisburg recovered an onside kick, scored. The Dragons then stopped Loyalsock on a fourth down, scored. Their third possession ended in a punt, but they came right back on their fourth to

  • A Most Wonderful Time of Year!0

    The days are flying by faster than Santa’s reindeer on Christmas Eve. Can you believe there are less than two weeks until Christmas Day? I guess I better get started on that Christmas shopping; I have been known to wait until the last minute. I have often thought a great plan would be to push

  • This Christmas…0

    OK, so as of this writing (which is Friday), I am well on my way to being ready for Christmas. I have a lot of my shopping done (most of which I can finish in the next couple of days), Erik and I are headed out to get our tree this weekend, and I have

  • Fishing with Mike O’Brien … Reflections From A Pool Of Memories: A Gift From Dad0

    The pleasures of fishing are best when shared. This was one of those times. When a shared love for angling brought father and son together. Forever bound in one of those “firsts” that can be recalled by either party as vividly as if occurring only minutes before. An experience never to be forgotten by the

  • Fishing with Mike O’Brien… Butterfish: Little Fish Big Science0

    It is doubtful you’ve ever fished for or eaten butterfish. Butterfish are a thin, deep-bodied ocean fish that travel in large schools, typically offshore. These small, silvery species are a favorite food source for large game fish and are favorite bait for anglers in pursuit of tuna. I have also known anglers who were fishing

  • Sporting Matters with Spence… His Name is Elfie0

    Tis the season folks and instead of sharing a story on sports — I’ve decided to chime in on something much more important. Yes. It’s time to talk about the Elf of the Shelf. For those of you without young children perhaps this article will help explain that creepy little thing that has been flooding

  • This Week’s LION: Tammey Aichner – Light Bearer0

    In a recent County Hall Corner column, I remarked about the awesome social problems faced due to family breakdowns and the crime and drugs that result from them. I stated, “Instead of gossiping about a troubled neighbor or relative, try to refer them to someone who could help them. As the saying goes, instead of

  • County Hall Corner: Budget Baby Birthday0

    In this column last year at this time, I wrote that a crude analogy could be made between giving birth to a baby and developing a government budget. The baby is incubated in joy, followed by a long and tedious growth process in the womb, and finally, in due time, through much agony and pain,

  • The Roving Sportsman… Christmas Gift Ideas0

    With less than two weeks of shopping days left until the arrival of Christmas morning, we need to take a serious look at a couple of great ideas for that hard-to-buy-for sportsman on your gift-giving list. The ideas will include items that I have used and found to be highly useful and handy for any

  • WAHS Millionaire Singers Perform at the White House0

    Thirty-two members of the Williamsport Area High School Millionaire Singers performed at the White House on Saturday, Dec. 2, for holiday tourists. Under the direction of Mr. Kent Weaver and Mr. Samuel Robinson, the group sang a medley of holiday tunes for about three hours in the East Wing of the presidential home, the longest performance

  • Outdoors with Ken Hunter… What Color is a Deer?0

    When I was just a young fella, my grandfather would take me hunting with him. His way of hunting deer was to hit the woods at a steady stride and cover as many miles as possible in a single day. Every mile or so he would suddenly stop and point and say, “There goes one.”

  • Webb Weekly Gem of the Week… Loyalsock Looks Primed for Another Successful Season Under Insinger0

    A big season for Loyalsock kicked off with its annual “Meet the Lancers” night as the team hosted Sayre for a preseason scrimmage. The Lancers displayed their quickness throughout the five-quarter game, winning each quarter and pulling away through the final two for double-digit wins. The game was characteristic of a Loyalsock win. The Lancers

  • Calling the Game0

    The winter high school sports season gets underway in full swing this week. As a prelude, the high school athletic director was addressing an assemblage of parents passing on information about their sons’ and daughters’ participation. As he concluded, he offered this piece of advice, “Remember,” he said, “winter sports are played indoors, and your

  • Local Blue Star Mothers To Participate In Wreaths Across America Event On Saturday, December 160

    A special Christmastime salute to deceased veterans will take place this Saturday, December 16, when the Blue Star Mothers of America participate in a nationwide effort called “Wreaths Across America.” The local chapter, North Central Pennsylvania 12 Chapter, will also be participating and will hold its event at 10 a.m. at Wildwood Cemetery. As volunteers

  • Christmas Commerce0

    Well, the Christmas season is definitely in full swing around our area. My barometer is always the traffic on the Golden Strip and how many folks are getting their Christmas tree at Tebbs on Four Mile Drive. Robin and the ladies have the place looking better than ever! I love the new sign; the pre-drilled

  • Christmas is Coming…0

    Seriously y’all, I think I need an intervention. Maybe it’s the weather? Or it could be pure procrastination in its purest form, but I have accomplished next to nothing as far as the holidays are concerned. But, whether or not I am aboard the Polar Express the train to Christmastown keeps moving! I’ll get on

  • Grit: December 4, 1966 – City Motorists Find Deck Parking to Their Liking0

    In the three days Williamsport’s Midtown Parking Deck has been in operation 1,020 vehicles have made use of it with what Charles A. Szybist, executive director of the Williamsport Parking Authority last night termed, “a high degree of success.” The daily breakdown was: Saturday, 540, Friday, 404 and Thursday, (from 1p.m. to 10 p.m.) 76.

  • From the Publisher… A Ringing Remembrance0

    The most wonderful time of year is underway up and down the West Branch Valley. To say it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas is an understatement. It is great, in the world of today, that our area still has so much Christmas spirit and a great understanding of the reason for the season.
