  • The Bookworm Sez: “The Great Unexpected: A Novel” by Dan Mooney0

    You had your reasons. That’s what you tell people after you’ve made a decision. Things were left up to you, you looked at the possibilities, and there was no need for discussion.

    The St. John Neumann Regional Academy’s 2019-20 season suddenly came to a close. We were nipped 59-57 by Southern Foulton at the horn. It was a tremendous game, but unfortunately all good things come an end. 22-5. Mid Penn and District 4 Champs. PIAA Sweet 16. Impressive, but it still hurts. Everyone took it very

    The county commissioners refused permission to the Standard Construction Company of Altoona to cross the Montoursville bridge across Loyalsock Creek with a steam shovel.

  • What is a Widowmaker Heart Attack?0

    A heart attack happens when blood flow to your heart muscle is blocked for long enough to damage the muscle. If blood flow isn’t restored quickly, the heart muscle begins to die from a lack of oxygen, and non-functioning scar tissue forms in its place. If enough muscle function is lost, “heart failure” can occur.

  • This Week’s LION: Resource (Foster) Parents0

    One of the difficulties in growing older is not just the decline in physical vibrancy and mental alertness but also adjusting to the new meanings of words. In my lifetime, “liking” someone meant more than checking a box on a screen, a “tweet” was a sound from a small bird, and a “meltdown” was reserved

  • The “Lure” of Bass Fishing0

    I suppose a better name for this piece would be “The lures of bass fishing” — plural instead of singular. Anybody who has ever gotten serious about their bass fishing fully understands what I mean when I say plural is more applicable; in fact, it’s a gross understatement. When I first got into bass fishing

  • Marching into Spring0

    “Spring, Spring, Spring! Sang the frog. Spring! Said the groundhog. Spring, Spring, Spring sang the Robin! It was Spring. The leaves burst out, the flowers burst out. And the robins burst out of their eggs. It was Spring.” Well, if you’re looking for some hard-hitting political editorial, this may not be the week. The above

  • Saint Patrick’s Day is for Everyone0

    Who was Saint Patrick? Originally born near the end of the fourth century in Britain, probably Wales, he was captured by Irish pirates in his teens and was forced to work as a shepherd.

  • Colonoscopy: The Golden Standard for Cancer Screening0

    More than 140,000 new cases of colon cancer are diagnosed each year, making it the third most common cancer and the second-leading cause of cancer death in the U.S. However, when caught early it is highly treatable.

  • County Hall Corner: Fossil Laws0

    A fossil is a plant or animal that was once alive, but after death, rather than decaying, it became set in stone and left an imprint of itself in stone. This is a good description of certain laws that made sense many, many moons ago when they originally came into being, but have long since

    You Saw What? Where?0

    Like a lot of people here in rural Pennsylvania, I’m always interested in seeing wildlife, not just when I’m hunting or fishing, but anytime I’m out and about. Sometimes, however, it’s not just about seeing wildlife but where you saw it. Let me explain. I was at my “branch office” (Dunkin in Muncy) the other
