  • “Give Me Five – I’m Still Alive”: Grateful Dead Album Turns 500

    The Guinness record for most live albums from a single artist is held by the Grateful Dead. As of 2019, that figure stood at a whopping 167 — and many more have been released since then. In part, this ongoing flood is due to the ensemble’s virtually nonstop touring over its three-decade tenure. (Indeed, remnants

  • SERVPRO’s “Hydrate For Heroes” Helps Hydrate Area Firefighters While Fighting Fires0

    As this is being written, there is a serious, health-threatening heat wave going on. No group of people is threatened more during these occurrences than our firefighters when they are battling red-hot blazes. Hydration is critical for them. In an attempt to assist in the effort to make sure these dedicated people stay safe and

  • Take a Kid Fishing0

    It’s summer, and the kids are out of school, and a lot of them are no doubt looking for something to do; unfortunately, a lot of that time these days is spent working a keypad. When I think back to those grade school and junior high school days, we didn’t have gadgets with keypads, and

  • County Hall Corner: Uncle Sam Needs You!0

    At every Lycoming County Commissioners Meeting, Commissioner President Scott Metzger opens the meeting with a prayer. In the past few years, I have noted that, without fail, Metzger will always highlight in his prayers an anniversary of a military institution. At the Thursday, June 13th meeting, he highlighted the 249th birthday of the United States

  • O’Malley’s Mounties and Little League’s Future Leadership0

    As I’m sitting here in the early morning hours at my desk on the South Side, there’s only really one thing to lead off with this week. My longtime friend Tom O’Malley has the Mountie softballers on the doorstep of a PIAA State Championship. What an exciting time in these young ladies’ lives and for

  • Juneteenth0

    “The people of Texas are informed that in accordance with a Proclamation from the Executive of the United States, all slaves are free. This involves an absolute equality of rights and rights of property between former masters and slaves, and the connection heretofore existing between them becomes that between employer and hired laborer.” Gordon Granger

  • St John’s School of the Arts: New Location But Same Commitment To Students of the Arts0

    While the Saint John’s School of the Arts may have a new home at the First United Methodist Church in Williamsport, this move is a testament to their commitment to the arts. Their new location offers enhanced facilities and resources, allowing them to provide an even better arts education experience for their students. Since its

  • Three Hundred

    Three Hundred0

    It was brought to my attention. I now have three hundred articles with Webb Weekly. I am sure there are several more. But these three hundred submissions are archived. That makes me smile. Special thanks to my big brother Jim. He has been a great mentor and friend. I tend to disagree with his politics

  • Eminent Estes0

    Over the years, the entertainment business has seen its share of many successful pairs. Burns & Allen, Lewis & Martin, and Abbott & Costello come to mind. As the Williamsport Crosscutters recently opened the doors to another season of baseball at Bowman Field, Estes & Sinicropi began their 31st year bringing enjoyment to the area

  • Father’s Day Without Dad0

    Heather and I had just prepared our morning coffee and tea. We were sitting outside the camper and watching the sun come up over one of our favorite places — Delaware Seashore State Park. The campground is located on the Indian River, where it empties into the ocean. It’s a great place to fish along

  • How to Style Gingham0

    When you hear “gingham,” you may think of picnic blankets or kitchen curtains. When I hear it, I think of a classic print with surprising versatility. The two-toned checkered pattern brings to mind grassy lunches, yellow brick roads, and the fabric shops my Grammy used to take me to as a child. It’s the nostalgia

  • Billtown Blues Association Finalizes 2024 Festival Lineup With Audition Winners0

    Jersey Shore band, The Cadillac Cats, and solo artist Shippensburg resident, Nick Andrew Staver have been selected the winners of the BBA’s Annual Audition Concert.

  • The Roving Sportsman… Fawn Facts0

    This week marks the beginning of summer. Thursday, June 20, to be exact, is the official transition, and it seems like the mix of spring-like and fall-like weather that we have been having is finally being replaced by warmer days and clearer skies. Along with the change in weather comes the recent birthing of this

  • It’s Time for Some Bass Fishing0

    Summer is well underway, and so is the bass fishing. If it’s smallmouth bass you are after, you are probably better off fishing the river or large streams, and if largemouth bass is your main target, a lake or pond is a good choice. That’s not to say you can’t catch smallmouths in a lake

  • County Hall Corner: Election Year and Inflation Fear0

    Polls greatly impact politics, and polls are supposedly evidence of what voters think about and care about. Politicians must walk a tightrope of matching up their focuses and concerns with those that they want to vote for them. For example, according to the most recent YouGov poll, inflation was the top issue for voters among

  • Still Time to Join Sr. Loggers0

    Fans age 60 and over are invited to join the Sr. Loggers Club presented by UPMC. The cost is just $40/person. Membership includes: – A free ticket voucher for members to every Sunday Cutters home game in 2024 (7 games in all) – A hot dog meal voucher for every Sunday game – Exclusive Sr.

  • Father’s Day, a Ball Game, And a Great American Giveaway

    Father’s Day, a Ball Game, And a Great American Giveaway0

    Happy Father’s Day to all the dads, grandfathers, and those who fill the role of a fatherly figure. Thank you for your time, patience, and commitment to our future generations. Thank you for that special understanding when something isn’t going so well in a child’s life, no matter what their age, to give a little

  • Happy Father’s Day…0

    Much like my Mother’s Day list, my Father’s Day list changes and flow and gets a few edits along the way, but I think it’s a pretty good list. So much like Dads usually appreciate, let’s not get fussy and get on with it… First and foremost, Happy Father’s Day to Steve. You are an

  • Subscription Boxes for Men0

    With Father’s Day right around the corner, I was thinking about how best to change up standard gift-giving for dads. The cliched presents of ties and golf balls can almost be given ironically because it’s hard to show the father figures in your life just how much they mean with a single gift. This year,

  • Library to Host Summer Learning Kickoff Event With Special Surprises0

    The James V. Brown Library, 19 E. Fourth St., will kick off the 2024 Summer Learning Program with special activities from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, June 15.

  • UPMC Surgeon: How Aging Affects the Spine0

    Almost everyone experiences back pain at some point. According to the National Institutes of Health, back pain is one of the most common reasons Americans go to the doctor, second only to colds and the flu. Our bodies are incredibly designed and can withstand a lot of stress, but as we age, the normal wear

  • The Roving Sportsman… Timber Rattlesnake Season0

    Having grown up in Lycoming County and spent most of my life roaming its hills and streams, it has been a natural progression to be an avid lover of nature and to enjoy the abundant outdoor sporting opportunities that this area provides. Through the years, my respect for all of nature’s wonders has continued to

  • Teaching the Art of Fishing

    Teaching the Art of Fishing0

    Teaching people how to fish may seem like a very simple procedure to some; after all, the only thing you have to do is put a worm on a hook, throw it in the water, and watch for the bobber to go under. To be honest, that simple maneuver does indeed catch fish, but the

  • Meet Kate Flannery from The Office on June 120

    Fans will have the opportunity to meet actress Kate Flannery at Journey Bank Ballpark on Wednesday June 12 when the Cutters host the West Virginia Black Bears. Flannery played “Meredith” on the hit TV show “The Office,” which was fictionally set in Scranton, PA. As part of the appearance Flannery will do a live on-field

  • County Hall Corner: The Beginning of the End?0

    Decades from now, researchers will be trying to figure out how the United States went so far off the rails in the mid-2020s. Without any doubt, we are living in historic times. Never in two and a half centuries of our democracy has one party denigrated an opposing person from the opposite party as the

  • Wilson to Lead Little League’s Lineup0

    As May entered its final days, there was plenty to cheer about on the local sports scene. Softball teams from Jersey Shore, Loyalsock, Muncy, and Williamsport had earned themselves entry into the PIAA state tournament, while South Williamsport’s baseball and softball teams both remained alive, and the Williamsport Crosscutters were making final preparations for the

  • Golf is a Great Game0

    I was recently asked to tee it up in a few tournaments. I used to love golf, but now it’s totally different. Yes. I still coach at my alma mater. I continue to enjoy my interactions with the Lycoming College Warriors. I don’t play much personally. It’s cool. I don’t miss it. I’d rather do

  • Looking the Future in the Eyes0

    There are two wonderful ladies I hear from on a regular basis. I believe both give me way too much credit for my writing, creativity, and ability to reach people in a special way. Both pray for me, encourage me, and let me know I’m loved. Both tell me I have a gift that I

  • A Healthy Summer0

    I have absolutely fallen off the healthy wagon. Multiple times this year alone! But that’s OK. Because no matter how many times you fall off, you can always get back on. So back on we go! It been difficult for me to work out a good time to hit the gym. There’s not really enough

  • Warrior Run High School Home Of This Year’s Girls State Champion 3200 Relay Team0

    Natalie Hall, Raygan Lust, Sienna Dunkleberger, and Claire Dufrene. These names will forever be etched in the history of Warrior Run High School sports. They achieved a feat that no other female track team has ever accomplished at Warrior Run school — winning a state track and field title. Their winning time of 9:25:2, breaking

  • A Case for Baths0

    A long, hot soak in the tub may seem like the last thing you’d want to do on a sticky day, but baths have long been a part of well-established self-care routines. It may seem luxurious or overindulgent, but a good soak has more legitimate health benefits than you might realize. Baths aren’t just about

  • Derby0

    Hats off to my friends at the Lycoming Creek Anglers. I give them a lot of credit. These guys and gals make our fishing experiences much more splendid. This spring has been fantastic. Yes. We battled some rain and high waters, but I am still ecstatic. I snuck out for several casts the past few

    This Sunday, June 9, a historical marker authorized by the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission will be dedicated at Way’s Garden to honor the late, distinguished local artist Frances Tipton Hunter.
