    This Week’s LION: Tim and Beth Schoener: A Home Away from Home1

    There is a large home located in the vicinity of Penn College. It’s in a rather lovely residential neighborhood in the city of Williamsport, but something odd was happening there. The neighbors wondered why there were dozens of cars parked around the place every Thursday night. What could possibly be going on there week after

    Three Memorial Day Weekend Travel Tips0

    Memorial Day weekend is one of the busiest travel weekends of the year.

    Stop Sand from Spoiling Summer Fun0

    Few things are as synonymous with summer recreation as a day at the beach enjoying the sun, sand and surf. Whiling away the hours at the coast is an ideal way to get fresh air and enjoy family or solitary time and also can be an entertaining way to exercise and learn about marine life.

    Enjoy More Time Outdoors With Easy Tricks0

    In centuries past, humans spent much of their time in nature, hunting, foraging and living life without the comforts of extensive shelters. Fast-forward several centuries, and the tables have turned dramatically. The Environmental Protection Agency says the average person spends 93 percent of his life indoors, with 87 percent of the time inside of a

  • The Roving Sportsman: The Saga Continues…0

    After a trip with a hunting buddy to New York State on the first Sunday of the spring gobbler season, which ended in a clean miss for my friend, my enthusiasm had been renewed. Although there had been little reason to hunt here locally due to the lack of sightings or seeing fresh signs of

  • The Great Sock Abyss0

    Some time ago my daughter cleaned her bedroom, and in so doing resurrected an embarrassment of items that she had ostensibly given up for dead. Things that she hadn’t seen in such a long period of time that she forgot about them almost entirely. There was a pair of iPhone earbuds that had been MIA

    Let me apologize for missing last week’s deadline. I am what they call an unreliable part-time scribe that was temporarily without an electronic device. I slipped on a rock, and my phone ended up in the middle of Lycoming Creek. We were both submerged in three feet of water for five minutes straight. I was

  • County Hall Corner: Law Library for All0

    Law libraries were established in the United States before there was even a United States. Even though the first colleges in Colonial America were founded primarily for religious purposes, they also quickly realized that preparing men to practice law was a necessity for the developing nation. To practice law means to understand and know it,

  • A Memorial Day Follow Up0

    Webb Weekly does not often follow up on stories we have previously run, but we believe because the original story exemplifies the spirit of recognition and appreciation of those in uniform who gave their lives to keep this country free, we thought it wholly appropriate to do a follow-up. In our April 25 issue, we

    It’s great to see the mountains that line the West Branch Valley aglow in that special spring-green foliage. At times, it didn’t seem like spring was ever going to get here — let alone summer. We truly live in one of the most beautiful places on God’s green earth, and it’s great to see everybody

    The Power of the Media…0

    In a time when the media is taking a beating — being accused of being ‘fake,’ and often slanting to the left or right for their own benefit, it’s very existence threatened, let’s take a minute and put it to good use. No other print news in the area has the coverage that Webb Weekly

  • County Hall Corner: Goodbye to a Wonderful Warden0

    Retirement is often a bittersweet event. In one sense, it is joyous for an individual who has labored for decades in worthwhile service to an organization to be rewarded, but it is also sad for the colleagues to know that this individual will no longer be around. That emotion was in full swing at the

  • Fishing a Tandem Rig0

    Over the past month or so, I’ve been writing pieces about improving your fish catching rate by becoming a more versatile fisherman; one of those improvements involved learning new techniques and presentations. I mentioned that fishing a tandem fly rig was something I had been reading about, but had not yet tried — that is

    Similar to those famous countdowns at Cape Canaveral, in numerous households across the region that ‘countdown’ is proceeding full speed until upcoming high school graduation days blast products of eighteen years of nurtured love into the ‘unknown’ stratosphere of ‘the real world.’ Those coming out parties will be launched with varying degrees of mixed emotions.

    He had the softest ears of any dog I’ve ever known. That said, I almost never passed up an opportunity to caress them. Nor could I deny how I loved snuggling with him on the couch, his box-like body curled up and wedged next to mine — safe and warm. No matter what the day

  • The Summer Job Disappearing Act0

    Another monumental shift in society — in the summer of 1978, 60% of teenagers were working or looking for work. By 2016, only 35% were doing that! Now, don’t be quick to judge (as I was) and say the kids these days are too lazy to hit the job trail. Many are spending more time
