Stop the presses. The basketball hoops are coming back to Memorial Park. Props to Mayor Campana and his staff for making this happen. Wait. Did I just say that? OK, I have been very critical of Gabe and his “recreational” decisions in the past. I chimed in on the Williamsport Outlaws, a short-lived outdoor minor
By BRETT R. CROSSLEY For the Webb Weekly WILLIAMSPORT—Bam Brima had one of the best defense games of his career as Loyalsock knocked off Hughesville Saturday.

CROSSLEY For the Webb Weekly WILLIAMSPORT—Even the threat of the year’s first major snow storm couldn’t stop Loyalsock from treating its longtime coach Ron “CI” Insinger to a special moment on a Saturday afternoon. The Lancers welcomed in Hughesville for a game that was bumped up to an early start as the
There is so much to talk about in the world we live in today where do I start? I like beginning here at home and working my way out. Many of the issues we face here in the West Branch Valley are the same across our Great Nation. First stop, the local grocery store. I
Normally if I receive a press release or article that I feel warrants sharing in my space, I will re-write or change or add to it before I publish it. However, in this case I felt that not only did the information warrant my space, but there wasn’t much I could do to improve upon
It may be cold and wintry right now, but the warmth and satisfaction of doing for others through the concept of community service will be satisfied when various activities of that nature are performed and celebrated as part the of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Dream Week, January 19 to 24.

Clearly disdaining Horace Greeley’s 1865 advice of, “Go west young man,” Clemson University’s football team’s first appearance in a football game played in California in more than four decades proved to be a rousing success as the Tigers dismantled Alabama 44-16 in winning the NCAA National Championship last week. Much has been written and spoken
In Matthew 28:16-20, Jesus directs His church to make disciples. This passage is often referred to as The Great Commission. Most churches claim that making disciples — leading people to spiritual maturity — is a key element in their mission statement. But many leaders, including me, recognize that we are falling short. Instead of striving
There are many joys when it comes to parenthood, and I consider myself very fortunate to have a beautiful son. Jensen recently turned ten, and I think of him as my best friend. He is at a great age, and I enjoy the experiences we share. Jensen makes me so proud every single day in
Last year I gifted my mother and mother-in-law the book “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up” by Marie Kondo. Basically, it breaks down the Japanese method of decluttering and organizing. Marie Kondo now has a Netflix show where she reorganizes people’s homes. This got me thinking that this will be my year of being tidier,
Two more basketball acquaintances passed on this past month: John “Jack” Grimes and Richard “Rick” Felix. While mourning their loss, I once again found myself reflecting on how the simple game of basketball has graced me with the opportunity to get to know these two very special people. Rick through the coaching brotherhood, and Jack
People ready to “pop the question” may wonder about the right way to initiate an engagement proposal. Because a marriage proposal is such a memorable moment in a couples’ lives together, those doing the proposing often go to great lengths to ensure things go smoothly. While there is no proposal playbook, these guidelines can assist
Because fashion preferences were once ornate and dependent on precise fits, ready-to-wear clothing really did not become widely available until the early 20th century. Such attire is now available in just about any retail store. Because ready-to-wear clothing is so readily available, the average person may be unfamiliar with custom-made or tailored items. In fact,
Brief breaks during the work day can dramatically improve one’s ability to focus on a task. A 2011 study published in the journal Cognition found that brief mental breaks can improve focus on a prolonged task. The study’s authors tested participants’ ability to focus on a repetitive computerized task for 50 minutes under various conditions.
It is that time of year to make our traditional New Year’s Resolutions — you know -that list of things we know we should follow, but rarely seem to accomplish! So really, the first step is to promise ourselves that this year we will make that list and be much more conscientious about following it.
My wife and I spent the better part of a day at Cabela’s the week before Christmas, and trust me, I was never overtaken by boredom. Needless to say, I spent a good bit of my time wandering the seemingly endless aisles of fishing lures and fishing equipment. I probably don’t have to tell you
Standing on the deck of the Kinney Natatorium on Bucknell’s campus, a young girl, barely able to swim, was frozen in awe as she stood in front of the nearly see-through waters of the pool. Years later that little girl would become one of the premier swimmers on Lewisburg’s roster. At the same pool, standing
A wedding is a tough time to experience a bad hair day. Clothing styles, time of day and weather all can dictate a wedding hairstyle, but ultimately one of the most important factors in a wedding hairstyle is finding a stylist who understands you and can exercise your vision. A patient, understanding stylist who is
The Civil Aeronautics Board yesterday cleared the way for Williamsport’s dream for direct air service to New York City to come true. City Solicitor Charles F. Bidelspacher revealed that he was notified service will begin next month. An All-American official said that four flights a day will be instituted from Pittsburgh to Williamsport, and New
My thoughts and prayers go out to the family of Newman, California Police Corporal Ronil Singh. The young officer lost his life during a routine traffic stop when an illegal alien with a criminal record opened fire. The K-9 handling Officer leaves behind a young wife, a five-year-old son, and a large supportive family. The
