  • Twas the Night Before Christmas By Clement Clarke Moore0

    Twas the Night Before Christmas By Clement Clarke Moore Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse. The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, In hopes that St Nicholas soon would be there. The children were nestled all snug in their beds,

  • Gazette and Bulletin: December 18, 1937 – Nickel Meals Offered at High School Cafeteria Pint of Soup for 3 Cents0

    A meal for a nickel can be secured by the students of the Williamsport High School at the cafeteria maintained in the school under the direction of Mrs. Beulah Manley. Balanced menus are prepared weekly, which incorporate the use of protein, carbohydrates and vitamin containing foods. The daily fare consists of one main plate, a minor

  • The Giving Tree Courtesy of St. Ann Catholic Church

    The Giving Tree Courtesy of St. Ann Catholic Church0

    While not a Christmas story, “The Giving Tree” by Shel Silverstein is a wonderful children’s book with a message that resonates with everyone. It is a touching reminder of the importance of family and giving at this time of year. The story is about a tree’s sacrifice for the love of a boy. At first,

  • Song of the Week “Carry On Wayward Son,” by Kansas0

    Ah, it’s that time of the year again when Uptown’s post-show videos serenade the world of Facebook and YouTube. This time, we shredded “Carry On Wayward Son,” by Kansas, in our most recent show, More Than a Feeling: 70s Arena Rock. Personally, I love watching our post-show videos. It’s like a reward for the hard

  • Keeping Off the Weight this Holiday Season0

    • Arts
    • December 19, 2018

    I recently heard on the radio that the average American can expect to gain 1-5 lbs. over the holidays. A pound or two doesn’t seem like much, but year after year that weight builds up, and one pound becomes five pounds, becomes ten pounds, etc. This Christmas season, I’m not only trying to avoid gaining

  • From ‘the Cheap Seats’0

    It was as if time had suddenly stopped as the high-arching three-point shot launched by a Northeast Bradford player almost seemed destined to hit the heating vents suspended high above the Montgomery Community & Athletic Center gym. When gravity intervened the seemingly desperate shot found nothing but white nylon cord tying the Panthers game against

  • The Roving Sportsman… Considerations When Giving a Firearm as a Gift0

    With only a few shopping days remaining before Christmas day, you may be thinking about purchasing a firearm as a gift for a friend or relative. Or, you may be considering gifting one of Grandpa’s old side by side shotguns or cherished lever action rifles to a member of the family. Either way, there are

  • Paddlers May be Required to Register Their Craft0

    The rest of the “Frozen Chosen” and I are actually considering hitting some hard water sometime next week so why am I writing about paddling watercraft around as we dip into the winter months? The reason is that there may be some changes coming in the near future regarding non-powered watercraft, and those changes will

  • Yes, Virginia, There is a Santa Claus0

    Yes, Virginia, There is a Santa Claus DEAR EDITOR: I am 8 years old. Some of my little friends say there is no Santa Claus. Papa says, ‘If you see it in THE SUN it’s so.’ Please tell me the truth; is there a Santa Claus? VIRGINIA O’HANLON. 115 WEST NINETY-FIFTH STREET. VIRGINIA, your little

  • County Hall Corner: A Good Looking Golf Course0

    Winston Churchill thought playing golf was dumb. He commented that it was a game designed to hit a very small ball into a very small hole with instruments ill-designed for the purpose. Many in Lycoming County would echo those sentiments. Why does the county need a municipal golf course anyway? Actually, Lycoming County is very

  • Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer

    Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer0

    Adults and children alike are familiar with the tale of “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.” As the lyrics of the song illustrate: Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer had a very shiny nose / And if you ever saw it, you would even say it glows. Popularized by the song written by Johnny Marks and sung by Gene

  • Simple Sides for Holiday Entertaining0

    Preparing side dishes can be time consuming. Save those precious minutes to enjoy the holidays by using refrigerated, never-frozen options like mashed potatoes, mashed sweet potatoes, baked apples and even macaroni and cheese that can be heated in the microwave and ready to serve in minutes. Like many hosts, you are likely searching for perfection

  • It’s Christmastime in Our City

    It’s Christmastime in Our City0

    What an unbelievable transition I’ve witnessed from the LL Stearns and Carol House days of the 70s to what downtown Williamsport has become today. Yes, there might have been some lean years in between, but Downtown has never looked better. I always enjoyed those Christmas shopping trips with my Mom and Grandparents back in the

  • Interesting to Amazing by Tom, son of Ann and Sam0

    I was sorry to hear that Gerry Ayers passed away so soon after writing his last column. It reminds me of Charles Schultz and his last “Peanuts” column. Mr. Schultz, among other things, was a sports fan. He particularly liked ice-skating and hockey, starting, later in life, an over-75 hockey league! All the more a

  • 30th Annual Mifflinburg Christkindl Market Takes Place December 13 to 150

    One of this area’s most notable and interesting Christmas-related events takes place for the 30th time in Mifflinburg when the Christkindl Market takes place from December 13 to 15. The largest winter festival in the Susquehanna River Valley, the three-day Mifflinburg Christkindl Market, will open Thursday, Dec. 13. The outdoor, authentic, German Christmas Market attracts

  • The Changing Face of Deer Hunting

    The Changing Face of Deer Hunting0

    Yes, I’m old enough now to have watched the many changes that have come to deer hunting in our state. At one time Pennsylvania boasted of over a million hunters for the opening of deer season, but today we are well below that number. It may also be true that there were more deer, at

  • Umpiring U0

    With the Christmas holiday fast approaching the talk around many family gatherings will include education plans for the teenagers approaching high school graduation and adulthood. When that question has been asked of South Williamsport’s Bryce Brewer, his response throws most people a curve. A few days after unwrapping Christmas gifts the 2018 South Williamsport graduate

  • Touchdown Jackson

    Touchdown Jackson0

    I need to apologize for the two-week sabbatical. I was at a loss for words, and couldn’t find a pencil. Tis the season boys and girls. No, I didn’t cash in on any Black Friday specials, but I am now well rested. I also have plenty of material for the next couple of months. Sorry

  • Song of the Week… “Bleeding Hearts” by Kimberly Adair0

    It’s funny how Williamsport was bare and deserted when I was a naivé child, and the arts had been hidden away in those old Victorian homes — afraid to come out and represent the talent that this small town holds within its heart. Today, the Port is well known for its music and a lady,

  • Director of Little League Museum Describes His Encounter With George H.W. Bush0

    Lance Van Auken, director of the World of Little League Peter J. McGovern Museum has his own fond memories of the late 41st President of the United States, George H.W. Bush, who died on November 30 at the age of 94. Van Auken was tasked by Steve Keener, President and CEO of Little League International Inc.,
