  • Halloween Carnival to be Presented By City of Williamsport At Liberty Arena This Saturday0

    The Liberty Arena in downtown Williamsport will be alive (or dead) with ghouls, spooks and goblins of all ages as the City of Williamsport’s Recreation Department will be hosting a FREE Halloween Carnival for children 12 and under on Saturday, October 28 from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Liberty Arena located at 315 Hepburn

  • She’s a Keeper!0

    Last week, I broke the mold, so to speak — instead of writing about hunting, shooting, fishing or outdoor adventures, I shared something that was happening in my personal life. Today, I am happy to pen what Paul Harvey would say is “the rest of the story.” This past weekend, my family and some friends

  • The Ruffed Grouse0

    The grouse’s thunderous take-off caught me by surprise — even though I was actually hunting them, I was still not prepared when it exploded from behind a log only ten yards away. I missed — not unusual for me since I probably missed more than I ever succeeded in bringing down. Unfortunately, the grouse hunting

  • This Week’s LION – Smokey Bear0

    It is something of an irony that the deadliest and most destructive wildfires in California’s history occurred during National Fire Prevention Week, October 8-14. It is also ironic that it was 70 years ago, August 1947, that one of the most well known slogans in American history, “Remember, only YOU can prevent forest fires,” was

  • Pennsylvania Sports Hall of Fame To Hold Its Inductions Locally0

    Lycoming County has always been a hotbed of sports, producing many great and proficient athletes. As a way to celebrate that sports heritage, the West Branch Valley Chapter of the Pennsylvania Sports Hall of Fame was organized with its first class of inductees in 1974. The West Branch Chapter has been one of the more

  • Good News!0

    As a pastor, I am often with people during very difficult times. In those settings, we regularly receive updates about the crisis — news that comes from a doctor, or a police officer, or some other professional that has the information we are very eager to hear. I must tell you, in those desperate moments

  • Gazette and Bulletin: October 22, 1920 – James N. Kline Did Big Thing0

    The James N. Kline Boy Scout Camp is rapidly gaining a nationwide reputation and inquiries concerning it are being received almost daily from Scout councils from all across the United States. Already prominent citizens of other communities are preparing to emulate the example of Mr. Kline in providing similar camps for the boys of their

  • The Vinder Viper0

    Years ago, a man inherited a house from his great uncle who died in the war. The house sat on a hill outside of town in the next state and rumors were told that it was haunted. The man traveled to the town to inspect the house and found that it was a wonderful old

  • Fishing with Mike O’Brien… In Praise Of Barracuda, Great0

    Barracuda, great, Sphyraena barracuda, occur in all tropical seas, except the East Pacific, and are known by the common names of cuda, sea pike, and giant sea pike. They are quite common from Florida to Brazil. There are also Guinean, Mexican, and Pacific barracuda. Great barracuda are one of the largest of the barracudas and

  • Three WAMS Students Lead Walk-a-Thon Fundraising Effort – Daniel Confer, Benjamin Smith and Becca White0

    Three Williamsport Area Middle School students led the charge in securing individual sponsorships for their school’s walk-a-thon event on Oct. 5. The three collectively raised more than $870, representing more than half of the overall total of about $1,500 generated among the student body. The money raised will help support activities related to the building’s

  • Active Community Assistance – Five helpful ways to lend a hand0

    Social responsibility comes in all shapes and sizes, but ultimately it comes down to one common purpose: making the world a better place. From volunteering at local shelters and community centers to feeding those in need at your local food bank, there are countless ways to give back within your community. According to the Bureau

  • The Dapper Drive0

    A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away — I used to be really good. It’s true. So I can still stripe it better than most, but I haven’t made a five-foot putt in the past two months. It’s embarrassing. My lack of practice has to be the culprit, and I don’t get

  • Grit: October 17, 1965 – Local Airman to Direct Pick Up of Gemini Crew0

    After the splashdown, he’s the man the astronauts count on. When Gemini 6 parachutes into the Atlantic Ocean October 27, after two days of orbiting the earth, the eyes of the world, and particularly those of astronauts, Walter M. Schirra, Jr. and Thomas P. Stafford will be on the Williamsporter who is piloting the Navy

  • Under the October Sky0

    The third Saturday in October can mean just one thing in these parts — the Mummers’ Parade in Southside. Hard for me to believe this year marks the 72nd anniversary of the Autumn event. It seems like only yesterday I couldn’t wait for the parade to begin and to gather up all the candy possible.

  • Wait! He Can’t Commentate!0

    Imagine a small town radio station asks me to “assist” in a play-by-play Friday night football game. What would I bring to the table? Uh, I mean press booth. Before we go any further, there are opposing views on everything. Thus, for every fervent fan and parent who cherishes “Friday Night Lights,” there is a

  • Gather Ghosts and Giving Back0

    We are officially on the second and final week of our Annual Halloween Contest!

Better run skeleton — I’ll wait while you count… Done?

  • Autumn Additions – Fall upgrades for enhancing your home0

These simple upgrade ideas can help you improve aesthetic appeal, upgrade safety, keep your home free from pests and save you time, resources and money. De-bug Your Doors

  • The Public and the Government0

    An interesting exercise in government transparency is coming up soon. Based on the 1992 JFK Records Act, October 26th is the final date for the United States government to release about 3,000 never-before-seen documents also with 34,000 previously redacted files related to President Kennedy’s assassination in November of 1963. The investigation into the causes of

  • Sports?1

    Jean and I were among the several thousand country music fans that jammed the Bloomsburg Fair venue for the final night performance of the legendary county band ‘Alabama.’ On this crisp early autumn night the show provided a wonderful opportunity to clap, sing along, and enjoy one of country music’s most celebrated groups. During the

  • 72nd Annual South Williamsport Mummers’ Parade This Saturday0

    The leaves are starting to fall, the air has a chilly crisp to it, there may even be some frost on those fall pumpkins, warm cider is bubbling, ghouls and goblins are ever-present and it is October, so it must be time for the annual South Williamsport Mummers’ Parade, which will step off for the
