  • The Best Way to Color Gray0

    I’ve been dying my hair since I was 15, so I’m not quite sure when the silver strands of middle age started to appear, but they are here now. The good news is, although some gray hair is more difficult and more resistant to hair color, the technology around the products used to color hair

  • UPMC Pediatrician: Should You Be Concerned About Missed Milestones?0

    The first time your child laughs, walks, and talks, are all exciting moments to look forward to – in addition to being important developmental milestones.

  • Social Capital Important to Fighting Obesity0

  • Pitching Woes0

  • The Indestructible Man: Actor, Director (and Magician) Buster Keaton0

    If you heard someone described as “a man who could take almost any amount of pain,” you might assume it was an athlete, a first responder, a Navy SEAL — or maybe a Hollywood stuntman. But while the last phrase is technically accurate here, that “indestructible man” was in fact Buster Keaton — a silent-film

  • Earth Day and Climate Change0

    So, clearly, I’m not Jimmy. Jimmy had a technological mishap. He had his article all but finished when it disappeared into the ether. Even I couldn’t figure out what happened and recover his story. Due to rising frustration levels, we decided that it would be in everyone’s best interest to just take the L. Now

  • Williamsport Area Little League Opens Its Season on Saturday, April 270

  • Buster Keaton Movies in Canton — With a Live Orchestra!0

    When I taught English at Loyalsock High School, I sometimes took a single class-session and introduced my students to silent-film genius Buster Keaton. It was a bit of a stretch connecting this to my curriculum — though Keaton worked with Samuel Beckett and was also a master of the nonverbal cues covered in my speech

  • UPMC Physician: Make an Informed Decision0

    Deciding to become an organ donor is important, and it’s worth considering more often than when you renew your license at the DMV. Every nine minutes, someone in the United States joins the national organ transplant waiting list. Every day, 17 people on that list die waiting for an organ because there are not enough

  • To Cowboy or Not to Cowboy0

    Fashion is deeply cyclical, and every few seasons, the Western trend pops up. In the spring of 2024, a Western renaissance is upon us thanks to various designer labels, pop stars, and the trending zeitgeist. Of course, the key to any trend is incorporating it into your personal aesthetic rather than taking the whole thing

  • The Masters0

    March Madness is over. Kudos to Coach Hurley and UCONN. Impressive run, boys. Back-to-back. They were legit. Major props to the gals at South Carolina. Undefeated in 2024. The Women’s Tournament definitely stole the spotlight. Iowa’s Caitlin is a star. She created so much buzz. Check the archives. I wrote about her impact several weeks

  • Fore0

    While April Fool’s got this month started, it didn’t take long for its first two weeks to make a memorable positive mark on the sports calendar.

  • Trout Season in Full Swing0

    Another trout season is underway, and I still enjoy getting out on a stream, even though I’ve been trout fishing for over sixty years now. Over all those years, I’ve had a chance to fish with an assortment of equipment, lures, and baits. Like a lot of kids, I started with worms and a bobber

  • The Roving Sportsman… The Top Mistakes of Spring Gobbler Hunting0

    Unfortunately, every spring, many turkey hunters end the season without success, while a smaller percentage of hunters seem to always come home with a gobbler. It is not as if the unsuccessful hunters are not trying their darndest, but it seems to boil down to a few common mistakes that plague them every season. So,

  • County Hall Corner: United We Stand — Over a Blocked Sun0

    Our country today is not as much a United States as we are a various group of states that get united based on political convictions. Our fifty states are recognized as “red states” (Republican), “blue states” (Democratic), and those that are somewhat of a blend of the two or bounce from red to blue or

  • Hoping Opening Day Wasn’t Washed Out0

    The first day of trout season in Pennsylvania has been a long-time tradition. It’s a day shared by family and friends to celebrate something near and dear to their hearts. It is a day that many PA anglers dream about on cold winter nights. Chilly temperatures, rain, and even snow go hand in hand with

  • Walk Your Way to Better Health0

    Is it 37° and threatening to snow while I write this? Yes. Does that mean I’m not making plans for spring? Absolutely not. My plan for spring? More walks. As most of you know, I have two dogs. One very large rottweiler, Bulleit, and one little-legged basset hound, Booker. This spring, Booker and I will

  • Styling Sneakers0

    As April unfolds, we are leaving off sweater weather and headed into sneaker season. Sneakers have become more and more ubiquitous as athleisure, gorpcore (a fashion trend in which outerwear typically designed for outdoor recreation is worn as streetwear), and a more casual approach to dressing have emerged. Sportswear, in general, has become a modern

  • Lycoming County Department of Public Safety Conducting Access and Functional Needs Survey to Aid In Emergency Responses0

    When responding to an emergency, timely, accurate, and important information can be critical to first responders. That is the thinking behind an Access and Functional Needs Survey that the Lycoming County Department of Public Safety has developed. The information gathered in the Access and Functional Needs survey is being compiled in a registry, providing critical

  • Women’s Hoops Popularity Soars0

    A 1960’s advertising slogan for Virginia Slims cigarettes, “You’ve come a long way, baby,” was intended to target women consumers. Although the product is still on the market, that slogan may be a more apropos description of the NCAA’s women’s national basketball tournament, which concluded the sport’s most successful season this past Sunday. Due to

    “Phantom of the Opera.” “West Side Story.” “Annie.” “Avenue Q.” “The Lion King.” “Man of La Mancha.” “Fiddler on the Roof.” “Wicked.” “Jesus Christ Superstar.” These are just some of the 16 musicals on the program at the Repasz Band’s spring concert — slated for 7:30 p.m. on April 16 at Williamsport’s Community Arts Center.

  • Warriors That Golf0

    Lycoming College has a golf team. Yes. We still get a few strange looks. Whether it is walking across campus with our clubs. Or when we pull up to a McDonalds in our matching outfits. This is my second stint with the Warriors. I mentored the team from 2001 to 2016. I got out of

  • UPMC Expert: Does Your Lifestyle Affect Your Eyes?0

    We are all aware of the impact certain lifestyle choices — smoking, activity level, sleep — can have on our health and wellness, but do many of us consider how these decisions also affect our eye health? Our eyes are an essential organ, yet we often take them for granted. Your daily habits can affect

  • High Water Alternatives0

    As I sat down to write this piece, the streams were running high and muddy from the past few days of rain. I suspect that by the opening day of trout season, there will still be some high, discolored water. Of course, those who were on the streams on opening day will be able to
