Fellow Americans, during this difficult time we will continue to serve the citizens of the West Branch Valley and our local business community to the very best of our ability. There has never been a more important time to buy locally and support the area’s economy. We are all in this together. God-bless America.

Having grown up in Lycoming County and having spent most of the years of my life roaming its hills and streams, I have had the opportunity to witness many of the wonders that Mother Nature offers. From the blooming of trilliums and later Indian pipes in the springtime, to the birth of fawns and grouse
Summer eatin’ is such a special treat. I love fall and winter foods for the coziness of a hot bowl of soup or comfort of a casserole. But summer, oh summer. As much as I hate the humidity, I look forward to the amazing foods during these months. Like picking strawberries and making some homemade
Even if you wanted to, you couldn’t count all the stars in the sky. It’s a perfectly clear night to try, though. The campfire’s lit, and its crackly sound competes with tree frogs; conversation is soft, refreshments are cold, and you’re almost dry from a dip in the lake. This kind of evening is just
These days we are all (or at least should be) taking extra cleaning precautions, wiping down door handles and sanitizing frequently touched services. In the midst of your amped up cleaning, now is a good time to address your makeup brushes. I recently organized my cosmetics and took inventory of my makeup accessories, because what
One hundred five years ago, in 1915, the Campbell Soup Company began marketing their famous Alphabet Soup. For decades that followed kids ate their soup while at the same time spelling their name with the letter-shaped noodles contained within. Today those fun, friendly letters can only be found in Campbell’s Vegetarian Vegetable. About twenty years
A long time ago in a galaxy far far away. I was introduced to part-time scribing. Back then, I was asked to provide some copy on behalf of White Deer Golf Course, and our relationship began. English and grammar were two of my least favorite subjects, and it took quite a while to come around.
Wow! How great is it to see the baseball and softball diamonds full of young ball players? Just seeing people out and about enjoying all the wonderful things our area has to offer in summertime. The ability to go out for a bite to eat and a cold drink. To actually be able to attend
I just want to take a minute to say Happy Father’s Day… Happy Father’s Day to the Dads who are able to make every game. Happy Father’s Day to the Dads who miss games because they work long hours providing for their families. Happy Father’s Day to Dads who are far away protecting our freedoms.
EXISTING TREES: As a starting point, you should do a survey that identifies the trees currently on your property that provide feed for wildlife, such as oaks, beech, black cherry, walnut, butternut, hickory, chestnut and old apple trees. Also note the existence and location of evergreens that provide cover for wildlife. Use this data to
I was talking with a bunch of guys the other day and the topic of fishing came up-now that probably surprises you. We were talking about catching a variety of different fish when somebody asked me about which species and what equipment I specialized in when fishing. I had to think about that for a
I’ve always been a big fan of giving books as gifts because I personally enjoy reading, and I believe more people should be reading actual physical books. Usually, when browsing books for gift-giving, I lean towards novels or biographies. However, for Father’s Day this year, I may just mosey over to the “self-help” & “manuals/guides”
It was the summer of 1998, and my mom, brother, and I went down to South Carolina to go to Myrtle Beach with our whole Liddick family. It was always all my aunts, uncles, Gram, and cousins all in one big beach house for a week. It was kind of a tradition when we were
With no statistical facts to uphold my suspicions, I wouldn’t be at all surprised to learn the television ratings for ‘The Game Show Network’ have spiked dramatically during the past several months. With families sequestered in their homes and most competitive sports programming limited to reruns of games played years ago, those whimsical shows at
The euphoria of finally transitioning to the “Green” phase of the social/economic restrictions mandated by Governor Tom Wolf has been somewhat tempered by the reality that “Green” does not exactly mean “Go.” At the Monday, June 8th county press conference, government officials and community leaders strained to put the best light on the continual constraints
Approximately $4,000 in city scrip is still outstanding, according to City Treasurer Ben C. Bowman. The scrip is being held at the city treasurer’s office and will be retired on the redemption date, June 1934. If, however, taxes fail to come in rapidly enough to meet current city expenses, an amount of the scrip sufficient
The Summer season takes place in June, July and August which are typically the three hottest months of the year. In addition to high temperatures, these months can also be some of the most humid. Adding this hot humid weather to long periods of outdoor activity can spell disaster. Dehydration, hyperthermia, hyponatremia, heat exhaustion, and
In the not so very distant past, the local drive-in brought to mind the entertainment days of the AM Radio and 45 RPM records. It was 1933 when the first drive-in was created in Camden, New Jersey, initiated by an enterprising movie fan and sales manager named Richard Hollingshead, who noticed his mother found it
“What the hell is going on out there!” ~ Legendary Green Bay Packers Coach Vince Lombardi. That is exactly how I feel in regard to the current state of our Nation. Coach Lombardi was even a better person than a football coach. He was an icon of his time and leader for equality. A believer
It’s been a long spring. Like, interminably long. The Coronavirus has changed everyone’s lives, and the local restaurant industry is no exception. While most places were either open or closed, restaurants had to learn to grapple with a new way of operating. Places that never offered takeout or delivery had to figure out how to
The Jersey Shore Future Business Leaders Association chapter at Jersey Shore High School has had a memorable year, not just because of the COVID-19 pandemic but something more positive and outstanding. They have built a record of excellence for themselves not only locally but at the national and statewide levels as well. Dolly Oden, a
