  • Survive and Thrive During Menopause0

    Although menopause is a natural part of aging for women, many women aren’t happy when they start recognizing the signs.

  • Interesting to Amazing: Moms are Amazing!!0

    How many women, if they could look into the future, would still decide to get married and have a family? There are few guarantees in this “deal.” I am awed when I consider what my mother went through. Would she still have married Sam from Rhode Island after WWII if she could have foreseen the

    That Group2

    There has never been a time when so many instant communication options are available for public use. Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube are commonplace.

  • County Hall Corner: Sleep Well, Little Baby0

    Few things in life are more precious and beautiful than a baby. And thus, few things are more tragic and horrible than the death of such a one. The county coroner is one who must see this over and over again, and even experiencing it once is once too often. It was with this past

  • Licking the Batter Clean0

    Some of you, whether young or old, love eating raw cookie dough, but I never really developed a taste for it.

    In the late 1960s and into the mid-1970s, the Hurst Corporation (based in Pennsylvania) heavily promoted its line of speed parts, accessories and limited edition cars (usually Oldsmobiles) in a manner most males could appreciate: showgirls! Linda (Miss Hurst Shifter) Vaughn was the best known of the bunch. Blonde and buxom, and blessed with a

  • I Got What I Wanted. Now What?0

    It must have been over seven years ago that I whined and moaned (using a Webb column as my venting post) that cool, functional, consumer-friendly items weren’t appearing before our very eyes as promised. You know, the flying cars, the interspace shuttles, the automatic kitchens, the rotating windmills in our yards. I mean, even the

  • County Hall Corner: Planting a Tree0

    Arbor Day, April 27th, came and went, and probably only one out of a hundred people knew of it, and probably only one out of that number celebrated the event.

  • This Week’s LION: The “New” Y0

    Franklin D. Roosevelt once made the very profound statement that every organization is either living out the birth of a new vision or the death of an old one. The truth of that is evidenced by companies such as TWA that once had a virtual monopoly on trans-oceanic air travel and yet went bankrupt, or

    A Special Moment0

    Generally speaking, the sports world is not a homogeneous spheroid. As the recently concluded Winter Olympic Games clearly demonstrated, some sports that excite a particular region of the globe are looked upon by others with a bit of curiosity or indifference.

    I’ve poked fun at the masses for acting like mad men and women as they bust down doorways on Black Friday. However, I scour and scout on “Sensational Saturday” as I make the trek to York, Pennsylvania to a place where it not only offers cool stuff but can also take you back in time.

    Is there relevance in a book written 66 years ago in today’s society that is so wrapped up in itself?

The book’s main character, 16-year-old Holden Caulfield, lets it be known he is undergoing treatment in a
