  • A Half-Dozen Roses: Under-the-Radar Films for Valentine’s Day0

    Since it’ll be tough to get a dinner reservation tonight, how about curling up beside the fire with a nice romantic movie? Rather than such standards as “Casablanca” or “When Harry Met Sally,” here are half a dozen lesser-known cinematic roses: Beautiful Girls (1996) – Ironically titled film is mostly about guys — and worse

  • The 2023 Fishing Season Underway0

    I know most of the fishing crowd doesn’t think of a new fishing season being underway until trout season rolls around in April, but I’ve always considered the new season underway when I hit the ice for the first time. In recent years that first trip rarely took place before the start of the new

  • County Hall Corner: Don’t Wait to Dial 9880

    Even children know to dial 911 in an emergency. But not every crisis is a 911 emergency — some require a helper rather than a healer. This is when it is best to dial 988. In July 2020, the FCC adopted rules to establish 988 as the nationwide, easy-to-remember 3-digit dialing code for people in

  • Grit: January 5, 1958 – Veteran Barber Operated Different Drive-In ShopGrit0

    “Downtown Barber Shop, Park Inside.” That’s the legend inside an unusual barber shop at 241 William Street in downtown Williamsport — unusual for two reasons: Customers can actually park their cars inside. (2) the barber is a man who retired two years ago after 50 years in the trade. John Harvey Richey, 70, of 213

  • Happy New Year!0

    This is easily my favorite issue of the year, it’s hard not to get a little choked up thinking about all the fantastic organizations that my co-workers and I get to support this week, from furbabies to actual babies to families and vets and the great outdoors! This week’s issue is just one of the

  • Happy View Year: Cinematic Champagne for Dec. 310

    It was almost exactly one year ago — New Year’s Eve, 2021 — that I went to see the very first film I reviewed for Webb Weekly. In honor of that auspicious anniversary — and to contrast the Christmas-film lists that circulate endlessly at this season — here are some New Year’s Eve selections: Let

  • LION (Leaders in Our Neighborhood): Wreaths Across America

    LION (Leaders in Our Neighborhood): Wreaths Across America0

    Those under 40 years of age probably have no memory of a time in the United States when veterans were largely ignored. The Vietnam War of the 1960s and early 1970s was terribly polarizing, and those who were veterans of that conflict found it best to avoid highlighting their involvement. This anti-military attitude in American

  • Ho-Ho-Ho Holiday Happenings!0

    Sleigh bells are starting to ring, so far, we’ve been pretty lucky in that our lanes aren’t glistening… There is a lot going on this time of year to help celebrate the holidays. I thought it might be fun (and convenient) to do a bit of a ‘Holiday Round-Up’ to let you know about all

  • A Not-So-Silent Night: 15 Festive Christmas CDs0

    As was I hauling out my holiday albums one long-ago December, my younger son observed that I seem to own more Christmas CDs than most people have in their entire disc collection. I’m not too proud to admit that the pile has grown considerably since then. Here are some favorites: “A Charlie Brown Christmas,” Vince

    A Date of Infamy, Honor, and Remembrance0

    With our cover date reading December 7th, I would be remiss as an American if I didn’t begin my column with what occurred 81 years ago. Over the past several years, it has become most evident that our Nation must not only remember our history but learn from it. As I watch the reports regarding

  • Marine Corps League Detachment #388 More Than Toys for Tots0

    The Toys for Tots program is a Christmastime staple associated with the United States Marine Corps Reserve and its allied group, the Marine Corps League. Many people need to be made aware of the Marine Corps League and its commitment to community service. The local Detachment of the Marine Corps League #388, is involved in

  • Movie Memory Magic: A Christmas Story Sequel0

    Ever notice how nostalgia seems to play a vital role in the holiday season? You carefully resurrect old family traditions, dig out grandma’s grease-spattered recipes, bedeck your tree with 50-year-old ornaments, and your teenage kids — normally devoted to trendy new music — happily subject themselves to Sinatra, Burl Ives, Andy Williams and Vince Guaraldi;

  • Book Penned by Former Montoursville Man Now a Major Motion Picture0

    When Adam Makos, formerly of Montoursville, wrote a book about two heroic naval aviators during the Korean War, he could scarcely have imagined that the book would become a major motion picture seven years after the book was written. The film, “Devotion,” based on Makos’ book of the same title, was released in theaters nationwide
