  • UPMC Expert: Avoiding Common Winter-Related Injuries0

    With shorter days and unpredictable weather, the winter months can be particularly hard on our bodies. Ice and snow, harsh temperatures, and physical strain, particularly heavy lifting, are all part of the northeastern winter experience. Though many people may prefer to stay inside and wait for the outdoor activities until spring, getting some fresh winter

  • Hurdle, Kurkjian, and Rhashan / Wow Hot Stove League Audience0

    For a few short hours last week, it seemed like summer as the “summer game,” baseball, was celebrated at the Williamsport Crosscutters Hot Stove League banquet held at the Genetti Hotel. The banquet was highlighted by appearances by former Pittsburgh Pirate manager and former Williamsport Bills manager Clint Hurdle, ESPN’s Hall of Fame announcer and

  • The Roving Sportsman… Winter Chores0

    We have had amazingly pleasant weather these past few weeks, and according to the latest forecasts, it appears that it will continue for at least a few more weeks.

  • County Hall Corner: Help Wanted and Help is On the Way0

    For most of the 1990s and into the first decade of the new millennium, I lived in Eastern Europe and wore a number of hats, one of which was working as a human resource management specialist.

  • The Roving Sportsman… Chronic Wasting Disease – Past and Present0

    It was not that long ago that we heard about Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) occurring somewhere out west, but we never considered that it would ever become a concern within our own borders here in Pennsylvania. Initially, reports were of limited outcroppings of the disease in deer and elk in a few of the western

  • Remembering Beatrice “Bea” Gamble

    Remembering Beatrice “Bea” Gamble0

    Shakespeare wrote in Julius Caesar, “The evil that men do lives after them; the good they do is oft interred with their bones.” Well, the love, the good she brought to others, and her legacy of service to others did not die with Beatrice “Bea” Gamble, who died on October 1. Her decency, her godliness,

  • Christmas in a Store Near You0

  • Protect Landscapes From Wildlife and More0

    • September 21, 2022

    Over the Winter Landscapes are vulnerable to the elements during the cold weather months. Everything from de-icing products to hungry animals to the weight of snow can affect trees, shrubs and other plants. Just because certain greenery will go dormant during the winter doesn’t mean landscape maintenance ends when the mercury dips. Homeowners can take

  • A Dead-End Dead Sea0

    The Dead Sea is located on the boundary between Israel and Jordan. Its northern shore is about 16 miles east of Jerusalem and 104 miles south of the Sea of Galilee. The Jordan river flows from the Sea of Galilee into the Dead Sea. The Bible most often mentions the Dead Sea as the eastern

  • Football’$ Back0

    That old saying about the month of March coming in like a lion has nothing on September, especially if you are a football fan. The calendar’s ninth month entered on the heels of the Little League World Series and produced instant excitement and a few anxious moments for local fans of Penn State and the

  • Purpose on the Mediterranean0

    The Mediterranean Sea plays host to some incredible stories in the Bible. Two of my favorites are about harrowing shipwrecks. One involves Jonah (Jonah 1), and the other is the Apostle Paul (Acts 27). The prophet Jonah was called by God to travel to Nineveh (in present-day Iraq) and inform them of God’s plan to

    This Week’s LION: Sarah Tielmann – Bold & Born to Serve0

    When most people are asked what word comes to their mind when they think of Bogota, Columbia, they would most likely name things like assassinations, kidnapping, extortion, and drug cartels. However, there is a young lady who graduated from our local Penn Tech College, and the word that comes to her mind when she thinks

  • The Roving Sportsman… Yardbirds0

    I believe that if you grew up in Lycoming County or have moved and now reside here, you are indeed lucky. I had the good fortune to have lived in the area from birth through my college years and have, for the past 22 years, resettled in the rolling hills of North Central Pennsylvania. For

  • More Than a Cornfield

    More Than a Cornfield0

    “Build it, and they will come” is one of the many often-quoted lines from the 1989 movie Field of Dreams. In actuality, the line in the movie was “build it, and he will come,” referencing Shoeless Joe Jackson of the 1919 Chicago White Sox fictional appearance in that Dyersville, Iowa cornfield. Regardless, whether it is

  • County Hall Corner: God is Dead0

    Throughout Lycoming County, there are a number of local municipalities and county government entities that hold regular public meetings.

    A Smile, Handshake and Conversation Can Go a Long Way0

    One of the things I enjoy most about doing the Webb Weekly is getting to talk to so many people. Believe me; my job never gets boring because I get this opportunity with folks about so many different topics. This includes the obvious, like working with those at businesses, discussing columns within the paper, talking

  • The Roving Sportsman… Father’s Day Weekend – Day Two0

    My two sons and I had declared the first day of our Father’s Day Weekend fishing extravaganza a huge success! Yes, we did not land nor even hook a fish throughout the entire day, and it would take a dedicated fisherman to understand how someone could call a day without catching a fish a “success.”

  • District IV Stands Tall0

    Earlier this month, as the area school’s doors closed for the summer, hundreds of senior graduates stoically marched into their ceremonies to the familiar strains of Pomp and Circumstance. Then they sat, listened to speeches, heard their name called, received their long-awaited diploma, and happily tossed their mortar-board tasseled caps into the air and departed, officially ending

  • A Quartet for Brett: In Memory of a Local Movie Maven0

    Cinema lost a good friend last month. Brett S. Harrison, who lived in Philadelphia during recent years but grew up in Williamsport, passed away at age 62 in May. Older readers may recall the local Harrison Brothers Meat Packing business, co-owned by Brett’s beloved father, Donald — or perhaps Brett’s years of film criticism for

  • Peregrine Falcons

    Peregrine Falcons0

    Like most folks out here in rural Pennsylvania, I enjoy seeing a wide variety of birds, and like many of us, I really get a kick out of spotting some of the “big guys” like hawks, ospreys, and especially eagles. Some hawks, like red-tailed hawks, are often seen perched in trees along major highways, where

  • Tough Decision0

    I mentioned to some that I was on the fence about returning. And after a little break. I made the decision. I recently stepped down at St. John Neumann. Look. I had a great run. But it is now time to focus on far more important things. Many folks will question, and I totally get

  • That Big Slimy Salamander0

    I’ve been reading a book entitled Sentinels of the Susquehanna, by a friend and local writer, John Zaktansky. John is the executive director of the Middle Susquehanna Riverkeeper Association, an organization devoted to protecting 11,000 square miles of land that drains into the North and West Branches of the Susquehanna. The first couple of chapters

    My Guards are Outstanding0

    The St John Neumann Golden Knights had an amazing year on the hardwood. My phone continues to ring, and we are still trending. Everywhere we go. Someone will always extend a hand and want to talk basketball — even a month after the season. It is beautiful. Last week, Senator Gene Yaw stopped by to

  • Let Go Winter, Just Let Go0

    Winter just doesn’t want to let go. I can’t believe we woke up to a couple of inches in the middle of April. The morning of the snow, my dad brought our Harley up out of his nice toasty basement for riding season. That’s where we all keep our summer toys around here over the

  • County Hall Corner: My Meeting with Klitschko0

    From the late 1990s to 2018, I was an international business consultant and leadership trainer in the Nordics, Eastern Europe, Ukraine, Russia, Israel, and India.

  • Saved by Grace

    Saved by Grace0

    I love the commercial this spring where the song “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year” plays in the background. It feels like Christmas time again for that thirty-second commercial, even though it’s an allergy pill advertisement. As I literally sit here sneezing and having a runny nose, allergy season is the worst, but

  • Easter Outfits0

    Easter is one of my favorite holidays for getting dressed up. Even with questionable weather on the horizon, it feels that spring is about to arrive at any second, and with it, a sense of renewal and promise. Whether Easter is early or late, it usually stands at the start of the warm-weather party season.

  • Easter Bread is a Tradition in Many Homes

    Easter Bread is a Tradition in Many Homes0

    Families share many Easter traditions. Easter in a home with people who trace their ancestry to Italy will likely feature “Pane di Pasqua,” which translates to “Easter Bread.” Easter Bread is a ring of sweet bread that can be adorned with candy sprinkles. Some people nestle colorful hardboiled eggs within the twisted dough as well.
