  • The Roving Sportsman… Mentored Youth Hunting0

    For an experienced hunter, one of the most valuable ways we can spend our time is to mentor a new youth hunter. It can truly be a rewarding experience to take a young, eager novice and nurture them through the process of becoming a safe, ethical and knowledgeable hunter. It will be an activity that

  • Deep Thoughts.0

    These are the best of times and yet the worst of times. Unprecedented times. I continue to pray and send good vibes. But I am very concerned with what is going on. One of the good things about writing a weekly column is that I get to chime in. Yes. I usually share a story

  • Sweater Weather0

    Last week was still pretty hot, but the daily highs are starting to lower, and the evenings are turning chilly. So, I think it’s safe to say that sweater weather is right around the corner! Ideal sweater weather is temps between 55-65 depending on how hot you personally run. But sweater weather isn’t just about

  • County Hall Corner: I Fought the Law and the Law Won0

    A standard science-fiction device is an unstoppable foe. It could be a virus or disease, an alien invasion, or a monomaniac bent on world conquest, but the common strain is that its power grows and grows without anyone being able to stop it. We have had such a creature growing in the United States for

  • You Wanna Bet?0

    Following a recent team practice session, one of the coaches rapidly completed his post-practice responsibilities and, dashing to his car, told his fellow coaches, “See you guys tomorrow. I’ve got to get to my fantasy draft league meeting.” On another occasion earlier this summer, while engaged in a baseball conversation, one person in the group,

  • St. John’s Newberry United Methodist Church Celebrating 150 Years of Faith and Commitment0

    Not many churches celebrate 150 years of existence and service to God and their community; happily, St. John’s Newberry United Methodist Church is one of them. Now, as many congregations of all denominations are melting away and closing the doors of their churches, it seems appropriate to look back and celebrate a church that is

  • UPMC Physician: Understanding Traumatic Injuries0

    Traumatic accidents and injuries are unfortunately an everyday occurrence. Many people often associate trauma with major events such as car accidents, gunshot wounds, and burns, however, traumatic injuries can also be from something as simple as a fall in your home. While no one plans to be involved with such events, it is vital to

  • Trail Cameras, Food Plots, and Treestands0

    When I look at how hunters prepare for deer hunting today and how they prepared years ago when I was a youngster, I see two very different approaches. We now have longer deer seasons and more deer hunting opportunities, especially for bowhunters and muzzleloader enthusiasts. We also have new and better equipment that has added

    By the time you read this, the 20th anniversary of September 11th will be behind us. But before we put another year in the rearview (and especially since as I’m writing it’s September 10th), I wanted to say thank you to everyone who helped make the first 9/11 Heroes Challenge a success! Steve and I

    Disclaimer. These articles are submitted Friday afternoon. Life gets busy, and I will occasionally miss my extended deadline. I often leave my lovely editor hanging.

    I can’t completely put the 2021 Little League Baseball World Series in the rearview mirror without passing on one of those heartwarming stories that make Little League about much more than baseball games played by sub-teenagers. Ken Sawyer has repeatedly dubbed it “a series like no other,” and some have expressed the opinion that it

  • County Hall Corner: God Help Us0

    From the United States Congress to local municipalities, official meeting sessions are generally opened with a prayer. Often these are more directed toward the audience hearing them than Almighty God. Still, at the Lycoming County Commissioners Meeting on September 7th, Commissioner Chairman Scott Metzger opened the session with a prayer that spoke volumes. It deserves

  • Who’s in Charge?0

    Sadly, in today’s world, the word ‘bubble’ has taken on a totally different meaning than that used to describe a luxurious bath or a child’s gum. It’s now a protective word meant to shield one from interactions and danger from the outside world. During last month’s Little League Baseball World Series, the ‘bubble’ that surrounded

  • Our “Ugliest” Winged Creature0

    Maybe I should be a little more considerate and rephrase that story title and say our “not so attractive” winged creature. If you haven’t already guessed, I’m referring to the common and frequently sighted turkey vulture. The vulture’s featherless red or pinkish head and neck are anything but cute, and their eating habits only add

  • The Roving Sportsman… Chasing Bushy Tails0

    If you did a survey, particularly of older hunters, I bet most began their hunting days by tramping the woods searching for squirrels. They were certainly an upland game that I targeted in my early days of hunting. Today, there seems to be less interest in spending time hunting squirrels, yet there remain many good

    It’s hard to believe 20 years have slipped into the future since that second day of infamy in American history. I remember it like it was yesterday. A beautiful late summer September morning, all seemed right in the world as the day began. I was meeting my Father for coffee before beginning the workday. The

  • Never Forget0

    It is difficult to believe that 20 years have passed since September 11th. Some years it feels like yesterday, and some it feels like several lifetimes ago. Although recent events bring it back close to home. A total of 2,996 people were killed in the 9/11 attacks, including the 19 terrorist hijackers aboard the four

    “Come with me, and you’ll be, in a world of pure imagination…” With those wondrous words, the eccentric confectioner Willy Wonka welcomed five young children on a journey filled with sweets, surprises, and a few scares. The year was 1971, and the film “Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory” instantly became a classic. This past

  • This Week’s LION: The 9/11 Memorial Riders0

    On September 11, 2001, our nation was paralyzed over three separate terrorist hijackings of passenger planes. There was a small group of motorcycle owners, however, who just wanted to do something — so they did what they do — they rode. Circling around the city of Williamsport, they symbolically demonstrated freedom in action. From that

    Around this time of year, when it seems like the hot and sticky weather will never end, I find myself yearning for fall classics like sweaters, boots, and everything plaid.
