    Is Everything Really Nice if is has Pumpkin Spice?0

    Although autumn doesn’t officially start until September 22, the unofficial end of summer is always the day after Labor Day. As the autumn weather starts to descend upon the Susquehanna Valley, it’s time to put away those flip-flops, ditch the shorts for long pants and prepare yourself for the invasion that’s on the horizon. Pumpkin

  • Changes beyond the Series0

    The 2021 Little League Baseball World Series, best described by my radio broadcast colleague Ken Sawyer as “a Series like no other,” is now history. Baseball was played, a champion was crowned, and many memories were made by the 16 competing teams and the enthusiastic — but smaller — crowds that followed them. But, as

  • More Changes are Coming0

    I guess it’s a sign that I’m getting older, but it seems like changes are coming more frequently than they did in the past. As an outdoorsman involved in the business of hunting and fishing for most of my life, in my early years, it seemed like rules and regulations seldom changed much, if at

  • Slow and steady

    Slow and steady0

    “Slow and steady.” No, this is not a story about our over 50 outdoorsmen, although being slow and steady in most hunting situations probably pays off. Rather this piece is about some of our slowest and often stationary critters that we often overlook; I’m talking about turtles. One of the reasons I enjoy the outdoors

  • New Players Joining the Roster0

  • To Feed or Not to Feed?0

    To feed or not to feed? Lately, it appears that the practice of feeding birds in your backyard may be a problem — at least in recent weeks. Bird feeders and birdbaths have been popular items in backyards for many years, but there may be some problems emerging over the practice. As a photographer and

  • Logan and Junior Golf

    Logan and Junior Golf0

    Paul McGinn and I have been good friends for a very long time. We coached hoops together and called several games on WEBBWEEKLYLIVE. Paul is a good dude, and he is always around. We don’t see much of each other nowadays as we both focus more on our boys. I reached out to Paul this

  • Let’s Get “Down to Earth”0

    I suppose a better way of saying “let’s get down to earth” might be to say, “it’s time to start thinking terrestrial.” What I mean is that even though a lot of our mayfly hatches are slowing down and coming to an end, now is the time to start turning to terrestrials or those bugs

  • Making the Impossible Possible0

    After three years of ‘Making the Impossible Possible,’ the team at My Vision 9 Foundation is pleased to announce funding of $75,000 from the AllOne Foundation.

  • The Roving Sportsman… Walleyes on the Palouse0

    It all began as my friend, Walker, and I laid out plans for a spring bear hunt in the Clearwater Wilderness Area in the Idaho panhandle. We wanted to arrive in the state a few days early so we could wind down from the 35 plus hour drive from home. And we wondered what else

  • The Lovely American Legion Post 1 Cemetery Plot at Wildwood Cemetery0

    As many of us pay our respects this Memorial Day weekend, it is interesting to note one burial plot in particular, which honors some of our war dead. On the peaceful incline of the eastern part of Wildwood Cemetery is the lovely and picturesque plot of graves owned by the Garrett Cochran American Legion Post

  • County Hall Corner: The Butterfly Hurricane0

    Consider these three recent events; a ship trapped in the Suez Canal, a virus outbreak in a city in south-eastern China, and a small group of Reddit website users investing in a video game retailer. The first paralyzed world shipping, the second caused a global epidemic, and the third caused a massive stock market upheaval.

  • The Roving Sportsman: It’s Ramp Gathering Time0

    Among birdwatchers, the robin seems to top the list as the “harbinger of spring,” while for those folks who enjoy harvesting wild edible plants, it is the ramp that best signals that spring is upon us. So, what is a ramp and just what is all the hubbub about ramps, anyway? The scientific name is

    John 20:19-20, “On the evening of that first day of the week (Easter morning), when the disciples were together, with the doors locked for fear of the Jewish leaders, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you!” After he said this, he showed them his hands and side.” Evening? Have you

  • A Week Like No Other0

    This week, the week before Easter, is a week like no other. In the last week of Jesus’ life, He goes from being hailed as the conquering hero to being executed as a delusional and self-promoting king and insurrectionist. How could His fortunes have changed so drastically in just one week? Our answer begins in

  • Spring Trends 20210

    One of the things I love about spring is switching out my cold-weather gear for warmer-weather apparel and taking stock of the upcoming season’s trends. This spring, like last spring, will be a bit different, and yes, it may seem frivolous to think about fashion or shopping, but most would agree that a bit of

    Good St. Patrick brought the finest day of the whole of 1912 in his train when he displayed the day March 17 on the calendar yesterday, which was almost mild enough in the afternoon to call out snakes, in these parts at least.

  • Mardi Gras and Lent0

    I guess we can chalk up yet another thing that the global pandemic has ruined. #ThanksCOVID. Mardi Gras in New Orleans typically means dancing in the streets, standing shoulder to shoulder with strangers, and watching one parade after another roll by while slowly becoming a human bead tree. But Mardi Gras 2021 will be different.
