  • Gridiron Guesses0

    The first Super Bowl I remember watching was Super Bowl XXIV in 1990. It was the 49ers versus the Denver Broncos at the Superdome in New Orleans. Admittedly, I’ve never been a huge football fan, but I remember watching this game because, for whatever reason, my mom has always been a Broncos’ fan and was

  • Rivalry Restored0

    It has been more than a week, and I am still buzzing. Actually, the entire hoops community is. What transpired in the Catholic Community Center last Sunday might never be duplicated. It was an amazing atmosphere, both teams played well, and I had the best seat to witness. The Loyalsock Lancers prevailed as they defeated

    Being More Thoughtful of Others0

    It was the day before Christmas Eve, and we decided to take our kids out to see the lights, walk Loyalsock Park, and stop and grab a bite for dinner last minute. The kids ask to go to Pizza Hut. When we went there it was super busy. The lady sat us and said she

  • This Week’s LION: LION of the Year — The Young & Amazing0

    One of my favorite exercises at the end of the year is to review all my columns throughout the year. I began writing LION (Leaders In Our Neighborhood) features in April of 2014, and I am always surprised how each year seems to have a certain theme. In 2018, it was good people passing away.

    It is definitely the Most Wonderful Time of the Year. As in the Christmas classic sung by Andy Williams. I love when that song comes on the radio; it can’t help but to put some Christmas spirit in your step and a smile on your face. Give it a listen before you go shopping, to
