  • The Roving Sportsman… A Side Trip to the Netherlands0

    When Geoff Farmer invited me to join him and Sandy Greener in the United Kingdom for a couple of weeks of sporting clays shooting and traveling the countryside, he included a proposed sojourn to the Netherlands to shoot in a 4-day Grand Prix Competition. It all sounded great, and the trip to the Netherlands would

  • The Roving Sportsman… A Visit to Jolly Olde England0

    In the early 2000s, during the last several years of my career as a commercial pilot, I enjoyed flights to Europe, which included layovers in London and Manchester in the United Kingdom. Other flights out of Philadelphia resulted in layovers in Frankfurt, Munich, Paris, Madrid and Rome. They were all very interesting and provided the

  • Hunting Season Soon Underway0

    It’s practically the middle of summer, how can you be thinking about hunting already? Well, believe it or not, dove-hunting season opens on Sept. 1 and for me that usually marks the beginning of a new hunting season. The dove season is split into three separate seasons with Sept. 1 through Oct. 10 being the

  • A Reminder0

    Sometimes, I go through old issues, and I find subjects that I feel need revisiting. This was one of those weeks. A couple of years ago I talked about the need to be NICE. We live in a world filled with drugs, rape, murder, poverty, hunger, homelessness, mental and physical abuse, crippling debt, political discourse,

  • The Roving Sportsman… Recruitment and Retention0

    What is your favorite pastime — hunting, fishing, hiking, camping, shooting, just sitting quietly while observing nature at work, or a combination of all of these? If you grew up in Lycoming County or the surrounding area, then, no doubt you have spent countless hours enjoying all of these activities and look forward to many

  • The Roving Sportsman… Chronic Wasting Disease0

    It was not that long ago that we heard about Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) occurring somewhere out west, but 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 states,

  • LIVING Our Dreams

    LIVING Our Dreams0

    We all had dreams growing up as kids. I wanted to be a professional basketball player at an early age. I often thought about balling at a major D1. Then, ultimately, finding a home in the NBA. I can’t tell you the number of times I was alone in the driveway with those intentions in

  • County Hall Corner: School Vigilance, Part 30

    This article will conclude our three-part series on addressing the current crisis in school shootings and how Lycoming County is doing everything possible to prevent it from happening here. The first two installments featured the Juvenile Probation Department with Brian Pick and an example of school support with the East Lycoming Area High School and

  • County Hall Corner: School Vigilance, Part 20

    The recent rise in school shootings has had a fall out in many dimensions. Homeschooling has taken a sharp rise. Even churches are initiating or upgrading their security measures. In Lycoming County, there is a strong network that is manning the front lines against such troubles in our schools. Last week we featured Brian Pick,

  • County Hall Corner: School Vigilance, Part 10

    The scourge of school shootings in recent years sends a shudder through every parent with a child in school because it seems that these horrors can hit anytime and anywhere. The worst part of the tragedies is the discovery that the right ‘control measures’ were in place, but somehow, something went wrong. This is because

  • The Roving Sportsman: The Saga Continues…0

    After a trip with a hunting buddy to New York State on the first Sunday of the spring gobbler season, which ended in a clean miss for my friend, my enthusiasm had been renewed. Although there had been little reason to hunt here locally due to the lack of sightings or seeing fresh signs of

  • Crossroads Community Church, Williamsport Bureau of Police and Department of Homeland Security to Conduct Shooting Incident Safety Workshop0

    Mass casualty shooting incidents have been an all too tragic norm in recent years. This sad tendency even reached its ugly hand into houses of worship in November 2017 when 26 people were killed in a mass-shooting incident at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas. In order to prevent such a tragedy, or

  • Food for Thought0

    Well, the calendar reads May, and things are warming up. I’m not going to say it can’t snow, because this spring anything’s been possible. How nice is it though to sit out at a ballgame with a short sleeve shirt and shorts as that bright sunshine beats down on your shoulders? Sixty is the new

  • The Roving Sportsman: Opening Week Tactics0

    It appears that the daytime temperatures are finally reaching a more comfortable level and the snow (I hope!) is gone for the season. Now it’s a matter of double checking our gear, taking a shot or two just to verify the sights are still on, and maybe slipping out for a final morning or two

  • Double Your Pleasure, Double Your Fun!0

    “Double your pleasure, double your fun — with Double Mint, Double Mint, Double Mint Gum!” This popular jingle was used in years past to advertise a brand of gum that remains popular to this day.
