It’s never a fun subject to discuss, but that may make it even more important to discuss. One in three high school students will experience some form of dating violence in their relationships. One in ten high school students has been purposefully hit, slapped or physically hurt by a boyfriend or girlfriend. According to breakthecycle.org
This is the first time I ever ran through a rock album with the lyric sheet in one hand and a Bible in the other. On “The Zealot Gene,” brand-new record from British prog-rockers Jethro Tull, front-man Ian Anderson continues his career-long examination of the Judeo-Christian tradition. Fortunately, this legendary band also continues the unique
It is very difficult to keep up with all the controversies that are flying around concerning the government these days — especially at the federal level. None seems to be more challenging than the immigration issue. This is not referring to illegal (or the politically correct word, ‘undocumented’) immigrants, but those who are actually filing
Well folks, great news, we have reached the middle of February. We all get to enjoy more than 45 minutes of daylight than just a short time ago at the beginning of January. Punxsutawney Phil has put in his one day’s work and returned to his posh pad for another year. I would expect nothing
It’s that time of the year once again! Continuing the tradition started by Mike Rafferty, it’s time for our yearly Super Bowl Predictions. So. Are you ready for some football? This year’s big game brings us the Cincinnati Bengals taking on the LA Rams from Sofi Stadium in Los Angeles, California. This is the second
The word creativity can be defined as the act of forming something novel that has value. It may be a physical object such as a piece of art or something intangible like an idea.

A gentle giant who served his community and his God well died on January 24 at the age of 77. That man was Curley Jett, who had the historic distinction of being the first African American Police Chief of the City of Williamsport. Curley did not live his life necessarily to be a trailblazer, but
You had three minutes to get to class. A hundred-eighty seconds to rush from room to room, always on the opposite sides of campus – do-able, as long as you didn’t have to fetch something from a locker or another spot. Do-able, if you could run fast, leap over crouching freshmen, and dodge slow-moving teachers.
Can you think of a tool that you use more often than your own hands? It’s inarguable that they are extremely valuable, but we often take them for granted. Due to their frequent and wide variety of uses, hand injuries are fairly common. Our hands are extremely complex body parts that make up more than
Valentine’s Day is coming up, and while some of us hard-hearted folks consider it a fluffy “Hallmark” holiday, the more romantically minded may be planning a lovely celebration of love. Usually, it’s on the gentlemen to treat the ladies on Valentine’s Day, but that doesn’t mean women can’t step to the plate with a thoughtful
Judging from the numbers of people I see on the ice these days, it appears that ice-fishing is a growing winter activity. Not only is ice-fishing an enjoyable way to spend a day, but it is also, as the title of this story suggests, an opportunity to put some delicious food on the table. Now
The National Retail Federation indicates Valentine’s Day is the fifth largest spending event in the United States after the winter holidays and Mother’s Day. Each February, people clamber to get gifts for their sweethearts and create romantic memories through fine dining and decadent desserts. According to Finder, a tool used to navigate complex decision-making processes,
Recently revealed statistics verified that 2021 was another banner year when it came to firearms sales, and 2022 is headed for another year of robust sales. Personal protection handguns have been and will continue to be a majority of that business. In fact, there were over 5 million firearms purchased by new gun owners throughout
I’ve been thinking a lot about love this week. Not because of Valentine’s — that part is just a sweet coincidence. As I lay on the couch laid up this week from surgery, I can’t stop thinking about all the love and support I have had. From the evening before my surgery, the outpouring of
If you happened to pass by the Curtin Middle School last Saturday, you might have heard a familiar sound from the past emanating from that old familiar educational landmark. If you thought you were hearing things or might want to experience it for yourself, stop by again this Saturday. At a time when some are
Tis the season folks. It is certainly a busy time of year. The St. John Neumann Golden Knights are playing lots of games. COVID concerns and snow days makes it rather difficult. Our schedule seems to change on a daily basis. We aren’t the only ones in the gym three or four nights a week.
One of the political words that has become a weapon and joke, depending on your political persuasion, is the word ‘woke.’ It came into vogue in recent years to describe a person who is consciously awake to concerns in relation to social and racial justice. The Urban Dictionary, mocking, notes that being “woke” is opinions
This past week I had a case of cabin fever, so I began assembling supplies to build an indoor greenhouse. I invested in new LED grow lights and a new enclosure to help regulate the temperature and humidity. Last year, I used fluorescent lighting and noticed large fluctuations in temperature. After reading about the different
Much is being said these says, and more is inferred about “Williamsport waking up” and “getting busy,” “pulling together,” with the use of like figures of speech that imply a scarecrow condition of things which neither facts nor fancy justify. It is such preachments as these in the half sepulchral tones in which they are
It’s said when it comes to finding love “Every pot has a lid.” If that’s true, I guess that’s why I’m a colander. It’s bad enough being perpetually single 364 days of the year, but being single on Valentine’s Day is like pouring salt in a raw wound and rubbing it with sandpaper while listening
