  • County Hall Corner: The Governor Who Cried Wolf0

    Governor Wolf tested positive for COVID, and it illustrates two things very clearly; the shutdowns don’t work, and the shutdowns need to be made stricter. The simple truth is that yet again; we can look at a cup of water and see it half empty and half full at the same time. I would not

  • The Roving Sportsman… Goodbye to 2020!0

    As yet another year comes to a close; it is a good time to reflect on all of the various things that have affected our lives and the world around us — the good, the bad and the ugly. While I don’t like to focus on negative, it is important that we recognize that there

  • My Dears Got Deer0

    Last week I wrote about deer hunting success with a first-time hunter, but this week I want to explore what happened with some of the female hunters in my life. Yes, my dear wife tagged an antlerless deer last week, and I’m sure there are a lot more men these days who are seeing their

  • A Tribute to Lou Hunsinger Sr.0

    This story is both the hardest and easiest story that I have ever written. Last week, my father, Lou Hunsinger Sr., died after a long illness. Thankfully he did not suffer. It is difficult to adequately express what he meant to my family, me, and his community. My dad was an unabashed American patriot who

  • Wrapping It Up0

    It’s not just gift-gifting season; it’s also wrapping paper season! And with more time on my hands than in Christmases past, I’ve been putting a bit more thought and style into present presentation. Instead of buying holiday-themed gift bags in bulk, I’ve decided to put my seasonal craftiness (which is limited) to the test by

  • Fishing with an Old Friend on Penns0

    We are extremely blessed to live in North Central Pennsylvania. It provides us with a number of terrific fishing opportunities. My lovely bride would say that I am somewhat possessed. BUT IT IS FREEZING. Believe it or not, this is my favorite time of year to fish. Although the days are short and there’s a

  • Gift Giving Smiles from Local Aisles

    Gift Giving Smiles from Local Aisles0

    It’s The Most Wonderful Time of the Year! As I’m in agreement with Andy Williams and his Christmas carol classic. Therefore, I’ll hold off on talking about anything that is politics, pandemic, or Governor Wolf’s complete poppycock that’s playing out each and every day. Hopefully, I get a new Louisville Slugger pen for Christmas to

  • Maybe Someday…0

    Maybe someday I will be ready for Christmas like a normal person. But I gotta tell you. It ain’t gonna be this year. I wonder if we could spare one of the elves from the Blaise Alexander Family Dealerships Coloring Contest to go do my shopping, wrapping, and baking for me? Let’s face it; Tinsel

  • County Hall Corner: Push Pause on the Panic Button0

    I recently had a conversation with several people about the uptick of COVID cases in Lycoming County; one person stated that they had heard the Lycoming County Courthouse was closing down completely. Another added with absolute certainty that the UPMC Hospital was at capacity in their Intensive Care Units. It is exactly for reasons such

  • UPMC Expert: Tis the Season to Talk About Family History0

    When you see your doctor for an annual checkup, they’ll want to know details not only about you but your family as well — including if your family has a history of cancer. This information can help your doctor paint a clearer picture of health risks due to your family’s health history. The problem is

  • Sometimes it All Comes Together

    Sometimes it All Comes Together0

    Now that the regular firearms deer season has ended, the stories of success and of failure are a frequent part of deer hunting enthusiasts’ conversations. It usually doesn’t take long for the “devices” to come out, and photos of successful hunts are passed around for everyone to see. Many of those photos include first-time hunters.

  • NUU Valor 3rd in Nation

    These girls took a major blow when the spring season was cancelled. They were registered for the EPYSA (Eastern Pa Youth Soccer Association) outdoor state cup and regular league play in EDP (Elite Development Program) based in Philly and NJ.  When everything shut down they moved into virtual and independent skills and workouts.  They developed

The ideas will include items that I have used and found to be highly useful and handy for any

  • Remembering Feared Baseball Slugger Dick Allen 0

    This year continues to be a bad year for baseball players I admired in my youth. The latest sadness comes with the news last week of the death of feared baseball slugger Dick Allen, who had an outstanding 11-year major league career and who once played here in Williamsport for the Grays in 1962. His



    My phone dinged at 4:05 p.m. It was a short and sweet text message from my lovely bride. She simply asked if I had heard the news. I had no idea what she was talking about so I pleaded the fifth. Seconds later I received a call from one of my favorite players. He wanted

  • Eye Cream vs. Eye Serum0

    When it comes to your everyday skincare routine, you probably have your go-to products down pat. However, as we roll into the colder, dryer, and darker days of winter, it may be a good time to check in on the easily overlooked skin of the under eye. For those of us lacking in a regime

  • A Mountaineer in the White House0

    While enjoying moments of offensive glory, including scoring the winning points in a playoff game at Canton, South Williamsport’s Brandon Gantz’s three-sport athletic career was highlighted by his defensive performances as a linebacker and infielder for Mountaineer teams. These days, Gantz’s defensive attributes are employed at a much higher level as a member of the

    Well, well, well0

    Well, well, well — if it isn’t Christmas sneaking up on me once again. Every year I swear I am going to start early and get everything done and just enjoy the season. Consider this year yet another fail. I’ve bought like one Christmas present, haven’t gotten a tree yet, and haven’t dug out the

  • Jersey Shore Football State Runner-Ups0

    By Dave Bellomo Despite all of the obstacles the Jersey Shore Bulldogs have faced this year, they still managed to make it to the PIAA 4A playoff game, ultimately losing to Thomas Jefferson, 21-14.

    In January of this year, my hopes for Lycoming County in 2020 was that it could be the Year of the Volunteer. I wanted to highlight volunteer fire companies and non-profit organizations’ efforts and how they needed new blood to stay alive. I hoped that with the experience of County Commissioners Tony Mussare and Rick

    There’s No Guarantee0

    Oh yes, it’s that time of year again; a fresh coating of white covers the ground, and the sound of Christmas carols can be heard in many different locations as we move about.

  • Non-Aging Style Tricks for Winter0

    As a 40-year-old woman, I’d be lying if I said that dressing to look a bit more youthful isn’t something I think about on occasion. Particularly in winter when bulky layers and dark colors tend to be aging. Luckily, I’ve had 40 years to develop some anti-aging skills in the clothing department. With winter upon
