  • Mission Expo 2020 To Be Held October 21-240

This is the essence of the initiative known as “Mission Expo 2020.”

  • Fall Turkey Season Just Around the Corner0

  • COVID Hoops0

    Every sport has been impacted. But the onset of COVID-19 has absolutely crushed college basketball. It all started with the cancelation of MARCH MADNESS. All of my brackets busted. Unthinkable. There was talk about playing the games later. Unfortunately, that never happened. As we approach the 2020-21 hoops season, there is still a major concern.

  • Can Hunters Set a New Bear Harvest Record?0

    Pennsylvania has a chance to break last year’s record bear harvest of 4,653 in the coming bear seasons. At first glance, it seems an unlikely possibility given so many bears were taken last fall. But even with last fall’s phenomenal harvest, there’s still about 20,000 black bears roaming Penn’s Woods. And those new and extended

  • Going for Two0

    You’re familiar with the term and its implications.

  • The Roving Sportsman… Understanding Chronic Wasting Disease in Pennsylvania0

    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,

  • The History of Halloween Costumes0

  • UPMC Doc: Self-Awareness Key to Detecting Breast Cancer0

Some of the risk factors for breast cancer, such as genetics and age, are out of our control. But there are steps you can take to maximize your

  • County Hall Corner: History over Hysteria1

    Are these historic times? It is amazing how much our society has changed through 2020. Of course, much of this comes from the continual uncertainty of the COVID virus. I recently read one account by a world-renowned author noting the fear and poor leadership associated with the spread of the deadly virus. It was entitled,

  • Have Lies, Injustice, and the Social Media Way Become Our Kryptonite?1

    Before I get started this week, I’m going to self-correct. Last week, in my column, “The Armed and the Delirious” I had Lucille Zablocky at 84 years young as the most senior member of our Guns & Roses effort with National Range & Armory. It was brought to my attention that Barb Reish actually holds

  • Hybrid Learning

    Hybrid Learning0

    These are strange times, folks. Strange times indeed. I wanted to step out of the box this week and give some love to our kids. Not just the student-athletes. But every youngster who has had to make sacrifices over the course of this pandemic. This whole thing sucks, and I truly feel bad for them

  • How Deer Hunting has Changed0

    With the opening of archery deer season last week, it’s safe to say that deer hunting will be a common topic when a bunch of hunters get together.

  • The Playoff$0

  • Style File: Chic0

    Some may say that it is hard to define chic style; it’s a “know it when you see it” aesthetic. However, whenever I think of chic, I think of smart elegance and sophistication, a distinct mode of classic posturing, a little black dress, a single strand of pearls, Audrey Hepburn, a red lip. But that’s

  • Self-Exams Save Lives0

    Health has always been a priority for Daneen Zaleski, age 53, of Lewisburg. “Supporting breast cancer awareness, whether hosting charity events or encouraging screening, was always the right thing to do. Last year it became so much more personal when I was found to have a cancerous lump. The care and support that I received

  • County Hall Corner: Office of Voter Services Needs a Hug0

    Years ago, I had a boss who had a very annoying habit of giving me tasks with absolutely no clue on how I was to accomplish those tasks. He would come up with a crazy idea and say, “Larry, here is what I want done…” I would counter, “But sir, how exactly do you expect

  • The Armed and the Delirious0

    There has never been a more important time in American history to understand, support, and exercise our freedoms empowered by the Constitution of our great land.

  • Fire Prevention: More Than Just One Week a Year0

    Each year, hundreds die, thousands are injured, and millions of dollars in property damage is done by fires that happen in a wide variety of structures. Some simple preventative measures could have prevented most of these blazes. Knowing those preventative measures and acting on them is the essence of National Fire Prevention Week. In 1925,

  • Hunters, Don’t Overlook Your Health0

    Most hunters are preppers. Before the opening of the season they make sure the guns are sighted in, the clothes are scent-free, and the vacation days are planned well in advance for those upcoming opening days. However, one thing many often overlook is their physical fitness. Hunting can be a relaxing and enjoyable activity helping

  • Happy Fall Y’all

    Happy Fall Y’all0

    I appreciate all the love with regard to my “Unbelievable Fishing Story.” My phone has been ringing off the hook since last Tuesday. That muskie who inhaled my smallmouth bass has made me somewhat famous. It was truly a once in a lifetime experience, and I am extremely thankful that I came home with some

  • Signs of Stress in Children0

    The global pandemic sparked by the spread of the novel coronavirus COVID-19 caught many people off guard.

Whether you go for some farm-friendly pastimes, picking up produce, selecting the perfect pumpkin for your porch jack-o-lantern, or just a change of scenery,

  • County Hall Corner: Extra! Extra! The Latest on Mail-In Ballots0

    As I have noted in my last County Hall Corner, living abroad resulted in my having to explain many American idiosyncrasies. It is not just our sports vocabulary but also the extremely odd way we go about electing a President of the United States compared to the relatively simple way heads of state are elected

    Those who enjoy the taste of squirrel pot pie were able to spend a few of the last days of summer in pursuit of squirrel throughout the state since September 12.
