    A Date of Infamy, Honor, and Remembrance0

    With our cover date reading December 7th, I would be remiss as an American if I didn’t begin my column with what occurred 81 years ago. Over the past several years, it has become most evident that our Nation must not only remember our history but learn from it. As I watch the reports regarding

  • Holidays in Full Swing…0

    Sorta… Every. Dang. Year. 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 am once again so far behind the 8-ball, it’s sitting in a different room — #ChristmasFail. On the upside, this happens every year, and every

  • The Salvation Army’s 2022 Festival of Trees0

  • The Gifts of Heaven – Peace0

  • Christmas Time Is Here

    Christmas Time Is Here0

    As I sit here writing my column, it’s officially December 1! It’s so hard to believe. I feel like I just told my momma on the phone on June 25 that it was six months until Christmas! I also said it would be here before we knew it, and in a blink of an eye,

  • Lady Escape0

    My best friend is a flight attendant; hence she is quite literally all over the map. So, we don’t get to see each other as often as either of us would like. During the holiday season, her work schedule goes into overdrive, as you can imagine. However, there is a bit of a lull in

  • County Hall Corner: Dining with the Defeated0

    My wife and I are elected representatives for the Republican Party in Clinton Township, and in that capacity, we get invited to several events. A couple of weeks ago, we received an invite in our email, “for those of you who worked the polls during this past election, you have been invited to a dinner

  • The Bookworm Sez: Holiday Gift Ideas, Part 10

    The tree looks magnificent. Your kids did a great job decorating the parts you assigned to them; you took pictures this year, because they really outdid themselves. So you’re ready – almost – for the holidays, except for those few tricky gifts that you just can’t seem to figure out. How about books? Easy to

  • Repasz Holiday Concert, 20220

    “The Repasz Band is back in full force!” declares conductor Jeff Dent. Indeed, after various COVID-related struggles with membership, practice and performance going all the way back to the spring of 2020, the city’s 191-year-old ensemble will perform its regular holiday concert this year with a full complement of roughly 70 musicians. The free performance

  • The Roving Sportsman… Reading By the Fireplace0

    Temperatures are slowly trending downward, the daylight hours get shorter with each passing day, and soon the landscape will be covered in a layer of white. Many of us will reduce our time out of doors and turn to inside activities as the onset of winter doldrums sets in. A great pastime for the months

  • NIL Changing the Game0

    The four-day football feast served up by the Thanksgiving weekend provided some savory treats to snack upon. There were upsets; Michigan over Ohio State, South Carolina surprising Clemson, and Texas A&M sending Brian Kelley’s LSU troops back to the Bayou with a 38-23 loss that ended the team’s chances of an NCAA Final Four appearance.

  • The Cost of Enjoying Outdoor Activities

    The Cost of Enjoying Outdoor Activities0

    Like a lot of people, I enjoy outdoor activities, more specifically hunting and fishing, which I do on a year-round basis. Like many others, I have accumulated a pretty good amount of outdoor gear over the years. I’ve never really sat down and tried to figure out how much I have invested in all that

  • Rediscovering “The Greatest”0

    “The Greatest!” When people hear those words, most know, at least those thinking in an earthly realm and those over 40, that you’re talking about the iconic Muhammad Ali — three time (1964, 1974 & 1979) heavyweight boxing champion of the world! Growing up, I actively followed Ali’s boxing exploits and enjoyed his poetic banter

  • An Amish Tale0

    Happy belated Thanksgiving to all of my family and friends. It is a wonderful time of year to simply hang out and veg. I am extremely blessed to have so many great chums. But I am very thankful for a few. They saved the day, and I consider them as my bearded brethren. I will

  • Marine Corps League Detachment #388 More Than Toys for Tots0

    The Toys for Tots program is a Christmastime staple associated with the United States Marine Corps Reserve and its allied group, the Marine Corps League. Many people need to be made aware of the Marine Corps League and its commitment to community service. The local Detachment of the Marine Corps League #388, is involved in

  • UPMC Expert: Pediatric Rehabilitation Supports Growth, Well-being0

    As a parent, you want the best for your child. Children are amazingly resilient, and your hopes are to see them grow and flourish into independence. Sometimes life can throw your child a curveball, especially when it’s related to an acute injury, long-term illness, or disability, and they may need a little help. When that

  • Grit: December 8, 1957 – Monday Night Store Openings Draw Lots of Customers0

    At least 36 Williamsport stores were open Monday evening, the first such opening in which a number of stores are pledged to continue for at least six months.

  • Doubling Up Dave’s Red Kettle Donation

    Doubling Up Dave’s Red Kettle Donation0

    The hustle and bustle of the holiday season are in full swing across the West Branch Valley. That means it’s time for me to go to work, ringing the bell for The Salvation Army. I’m sure most of you know the story, but for our new readers and maybe those that have forgotten, Dave Sechler
