The human body is a well-oiled machine that is a wonder of biological efficiency when working properly. The body’s immune system is integral to keeping a person healthy, and it does that by recognizing foreign invaders, such as viruses and bacteria, and then launching an attack to eradicate them.

Beauty trends come and go, but accentuating your authentic, natural features, aka looking like your best self, never goes out of style — which is precisely where minimalist makeup comes in. Minimalist makeup is a mix of skincare, no-makeup makeup, as well as using fewer products in a smarter way. Think skin-perfecting tinted moisturizers, foolproof
A number of years ago, I was shopping at a local grocery store after work. I wanted to pick up a few items, including ingredients for a butter chicken recipe. The list included naan bread, a very common flatbread often associated with Indian, Western Asian, or Caribbean food. You can find it at pretty much
Springtime brings the return of the Pennsylvania black bear to many neighborhoods across the West Branch Valley. They are looking for a quick and easy meal, whether it be from a bird feeder, garbage can, picnic basket, or whatever they find appetizing that day. This was the case in my neighborhood last week, as there
If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a hundred times. If you claim there is nothing to do around here, you aren’t even trying. I haven’t done one of these in a while, so let’s run through some upcoming local activities, because there is little in the world I enjoy more than being right.
In 2022, Trinity Episcopal Pro-Cathedral (844 West Fourth Street, Williamsport) made a commitment to step outside their church walls and seek more direct ways to empower its neighbors to thrive. The church built a community garden and began a pollinator program. Non-stinging bee houses were hung outside the church, and a honeybee hive was placed
From my journey through skincare and beauty, I’ve come to realize that good skin health is all about a robust skin barrier. The skin barrier is the outermost part of the epidermis, acting like a wall with skin cells as bricks and mortar of essential nutrients like cholesterol, ceramides, and fatty acids. Our skin barrier
The anti-noise ordinance introduced yesterday at the request of Mayor Stabler will be hard on the business of Al Trowbridge, the soft pretzel vendor who occupies a stand near the corner of West Third and Pine streets and also peddles his ware on other streets. Al is a well-known character whose shouts of barter are
I am thankful to be at Lycoming. This is my second stint as the Warrior’s Golf Coach. I took a five-year hiatus after my mid-life crisis. I was with the team from 2001 to 2015. I stepped away to focus on other side hustles. They were extremely fun while they lasted. I got the call
Part 3 As I mentioned in previous installments of this article, there are some characteristics that, in my opinion, are key factors in maximizing one’s quality of life in later years.

This past Easter Sunday provided the Lowery clan with a most enjoyable get-together, the first such group opportunity since Christmas. The downstate trip included great conversation and catch-up, a tasty spread, and some backyard cornhole competition. Sprinkled in was a vast array of tempting cakes, pies, and sweet treat desserts. Not on the menu was
I know the title I chose for this week is offensive to some. I understand. Frankly, it’s a bit offensive to me. Something within the heart of every one of us wants to believe that we are the top. That we are the masters of our own destinies. That we can define our own morality.
Community health screenings are an important tool in preventive medicine, and it is with this in mind that students from Skills USA, at Central Mountain High School, held a Community Health Clinic in Mill Hall recently. The screenings included a series of pre-health screenings such as vital signs, blood sugar, blood pressure, and more! All
April is a special month for me as a writer for Webb Weekly. It was in April of 2014 that I wrote my first article, a LION (Leader in our Neighborhood), on Kathy Fenstamaker, a mother who hosted headbanger bands for young people. For the next two years, I wrote over 80 columns on all

With just over a week remaining until the opening day of Spring Gobbler season, take a few minutes now to check all the gear you carry in your turkey hunting vest. When it comes to hunting, there is probably no segment of hunters that is more eager to have the “latest gadgets and gear” than
