  • Symptoms Pet Have Allergies and What’s Behind Them0

    Allergies can vary in severity and cause various symptoms. According to the Mayo Clinic, allergies occur when the immune system reacts to a foreign substance by producing antibodies. These antibodies identify a particular allergen as harmful, even when it isn’t. Allergies can cause reactions in the skin, breathing passages and digestive system. Thousands of people

  • Setting the Record Straight1

    I have always made myself available to everyone with my contact information available on page 4. I encourage people to call or text me. Many email. This often leads to coffee, lunch, or a meeting in my conference room. I am not a believer in social media, although Webb Weekly can be found there. My

  • Winter Fun for Everyone0

    It’s that time of year, y’all — the dark and dreary days of winter. And as if January isn’t generally depressing enough on its own, we are still struggling with the COVID pandemic. It’s a formidable combination. Oddly enough, this is generally the time of year that I write an article telling you that winter

  • Competition Has Rules0

    Over the years, the cover date of this publication has coincided with significant or holiday dates on the calendar. Frequently, when this has occurred, I have written this column to be in keeping with whatever that special date may have been. As one looks at the cover of this January 20, 2021 publication, when the

  • Jacoby in Winter0

    North Central Pennsylvania is home to many treasures. Yes. We live in an area with such amazing beauty. My son and I take full advantage as we do our best to “commune with nature” as often as we can. I simply love to fish, but Jensen is more of an explorer these days. Hiking is

  • Winter Capsule Wardrobe0

    In the spirit of New Year’s resolutions and the idea of living a more sustainable and less cumbersome lifestyle, 2021 is the perfect year to consider building a capsule wardrobe. Capsule wardrobes push us to think more about what clothing we actually wear and whether we truly need each piece hanging in our closets. A

  • Catching Fish on a Frozen Lake0

    With decent ice forming on a number of area lakes, the hard water gang is out in full force. Last week we took a look at how we hard water anglers penetrated the ice barrier just to access the fish, but now I want to zero in on how to hook and land a fish

  • County Hall Corner: The Dream Speech Almost Didn’t Happen0

    Martin Luther King Jr.’s speech on August 28, 1963 before some 250,000 people on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. has become one of the most famous speeches in American history. It is known as “I Have a Dream” Speech, but there is tremendous irony here, as the whole section concerning the

  • The Roving Sportsman… Winter Feeding of Wildlife0

    In December, when Mother Nature decided to dump several feet of snow, then, shortly thereafter, several inches of rain throughout the region, she did no great favor for any of our wildlife. The rain compressed the snow below, then, with overnight freezing temperatures, managed to seal off things below with a layer of ice. In

  • Jersey Shore FBLA Operated Store at Nippenose Valley Village Helped To Enhance the Quality of Life For Residents There0

    The very active Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) Chapter of Jersey Shore High School has learned a lot about the workings of business through their operation of a store at the Nippenose Valley Village. Still, perhaps, more importantly, they have enhanced the quality of life for the residents, by having that store there at

  • No Number of Wrongs Ever Justify a Right2

    I cannot believe what I have witnessed in the United States of America in the last year. I am going to try to stay positive and touch on the issues of the past week that are most important. Before I get to the national disgrace that occurred in Washington, D.C., I need to spend a

  • A Healthier New Year0

    I’ll be honest. In an effort to support small business and help local restaurants stay afloat during the awfulness that was 2020, and seems to be continuing to 2021, I have spent a bit too much time eating. Eating carbs and other unhealthy food to be specific. So, it’s time to reel that back in

  • The New Love Center Serving the Hungry in Two Counties0

    The economic ravages produced by COVID-19 have taken a real financial toll on many families in this area. This toll is causing many families to have problems meeting their nutritional needs. One organization that helps them meet this challenge is the New Love Center, which offers services to families in both Lycoming and Clinton Counties

  • Rioting is Wrong0

    It is an obvious point. But one that needs to be repeated. Rioting is wrong. Period. I am no expert. Nor do I have any answers. But what went down last week is extremely frustrating. I won’t elaborate on the embarrassment. I can only condemn it. I will not point any fingers. Just don’t do

  • New Look Mid-Penn0

    Over the past several decades, high school athletic competition has seen some significant shifts regarding the makeup of individual conferences. Most prominent have been the formations of the Central Susquehanna Conference (CSC) and the Pennsylvania Heartland Athletic Conference (PHAC), both multi-tiered leagues, intended to be one-size-fits-all associations comprised of schools of many PIAA size classifications.

  • Color of the Year 20210

    Each December, the Pantone Color Institute, a limited liability company specializing in standardizing color reproduction used in industries like graphic design, fashion design, brand forecasting, and printing, attempts to predict the tone for the year ahead in the form of color. Back in December 2019, they choose the hue “Classic Blue,” which was meant to

  • A Memorable Game and A Lifelong Friendship

    A Memorable Game and A Lifelong Friendship0

    A recent trip to Harrisburg gave me the opportunity to pay a long-overdue visit to a long-time friend, a one-time “on-the-court” adversary, then a teammate, and forever my brother Larry Moore. His lovely wife Lana had made Larry a scrapbook of his glory days as a player for the Williamsport High School Millionaires back in

  • Wintertime Wildlife Activity0

    Every year, throughout the fall months, Mother Nature takes care of all of her creatures as they prepare to weather through the upcoming winter months. It is pretty amazing the way some of these birds, animals and insects prepare for and adjust their daily routines in order to make it through the freezing temperatures that

  • County Hall Corner: Shutdown Ill-Logic0

    More than three million people are injured every year due to car accidents, with more than two million resulting in permanent injuries. There are in excess of 40,000 deaths due to car accidents every year. Where is the outrage? What can be done about such a horrible carnage of death and destruction? I have the

  • Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.  – Once Spoke at Lycoming College

    Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. – Once Spoke at Lycoming College0

    Five years before Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. gave his immortal “I Have A Dream” speech, he spoke here in Williamsport to students at a chapel service at Clarke Chapel at Lycoming College on April 23, 1958. He was not yet the world-renowned iconic figure that he would later become. He was then head of

  • I’m Starting with the Man in the Mirror0

    A Happy 2021 to all! I pray as you are reading this, you and your loved ones are healthy, happy, and well. My title is from “Man in the Mirror,” Michael Jackson’s hit song with a message from 1988. It’s the perfect battle cry for the New Year. Google it and read the lyrics or

  • Donate Blood – Save a Life – National Blood Donor Month0

    As we, thankfully, say goodbye to 2020, it’s time to look forward and see what we can do to make 2021 a better year. COVID doesn’t seem to be going anywhere, but there is something that we can do to help those affected by COVID — donate blood and plasma. Particularly if you have recovered

  • An Ode to COVID0

    Probably the dumbest thing I did was try to get organized. I started with purchasing a 2020 planner. Dumb. The entire world has turned upside down. I am now telling my parents to stay indoors. But kudos to CORONA. It has done what no woman has been able to. She canceled sports, closed the bars

  • Grit: January 8, 1950 – Little League Becomes Corporate Body0

  • Area Businesses Stepping Up To Help Central Pennsylvania Food Bank0

    It is an understatement to say that 2020 has been a tough year, particularly because of COVID-19. One organization that has been doing its best to meet the challenges of those is need that has been accelerated by this crazy year has been the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank. Their capacity to help provide food for

  • Style File – Hygge

    Style File – Hygge0

    As we begin a new year facing a long, cold, and isolating winter, it may seem like there’s not much light at the end of the tunnel. However, instead of bracing ourselves against the lonely, dark days ahead, why not embrace sticking close to home with a bit of Hygge style? What is Hygge, and

  • Rick Mahonski – Wrestling Great

    Rick Mahonski – Wrestling Great0

    Though Rick Mahonski’s older brothers, Bob and Bill, wrestled, he did not intend to become a wrestler. In fact, it wasn’t until a 7th-grade gym class with Coach Hank Green that Mahonski seriously considered it. “Coach Green had these unbelievably tall climbing ropes in class, and if you could get to the top, he basically

  • Try Something Different – A Coyote Hunt0

    I’d be the first to admit that I am not a dedicated coyote hunter; I have on a few occasions pursued coyotes both during the daylight and at night, but I had no success. My lack of success by no means reflects a lack of coyotes and quite the opposite, I suspect, since coyote populations

  • Woodlands Bank Sponsors Students of Lycoming County0

    The Pennsylvania Council on Financial Literacy (PennCFL) provides to all students in grades 3-12 in Pennsylvania a world-class, web-based stock simulation platform and curriculum. Students can learn how to trade all year long by using the whole curriculum, courses, and more, including two ten-week competitions. The competitions are held in the classroom, by county and

  • The Roving Sportsman… Winter Hikes0

    There are many benefits that can be derived from a hike in the woods, especially this time of year. The days are slowly getting longer, the daytime temperatures are forecast to be a bit above normal for the beginning of January and we can all use some fresh clean air that we can breathe without

  • County Hall Corner: The Larry Awards for 20200

    The motion picture industry has its Oscar Awards, the theater industry has its Tony Awards, so it is time that County Hall Corner should have its Larry Awards. Following county government for the past six years, I believe it is time to give some recognition for the amazing jobs that many have performed through unprecedented

  • Chronic Kidney Disease: The Silent Killer

    Chronic Kidney Disease: The Silent Killer0

    Approximately 26 million American adults have chronic kidney disease and millions of others are at risk but may not know it. Kidney disease is often called the “silent killer,” because it has no symptoms until the advanced stage of the disease. In fact, one in nine Americans has chronic kidney disease and are unaware that

  • Pittsburgh’s Bell Silenced0

    On the day before Christmas all through the house Things were being shut down, it felt like a louse The weather was pouring, snow melting away Sending cascades of water down my driveway Church services were cancelled, people stayed home If you did leave your house there was nowhere to roam Then came some sports

  • Happy New Year!0

    There is no doubt that 2020 has been quite the year. Probably the most memorable of most of our lifetimes. To make things even more interesting, this is actually our 53rd issue of the year, which I had to double-check the calendar to see if that was even possible! Also, due to how the calendar

  • Major League Baseball Tries to Right A Historical Wrong By Recognizing the Negro Leagues As Major Leagues0

    Major League Baseball took a welcome and long overdue action two weeks after recognizing the Negro Leagues (1920-1948) and confer on them Major League status. This was a step to right a historical wrong that denied some of the best baseball players in history the opportunity to showcase their awesome talents only because they had

  • Changing Gears0

    Now that the regular firearms deer seasons are over, it’s time to start looking at some other outdoor ventures — more specifically, I’m talking about ice fishing. Sure, there are still some hunting opportunities that remain, like the late archery season, flintlock hunting for deer, and of course, some small game hunting, but if weather

  • Slipper Style0

    As we hunker down for winter, your current pair of plush socks or fuzzy slippers may be the worse for wear after one too many days spent inside. No time like the present to invest in a new, or even better, pair of slippers to revive your indoor wardrobe for these upcoming chilly months. Here’s
