  • Expand Your Fish Catching Opportunities0

    Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve been writing about how one might go about increasing their fish catching opportunities. Being willing to target a variety of fish species is one way to increase your catch rate, and using a variety of equipment will also add to your numbers. Another possibility I would like to

  • I Got a Visit …0

    After the Earth Day feature last week, I got a visit from my friend Don. Now, Don has come to see me in the past requesting help to get the word out about an ongoing problem in the area. That problem is trash. See, Don lives on the outskirts and between where he lives and

  • Not Keen to the Club Scene0

    Some of you lucky elders out there may have been part of the famed Mickey Mouse Club. We won’t mention how long ago that actually was. But I will say Annette Funicello was probably one reason a few males signed up. I am here to report that I’ve been club less for quite a long

    On April 26, 1946, a highly decorated World War II pilot, Captain Lawrence Ritter, crashed in a freak snowstorm in the area near Slate Run, in northwestern Lycoming County.

  • In Praise of Leftovers0

    I’m a big fan of restaurants. The ambiance, the delectable fare, snagging a cozy booth for two, where my husband and I can engage in an actual face-to-face conversation — one almost entirely devoid of cell phones. And children. It’s all good. But mostly I like patronizing restaurants because it means I won’t have to

  • Earth Day0

    Sunday is Earth Day and this year’s campaign centers on ending plastic pollution — but I’ll get to that in a minute. The idea for Earth Day was the brainchild of then U.S. Senator Gaylord Nelson.

  • Greater Versatility Catches More Fish0

    In last week’s piece, I mentioned that versatility was a key to catching more fish. In fact, the whole point was that the more different species of fish you were willing to pursue the better your chances of hooking up — literally. I would like to continue that theme of versatility but with a different
