We were busy getting ready for Easter. Our family was all coming over. It was the weekend before, and we were doing yard work. The normal spring clean-up and getting our plastic eggs on our front bush with our light-up bunny. (Yeah, I was a bit behind on that.) We had a big mountain stone
Last week I started working the soil in my garden and realized that I should take a soil sample before applying any compost or fertilizers. After I got the soil results back, I knew I was good after adding some lime and compost. I thought this week I could share some composting tips again. Compost
ARIES – Mar 21–Apr 20 You don’t want to have mundane tasks hanging over your head, Aries. Try to check as many of them off your to-do list this week as you can. This will free up a lot of free time. TAURUS – Apr 21–May 21 Taurus, you may be planning a much-needed vacation
A citywide cleanup. What a great way to celebrate Earth Day. That’s the thinking of the folks who have organized the citywide cleanup for Saturday, April 22, which happens to be Earth Day. The City of Williamsport Recreation Department is partnering with Lycoming College, Penn College, and Newberry Community Partnership to host a citywide spring
Despite busy lives and full schedules, finding time for regular meals with loved ones encourages connections and conversations that can benefit mental and physical well-being. Gathering your family, friends, coworkers or neighbors at least once a week to spend time together over a meal provides opportunities to decompress and socialize. If you’re looking for a
The Covered Bridge at Logan Mills will be the subject of the 2023 puzzle, the second in the Clinton County Visitors Bureau’s annual ‘Clinton County Landmarks’ puzzle series. The Visitors Bureau, part of the Clinton County Economic Partnership, is now accepting pre-orders for the puzzle, and, as was the case for last year’s inaugural puzzle
As of Monday, April 17, the Montgomery Area Public Library will be a fine-free library. This change affects items owned by the Montgomery Area Public Library, but not neighboring libraries in Montoursville or Jersey Shore.

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. I have already discussed the idea that the definitions of happiness and direction vary from person to person and that people should live in
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
Thank you to everyone that came out and made this year’s West Branch Susquehanna Builder’s Home Show a great success. Over 3,000 folks made the trip to the old Dick’s building at the Lycoming Mall.

In July of 2016 I wrote the following: “Let’s make this perfectly clear. Crystal clear. Just-Windexed-sun-streaming-in-clear. There is never, and I mean never, a justification for rape or sexual assault. I don’t care if you bought her a drink. I don’t care if you bought her dinner. I don’t care if she flirted with you.

However, committing to a nutritionally friendly way of life doesn’t have to leave desserts by the wayside. Instead, rethinking nighttime treats with better-for-you ingredients like California Prunes as a quick substitution
