  • Ask the Williamsburgers

    NATALIE GORSUCH, Williamsburg Correspondent|Jan 19, 2023

    More often than not, we are blessed with the people we have and know in our lives. We often don’t realize how much of an impact they’ve had on our lives until they are gone and we can’t tell them. This sad but truthful notion inspired my very popular question this week: If you had a chance to have an hour-long conversation with someone, dead or alive, celebrity or not – who would it be and why? Here is what a few had to say: Zena Saylor: My son Joey – because we miss and love him so much. Polly Eastep: My first husband Ron to tell him I’m o...

  • Jewelry Company's Old Ads Feature Bedford County

    KATHY MELLOTT, For the Herald|Jan 19, 2023

    Advertising: the method used by businesses to catch the public eye regarding goods or services being offered. Advertising is everywhere one looks today, but was a challenge for many two centuries ago when newspapers and roadside signs were among the few offerings. But one Pittsburgh jewelry company came up with an angle the owners hoped would keep their name and the quality of their product in the forefront for months if not years. The Roberts Jewelry Company, which boasted as being the oldest jewelry company in America, regularly ran...

    Jan 19, 2023

    Herald of Jan. 20, 1898 High winds did considerable damage in Williamsburg Thursday morning. The county election booth was lifted into the air, hurled around and hurled to the earth again with such force as to make kindling wood of it. A singular feature of the tornado was that it scooped up great volumes of water from the river, hurling them about with great force and returning them to the bed of the stream. On Thursday last, Henry Spanogle, Dave Miller, George Coppersmith and Will Lower, aided by four beagle hounds, pursued a red fox for ten...

  • Too. Many. Distractions.

    Linda Sollenberger|Jan 19, 2023

    In a couple of the daily devotionals I read, I saw the suggestion to choose a word to focus on for the new year, a word that would shape my life as the days unfold. Maybe the word would be patience, or peace, or gratitude. I had never read of this trend before and sat in some quietness pondering how I should shape my life over this new year. Life is busy. Life is noisy. Even as I age and truly see that it takes me longer to complete the things that we do each day, I also know that I need to spend more time in the Word, more time to pray. Yet...

  • Thought for the Week

    Paster Earl Herr|Jan 19, 2023

    “I want to always love You and be what You want me to be forever.” This was my closing sentence last time. Since God loves me (and you) perfectly, I think this should be my response to Him. When I was a child, we sang a hymn during worship services with these words: “Lord Jesus, I long to be perfectly whole, I want Thee forever to live in my soul. Break down every idol. Cast out every foe. Now, wash me and I shall be whiter than snow.” A chorus followed. That song resonated with me. I did and do...
