    With most state employee contracts expiring in June, Gov. Tom Wolf and government employee union leaders are negotiating behind closed doors over agreements worth more than $3 billion. How much, exactly, will taxpayers be on the hook for? We won’t know until a deal is struck.

  • Let's End Government Shutdowns For Good

    Linda Williams|Feb 28, 2019

    The second government shutdown in 2019 thankfully did not occur. Instead, our president chose to use other methods to get his much-needed wall on the southern border of the United States. A shutdown happens when a government budget isn't agreed upon by both congress and the president on a certain date and affects, not all, but a significant number of government employees which in turn can affect private citizens. Some groups of federal employees are expected to continue working without pay....

For many this would be a good thing, but Scott's weight loss is anything but ordinary. There's no explanation for it. And, he weighs...

    When Pennsylvania state Sen.

  • The Sportsman's Corner: A Word of Caution

    RICHARD TATE, Correspondent|Feb 28, 2019

    A few weeks ago, I wrote about the research Dr. Frank Bastian of Louisiana State University (LSU) is doing regarding Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD).

  • Old Order Mennonite Memoirs

    Roseann Zimmerman, Correspondent|Feb 28, 2019

    The sound of breaking ice was loud under the steel tractor wheels on Tuesday morning as my husband and I went for an unusual excursion across the ice-encrusted, snowy fields. The bright sunbeams reflected off the snow and into our laughing eyes as we headed for the hills that were calling me. Unyielding ice covered everything on the ground and unlike the tractor wheels, our feet could not break through, much less take confident steps. Jagged ice pieces lay in the wake of the wheels as we headed...

  • Lines By Lee: The Truth from Ruth: Part 1

    PASTOR LEE SEESE, Correspondent|Feb 28, 2019

    The book of Ruth is only four chapters long and named after the star of the story. It is easy to overlook the truths of the book or relegate it to a ladies Bible study. I thought it might be worthwhile to devote a few columns to this amazing story that has tragedy, romance, and historical value. It does not start well because there is a severe famine in the land. I like to eat pretty often. The fact that I have never faced a famine makes me grateful. Not only due people suffer during famines,...

  • Thought for the Week: It Happens A Lot

    Pastor Earl Herr, Correspondent|Feb 28, 2019

I wish it only happened against Christians, but unfortunately sometimes Christians do the persecuting. That should never be. We want others to hear the Good News of the Gospel. Once they have heard the responsibility for their reaction is with them. Paul and Barnabas, with their support group, fled to Iconium. I do not want to overlook the something special in 13:52: "The disciples were...

  • Williamsburg Community Mourns Two of Its Own

    Natalie Gorsuch, Williamsburg Correspondent|Feb 28, 2019

    Pastor Lori Lower has said of Williamsburg that we as a community are "filled with faith and love." At the beginning of this month, that faith and love was put through one of its toughest obstacles – losing two of the most beloved and respected residents all within a matter of days – Heather Stewart and Paul Lane. I was blessed with the opportunity to know these two people on a personal basis, and how blessed I was. I met Heather a few years ago when I started attending the Fairview Church...
