  • False Prophets

    Apr 4, 2019

    He was a physician though he may not have had a medical degree, and yet that didn't matter to the people of France during a time of plague. Using a combination of common-sense hygiene and dietary supplements rich in vitamins, many of his patients saw their health improve, even to the point of being declared cured. It's no wonder that he earned quite a loyal following. And yet, we don't remember Michel de Nostradame as an acclaimed healer. Rather, it was his infatuation with astrology that was to...

    The Good Neighbor: The Life and Work of Fred Rogers By Maxwell King Many have enjoyed watching Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood as children or with their children. For regular viewers, this friendly, gentle man and the land of make-believe were a staple of our childhood. We learned about people in our neighborhood and how things worked. We met new people through a television show, and as always were reassured that we were special just the way we were. The man behind the show was more than just the...

    I am writing this to ask how come after almost two years and 25 million dollars of taxpayer money being spent, the Democrats are not willing to just set back and accept the Mueller report? I would like to point out that back in the 90s we had a president (note the small “p”) who in my opinion brought more shame to the office of “President of the USA” than any other president in history! Bill Clinton! Oh let us see, he was a draft dodger because he won a Rhodes Scholarship. Then back in the early 60s we had a President who I greatly admired...

  • Guest Commentary

    Apr 4, 2019

    By AMY GORSUCH Williamsburg Recently, it has been made public that the Brumbaugh family of Royer has been in the center of a parking issue with the Royer Mansion. It has been known and stated by several community members that the current tenants of Royer Mansion have made several negative comments regarding our family, mostly because of the recent decision to terminate a previous agreement which allowed parking on our grounds during mansion events. We feel, because of this decision, and the comments that have been made, our family is looking...

    DAVID M. SANKO, Executive Director Pa. State Association of Township Supervisors|Apr 4, 2019

    You may read about them in the newspaper or see them along local roads, plowing snow in the winter or patching potholes in the spring. They’re your township supervisors and staff, and while you may not know them personally, these public servants show up each and every day with one goal in mind: to build a better community for you, your family, and your neighbors. As Pennsylvania celebrates Local Government Week, April 8-12, this is the perfect opportunity for you to better understand the critical role your township and its officials play in t...

  • Letter to the Editor

    Apr 4, 2019

    To the Editor: Once re-election time arrives, voters always sport questions for those running. The question for many seeking a post as county commissioner relates to the reassessment debacle. While both of our other commissioners, Terry Tomassetti and Ted Beam, approved of the issue, Bruce Erb played no role in implementing it. I frequently see many people chastising him for his alleged involvement with this process, but Erb did not get elected, let alone sworn in, until after the other commissioners already passed it. Commissioner Erb continue...

    BRUCE ERB, Blair County Commissioner|Apr 4, 2019

    When Blair County Commissioner Terry Tomassetti advocated for the establishment of a Home Rule Study for Blair County in the fall of 2018, I publicly stated that I wanted to take the time to study the issue and gather information before offering an opinion. Commissioner Ted Beam expressed his opposition shortly thereafter. I had the opportunity to read the Department of Community & Economic Development’s publication “Home Rule in Pennsylvania.” My research also included discussions with leaders at the County Commissioners Association of Penns...

    Herald of April 3, 1969 Decline of the moral fiber of people has caused the increase in crime in recent years, according to Gordon Stroup, district attorney of Bedford County.

    Herald of April 6, 1944 Fire threatened the section of North Market street near the Square Saturday when a blaze was discovered in the former REA building just in time to prevent a big conflagration.

The fire started from an overheated oil stove in the Hinish apartment at the end of the building next to the North Market street grocery, which is across the alley in the Wagner building.

    Spring took me by the throat on the last Saturday in March. I’ve heard of spring fever, but this was even more violent. The outdoors was invitingly warm with sunshine, but I had to endure my weekly cleaning first. Subdued and songless, I hurried to finish before lunch so I could escape as soon as my dishes were washed. The tree swallows had just returned from the south and greeted me with their gentle twitters when I stepped outside with only a sweater. The south wind was soft even when the sun wasn’t shining, but it was strong. It whipped at m...

    Pastor Earl Herr, Correspondent|Apr 4, 2019

    Something even more important than wise men with broad understanding is required of a council. Certainly prayer is imperative. But there must be a focus on Jesus and the Scripture. I would call these the Written Word and the Living Word. The debate we are studying basically says Gentiles could not be included in the Church unless they first became Jews; hence the need for circumcision (family) and the keeping of The Law, (works). Paul sees the Church as open to any and all God chooses to call,...
