  • Po's Peek at the Past

    Dave Potchak|Jun 13, 2019

    June 1, 1992, is a date that will live with me in infamy. That is the day I turned the big 4-0, and the day when I offered my son some pointers for his upcoming competition in the school's track and field day. Notice, I did not say, "he asked me for some help." Instead I offered, then begged, then coerced, and finally demanded that we go into the garage where he could pick up some valuable tips to better his distance in the standing long jump. Dad and coach – it never works As a former track a...

    Lisa See is a master of historical fiction. She is the popular author of "The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane," "Shanghai Girls" and "Snow Flower and the Secret Fan."

  • An Appreciation for the Cove's Community Hospital

    RICK BOSTON|Jun 13, 2019

    Thursday, June 6, was supposed to be a busy, yet fun day for me, a day I had meticulously planned out to make sure I could do everything with time to spare. It was my daughter Olivia’s last day as a first grader at St. Patrick Catholic school, and I knew it was going to be an emotional day for her. As our tradition, a last-day-of-school date was planned for later that afternoon. My plan was simple, drop Olivia off at school, get to my desk at the Herald to check my email and plan stories for the coming week, and then off to Williamsburg, w...

  • Central High School Students Learn Danger of Vaping

    RICK BOSTON, Staff Writer|Jun 13, 2019

    In 1965, Congress passed a law requiring all cigarette packages sold in the United States to carry a health warning. In 1970, cigarette companies were no longer permitted to advertise their products on television or radio. Led by the surgeon general, the push was on to change America's view on smoking, shifting away from the glamorous depiction in movies, to the real, often devastating consequences for health. Statistics have shown that educating the public on the dangers of smoking is...

  • The Sportsman's Corner

    RICHARD TATE, Correspondent|Jun 13, 2019

    June 17 is the first day to buy hunting licenses for the 2019-00 hunting seasons. It will be interesting to see how many additional hunters drop out of hunting because of the PGC's short-sighted policies. If I didn't already have a lifetime license, I don't know whether I would spend the money on a Pennsylvania license, though turkey hunting would probably keep me in the license-buying fold. I am concerned about the future of wild-turkey hunting. The population of birds has shrunk throughout...

Hunters who acquired their senior lifetime licenses after May 13, 2017 are required to obtain an annual pheasant permit to hunt or harvest pheasants. A compl...

    Roseann Zimmerman, Correspondent|Jun 13, 2019

    The soybean plants stretched in long rows towards the woods nestled in the southeast hills, while squirrels scolded from the oak trees that surrounded my daughter's backyard deck. I was only subconsciously aware of bean fields, squirrels and oak trees because we were trying to help the boys use the new squeeze 'n blow pop-up bubbles. Six-year-old Tyson eventually mastered the technique of making bubbles but Conner, at only half the years, had a time with remembering when to stop squeezing, then...

  • Not Your Typical Church Lady

    Kelly Baker, Correspondent|Jun 13, 2019

    During the winter I tend to hibernate. I eat snacks and cookies and enjoy going to bed as early as possible. This is how I cope with the long, dark days of winter. Eventually spring rolls around and the days begin to get lighter and warmer, prompting me to get my spring and summer clothes out. That's when I always notice that the cookies, snacks and naps during hibernation were not kind to me. It happened again this year – my trusty shorts and T-shirts seemed to have shrunk over the winter. A...

  • Thought for the Week

    Pastor Earl Herr, Correspondent|Jun 13, 2019

    Persecution again came against Paul and his companions. It was organized and it was severe. Persecution does not prevent Paul from sharing the Gospel, it propels him. He simply moves on to the next stop. In this case it is a trip of some 60 miles to the city of Berea. A couple of things about persecution: It seems where persecution is strongest, the church is strongest. When persecution comes against Paul, he leaves the area. He seems to do it when persecution is still mainly against him. Those...

  • Gunsmithing Business Looks to Enter Borough

    Several months ago, Zach Biddle attended a Williamsburg Borough Council meeting in hopes to get the borough to work on the steps to allow his business, Ridgeline Gunsmithing, to occupy the now vacant Dollar General property. Following the story breaking, another business worked to occupy the store; however, that deal fell through and during last Monday evening’s (June 3) Williamsburg Borough Council meeting, Biddle was on hand to get the process started again. Council member Don Zimmerman said the board wants to do “what is easiest for him, but...

  • Williamsburg Municipal Authority Raises Rates in 2020

    Natalie Gorsuch, Williamsburg Correspondent|Jun 13, 2019

    Williamsburg Municipal Authority members did something they had hoped not to – raise water rates during last Tuesday’s (June 4) meeting. During the Pennvest project process, the Williamsburg Municipal Authority was not eligible for any grants because its “rates were too low.” However, to qualify for the Pennvest loan, rates needed to be raised to make sure they were “satisfactory” for the authority to be able to pay for loan. Authority members were unaware of this stipulation in the agreement passed and voiced displeasure for Stiffler McGraw fo...

  • Students Learn Ways to Deal with Anxiety

    Natalie Gorsuch, Williamsburg Correspondent|Jun 13, 2019

    When you see a bouncy house, an inflatable spider, and a lifesize Jenga board, what comes to your mind? For Williamsburg School District students, this was no party, this was a career carnival, brainchild of Guidance Counselor Carrie Loose. Loose came up with the idea after a brainstorming session with OVR counselors Autumn Temple and Jacki Thorton, who come to the school district twice a month to work with students. "My main goal for the event was to have the students actively engaged while...
