  • Stay Safe While Grilling

    Jul 8, 2021

    Grilling food is so popular that more than three-quarters of U.S. adults have used a grill — yet, grilling sparks more than 10,000 home fires on average each year. To avoid this, the Red Cross offers these grilling safety tips: • Always supervise a barbecue grill when in use. Don’t add charcoal starter fluid when coals have already been ignited. • Never grill indoors — not in the house, camper, tent or any enclosed area. • Make sure everyone, including pets, stays away from the grill. • Keep the grill out in the open, away from the house,...

  • My Two Favorite Golf Courses: Iron Masters and Royal St. George's

    JAMES WENTZ, For the Herald|Jul 8, 2021

    In my active adult recreational sporting days, between the ages of 20 and 70, I concentrated on two especially enjoyable pastimes: snow skiing in the winter and golf in the summer. In addition to golf courses in the United States, I have been fortunate enough to play overseas at venues in Italy, Germany, Britain, Japan, Australia and Brazil. But, two golf courses have special places in my golfing memory. The first is Iron Masters, outside Roaring Spring. After WWII, the idea of constructing a golf course in rural Morrisons Cove was considered u...

  • cloudLibrary: eBooks, Audiobooks from the Comfort of Your Home

    Jul 8, 2021

    cloudLibrary saved me from absolute and total boredom. I discovered this gem when the Commonwealth was shut down due to COVID-19. I read a lot of books. I think it was somewhere around 25 in total.

The researchers, affiliated with the college’s Center for Economic and Community Development, analyzed data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture and summarized their...

  • Thought for the Week

    Pastor Earl Herr|Jul 8, 2021

    I am writing this on the longest day of 2021. It reminds me of the longest day in history. It was a day Israel and Amorites were engaged in war. The Lord commanded the sun and the moon to stand still. He rained down huge hailstones on the enemy so more were killed by hailstones than by the sword of Israel. The story reminded me God frequently did special things and gave great deliverances for Israel when they trusted and were obedient to Him. A lot of terrible things happened in the Old...

  • What to Remember While Caring for Pets and Livestock in Summer Heat

  • AARP Warns of July Scams

    Jul 8, 2021

    Door-to-Door Scams Warm weather is here, which means door-to-door sales crews are here, too. But what they’re selling isn’t always legit. Be cautious anytime a stranger comes knocking, especially if the visitor is trying to sell you goods or services. Be wary of contractors who say they stopped by because they just happened to be in the neighborhood. The good ones are usually too busy to roam around in search of work. Also be on guard for high pressure tactics to make a quick decision for a steep discount, and requests for payment upfront. You...

  • Locusts Change Of Pace

    Jul 8, 2021

    The locusts are all but gone now. (Yes, I know the proper name for the big bugs that emerged this year for the first time in 17 years is "cicada." However, the "old timers" of my youth called them locusts. So, to me, locusts they remain.) Anyhow, the large emergence of Brood X locusts that occurred during June on several streams provided a nice change of pace from my normal early summer nymph-fishing, which is generally the most effective method of summer fly-fishing. This year, I had...
