    Linda Williams|Jul 25, 2019

    July 4 was a hot and humid day. It was the kind of weather that old people are supposed to avoid by staying in the air conditioning. So, we obliged as we waited for the cool of the evening to partake of fireworks which were spectacular this year. Fireworks went off everywhere and continued throughout the weekend. It was a great celebration of our country's birthday of declaring independence from Great Britain. To keep in step with the day, we watched the musical "1776" written by Sherman...

    Herald of July 11, 1919 Martinsburg Borough, North Woodbury, Huston and Taylor townships should join in a permanent memorial. Why not? There is a little flower that blooms in its beauty; we call it the Forget-me-Not. One little act in life may be a perpetual Forget-me-Not. And when the deeds of hundreds of loyal hearts are woven into permanent memorial, the noblest traits of human lives are made manifest in visible form.

    RICHARD TATE, Correspondent|Jul 25, 2019

    "Don't you dare write anything negative about our trip to Cape May this year, Rich," Donna, my wife, recently warned me. "You and some of your friends might think your complaints about Cape May and the Eastern Shore are funny, but our granddaughter and I don't." With this in mind, I have been thinking about some other things to write about. One is something I have referred to in other years: the lack of groundhog hunters. Donna; Sage, her young dog; and I take rides nearly every evening. During...

  • Old Order Mennonite Memoirs

    Roseann Zimmerman, Correspondent|Jul 25, 2019

    "The sun moves westward out of sight; Its warmth remains to greet the night When sounds of crickets fill the air and fireflies venture from each lair To fascinate in unseen flight Those who watch their twinkling light. And from the south a gentle breeze Ruffles the leaves of maple trees That try to shade the moon's rich glow As it reflects the porch below, And folks are reluctant to leave Enchantments of a summer's eve." Often poetry doesn't fit exactly, doesn't always say what I want it to...

  • Can a School District Get Rid of Common Core Math? Hollidaysburg Might Find Out

    LOIS KANESHIKI|Jul 25, 2019

    We have been told over and over that we cannot get rid of Common Core at the school district level. These standards were adopted “voluntarily” by the states and nailed in by federal reporting standards. However, several events have transpired that have eroded this impossible web.

This love story got me thinking – Where did you and your significant other first meet? Here is what a few Williamsburg residents had to say: Sarah Hall: Match.com Jamie Shultz: On a bus to Dover, Delaware – on our way to a NASCAR race. James Flaig: We met in the school gymnasium....

It was well after sunset and the initial moonrise, but there was still an aura of pinks and purples surrounding the moon. There was no choice but to stand there in my driveway and allow myself to be captivated by it. It was bright enough to cast a shadow, which is always fascinating in the dark. The...

When we decide that we can work on what is God's will for us. I have said it multiple times. Paul started preaching in the Jewish synagogue. He frequently had some success. Often, before long, opposition was organized against him. Once that happened, hostility solidified and persecution began. Paul was often...
