  • The Label Isn't Always Accurate

    CHRIS GARRETSON, For the Herald|Aug 10, 2023

    So I’m a big fan of soup. Those of you who know me are probably shocked that I’m writing about food, but hang in there, I’m just setting up the story. One day a few years back, I was driving home and literally daydreaming about a can of wedding soup I had in my cupboard. Wedding soup is in my top four as far as favorite soups. It’s on my Mount Rushmore of soups. You get the point. When I finally got home and cracked open that can of wedding soup I was met with total disappointment. Even though the label on the can said “Italian wedding s...

    PASTOR LEE SEESE|Aug 10, 2023

    I do not have to tell my readers that life does not always go as planned. There are disappointments and times where we must adjust to changes and challenges. Today I thought I would take my laptop and Bible on my back deck to write this column. I enjoy hearing the gentle breezes and the birds singing. As I was about to begin, I heard a loud buzzing sound. Thankfully it wasn’t yellow jackets. Both my wife and I have been stung this summer with those small, powerful insects. Instead, it was a louder buzz. A crew working on my neighbor’s lawn bro...

  • Thought for the Week

    Paster Earl Herr|Aug 10, 2023

    When Haman cast the lot (Pur) I expect he was frustrated it would be a whole year until his vengeance was satisfied. But it is certainly a good thing from Mordecai’s perspective. He has almost nine months to get things fixed up for the Jews to at least defend themselves. Two things need to happen: The message must get into the hands of everyone. Those who hear this new decree must believe it is true. Getting it out works this way. The messengers were well mounted. They had horses (for flat p...

    When in the outdoors, sportsmen observe various things. Let's start with some good things I have seen this year.

I doubled that this year, which is not especially encouraging but is a slight improvement. The first of these grouse was one of the "tame" type the game commission wants people to report seeing so that...

    NATALIE GORSUCH, Williamsburg Correspondent|Aug 10, 2023

    In last week’s Herald edition, a lot of history was brought up. I — like so many of the younger generation of our town — don’t know how great and lively Williamsburg once was. According to my mom Suzanne some of “the best places to be growing up was both Rat’s and Shickle's.” This inspired my question for the week: what did you love most about Rat's and Shickle’s? For context, the location of Rat’s was the Rhodes’ building and Shickle’s was located by the Williamsburg Hotel. Here is what a few residents had to say: Walt Frank: I could read the...
