  • All of Us Need to Help Revitalize Our Democracy

    Aug 13, 2020

    By LEE H. HAMILTON For The Center Square Amid all the troubles occupying our attention, one of the more worrisome is also one of the least visible. It is the loss of public faith in the effectiveness of our representative democracy. Concern over our system as a whole is palpable: that it has trouble responding to the country’s needs, is resistant to reform as society evolves, and continues to perpetuate inequality and social immobility. Americans increasingly divide themselves into different, often warring, political and cultural camps. Some p...

  • Eight Tips To Make Farmers Markets Successful

    ERIN SCHOENBERG, Project Associate Center for Rural Affairs|Aug 13, 2020

    Are you a part of your local farmers market, as a customer, vendor, manager, cheerleader, or funder? Markets carry great tradition, and whatever your current or future role is, here are some tips and experiences from managers and staff. 1. Markets need to be dependable and well-advertised – day of week, time of market, and location should be established, well-known, and consistent. 2. A core group of vendors is important; customers want to know what to expect, and vendors see more consistent sales if they stick to a steady schedule. 3. There’s...

  • Lines by Lee

    PASTOR LEE SEESE, Correspondent|Aug 13, 2020

    I thought I would take a break from my series of columns from the Proverbs to reflect on my recently completed hurricane-shortened, mask-wearing vacation. I can still remember the vacations of my childhood. Neither of my parents grew up in a home where they could go to another state for a getaway. However, from the time I could remember they made sure their family of seven would have vacations to remember. I recall my Dad carrying me out to the family station wagon in the wee early hours of the...

  • W-Burg Authority Plans for Well Pump Update; Buys Utility Trailer

    Natalie Gorsuch, Williamsburg Correspondent|Aug 13, 2020

Penelec has to shut down power while the contractor pulls the pump. The cost for Penelec to do a complete disconnect/reconnect would be a total of $1,555. This cost would also apply to a shut-off when the pump is re-installed after updates are complete. Authority Member Harry Mullins made the motion to allow Penelec t...

  • The Sportsman's Corner

    RICHARD TATE, Correspondent|Aug 13, 2020

    When I am fishing, I occasionally encounter unusual things that have nothing to do with my fly-fishing adventures. One of the weirdest outdoor encounters I have had recently was finding a little mole trying to get himself out of an in-stream patch of dirty gunk that must once have been foam. Since moles live underground and are basically blind, this little guy had no idea how to extricate himself from the morass. I had an easy solution to his problem. I removed my landing net from my vest, slid...
