  • Heart Surgery Just Isn't Much Fun

    Linda Williams|Aug 24, 2023

    It all started last Christmas when an echocardiogram revealed I needed a heart catheterization. The “cath” showed I had a leaky diseased aortic valve and to top it off, an aneurysm. I could get it fixed or die, simple as that. My family convinced me I still had some years left on planet Earth and I pushed onward. Having a cardiac anesthesiologist cousin was mighty handy. He guided me in finding the best place to go. “You want a team,” he said. “A whole team of good doctors, not just one. If something goes wrong, there is backup. He also note...

When her father died, Vivienne expected to enjoy the freedom of no longer having a controlling father. Yes, she would help other women who needed to be freed from men who abused them. H...

  • Letters to the Editor

    Aug 24, 2023

    To the Editor: At the turn of the millennium the PGC, DCNR and groups like QDMA (now NDA) told PA hunters that deer were responsible for nearly every forest woe and the way to fix those woes was to drastically reduce, to unhuntable numbers in some areas, the deer population. With deer eliminated, the understory would magically burst forth again; plants other than ferns would return to the forest floor; and all the forest would again be happy. Many of us balked at the notion that deer were the sole cause of forest woes and we cringed at the...

  • They Crucified Him

    PASTOR LEE SEESE|Aug 24, 2023

    As my long series from the gospel of John winds down we find ourselves reading about the crucifixion and thinking about what it means to us. While this is something that people often equate with the Easter season, any good Christian knows that the crucifixion and resurrection should be at the forefront of our thinking because of all that they accomplished. The adult Bible fellowship in our church has been going through the book of Acts and recently we read something that was said by one of the rulers who was examining the apostle Paul. Like...

  • Thought for the Week

    Paster Earl Herr|Aug 24, 2023

    It is true that our children did not have basic “terrible anythings” but they had another childhood disease: “Asking Questions.” They asked dozens...hundreds, perhaps even...thousands. I think the chief one was “Why?” You know you can ask “Why? about facts, stories, incidents, activities, almost everything. You can even ask “Why? why is a question?” My wife was not very sympathetic either. She said, “It’s your own fault. They ask a simple question and you preach ‘em a sermon.” Probably, “gui...

Local churches, the Ladies Encounter and special volunteers have aided this call by joining mission groups to go to Barbuda and hold other fundraisers. One group that held a special fundraiser in the spring of this year at Iron Masters Gulf Club was the Synago 31st Street H...

  • Green Hornets Young but Hopeful

    PHILIP CMOR, For the Herald|Aug 24, 2023

    Most of Bill Musser’s Juniata Valley and Williamsburg football players this season aren’t old enough to drive. Musser, though, is handing them the keys to his Juniata Valley football program for the next few months. It’s a matter of necessity. Graduation has compounded with injury to decimate the starting lineup of last year’s District 6 Class 1A playoff team. The roster is primarily sophomores and freshmen, and many of those sophomores have barely gotten on the field, so it’s an experienced group, as well. The Green Hornet nickname is more a...

  • Remember When...Louie's Coral Lounge

    NATALIE GORSUCH, Williamsburg Correspondent|Aug 24, 2023

    We have been taking a memorable walk back in time in our great town of Williamsburg. This trip takes us to the top of Short Mountain to Louie’s Coral Lounge – an Italian eatery owned and operated by Louie Sotille and his wife, Mary. I decided to ask the Williamsburgers this week, “What were the fondest memories of Louie’s Coral Lounge?” Here is what a few had to say: Connie Brumbaugh: Weekend dates there; a great place to hang out and have good food. A Barney special with the meat warmed, and a Mickey Mouse. Or homemade spaghetti and meatballs...

  • The Heat of the War Bring Young And Old to Fight for Pennsylvania

    KATHY MELLOTT|Aug 24, 2023

    The summer 1863 was a hot one — not only in terms of temperature and humidity — but the Civil War was raging on and the southern Confederates were determined to repeat in Pennsylvania the destruction carried out elsewhere. The men in Blair and Bedford counties were hesitant, for a variety of reasons, to take up arms and head to the trenches built at mountain passes in Morrisons Cove to keep the rebels at bay. The call went out by Pennsylvania leaders for state militia volunteers, but very few volunteers responded, according to one Civil War...

  • C-K Starting Season With All New Everything

    PHILIP CMOR, For the Herald|Aug 24, 2023

    “New … And, Hopefully, Improved,” could be the marketing slogan if Claysburg-Kimmel High School decided to run an ad campaign touting its 2023 Bulldog football team. The Bulldogs will come out to a newly refurbished field when it opens the season on Friday against visiting Berlin Brothersvalley, with new head coach Chuck Kassick unleashing a new-style offense with a lot of new faces at the skill positions. That’s made for a lot of new optimism for a program trying to turn around a 1-9 campaign last fall. “I think this is the most amount of...

  • Anticipation

    RICHARD TATE|Aug 24, 2023

    August is not at the top of the list of sportsmen’s favorite months. Eager bass fishermen are out making some good catches, and the few groundhog hunters who are still active are pursuing the “pasture grizzlies.” However, most sportsmen are in “sleep mode.” While in sleep mode, many sportsmen anticipate easing out of their torpor and into some active outdoor adventures. Probably the sportsmen who are most eagerly anticipating autumn are deer hunters, especially bow and crossbow hunters. Having acquired their special licenses, they are ready...

  • NB Sticking With Last Year's Success

    PHILIP CMOR, For the Herald|Aug 24, 2023

    If it’s not broke, don’t fix it. The Northern Bedford County High School football team isn’t broke. With starters back at 19 positions, the Black Panthers are far from it, in fact. They look just like last year’s 11-1 squad. No. It seems if anything is going to be broken this year, it’s going to be the Panthers’ opposition. Two seasons removed from making the PIAA Class 1A quarterfinals and 10 months away from a heartbreaking loss to Windber that denied it a return trip to states, Northern Bedford is setting a high bar for itself this season...
