  • Northern Bedford Geographically In Bedford County

    Linda Williams|Sep 21, 2023

    Situated in scenic Morrisons Cove, Northern Bedford County High School graduated its first class in 1963. Or so many think! The first NBC class graduated in 1958 and the seniors that year and all ensuing years up to 1963 graduated from the Smith building, which is no more. While I don’t know all of the history of education in the Cove, I do have personal knowledge of as far back as 1924. After my mother’s mother died in Chicago in 1921, my grandfather brought her back to Loysburg to live with her grandmother. She went to grade school in the pre...

  • Empty Tomb, Full Life

    PASTOR LEE SEESE|Sep 21, 2023

    This week I experienced something somewhat unusual. I met a family in the home of their mother who was dying. The woman’s husband, children and many others had recently been told that she was near death. They were trying to come to terms with it as I arrived on the scene. I have never seen so many people gathered in one house and bedroom in that circumstance. The patient’s son was on her bed and constantly rubbing her back. Others were holding her hand. They were crying, talking to her and in some ways holding on while saying goodbye. One of...

  • Thought for the Week

    Sep 21, 2023

    I would like to tell you when Jesus Christ will return to earth. But, I cannot. Lots of people want to know. Many have asked. Quite a few have even made predictions. So far, those predictions have been wrong, and they will continue to be. When Jesus was asked, He said He did not know but only the Father knew. In 1976, we made a trip to California for our church’s General Conference. We had our daughter Ruth with us. Most things went well. But at the end of Conference we were traveling toward t...

  • How Empty Nesters Can Overcome Boredom

    Sep 21, 2023

    Raising children is a significant responsibility. Parents know there's no such thing as a day off, which is why the first day they come home to an empty nest can be so confounding. After roughly two busy and likely hectic decades or more of looking after their children, parents whose sons or daughters have left home for the first time may experience feelings of sadness and loss. That's not unusual, as the Mayo Clinic notes it's a phenomenon known as "empty nest syndrome." Though it's not a clinical diagnosis, empty nest syndrome can be a...

  • Safety Upgrades For Seniors' Homes

    Sep 21, 2023

    Many seniors want to spend as long as possible residing in the comforts of their own homes. According to AARP’s 2021 “Home and Community Preferences Survey,” more than three-quarters of U.S. adults age 50 and older prefer living at home. But getting older often comes with certain deficits that may not make current living situations the safest for seniors.

  • Potentially Low-Maintenance Trees To Consider For Your Property

    Sep 21, 2023

    Few things in nature are as breathtaking as a beautiful landscape. That beauty is perhaps one reason why many homeowners spend so much time and expend so much effort on their lawns and gardens.

  • Ask the Williamsburgers

    NATALIE GORSUCH, Williamsburg Correspondent|Sep 21, 2023

    While I was visiting my parents’ house to celebrate my birthday this past weekend, we were talking about our relatives’ old meals and how much my parents missed good home cooking.

  • Deja Vu

    RICHARD TATE|Sep 21, 2023

    This past spring I wanted to take a photo of a special trout I had caught. After some maneuvering, the trout was in a perfect position for a photo, and I touched the camera button to get the photo.

I had broken the tip section the year before; so when I finally received the replacement butt section this summer, the rod was essentially a new one. I had bought the rod “used”; but wit...
