  • Newcomers to the Cove: Claysburg

    JOSEPH WALK, For the Herald|Sep 29, 2022

    A few months ago I wrote a series about how towns in Morrisons Cove got their names. Claysburg, although not located in the Cove per se, is a neighboring community and a de facto member of our neighborhood. This is apparent as one reads our newspaper. For example, the Herald prints news about four school districts: Williamsburg, Central, Northern Bedford, and Claysburg-Kimmel. So, as a newcomer, I became curious about the town on the “other side” of Dunnings Mountain. The most common way to drive to Claysburg from our home is over Dunnings Mou...

  • A Historic Victory Brings Drug Price Relief to Pennsylvania's Seniors

    Bill Johnston-Walsh, AARP PA State Director|Sep 29, 2022

    Here in Pennsylvania and across the country, millions of seniors will get relief from a new law that will help reduce out-of-control drug prices. For the first time in decades, Big Pharma’s relentless grip on their wallets, medicine cabinets and peace of mind will begin to pry loose. After years of calling on Congress to make prescription drugs more affordable, we won the fight for Medicare to negotiate lower drug prices and help millions of seniors save money on their medications. That, in and of itself, is huge. But the new law, passed by C...

  • Letter to the Editor

    Sep 29, 2022

    To the Editor: Hello. Thank you for the history article On High Street, Williamsburg, there was the Blyler Butcher Shop. I cannot tell you if it was the exact property as the present laudromat. William Blyler was proprietor until the economy changed over the years. Then, he became chief of police in Williamsburg. I found the photo of the butcher shop on microfilm at the Blair County Geneaological Society. What a difference we make for students to discover ancestry! Joy Blyler Eger Note: This is in response to the article “Over Brings Walking H...

    Sep 29, 2022

    Herald of Oct. 7, 1897 Farmers are husking corn.Will there be any husking bees this season with lots of red ears in the shock? These old-time enjoyable affairs should not be allowed to fall into disuse. There is no truth in the report that silver was discovered at Hyndman. The men who are boring a well for the Hyndman Water Company stated that the drill they were using penetrated a solid 20-foot vein of fire clay. Mrs. Sannie F. Klepser, wife of Dr. R. C.

    Herald of Oct. 6, 1922 The winter’s round of Literary society meetings has begun. These educational and entertaining meetings are one of the best features of the community life of the Cove, and should be patronized and encouraged by every citizen. D. W. Smith of Piney Creek was leading a bull to water when the animal suddenly attacked him and mauled him against the fence. Fortunately the post broke and startled the animal.

  • Do Love

    Linda Sollenberger|Sep 29, 2022

    You probably remember that it was a lawyer who inspired Jesus to tell the story of the Good Samaritan. He seemed like a smart person with a well-trained mind. He seemed concerned with the law, if not justice and with drawing the line between right and wrong. And, since he is following Jesus around, he must also be a person who is hungry for God and who wishes to know what the life of faith might require of him. “What must I do to inherit eternal life,” he asks Jesus. Who does not wonder that? Who does not want that? Life with no end. Life wit...

    Sep 29, 2022

    If you happen to be in Bedford Square this week, you may notice that a pre-pandemic fixture is back on the sidewalks: smiling faces standing next to colorful carts featuring a positive message and free Bible-based literature. Thousands of these carts will be rolling down the streets of communities like Bedford across the world this week as Jehovah’s Witnesses recommence their global public preaching work some 24 months after putting it on pause due to the pandemic. “It is wonderful to be bac...

  • Thought for the Week

    Paster Earl Herr|Sep 29, 2022

    My thanks to Editor Anna Baughman for allowing me extra space for the last “Thought.” Today, we look at Isaiah 55 and we will likely switch to another book next. LISTEN EVERYONE, Isaiah begins this chapter. The message of the “Suffering Savior” is truly first of all for the Jews but God wants everyone to hear. For He loves everyone. God not only does not want anyone to be destroyed. He wants everyone to come in humble repentance for the sin committed so He can forgive and restore them to a right...

  • Catalano Releases a Christmas Book Centered on Santa, Baby Jesus

    ERIC SHIELDS, Hollidaysburg Correspondent|Sep 29, 2022

    Former Hollidaysburg author Tom Catalano has released his latest book entitled “Nicholas, the Santa Story.” Growing up, Catalano always celebrated Christmas the traditional way, with Santa, gift-giving, the Christmas tree and all of the other pageantry that goes along with the season. “We always knew that the reason that we did all of that was in celebration of the birth of Jesus,” Catalano said. “At our house, we have a Christmas tree ornament that shows Santa kneeling next to baby Jesus.

  • Pennsylvanian Postcards of the Past

    Sep 29, 2022

    The postcard on the left was sent to the Herald from Darwin Stapleton. He bought it at an antique store in Hopkins, Minnesota, which explains why it comes with an address from North Dakota. The postcard was sent from Punxsutawny in 1909. The writer, Alice, seems to have been traveling through the town, which is likely why she didn't notice that Horseshoe Curve is in Altoona, not Johnstown, as it states on the postcard. The postcard reads: "Dear Vera: We leave here Monday for Ohio. Suppose you...

  • Gender Identity Questions Raised at HASD Meeting

    THOMAS SCHMITT, Hollidaysburg Correspondent|Sep 29, 2022

    The September monthly meeting of the Hollidaysburg School District Board of Directors committee of the whole/voting meeting was highlighted by a spirited discussion over establishment of a gender identity policy. School board member Carmen Bilek wanted a policy established because it is in question whether teachers can initiate any type of gender identity discussion in any way. It was unclear whether a teacher could even address the class to tell them it was safe to approach them if they wished to identify by a different pronoun....

  • Borough Hears from Citizens Concerns About Flooding

    THOMAS SCHMITT, Hollidaysburg Correspondent|Sep 29, 2022

    A number of issues were discussed in unfinished business at the Hollidaysburg Borough Council monthly September meeting, but stormwater runoff and resulting flooding was the one given primary attention.

  • Kicking Off: Sosnowski a Highlight for Hollidaysburg

    PHILIP CMOR, For the Herald|Sep 29, 2022

    Between a brutal schedule and a wave of injuries, there hasn’t been a lot to cheer about yet this fall for the Hollidaysburg Area High School football team. The Golden Tigers are 0-5 halfway through the regular season. One thing Coach Homer DeLattre knows he can count on, though, is that senior Ben Sosnowski will give the Tigers a leg up on their opponents. Literally. Sosnowski is a kicking specialist who handles all Hollidaysburg’s placements, kickoffs and punting, and he’s turning in another outstanding campaign. “That’s a huge weapon in...

  • From the 'Burg to Your Kitchen

    NATALIE GORSUCH, Williamsburg Correspondent|Sep 29, 2022

    This little section has taken a long summer vacation, but we are back for fall. When I think of fall, besides pumpkins, I think about apples. A few weeks ago teaching at Bright Beginnings in Roaring Spring, we had "A is for Apple" Week, where we talked about Adam & Eve, the life cycle of an apple and the different parts of an apple. At the culmination of the week, we taste tested different kinds and colors of apples to determine which one was our favorite. This inspired a new recipe – apple c...

  • Getting Around in the Bygone Days

    KATHY MELLOTT, For the Herald|Sep 29, 2022

    As we jump in the car for the quarter-mile trip to pick up bread and milk, it’s difficult to imagine the days prior to car and truck or even bicycles, but for many Morrisons Cove residents of the past, if a horse was not around it meant exercising the always available “shank’s mare.” Ella Snowberger’s “Bygone Days in the Cove,” is replete with vignettes of people forced to make a trip to Johnstown or Altoona who had little choice but to rely on the good old shoe leather express. She speaks of a man from Southern Cove who had a meeting with...
