  • Sheetz Reveals Plan for Sarah Furnace Property

    To the Editor: On April 6, 2006, the Herald printed an article (on page A3) entitled “1880 Silk Sunday School Map of Cove on Display at Library” about a map that had been donated to the Williamsburg Public Library. Because my Stayer ancestors and related families lived in the Cove in the nineteenth century, I clipped the piece for my files, thinking that I would visit the library to study the map on one of my research trips to Bedford or Blair County. I was hoping that it might reference individual farms or residences. For years, I never fol...

  • Out of Commission

    Richard Tate|Oct 5, 2023

    “You’re just a spoiled 73-year-old. You can go fishing any time you like. Donna never says anything to you about overdoing it,” various people have told me. “It wasn’t always like that,” I counter. “When we first got married, she’d often ask ‘Are you going fishing again?’ Now when I’m in her way around the house, she asks ‘Why don’t you go fishing?’” During a recent week, however, things did not work out well for me. The weather was nearly perfect for late-summer fishing. There was a rainy day that raised stream levels slightly, and several...

    Kathy Mellott|Oct 5, 2023

    After months of scaremongering, fortification construction at vulnerable spots and enlisting volunteers to protect Morrisons Cove and Altoona from southern rebels, all eyes shifted east to Gettysburg and locals started breathing sighs of relief. A firsthand look at the drama playing out in Gettysburg and locally is found in journal entries posted by Morrisons Cove resident Henry C.

  • Best News Ever

    PASTOR LEE SEESE|Oct 5, 2023

    There was a play written about 500 years ago where the phrase was coined “bad news travels fast.” Indeed, there does seem to be an obsession with sharing news that is bad in a quick fashion. And there is no doubt that most of what we hear in the news today is bad, whether it’s in a printed newspaper, online, or on television or radio. People may not like bad news but they do seem to share it quickly. We all can wish that there was more good news in our world, but good news stories don’t sell. But if there was ever a case of good news traveli...

  • Thought for the Week

    Paster Earl Herr|Oct 5, 2023

    As I think on “things we lose,” I am not talking about car keys or the remote control but more important things. I am thinking about spiritual blessings. Things like “peace,” “contentment,” and a host of other things. In the hymn “What a Friend We Have in Jesus”, one line proposes, “O, what peace we often forfeit, O, what needless pain we bear”, and the reason given is, “All because we do not carry everything to God in prayer.” Scripture invites us to come apart from the world and rest/abide in...

    After being out of school seventeen years, I still think back to some of the delicious school lunches we had at Williamsburg – the turkey dinner, the hot roast beef sandwiches, and the piled high with cheese grilled cheese were always some of my favorites. A lot of great memories surrounded that food – spending time with my friends, talking about our day and just enjoying life. I was just having this conversation with a friend a few days ago about how I would sell my soul to have the school’s mashed potatoes one more time. Even though they...
