    “The newspaper does everything for us...comforts the afflicted, afflicts the comfortable.” Finley Peter Dunne (1867-1936) American journalist and humorist This is one of my all-time favorite quotes. Early in my career as a journalist, I was having a bad day. This very experienced newspaperman who was one of my first bosses asked me what I thought my job as a journalist was. After I gave him the typical journalism school answer, he recited Dunne’s quote to me, and it has stuck with me since I...

  • 125 Years Ago

    Oct 6, 2022

    Herald of October 14, 1897 The blank book factory issued their monthly ducats on Monday, and many were happy thereby. Such industries make a town. If correctly informed, our town has a monthly payroll of nine to ten-thousand dollars. This explains why no panic struck the village, an exception in the state of Pennsylvania. On the farm of James E. Arnold, in Bedford township, Bedford County, on Thursday September 16, the hottest day of the year, John E. Snavely cut, set up and tied 133 shocks of corn, taking eight rows in width and cutting a...

  • A Plot and Perfume

    PASTOR LEE SEESE|Oct 6, 2022

    The most difficult thing to hear in that news is that someone has been killed by another person. Most obituaries reflect people who died naturally, whether from old age or disease. But when someone takes the life of another it is a terrible thing indeed. Sadly, we hear sometimes of murder-suicides. There are also revenge killings or ones driven by hate. Years ago, I did a funeral for a 21-year-old that had been in my youth ministry. Her boyfriend took her life with their baby in the same room. Sometimes murders occur in the context of theft. Ra...

  • New COVID Vaccine Boosters Are Out

    Oct 6, 2022

    The new COVID-19 boosters are out from Moderna and Pfizer. Vaccines are reformed with booster doses of the mRNA vaccines and are "bivalent."

  • Do It Yourself: Self-Exams Can Help

    Oct 6, 2022

    Various organizations urge women to familiarize themselves with their breasts and conduct somewhat routine self-exams so they can uncover any lumps or other issues that may warrant further examination by a physician. Though self-exams can lead to discovery of breast cancer when the disease is most treatable, the World Health Organization notes that as many as 90 percent of breast masses are not cancerous. Non-cancerous abnormalities may be benign masses such as fibroadenoma and cysts or indicative of infection. It’s also important that women r...

  • Support Loved Ones Who Have Breast Cancer

    Oct 6, 2022

    Efforts to educate women about breast cancer have helped raise awareness of the disease and just how treatable it is when detected early. Despite that, a diagnosis can still be difficult for women and their families. When someone close to you is affected by breast cancer, priorities suddenly change and you may be wondering what you can do to provide the support needed to help this person navigate any ups and downs that could be on the horizon. A breast cancer diagnosis does not produce a uniform response. While one loved one may embrace others...

Also, breast cancer may occur at a younger age in women with family histories of the disease. Understanding breast cancer risk is vital for women’s h...

  • The Value of Activity-Driven Fundraisers

    Oct 6, 2022

    Fundraising is vital to the survival of many nonprofit organizations. Charity watchdog groups like Charity Navigator suggest nonprofits should aspire to spend less than 10 percent of their budgets on fundraising. That can be a tall task and underscores the need for charities to find creative, cost-effective ways to raise funds. Nonprofit organizations raise funds in various ways. Some organizations partner with local businesses and receive a portion of the proceeds participating establishments earn on certain days, while other organizations may...

  • Good Eats at the Red Bird Café

    NATALIE GORSUCH, Williamsburg Correspondent|Oct 6, 2022

    When someone's face lights up while talking about their career choice, they are clearly passionate about their path. This was the case when I sat down with Robert Johnson, a retired Army sergeant who fought in Desert Storm, and is currently the owner of one of Williamsburg's food trucks – the Red Bird Café. Johnson began working with food trucks 35 years ago. In 1987, Johnson, who was stationed in Fort Campbell, purchased his first food truck and began selling two festival must-haves: nachos an...

  • Small Game Season Coming Soon

    Oct 6, 2022

    Like some other outdoor writers, I'm unsure about how to approach writing a column about small-game hunting. Hunting for squirrels, rabbits, pheasants, and Pennsylvania's beleaguered grouse, which was a major outdoor activity for sportsmen when I was young, is only a minor type of hunting for present-day sportsmen, many who are locked in to putting their tags on whitetails. Squirrel season, which began on Sept. 10, has basically been ignored locally. I have not seen even one squirrel hunter on...
