  • House Bill 1300 Would Not Deprive Hunters

    SEN. JUDY WARD|Nov 2, 2023

    Many times, good governing and fiscal responsibility require balancing a multitude of interests and priorities. When the Senate voted on House Bill 1300, our proposal for this current budget’s Fiscal Code, I believed that bill did that prudently and responsibly. As the debate continues on how to best allocate all of the state’s resources, I will continue to prioritize programs to ensure the solvency of the Pennsylvania Game Commission (PGC) and the success of outdoor recreation and sportsmen activities. Like all budgets and the cor...

  • Books to Borrow Williamsburg Public Library Recommends

    Nov 2, 2023

    When author Tory Anderson was obtaining degrees in liberal arts or working in the high tech industry, he never dreamed he’d one day pilot a yellow school bus, taking kids from home life to school life and back again. The aspiring writer looked on this opportunity as an adventure. Have you ever thought about the behind-the-scenes aspects of driving a school bus? It must take high levels of concentration, watching traffic, kids, and listening through the commotion. The bus driver holds the safety of our children in their hands for a few m...

  • Crucial Signs Your Child May be Being Bullied

    Nov 2, 2023

    Most parents are familiar with bullying and have seen the harmful role it can play in the lives of children. While we know what it is, we may not always know the signs to look for to identify it. We are also not usually sure what to do about it if we spot the warning signs. One organization, Stand for the Silent, is on a mission to change that and help end the bullying problem in our schools nationwide. “We know firsthand how devastating bullying can be and the damage it can lead to,” says Kirk Smalley, co-founder of Stand for the Silent. “We...

Some years ago the disease entered the village and carried off 50 children with a total of 240 cases. All houses where it exists should be strictly quarantined.

  • Trunk or Treat Thoughts

    PASTOR LEE SEESE|Nov 2, 2023

    Like most Christans, I am glad to see Halloween is over. We recognize it as a dark and troubling day on the calendar. There is no denying how popular it has become. Not only are candy sales huge but so are the morbid house decorations and graphic costumes that adults, children, and even pets wear. For over 20 years, our church has sought to redeem Halloween to some extent by offering trunk or treat to children and their families. A gospel tract or literature is always included. Since it began, many other organizations have done it as well and...

  • Thought for the Week

    Paster Earl Herr|Nov 2, 2023

    Inspiration for this ‘Thought’ comes from John Glick. Lots of things look good just as they are. But in order to be useful, some things must be crushed or broken. Many of those things are food items. We sometimes purchase “whole grain cereal.” But, it is not really whole grain. The grain has been ground into flour and then further processed in order to create the cereal. You would be disappointed if you opened the box and found whole-kernel-grains of wheat, rice, oats, or corn. Of course...

  • Ask the Williamsburgers

    NATALIE GORSUCH, Williamsburg Correspondent|Nov 2, 2023

    It’s November, home to my favorite holiday: Thanksgiving. Any excuse to cook a big meal, enjoy some great shopping, and watch football is a perfect day for me. As usual with this time of year, I like to know what is on the readers’ Thanksgiving tables — and maybe get some ideas for my family’s. So what is your favorite Thanksgiving side dish?

  • From the 'Burg to Your Kitchen

    NATALIE GORSUCH, Williamsburg Correspondent|Nov 2, 2023

    As with most holidays, the best memories seem to always come out. For my family, the best (and funniest) memories seem to happen around the table or eating. Many years ago, we were always invited to my Aunt Rita’s Thanksgiving dinner out at different church halls each Thanksgiving, and it’s always something that we all looked forward to. During that dinner, we always loved Aunt Rita’s dad’s Edwin Gunnett’s stuffing balls, and although Edwin is no longer with us, I will always associate stuffing balls with Edwin, and smile at those memories....

  • Apple Butter Day: Long Process Worth the Treat

    KATHY MELLOTT|Nov 2, 2023

    The fragrance of wood smoke hits about a quarter mile from the destination: my sister Janet Ronk’s home. Pulling in the drive brings the deep rich fragrance of cider and apples cooking at a simmer. Summer is over and the apples are hanging in heavy clusters. The snap of cold lets all know it’s time to drag out the copper kettle and build a fire. It’s the first time in 17 years the Ronks have made apple butter and I made the short list, an invitation to spend the day. A latecomer to the apple butter boil party, I missed the days of preparation,...

  • Eating Crow

    RICHARD TATE|Nov 2, 2023

    Last week I related how my son, Bob, and our friend “Scout” tagged turkeys on last autumn’s opening Saturday. I, on the other hand, had to try to do as much hunting during the one-week season as I could if I were not to “eat crow” for Thanksgiving. Monday found me back at the location where Bob and Scout had downed their birds. There was no activity. Just about the time I had decided to start to cover some ground, it began to rain. I hustled out of the woods and was home by 9:00, drying my soaked clothes -- and the new shotgun Bob had bought fo...

    BRADY ALBRIGHT, Student Correspondent|Nov 2, 2023

    In a battle of the unbeaten teams, the Central Dragons squared off against the Richland Rams for what was meant to be a battle of epic proportions.

    Nov 2, 2023

    If you think you're seeing more mustaches lingering over mens' upper lips as November unfolds, chances are your eyes are not deceiving you.
