  • Fouled Out

    MARSHALL WALLY RITCHEY, For the Herald|Jan 20, 2022

    This is not for the birds (fowl). This is for you. This is about basketball, High School basketball. This happened in the 20th Century, in a farming community, in Bedford County, Pennsylvania. Back in the 1950s five small school districts got together to make the Northern Bedford County School District. They even built a brand new high school building to bring us all together. Well, education was important, but making friends and socializing was a big part of going to school back then, perhaps even now. Then in seventh grade they added that...

  • Support For Independent Meat Processors Will Have Far-Reaching Benefits

    JOHNATHAN HLADIK, Center for Rural Affairs|Jan 20, 2022

    If you recently bought meat from a local farmer, you are not alone. Over the past 22 months, millions of Americans quit overpaying at the grocery store and began buying food grown closer to home. This is good news for local livestock producers and the independent meat lockers they partner with. While a bright spot during difficult times, this sudden increase in demand has brought its own set of challenges. Independent processors needed to scale up, and fast. This laid bare capacity shortages that have drawn the attention of state and federal...

  • Old Cove Gyms Still Revered

    JAMES WENTZ, For the Herald|Jan 20, 2022

    Late last year Don Appleman of Williamsburg sprang into action when it was determined by his local school board that the “old high school gym” would be reconfigured to serve as a dining facility and to accommodate other school functions. He offered to buy the two basketball hoops that hang in the gym and have them moved and preserved in some other venue in the community, perhaps the town counsel’s building. Appleman has an acute appreciation for history and doesn’t want the memory of so many athletic achievements made in that gym, and thru thos...

    Herald of Jan. 21, 1897 It was reported that the notorious Rutter brothers, who terrorized the law oficers at Ligonier, Westmoreland county a few days ago, found a hiding place on Tussey mountain in Catherine township near the home of a married sister.

Bruce Hutchinson, a well known merchant from Kipple, of hiring four men to set fire to his business rival, Pheasant and Wagner....

  • Giving Our Best to the Lord

    Linda Weko|Jan 20, 2022

    We live busy lives. Our culture practically demands that our daily hours get filled to the brim with activities and events. It has become almost a badge of honor to brag about how much is on you day planner or on your monthly calendar. But maybe we delude ourselves with these schedules. Jesus spent the days of His life showing us how to live and also dying for each one of us. So, should we spend our lives giving Him just our left overs of time and of ourselves? The Bible is God’s Living Word. I...

  • Thought for the Week

    Pastor Earl Herr|Jan 20, 2022

    In a recent Bible Study, someone proposed we should “hate the sin but love the sinner.” I don’t know that this is actually a simple statement from Scripture but I do think it is a concept drawn from compilations of Scriptural teaching. Practicing to live this way is a real challenge. It is reasonable to hate sin. Sin is the root cause of everything bad. The end result of sin is death. Sin opposes God. God is all things good. Satan is the author of sin. Man is not sin’s author but mankind...

    Jan 20, 2022

    NATALIE GORSUCH, Williamsburg Correspondent|Jan 20, 2022

    Currently, as I sit here in my office with my two cats, Oliver and Pudder Renee, I can see the snow falling beautifully outside. I know that most are not a fan of the winter weather, but I enjoy one nice, big snowstorm to sit at my house and enjoy. This inspired this week’s question – what is your favorite snow day activity?
