  • Newcomers to the Cove: Christmas at Grandpap's Farm

    JOSEPH WALK, For the Herald|Dec 22, 2022

    When I was growing up, at Christmas our family would travel to Grandpap’s farm along Bloomfield Road. This soirée was always the Sunday before Christmas Day. It seemed to me that in addition to celebrating the Nativity, another purpose was a family reunion. It was a time to catch up. Aunts and uncles reminisced. The winter of 1936 was a common topic of discussion. Why was it always colder and snowier in the “good old days?” It was a one-hour drive, as I-99 didn’t exist, so this was the one Sunday we skipped church to arrive on time....

    Dec 22, 2022

In my introduction to this series, I said that the journey I wanted us to look at was not: "The journey of Joseph and Mary from Nazareth to Bethlehem, nor the journey of the shepherds from their fields to the manger. It is not the journey of the...

  • All In A Necklace

    NATALIE GORSUCH, Williamsburg Correspondent|Dec 22, 2022

    For many years, the question always arises – what was your favorite holiday memory or your favorite gift? For me, I always have the same answer. It is my honor to share this wonderful memory with all you readers this holiday season. Back in 1997 when the famous Titanic movie came to theaters, one of the hottest ticket items was that infamous necklace that Rose donned in the movie. When Avon was popular, my mom would bring the Avon book home after work and ask if there was anything I’d like in it. Christmas of 1998, I was adamant. There was...

    Dec 22, 2022

    Today (Dec. 22, 2022) is my 73rd birthday. If you believe what "The Bible" says - a lifespan is three score and ten years - I am beginning the fourth bonus year of my life. I guess I can attribute my reaching 73 to several things: good luck, trying to remain active, and the miracles of modern medicines. There are both bad and good things about being 73. The worst is being unable to do many things I was able to do when I was younger. Some of this, of course, involves health issues. On a...
