Good Luck… You’re Going to Need It



Richard Youtz of Hummel­stown knows he’s among a select few in Sun Country. He’s a Packers fan. And come Sunday, when his beloved Packers face the Pittsburgh Steelers in the Super Bowl, Youtz knows the local fan energy won’t be working in his favor.

‘The Chosen One’

Ed Goes to The Spa

When my boss sum­moned me to his office a few weeks ago and said he had an assignment for me, I had no idea. He said he wanted to send a member of the staff who he thought was the least likely to indulge in the services offered by The Spa at Hotel Hershey, and I was “the chosen one.” […]
