“Paddington”



            It was inevitable that “American Sniper” would continue to rule the box office this past weekend, so the interesting battle was for second place. I was reasonably sure that it would go to a new release, like the annoyingly-delayed time travel escapade “Project Almanac” or the Kevin Costner heartstring-puller “Black or White.” But in what I would call a […]

‘I Shot Him Two Times’

H’town Cop Kills Man

It started with a traffic stop, one of the most mundane duties a police officer can perform. But what happened over the next 10 minutes after the officer illuminated her lights would be far from mundane, far from routine. It was about 4 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 2, and Hummelstown police officer Lisa Mearkle attempted to pull over 59-yearold David […]

Slid, Skied, Cared

Downtown Hummelstown

Dozens of residents braved the snow in Hummelstown on Jan. 29 to attend a meeting about the future of the borough’s downtown. “Whether you slid here or skied here, however you got here, (we) certainly appreciate it,” Borough Manager Mike O’Keefe said.

After having the flu for a few days, I finally got up today to look outside to access the snow situation, especially since we’re to […]

Sign It



Conservatives pride themselves on their rugged independence. On their ability to fend for themselves. That’s why conservatives, like me, hunt. And fish. Prep for disasters. And bear arms. They start businesses, build homes and educate their own children. They believe that we – not the state, not our society – are ultimately responsible for our security and our prosperity. But […]

From Where I Sit



Attended the services for old friend and our former family doctor Robert L. Bauer this past Saturday, Jan. 31, at the DiMattteo Worship Center, Lebanon Valley Brethren Home, Palmyra, where Bob and his late wife, Jane, spent their final years. It brought back memories from the period shortly after Rosemary and I purchased the then Hummelstown Sun on June 1, […]
