“Goosebumps” is based in a series of kids’ books from the mid-90s. The books were advertised as scary, but more than anything they were just weird. Most of them saw a monster du jour making life difficult for a bland teenage main character until they got really dangerous and had to be stopped. The idea for the movie had […]

Back to the Future In Conewago?

Past, present and future supervisors were in attendance at the Oct. 14 Conewago Township Supervisors’ meeting. It was a reminder of the abrupt changes of two of the three positions that occurred earlier this year. Those positions will be changing again after the Nov. 3 election. Inadvertently and timely to these changes, the board voted for new photo ID badges […]

From Where I Sit

Didn’t wear a hat and only had on a light vest as the north winds blew through the stadium. It didn’t stop the enthusiasm of the youngsters, who […]

Baby Cooper was featured as our Pet of the Week over the summer, along with his identical brother, Calvin and Connor. They’ve all found new homes, and now their mother is looking for hers.

Sun Rise

I love fall. I love the cool nights, warm days, football and falling leaves. But the one thing I hate about fall is the fading sunlight. Fortunately, you’ve been helping with that problem. Almost eight years ago, Debbie and I bought The Sun. In retrospect, it probably wasn’t the brightest idea. The recession was just beginning, and newspapers were already […]
