Of all the surefire blockbusters of 2016, “Trolls” was probably the one I was dreading the most. If you’re a parent whose kids are this film’s target audience, you’ve probably been dreading it too. This is a film designed to revive an annoyingly cute toy line that we all thought we had left in the past. And the early […]

Tattoos at The bridge Ink’d With God

The scripture reading at The Bridge Church on Sunday, Nov. 13, was from Genesis 1:26-27: “Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness … male and female he created them.” Projected on a screen behind Pastor Justin Douglas was a poster with the image of person whose bare arm and fingers had been ink’d with […]

But Where is Jason?


Family Still concerned The body discovered this spring in Lordsburg, New Mexico, does not appear to be that of 45-year-old Jason Shandor, formerly of Hershey.

And the letter below came from a group of Milton Hershey School grads … Dear Milton Hershey Students, We wanted to let you know we are thinking about […]
