From Vietnam To Cocoa Avenue


For the past 21 years, former Marine Bob Christman has been wearing a different uniform for at least nine months a year – that of a school crossing guard, most recently at the corner of Cocoa and Elm avenues. “It’s what they call the ‘retirement post,’” 82-year-old Christman said with a grin, alluding to the previous guard at that post, […]

From Drama To Doctors


Penn State Health has announced that it will take over the space now occupied by the CocoaPlex Cinema, and the owner of the theater, Room One Corporation, has announced the movie house will close at the end of the year. Penn State Health already uses space in the CocoaPlex Center complex and its Fishburn family medicine center is next door […]

United We Stand

In the race to fill two seats on the Derry Township Board of Supervisors, it was hard to find one millimeter of distance between the two Republican candidates, Natalie Nutt and Carter Wyckoff.

I was ready for a small break to recharge the human batteries but was glad to get home to family, friends and the town that I love. Our local […]
