Bones Bring Closure


It’s been nearly 80 years since the USS Oklahoma capsized on the banks of Pearl Harbor, taking with it 429 Marines and sailors who perished in the waves below. Of those who died, just 35 were identified. The other 394 remained nameless to families and the public for decades, buried in graves marked “Unknown” at the National Military Cemetery in […]

Sun’s Ponessa Signs Off


With 33 years of experience in the newspaper business, Ed Ponessa is retiring as copy editor at the Sun to pursue other interests. He’s set his sights on greener pastures, namely the Sunset Golf Course in Londonderry Township. He’s held positions at both for over 15 years, and will start working full-time at the golf course on Easter Sunday, April […]

Letters to the Editor

Last week’s letter writer revealed his preference for ear buds, then lamented his inability to detect approaching cyclists.

I heard on the national news last week that it would be very unlikely to contract the virus once vaccinated. I understand that some of the answers are not available because […]

From Where I Sit


Attended the memorial service for Keith Oellig on Monday evening, March 15, in the Lower Dauphin High School auditorium. This may have seemed an unusual place to hold a memorial service, but in Keith’s case, not at all. Reason? A great deal of Keith’s life was connected to Lower Dauphin, right up to the present. He attended Lower Dauphin, but […]

Notes From The Pen


Why does it seem like when we’re counting down to a specific date, time begins to drag and otherwise unimportant events suddenly appear remarkable? March 2 was marked and highlighted on my calendar for three weeks as I awaited my second dose of the Pfizer vaccine. In this short time frame, I witnessed my entire housing unit go on a […]
