Boy Scouts Troop One celebrates 100 years

One of Wayne County’s oldest traditions is celebrating 100 years of service—Troop One of the Boy Scouts of America.

The troop is perhaps the oldest scout organization, if not in America, at least in Pennsylvania and is the longest continually operating Boy Scout troop.

Chartered in 1911, just one year after the birth of the organization, Troop One lists as one of its alumni General Lyman Lemnitzer, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff from 1960 to 1962.  Read more

Old hippies never die…

They go Phishing. Well, this old hippie did anyway. Sort of. With so much talk about the band “Phish” (that I had never heard of) coming to town, I debated with myself over how to write about it. I knew little about the group itself ( www.phish.com ), but from what I gathered, this was to be no ordinary concert at the Bethel Woods Performing Arts Center ( www.bethelwoodscenter.org ). It was to be more of an “event,” since the group (and their faithful followers) would be in Sullivan County for three days.  Read more
