Summer is Beautiful at the Pennsylvania Grand Canyon
Summer is Beautiful at the Pennsylvania Grand Canyon

| 08/04/2017

Pennsylvania’s Grand Canyon, a 47-mile long gorge is a great place to beat the summer heat.  Hiking, biking, kayaking, canoeing, or relaxing are just a few of the activities you can experience. Take a guided horse-drawn covered wagon ride through the gorge where you can watch wildlife and hear about the history of the gorge.  Padded seats and rubber tires make your ride a comfortable one.  A scenic, climate-controlled train excursion is always a nice way to relax in comfort.  Add a meal, and the dinner train is a great option. Our lakes offer great ways to cool down with water sports like swimming, fishing, or boating.  Or vis... Read More...

Homeschooling on a Shoestring
Homeschooling on a Shoestring

By Tracy Klicka MacKillop | 08/04/2017

Purchasing homeschooling curriculum for your children can be similar to buying a car for your family. Where I live you can spend about $50,000 for a 2014 luxury Lexus SUV, $30,000 for a new Grand Jeep Cherokee, or if you’re like my family with several children, you can buy a well used but reliable seven-passenger van for about $10,000. If you have limited finances, however, coming up with even $4,000 for a much older, higher miles vehicle may be more expensive than you can muster. Read More...

A Civilian’s Challenge to Veteran and Active Duty Military

By Sharon Danitschek | 08/04/2017

Sitting around the banquet table in 2012, a veteran told me the story of his son-in-law. It seems he had a bit of trouble adjusting to civilian life. A call from his daughter described a frustrated man who had become distant and withdrawn. It was not the man she married. “Dad, would you talk to him.” Over a beer, her father shared stories and his experiences during his military life. Until this discussion many had been held secret for many years. They shared tales of combat, chow, and what it was like to miss home. Although 20 years separated their time served, the stories were close to identical. As the evening wore on, they both felt bette... Read More...
