Buying secluded cabin in Maine leads to treasure hunt and duct tape heaven

If you've ever seen the "Red Green Show," then you will have a true understanding of my story.

If you're not familiar with Red Green, you've probably heard of the TV show "Hoarders." If neither show is familiar to you, just look up the lyrics to Arlo Guthrie's "Alice's Restaurant" and pay particular attention to his descriptions of the garbage.

That's kind of how it was when my husband and I bought a cabin in Maine.

Gov. William Scranton Jr.: Passing of another Pennsylvania legend

Thursday, August 22, 2013 by The Press in Opinion

Within the last couple of weeks, another former governor of Pennsylvania – Gov. William Scranton Jr. – passed away, marking the second such occurrence in the past few months.

The loss of loved ones is traumatic for remaining family members to whom I offer my deepest and sincere sympathy for their loss.

They, as well as all residents of this commonwealth, should know a greatly engaged Pennsylvanian has completed a lifetime of work and service to his community, this commonwealth, our country and the world.
