Rev. Christopher Raiford accepted the symbolic towel of the doulos in his installation ceremony November 17, at St. Andrew Evangelical Lutheran Church, Muncy. The installation sermon, “Taking up the towel,� was based on Mark 10:42-45 in which Jesus washes the feet of his disciples. Officiating the installation was Rev. Perry J. Fruhling, Coordinator of Pastoral Ministry for Lutheran Congregations in Mission for Christ (LCMC). He observed that the strength of a pastor is based on serving the needs of the people, just as Jesus assumed the role of the doulos, or servant, in caring for his apostles. Unlike the rulers of the day, Rev. Fruhling counseled, the true power of Christianity comes from being on bended knees. Rev. Raiford comes to St. Andrew Lutheran, Muncy, from Houston, TX, where he managed senior living facilities. In June, he looked into the LCMC website, saw the posting for St. Andrew Lutheran in Muncy, and knew that was his intended church. Before Rev. Raiford and his wife Wendi set out for his final

Maestro Albert J. Nacinovich, presently the head director of The Repasz Band, recently announced his upcoming retirement, which will become effective at the conclusion of The Repasz Band’s Winter Holiday Concert this December 10. This will mark the summation and conclusion of a 47year total tenure wielding the Repasz Band baton, the longest such reign in the band’s 188-year history.

This represents just short of 3000 rehearsals, annual concerts, summer concerts, parades, and special events, all of which have been meticulously prepared, and as smoothly and excellently executed as the skills of the membership and circumstance allowed.

ducting strategies and practices, and incorporating standards of excellence second to none in the musical world. Several of these occasions were of great historical moment to the Repasz Band. First was a celebratory concert performed in honor and celebration of the Repasz Band’s 150th Anniversary in 1981. This concert took place on the lawn of The White House in Washington, D.C. In 1997, the Repasz Band performed at the centennial re-dedication of Ulysses S. Grant’s tomb in New York City. The Repasz Band had performed at the original dedication in 1897. In 2015, the band played at the 150th anniversary ceremonies marking the surrender of General Robert E. Lee to General U. S. Grant at the McClean house in Appomattox Court House, Virginia. Again, the Repasz Band had played at the original event in 1865. All these events took place under the musical leadership of Mr. Nacinovich, along with Associate Director Jeffrey Dent at Appomattox. Also during Nacinovich’s tenure, the Band earned the John Philip Sousa Foundation’s Sudler Silver Scroll Historic Community Band Award in 2003 for excellence in musicianship and its historic importance and impact with respect to the present day community band effort. The Band was also honored to be selected as the premier performing community band for the 2017 Annual Conference of the Pennsylvania Music Educators Association on April 20, 2017 in Erie, Pennsylvania. Finally, on

Albert Nacinovich

August 1, 2017, at Brandon Park in Williamsport, the band played on under Nacinovich’s baton as the Band’s own permanent historical marker was unveiled and dedicated as a part of the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission’s Historical Marker Program. To say that the Repasz Band owes Mr. Nacinovich an almost inconceivable debt of gratitude is a total understatement. Perhaps what might sum up the glorious career of one of Williamsport’s own stellar musicians and music educators would be this extract from a 1997 Repasz Band concert program during which Albert J. Nacinovich was being celebrated for a mere 25 years at the helm of the band: “The story is told of the “pearl of great price,” a gem beyond rarity and value, exceptional in every respect, and the man who, upon discovering it and realizing the magnitude of its worth, goes and sacrifices all he has to obtain and keep the precious stone. In the person of Albert J. Nacinovich, we are honored to have both the pearl and the man as our Director. He is the gem of great brilliance and

richness beyond value. In his great range and depth of musical experience, his above-and-beyond reproach professionalism and musicianship, his vast knowledge and ability in the Bandsman’s Art, his self-effacing humility, and lustrous common decency on stage and off, Albert is a rare find indeed. He is also the man in the story who, upon discovering a diamond in the rough in our Band, has sacrificed hours, weeks, and years of endless labor, meticulous preparation, and precise

and well-planned practice and rehearsal to bring the Band to grand and glorious new heights of performance and enjoyment in the human vitality that is music.

Submitted by Tracie Witter, Regional Affairs Director, PPL Electric Utilities Think of December holiday season and you’re likely to think of something shining brightly often, it’s something powered by electricity.

Decorating with Energy Efficient Holiday Lights

Using more electricity is a natural part of the holiday season. Family and friends come to stay, and we cook for them. The weather gets cold, so we turn up the heat. We decorate our homes with festive lights. As you prepare your

holiday lighting display, keep some of these efficient holiday decorating tips in mind to help save energy and money. Buy LED Lights Those old incandescent holiday lights you have been putting up forever are terribly inefficient, and

despite careful storage, often emerge only halfway lit with many being tossed in landfills. Instead, save money by replacing them with ENERGY STAR® qualified LED light strands. To qualify for the ENERGY STAR rating, LED products must use 75

percent less energy than incandescent bulbs. LEDs are also brighter and ecofriendly. They’re also safer because as they burn are much cooler than incandescent lights. They last 10 times longer, have no filaments or glass to break, and costs are similar. If you Tracie Witter prefer white lights with the look of incandescent lights, look for “warm” white on the label. Limit Hourly Usage Use timers for lights to automatically turn on and off at the times you prefer. You can save by keeping light displays on only in the evening when you can see them. If you are still using traditional incandescent bulbs, this tip is even more important to cut down on energy costs. Creative and Reflective Decorating Not everything is about strands of lights. For maximum effect with the smallest amount of energy use, try distributing the lighting across a broader space. In the space between lights, add reflective ornaments and tinsel. Safety In the commotion of the holiday, don’t forget safety. Don’t plug too many things into outlets and power strips, throw out extension cords that are damaged or have frayed wires and don’t run cords in places where people can trip over them. It’s also important to be aware of your surroundings when decorating. For outside decorating, always remember to be aware of any overhead lines running to your home. Practice good ladder safety and stay at least 10 feet away from those lines.

Wearing a full-body harness is essential to staying safe when using a tree stand, but a harness can prevent falls to the ground only if it is connected to the tree. “That means you must wear your harness, and be sure it’s connected to the tree, at all times you’re in the stand, as well as when you’re getting into and out of the stand, or climbing or descending trees,” explained Meagan Thorpe, Game Commission hunter-education chief. A hunter using a

Hunt Safely From Tree Stands – Wear a Harness

climbing stand should tiein the safety rope or strap that pairs with the harness before beginning to climb. Most safety ropes and straps have a sewn or knotted loop on one end, and the opposite end can be wrapped around the tree and through the loop, then cinched tightly. There’s often a separate loop, many times a carabiner loop held by a prussic knot, onto which to clip your safety harness. Consult the manufacturer’s instructions to ensure proper installation.

Smith’s Tree Service

You’ll want to move the safety rope or strap up the tree first, then tighten it, each time before moving the platform up the tree. If the rope is at or slightly above eye-level as you

stand on the platform, you should have plenty of room to raise the platform to a higher standing position before moving the rope up the tree again before climbing.

A valid tag must be affixed to the ear of each deer harvested before that deer is moved. The tag must be filled out with a ball-point pen by the hunter. Within 10 days of a harvest, a successful hunter is required to make a report to the Game Commission. Harvests can be reported online at the Game Commission’s website – www.pgc.pa.gov – by clicking on the “Report a Harvest” button on the home page. Reporting online not only is the quickest way to report a harvest, it’s the most costeffective for the Game Commission. Harvests also can be reported by mailing in the postage-paid cards that are provided when licenses are purchased, or successful

hunters can call 1-855PAHUNT1 (1-855-7248681) to report by phone. Those reporting by phone are asked to have their license number and other information about the harvest ready at the time they call. Mentored youth hunters are required to report deer harvests within five days. And hunters with DMAP permits must report on their hunting success, regardless of whether they harvest deer. By reporting their deer harvests, hunters play a key role in providing information used to estimate harvests and the deer population within each WMU. Estimates are key to managing deer populations, and hunters are asked to do their part in this important process.

If you take a big buck, or a special buck, or your first buck, the Game Commission would like to hear from you. Send us a photo of you with your Pennsylvania 2019 archery or firearms season buck, along with some limited background: your name, age and hometown, harvest date, county in which buck was taken. Photos will be accepted through Dec. 20. They must be emailed to pgc-contest@pa.gov. Use “BUCK HARVEST” in the

subject line. Game Commission staff will narrow the submitted photos in each contest into groups of contenders to be posted on the agency’s Facebook page, where users will determine the winning photos by “liking” the images. Those submitting the images of the winning archery and firearms bucks will win trail cameras. For more information about the contest and prizes, visit the Game Commission’s website.

“Make sure you have proper contact with the stand and tree every time you move,” emphasized Thorpe. It takes only a little longer to climb with a rope, and if the stand fails due to breakage or a pin pulling out of the climbing band, or if a fall occurs because slippage or loss of balance, the harness and rope will prevent falling to the ground. With pre-installed hangon stands – and especially ladder stands – the mostpractical way to stay connected to the tree is through a safety line, commonly referred to by the brand name Lifeline, that hangs to the ground from above the platform. Because the safety line is installed above the platform, the tree must be climbed first, but other safety ropes or straps can be used along with your harness. When installing a

safety line at a hang-on stand, a linemen’s style belt can be worn while ascending the tree. A linemen’s belt might not be an option for many ladder stands, but a separate ladder and linemen’s belt could be used to install the safety line before the ladder stand is installed. When using a ladder stand, climbing stick or tree steps, make sure to maintain three points of contact (two hands and one foot, or two feet and one hand) with each step. The important points are to always take your time and be safe when using stands. Always put on your safety harness while you’re still on the ground, and keep it connected to the tree at all times until you’re back on the ground.

By choosing local and independent businesses for your services, shopping, dining and other needs, you not only enjoy a more distinctive and personal experience, you’re helping to build a community. The casual encounters you enjoy at neighborhood– scale businesses and the public spaces around them build relationships and community cohesiveness. Each dollar you spend at independent businesses

returns 3 times more money to your local economy than one dollar spent at a chain store and almost 50 times more than buying from an online mega-retailer, a benefit everyone in that community can bank on. Locals are more efficient with land use and more central locations mean local businesses put less demand on the roads, sewers, and safety services. They also generate more

tax revenue per sales dollar. The bottom line: a greater percentage of local independent businesses keeps taxes lower. Surveys show independent businesses beating their chain competitors in overall customer satisfaction (and often save you money). A wide variety of independent businesses, each serving their customers’ tastes, creates greater overall choice for all. The multiplier effect created by

spending locally generates lasting impact on the prosperity of local organizations and residents. Not only do independent businesses employ more people directly per dollar of revenue, they also are the customers of local printers, accountants, wholesalers, farms, attorneys, etc., expanding opportunities for local entrepreneurs. Small businesses donate more than twice as much per sales

dollar to local non-profits, events, and teams compared to big businesses. Local ownership of business means residents with roots in the community are involved in key development decisions that

Owning a business is a lot of work, especially for new business owners trying to get their businesses off the ground. Small businesses benefit communities

by boosting the local economy. Local businesses face an uphill battle to survive, but there are many things residents can do to support these valuable addi-

tions to their communities. Shopping locally not only supports local businesses, but it also contributes to the local economy. Shopping locally keeps money in the community, which can benefit everyone. Shopping locally produces a trickle-down effect, as local businesses that are thriving may patronize other local businesses, and so on. This, in turn, helps grow other businesses in the community, making it a nicer place to live and work. Word-of-mouth advertising is effective. A respected member of the community who shares a good experience with a local business may propel others to patronize the business. Speak up when you feel a business owner has provided an exceptional level of service. Recommend a company to friends and neighbors. When others see a business doing well, they may be more inclined to shop there as well. Another way to support a local business is to work

for one. Small local businesses employ millions of people across the country, and many foster great working environments. In addition, small businesses are known for their customer service, and employees often become experts in their products and services because of the hands-on experience they gain while working for small businesses. Supporting and celebrating local businesses can instill a sense of community pride and benefit the local economy in a myriad of ways. Content provided by Metro Creative Connections.

That can buy a lot of holiday presents including for yourself and help you have the time to go shop for them. 2. Focus on your favorites. Outsource the rest. If, say, you love roast turkey, baste that bird all you like but don’t devote a lot of time to the sides. Put the potato peeler down and pick up refrigerated Main St. Bistro Signature Mashed Potatoes at your local grocery store. Or for a sweet twist, dig into some Baked Mashed Sweet Potatoes with sweet potatoes, real butter, brown sugar and candied pecans.

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, sweet potatoes are higher in beta-carotene than many other vegetables and are a source of potassium, fiber, and vitamins A and C. Whether you like your spuds sweet or savory, both are great when hosting holiday dinners or enjoying family meals. 3. Plan a potluck party. Invite the neighbors for dinner and have each family bring a different dish. For easy and popular additions. 4. Put a bow on the party. For more fun, make it a gift wrapping party, too. You simply supply the scissors and tape and everyone brings a different roll of holiday wrapping paper so you can all mix and match, swap and share.

It’s that time of year again to find the perfect gift for the person who has everything or a last minute stocking stuffer. And what do you buy for your employees or clients who you have to impress year after year? The American Cancer Society offers a solution for the bewildered holiday shopper with its 2020 Golf Pass.

Christmas Tree,” Edison strung incandescent bulbs all around the compound of his Menlo Park, NJ, laboratory. Edison constructed an eight-mile underground wiring system in order to power this grand light display. Because the laboratory was situated along the railroad that passed between Manhattan and Philadelphia, thousands of people were able to see the display. The concept of electric holiday lights took a bit of time to catch on. Edison’s friend and associate Edward Johnson was tasked with stringing together colored lights in 1882 and placing them on an evergreen tree. Johnson hand-wired 80 red, white and blue light bulbs. In 1895, President Grover Cleveland requested the White House family Christmas tree be illuminated by multi-colored electric light bulbs. In 1903, when General Electric began to offer preassembled kits of holiday lights, stringed lights were reserved for the wealthy and electrically savvy. For example, in 1903 a single string of electric lights cost $12, or around $300 today. It would take several more years before holiday lights became a national tradition. On Christmas Eve 1923, President Calvin Coolidge began the country’s celebration of Christmas by lighting the National Christmas Tree on the Ellipse located south of the White House with 3,000 electric lights. Today, illuminated
