Richard Haynes joined the Rohrersville Cornet Band when he was 15 years old and the trumpet player said the only music training he received was vocal lessons. Haynes perfected his horn on his own in the band. At 86 years old, Haynes is still playing in the band, an experience he values in daily life. Haynes said whenever he experienced problems in the past, he always found respite in music. “I felt I could come to the band hall and forget about it for a while,” Haynes said before the group performed its annual Christmas concert at the Rohrersville Band Hall on Main Street Sunday afternoon.

Ask most teens about "barbershop" and they'd probably tell you it's a place to get your hair cut. But for Travis Ware, it's a style of four-part harmoney that has a ton of musical possibilities. Ware, a 17-year-old senior at Williamsport High School, said barbershop is one of his favorties musical styles because "it's amazing the sound that you can produce. " But it's not the only kind of music he said he likes. As a member of Williamsport's "Sophisticats" for four years, he's learned show tunes and a whole lot more.

On Friday evening, the Playmakers, who are entering their 86th season, held a cabaret at the Barbara Ingram School for the Arts to raise money to help pay for a new home. “I need a stage, seats and a door to come in,” Playmakers President Lynn Litzinger-Rial said just before showtime.

I've been talking about having a massage for years, but haven't taken the time. You know how it is when you're busy - working full time, being a mom, keeping up with the laundry. It's hard for me to justify taking an hour for myself - just to relax. Finally, I had a legitimate excuse. It's for work: A story about massage. I could write it better if I had the experience, right? I put myself in the hands of Eugenia "Jeanie" Keller, a person I've known and trusted for a long time.

When you are as big as I am, there are only a couple of things that can help you get any bigger. And now, we're not talking about that case of Ding Dongs sitting in the trunk of my Sydan. This time, I'm talking about marketing. And that takes gimmicks. I don't have the hairpiece that that Trump guy has. Talk about a bob-and-weave job. I don't have a show like those NBC25 guys. What's the big deal about having a Fifth Quarter? I already have $1.25, and more, to my name.
