If Scott Bragunier has his way, cannon tubes that sat for more than a century on Doubleday Hill, a spot in Riverview Cemetery named for Union Gen. Abner Doubleday, will be returned to the same spot by spring. The cannon tubes - the barrels of a cannon - were procured for the town in 1896 to honor local men who fought and died in the Civil War. They were dedicated on Doubleday Hill on July 4, 1897, said Bragunier, a Williamsport native and local firefighter who has spent a lot of time studying local Civil War history.

Yes, you might have termites. This is not good news for a home-owner. Anyone can get termites in their yard if there are wood products and moisture. There are things you can do that will help you reduce your risk of getting termites in your home. Termites are like any creature - they want food, water and shelter.
