From surprise gifts exchanged by teenage sweethearts to a special dinner after a half-century of marriage, local couples said the form of their Valentine’s Day traditions has changed over the years, but, for many, the day’s importance has not waned. “We still mark the day, and even after 22 years (of marriage), it’s a good day to celebrate,” said Chris Hahne of Williamsport. She and her husband, Gary, plan to go out to eat with friends today. When they were newlyweds, Valentine’s Day was more about surprises, Chris Hahne said.

Should it be an extra-special day or should you be treated special every day? Two Pulse correspondents took their sides. A special holiday Should Valentine’s Day be a day that your significant other treats you especially well, or should you normally be treated special every day? Indeed, Valentine’s Day is when your “other half” treats you out to a nice day or perhaps a special evening, but should that behavior be encouraged for every day of the year?

Bob and Kathy Walters of Greencastle, Pa., plan to celebrate Valentine's Day by traveling to Hawaii. They also will be celebrating their one-year anniversary, and Kathy Walters, 62, described the trip, which will begin Friday, as “romantic” and a chance for them to show their love for each other. “We got married out there so it's a special place for us,” she said. The couple, who got married on Feb. 21, 2012, is heading for Kona, Hawaii, which Bob Walters, 67, said is “as close to paradise as you could get.” Not everyone is setting out for exotic places, but couples across the Tri-State area have a variety of plans for celebrating Valentine's Day, ranging from vacations to dinner and flowers.

For Danielle Hose, Aug. 4, 2010, was a memorable day. In a boat on a lake near Big Pool, the 22-year-old Williamsport native was fishing with Joseph Siler Jr., her boyfriend of about three years, something they had done many times before. But this time was different. Instead of hooking a largemouth bass or bluegill from the waters below, Siler, 23, reeled in his future wife. “I stood up (in the boat) to get something and he turned around in his seat with the ring box,” Hose said.

Rail trail in south end of Washington County a great idea To the editor: I heartily commend Tim Rowland and Marguerite Klein for their informed endorsement of the proposed Civil War Rail Trail. It seems to me especially significant that Ms. Klein is a resident of South County, and I hope that she speaks for the majority who live in that beautiful section of Washington County, since when the idea was floated two decades ago, some vocal residents voiced great opposition.

It's not just the millions of records he sold or the movies he made that rendered Elvis Presley immortal. His legend also lives on through the performances of tribute artists who try to capture the music icon's aura. Clad in leather jackets and jewel-studded jumpsuits, they curl their lips and shake a leg, wooing the faithful who show up at banquets, nightclubs and even churches to catch a glimpse of the faux King. It's almost as if Elvis has never left the building. If imitation is the highest form of flattery, then Mr. Presley must be very pleased.

Valentine's Day is celebrated each year on Feb. 14. This year it falls on a Thursday. Why is this holiday scheduled in the heart of winter? Is it intended to give students and teachers a little break in the midst of hum-drum days? A room full of sweet treats and greetings from friends is a sure way to accomplish that. Or is this holiday designed to provide an opportunity for those young and in love to express heartfelt sentiments? There's certainly a lot of that going on, but young couples probably would find a way to share their feelings in a tangible way regardless of the holiday.
