Charitable Deeds and Services was a dream of John Kerle's for so many years. In 2001, Charitable Deeds and Services was started by helping one person and has grown into what it is today. Without John's dream of helping God's children in their time of need, all of the work that we do today wo…

When I was in high school, my cousin and I would usually skip out after lunch on Fridays and spend the rest of the evening at the local video store, perusing a seemingly endless trove of eclectic entertainment and trying to satisfy our insatiable and ever-growing love for cinema.

Everyone likes cartoons whether you are a child or an adult. Cartoons are meant solely for entertainment purposes. I think cartoons have changed throughout the years. Therefore, I will provide cartoons from my era (1980s) as well as from current day. You can make your own determinations.

I would like to send a huge thank you to everyone who donated to the Keystone Coats for Kids eighth annual coat drive. If it were not for the generosity of the community, this project would not have continued helping children in need.

This is the second time I have received this email supposedly from PNC Bank. The first time I called about it. It was confirmed to be scam. This time I'm sharing. The alert does look official but be warned it is not.

Defenders of Old Joe said he ‘inadvertently misplaced' secret classified information, and Joe said some of it was safely stored in a cabinet beside his ‘68 Chevy Corvette in his garage in Wilmington, Delaware. That is understandable, both Bidens' --father and son --‘misplaced' some little tr…

There have been some encouraging things coming out of local school districts recently and the most encouraging thing to me came out of both the Clarion Area and Clarion-Limestone districts.

In honor of the commitment and time of the Allegheny-Clarion Valley School Board Directors who volunteer on behalf of our school district and communities, January is designated as School Director Recognition Month. The work of these public servants is vital to the success of our students and…

I've been reading Donald Duck as long as I can think. My place is packed with hundreds of Donald Duck paperbacks, ranging from the ones published every month to the special editions published only during Easter and Christmas.

What is the truth about the final results from the midterm elections? The radical left lying media claims the election was a GOP failure because there was no big red wave.

I was thinking the other day (I do that now and again) when the weather got bad with some freezing rain and the schools in the area closed but when I went to school many moons ago, buses -- if you rode them -- had chains on in bad weather and schools seldom closed.

Elon Musk may not have known what he was about to discover when he purchased Twitter. Thankfully, Musk may have unearthed the information that may lead to saving the Republic and cleaning up the epic train wreck created by Socialist Democrats.

I've never found out how my dad did it. When I was a child, the living room was locked every Dec. 24. It was locked because in there the Christkind (Christ Child) set up the tree with real candles and presents. Then, in the evening, after our traditional family Christmas fondue, the Christki…

Inflation is on everyone's mind. It affects all facets of life when you stop to get gas at the gas station, go into the grocery store to pick up some items for dinner, when you pay your electric bill, garbage, internet supplier and even your cell phone bill.

Getting past the bluster of President Trump and asking all Democrat operatives what so revolting about President Trump, they will tell you his attacking all the sacred cows the Democrat media holds dear, from the invasion of Iraq, to not venerating ex-POW John McCain.

I was looking at Matthew 25:31-46 again this Advent season. We're waiting; if we are Christian, we're waiting for Christmas, and if we're a child we're waiting for gifts, waiting to celebrate with family, waiting for the Messiah to come again. Yes, we're waiting.

The most common thing to see in modern American households is a rich blend of customs and traditions that come together to form a unique holiday celebration for every family. These traditions can come from religious and secular practices, and often family traditions are passed down through g…

Fifteen years ago, when I became the CLARION NEWS Sports Editor, I sure didn't think there would come a day where I would be taking over as the editor, but here we are.

Unless you have been comatose for a decade, you will notice the Chinese have moved into America, and they are buying up businesses, massive amounts of agricultural land, strategic tracts of land situated where they are monitoring and surveilling our every move in the hi-tech industry and mil…

In Matthew 10:36 Jesus told his disciples a man's foes shall be they of his own household. This was for good reason, because in verse 34 Jesus said: think not that I am come to send peace on earth; I come not to send peace, but a sword.

Dear Betty Griffith, I am grateful for your reply and your stance, as that is what democracy is all about, and wish more would be like you and speak out in the "CLARION NEWS" and other local media.

I seldom hear the expression "penny for your thoughts" today, but it has been around for hundreds of years. A penny may no longer be appreciated, but at one time, a penny was considerably more valuable, so it was quite a compliment to offer a penny to someone.

What do Pennsylvania and Arizona have in common? Both states had officials who were responsible for the counting of votes and also running for governor. Our state of course lost the governorship to Mr. Shapiro and Kari Lake lost to the former secretary of state in Arizona.

I was so depressed about the results of the recent election that I didn't eat chocolate for five days. Chocolate and life had lost their joy for me. I couldn't believe so many people, who are struggling to pay exorbitant prices for food, gasoline, rent and other essentials would vote for peo…

How do you say "thank you" to someone who has put their heart and soul into a job for 29 years? Do you give them a dinner and a plague and a gold watch and send them on their way?

This year we had a very different Thanksgiving meal. I grew up in a time when the world stopped for one day. On that day we would go to Grandma Johnson's house and gather for the big meal. It was always the same food; a stuffed turkey with cranberry sauce (that no one ate), green bean casser…

My high school was just four tram stops away from downtown Graz, where my dad worked. Occasionally we would meet for lunch at Strudelstube, a restaurant not far from his office on a small side street. This restaurant was special because it only served one dish: strudel. Hence its name Strude…

The dust has settled, the votes are counted, and where are we? The Socialist Democrats have pulled off another win, and America lost.

Praise God! I am so glad to see Matt Ochs back in print. (Nothing to be scared of, Nov. 10 CLARION NEWS letters)

Why do we have a secret ballot? I know who Sean Hannity is going to vote for in a presidential election. I know who Jake Tapper is going to vote for. I see signs in people's yards, saying who they will vote for.

Today, Nov. 10, is National Vanilla Cupcake Day. How exciting! Some people think that "vanilla" is synonymous with "boring," but National Vanilla Cupcake Day is dedicated to dispelling that myth.

I have a scary reality for Karen Baran that easily tops her scary story that she said can't be topped; except, I point out that mine is not a story. Before I start, she did get one thing right; hers is a story.

Who wouldn't want cheaper or cleaner electricity? On average, coal generated-electricity is three times more expensive than solar generated. One key solution is battery storage.

The man in the high castle does not fit in a democracy. The reason democracy worked, up until now, is not because of power. Not because of riches and not even because of religion.

As I was going through a treasure trove of items donated to the Clarion VFW Auxiliary by Joe Morgan, on behalf of Mary Elizabeth (Libby) Williams, I am finding so many things about which I had no knowledge. I am finding so many things about which I had no knowledge.

I was always intrigued by a woman's opinion in the CLARION NEWS about ancestry. I don't recall her exact wording, but it was something along the lines of "Don't get DNA tested, you might not like what you find."

The Knight Cruisers would like to thank all those who donated items, money and their time for the cure for cancer.

November is National Alzheimer's Disease Awareness Month and National Family Caregivers Month, offering an important reminder to support all Pennsylvania caregivers.

Being back home in Austria this summer was quite a different experience. While I'm used to my fellow citizens complaining about basically everything, their fear of a potential blackout infected me too. Not a day went by without the media covering our energy crisis and asking our minister of …
