During the past few days, Progressland has experienced beautiful sunrises, flowers cropping up in the snow, Easter egg hunts on frozen ground and dicey travel on snow-covered roads. On Tuesday, once again, the snow overtook the area for one last blast. Could it be the "onion snow," which is said to be light snow that melts quickly? According to, the term onion snow is a regional term used primarily in the state of Pennsylvania. The term is said to originate from Pennsylvania Dutch culture and language. Let's hope this is the last snow we will see for a very long time. (Photos by Bill Woolworth and Anna Catherman)

BELLEFONTE - The Centre County Commissioners once again heard from a concerned citizen during the public comment portion of the meeting.
John Adams spoke, saying he is part of a protesters' group that is protesting in front of the Centre County Courthouse.
"We're not going anywhere," Adams said. "It's simple, we want an accountability of public officials and want to make sure they're doing their jobs."
He also voiced his displeasure over people being micromanaged. He said a friend is being ticketed for parking at her home. He said he would be taking that matter up with the Bellefonte mayor.
Vice chairman Commissioner Chris Exarchos asked Adams if it was true that some of the protestors are carrying weapons. more...

Harmony to OK new calendar with 5 snow days

WESTOVER - At its meeting next week, Harmony Area School Board plans to approve the 2015-16 school year calendar. Dr. Jill Dillon, said last night at the board's work session, next year's schedule includes five snow days and both the elementary and secondary grades more than meet the state's requirement for hours of instruction time at 990 hours for elementary and 900 for secondary.
Board member Don Hauser inquired about how many snow days students and staff had off in the current year and in the 2013-14 year. Dillon said there were 11 in the current year and she was unsure without looking up the number for the previous school year.
Hauser said it seemed to him as though more school days are called off every year because of weather, adding "Some days it didn't seem as though school should have been canceled." Dillon told the board on days when there is inclement weather or bad weather is predicted she rises at 4:30 a.m. and consults with both the state Department of Transportation and the district's bus contractors before determining whether there will be a school delay or cancellation. more...
