Deli in Williamsport Busy With Easter Shoppers

Many stores were packed today with shoppers buying last-minute Easter goodies. People are getting ready to spend the holiday with loved ones, and of course indulge on all the foods they’ve given up for Lent.

The parking lot was packed at Tony’s Deli in Williamsport, and inside the store on Washington Boulevard, the cash register did not stop ringing all day!

It’s a big day for last-minute Easter shoppers, and Tony’s Deli was prepared for the rush. Owner Carl Diparlo says he brought in more than two dozen employees to prepare for the busy Easter weekend. The store has orders for 400 hams.

“We sell a lot of smoked hams. We make them in a lot of different varieties. We make fresh kielbasa, smoked kielbasa, and with the weather being nice like this they’ll buy steaks,” Diparlo said.

Lancers Baseball is Back!

Last year, Loyalsock found the holes and found a way to win the AA championship. Much is the same again this year, with a talented team returning the only difference is the Lancers have a bullseye on their back.

“Just keeping guys focused and not letting anyone get complacent. We know we have here at Loyalsock.  The talent that we have and what we return from last year’s state championship team,” said head coach Jeremy Eck.

The ‘Sock in the Lancer line-up starts with Jimmy Webb, who is verbally committed to Wake Forest. It then rolls into the three hole where North Carolina recruit and ‘Sock shortstop Kyle Datres bats. Finally, hard throwing right hander Luke Glavine gets a turn in the 8 hole. Duke is his next stop, and bunched in there with guys like Phil Krizan, Tommy Baggett, Ben Sosa, Bailey Young, and Evan Moore… Enough to handle for any opposing pitcher.

H.S. Chorus Group to Perform at Statue of Liberty

HUGHESVILLE — A high school chorus group in Lycoming County has more than doubled its membership in the past year. The Hughesville High School Spartan Chorus will celebrate later this week by performing at the Statue of Liberty.

On Wednesday, the group will be performing in New York Harbor in front of the Statue of Liberty.

“We’ll take the ferry ride from Battery Park to Liberty Island and sitting at the base of the Statue of Liberty is very cool,” Choral Director Brian Barckley said.

Choral Director Brian Barckley says this performance is possible thanks to renewed interest in the school’s music program.

The Hughesville High School Chorus has grown tremendously over the past year. Last year there were only 18 members in the group and this year there are 52.
