Life is drawn to water.  We all can relate to that.  Land bordering waterways and waterbodies is teaming with life.  Riparian is a term literally meaning “riverbank”, or land beside the water.  How we manage our riparian land has far reaching effects.  Therefore, the conservation district gi…

Q: Greg I’m a big Plymouth Road Runner and Dodge Super Bee enthusiast from the years 1968 to 1970.  When both were introduced in 1968, they became boulevard cruising classics. However, while these mid-size MOPARS were fast, especially with the 426 Hemi and 440s, they were both affordable and…

Q: Hello Greg! Decades ago, I’m thinking the summer of 1964, my friend and I both had dads that worked for Chrysler Corp. in Detroit. One night her dad brought home a prototype car and gave my dad and me a ride. All I remember is that it was a special car and when he started it and we drove …

Every spring all of the farmers I know start to get super antsy and excited to get planting done, only to roll right in to hay season (or whatever crops they grow), then followed immediately by corn harvest in the fall. There is no time for breaks, just a lot of racing to beat the next rains…

Q: Greg I read your “Collector Car Corner” features in the Bloomsburg Press Enterprise here in Pennsylvania. Thank you for your talent and expertise on classic cars.

Since the beginning of the pandemic in March, many strange things have been happening, most unexplainable. There was a toilet paper shortage, murder hornets and mysterious seeds. And then there is cue ball, a 1954 Chevrolet that originated out of Savannah, Georgia. 

It’s amazing how ignorant I have been in following the tradition of feeding hay to my animals. Once you’re in this agricultural paradigm for so long it’s hard to break the cycle of thinking. It wasn’t until I actually looked at my farm’s displaced fertility levels from a nutrient management …

Bradford County farm fields are made for grass.  Our grass covered hill fields can develop highly productive soil while contributing virtually no sediment to waterways; two reasons it is the primary crop for our food producers.  

In front of a row of flags, the man stands straight and tall. His dress coat holds brightly striped bars and gold buttons, and gold ribbon rings the lower sleeves. “U.S.” pins cling to the lapels.

Q: Greg, I’m wondering how the collector car values are holding up during this Covid-19 pandemic? Also, I’ve seen a few articles about Drive-In Movies making a big comeback. Can you comment? I enjoy your articles on Seacoast Online. Clare E., Portsmouth, New Hampshire.

Some farms are planting their fall cover crops this week. There are exciting things about being in agriculture today, and sometimes you have to look for them.

SAYRE — South Waverly resident David Park says before starting his weight loss journey 13 months ago, he would have to take three or four breaks while pushing his mower across his small lawn.

If I were to tell you to close your eyes and describe what comes to mind when you hear the word “wetland,” what would you describe? A stagnant, slimy waterbody?  A grassy, soupy area with cattails? Maybe that lower field that you can only make hay on every few years? How about that special p…

Q: Greg I enjoy your nostalgia auto columns so can you tell us about the car Peter Falk drives in the former hit TV series Columbo? I know it is a Peugeot, but that’s about it. Is Peugeot still in business? Carol H., New Hampshire.

Q: Greg, I have a few questions about your least favorite year of the 1966-1967-1968 Chevelles, namely the 1968 Chevelle SS396. I’m wondering how many 1968 Chevelles, overall, were produced and how many were Super Sport 396s? Which one is most valuable of the 68 Chevelle SS family?  Thanks, …

Grazing season has arrived which means farmers and animals alike kick their heels in glee! Supplemental feeding in the pasture, barn, or barnyard is expensive, labor intensive and stressful, so all are relieved to see the animals get out onto green pastures again.

As temperatures are getting warmer and summer is rapidly approaching, farmers are gearing up for hay season and farm kids are preparing for cow shows. 

Q: Dear Greg several months ago, a fellow member of the Kaiser-Frazer Owners Club International (KFOCI) forwarded a copy of his hometown Fulton County  (Illinois) Shopper from 25 November 2019, containing your Cars We Remember article about the 1954 Kaiser Darrin Sports Car.

As Sandy (Strope) Hill has proven with her life, “It’s never too late to pursue your dreams.”

Effective communication is a powerful tool that many outside of agriculture use on a daily basis.  Some use this tool to tell our story for us, when they haven’t experienced the trials and tribulations of farm life. This concerns me greatly as consumers and elected leaders get further remove…

Q: Greg I‘ve always loved those few but fast Jeep funny cars that raced in the mid-1960s. I remember the names Destroyer and Secret Weapon, but would love to hear your memories of these Jeeps that ran back then. Also, was the very first Jeep made by Willys? I know Fiat-Chrysler owns them now…

Troy Borough is celebrating the 175th Anniversary of its incorporation this year. The following article was submitted by Henry Farley editor of the Bradford County Historical Society quarterly magazine THE SETTLER which carried this story in the May edition.

Imagine this: it’s an early spring morning, the sun is shining and most of the snow has melted. You decide to take a walk down to your pond and see if the ice has melted off. You’re enjoying your walk, the warm sun softening the crisp of the morning air. As you approach your pond, you take i…

Q: Greg I enjoyed your column on the update on flying cars quite a bit and I’ve achieved an age of wisdom that tells me these flying cars are still not ready for prime time.  I’m also following the advancements in drone technology and the impact those will have on personal flying opportuniti…
