Mount Union – Thank you to the Wesleyan Church at Mount Union for hosting a community Thanksgiving service this year. The choir of the New Life Fellowship Church was great as were the songs from Mount Hope Church. Even after Thanksgiving is over, let’s be thankful every day for all the blessings God has given us.

Smithfield Top. – It’s the holiday season. So, it’s Hallmark movie season, all of you! I have a request, although I highly doubt Hallmark executives have read Opinion Line. I suggest they shoot their movies here during the holiday season. Expand this budget, shoot different movies in different cities in the county. Huntingdon County is basically one of the live-action Hallmark movies during the holiday season. Christmas tree farmer? Check. Tree lighting ceremony? Check. Generous people give back to their communities? Check. Now, all we need is someone who has grown up here and moved to the big city to come back and fall in love with the locals who have been longing for them all their lives. Make it happen, Hallmark! do it!

It should make you understand. never give up. Never gonna let you down. I will not run and leave you. It won’t make you cry. I will not say goodbye. I will never lie and hurt you

Huntingdon – Thanks to the person who shared the hygge concept at Opinion Line last week. Hygge is a Danish word/concept for comfort and contentment and is the perfect word to embrace during this time of year. For me, hygge involves hot coffee, pumpkin pies, and watching the leaves blow outside without worrying about rushing in there to ignite them just yet. What is your version of hygge?

Henderson Top. – Thank you to the Standing Stone Garden Club for the lovely holiday decorations they made in the courtroom. They modernized the central planter at the court steps and decorated the monuments in the courtyard adjacent to the court. Please may slow down a bit at the end of Ben Street so you can enjoy their talented work. Thank you SSGC!

Warrior Ridge – Never be afraid to take chances and step outside your comfort zone to improve yourself. I finished Huntingdon by getting a chance at a new job and planned to go back to where I came soon after. However, I fell in love with the community of Huntingdon and the beauty of this area. You will never once make me feel like a stranger and greet me with open arms. Thanks for being a great community

Warrior Ridge – Four worms were placed in four separate test tubes: the first in beer, the second in wine, the third in whiskey, and the fourth in mineral water. The next day the teacher showed the results. The first worm in beer: dead. The second worm in the wine: dead. The third worm in the whiskey: dead. Fourth worm in mineral water: alive and healthy. The teacher asks the class, “What did we learn from this experience?” The child answers: “He who drinks beer, wine, and whiskey has no worms.”

Huntingdon – Watched the Women’s National Football League Championship game this weekend. The quality of play was exceptional and goalkeeper Aubrey Bledsoe was a monster in the net. It was great to see US defensive back Kelly O’Hara score the game’s goal for Washington Spirit. I’m glad the game was on CBS, as most of the regular season games were on Paramount+ which requires a subscription. I am looking forward to the Challenge Cup next year to start the season! “

Huntingdon – Harry Potter would not have been successful even through the first book had it not been for Hermione Granger. These books should be called “Hermione Granger Saves the Day and gets no credit for it”. In this article you will…

HUNTINGDON – A duck went up to the lemonade stand and said to the man who was running at the stand: ‘Hello! (Bam bam bam!) Do you have grapes?’ The man said, ‘No, we only sell lemonade, but it’s cold, fresh and all homemade!’ May I have a cup for you? “I’ll pass,” said the duck, “and then wobbled away—wobble.” Until the next day, boom boom boom boom boom.

Huntingdon Corporation – I would like to thank and encourage Rive. Angelo Valli for the great articles he wrote for the Religion News Print page in the Saturday issue of The Daily News. My husband and I look forward to reading articles that affirm, promote and educate. God bless you, Angelo, as you serve our Most High God.

Huntingdon Company Dear Sir or Madam, sauteed cauliflower is superior to sautéed mushrooms, potatoes, and breaded shrimp (but not coconut shrimp)! Get a hug by watching a recording of a Pitt-UVA game over and over. Pecan and pumpkin pie is a tie unless my wife is baking with her mom’s secret pie crust recipe—then the pecan is a winner. Wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!

Kistler – I am grateful for all the money that municipalities and school districts got from the US bailout, proposed by President Biden and approved by Congressional Democrats.

Three Springs – Three Springs First Center would like to give a big thank you to Three Springs Lions Club for making a donation to have our rain faucet installed on our front porch. If anyone can give us an estimate and fix it, we would gladly appreciate it before the snow comes. Also, thanks to Marcia Slits, Linda Clark and Judy Petty for providing a social brunch on Thanksgiving and we’d like to welcome our new food server Benny Gibbons. Our prayers are with the Chris Watkins family. God bless you all.

Smithfield – There is no better gift you can give this holiday season than to present it to the Humane Society of Huntingdon County. They give so much to the homeless animals in our county all year round, and the least we can do is give them back. Cuddle your dog or cat and enjoy the holiday season.

Huntingdon Company – I would just say Smithfield, the bike shop there, he is only able to help and he is very generous and I would like to tell him I am very grateful to him for fixing my stuff.

On Thursdays she had turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, her husband, who works part-time here at Pott’s Apartments and the maintenance manager and manager working on Tosha, and several residents here at Potts Apartments were with her. We all had a great time and everyone brought a covered platter and everyone in attendance enjoyed it and just want to say a big thank you tosha.

Shirleysburg – I would like to thank the person who found my wallet in the parking lot of the Weis Store in Mount Union on Tuesday morning, November 23. You must have found it and took it to the store when I was picking up my car, as when I got home 15 minutes later there was a message on the phone telling me that someone had found my wallet and handed it over. It was not opened, the debit card and the money was there. It was like Christmas to me and I know such an honest and caring person is right there. The store clerk didn’t remember what you looked like, as I thought you might still be in the store and wanted to thank you in person. But thank you, thank you! This means the world to me.
