“I think it will be a shame to see our local health services reduced even further without getting public opinion and having a debate on if it’s the right thing to do for the residents.

“The Nythe Surgery has been around since I was a child. I think it’s a really good place for locals to go if they need to see a doctor. For it to be shut down so suddenly seems really strange. It’s going to affect everyone in the local area.”

The closure has been prompted by the merger of Eldene Health Centre and the town centre based Victoria Cross Surgery, following the retirement of Dr Richard Guilding, the sole GP partner at Eldene.

Nythe is currently a branch of the Victoria Cross Surgery.

Dr Guilding said he was “delighted” with the merger, saying it would benefit patients.

“Victoria Cross Surgery is an established practice and I am confident that this merger will have a positive impact on the care of patients” he said.

Dr Philip Bauliah, GP partner at Victoria Cross Surgery, said: “Dr Guilding and his team have provided excellent primary care services for many years at Eldene Health Centre.

“We know he will be greatly missed by his patients and staff on his retirement. We would like to reassure patients that they are at the heart of all our plans and that we will continue to provide primary care services at the practice sites.”

the north face ladies boots hits key 3 as Kentucky tops North Carolina

LAS VEGAS Malik Monk scored a Kentucky freshman record 47 points and hit the go ahead 3 pointer with 16.7 seconds left to lead the sixth ranked Wildcats past No. 7 North Carolina 103 100 on Saturday in a thrilling showdown of traditional powers.

North Carolina’s Justin Jackson nearly outshined Monk with 34 points, and his basket with 45 seconds left put the Tar Heels (10 2) ahead after trailing much of the second half.

Monk responded with a right wing 3 in transition to put Kentucky up 101 100 after it led much of the second half. After Isaiah Hicks only hit the backboard at the other end, Kentucky’s De’Aaron Fox hit two free throws with 1.9 seconds left.

North Carolina got the ball in the front court with less than a second left. But Kenny Williams’ desperation 3 at the buzzer got lodged between the rim and backboard.

Monk hit 18 of 28 shots, including 8 of 12 3 point attempts, scoring in various ways in an electric performance that was the most points in Division I this season. And Kentucky needed it to offset Jackson’s 4 3s and 10 free throws in a game played at a furious pace

Fox added 24 points for Kentucky (10 1), which shot 54 percent from the field.

Joel Berry II returned from injury to add 23 points for the Tar Heels, but was slowed by foul trouble in the second half.

The sold out enthusiastic crowd at the new T Mobile Arena just off the Las Vegas Strip made it feel like an Elite Eight game. The quality of play in the CBS Sports Classic matchup gave it more of a Final Four feel.

With two of the highest scoring and fastest teams squaring off, Kentucky coach John Calipari joked earlier in the week he and fellow Hall of Famer Roy Williams would be constantly yelling, “Get back!” on defense.

In their 38th meeting between the schools and the first in two years, Monk dominated early and Kentucky raced to a 12 point lead. Jackson and Berry,
the north face arctic parka sale hits key 3 as Kentucky tops North Carolina
who returned from a two game absence due to a sprained left ankle, kept scoring off the dribble as North Carolina got within 56 51 at halftime.

There was hardly time to catch a breath. Kentucky got the lead back to five as Monk reached 36 points to give him the most by a Kentucky freshman. Then Berry, who scored 23 points, picked up his fourth foul as Kentucky built its lead to 83 74. Berry eventually fouled out.

The Tar Heels rallied to tie it on Tony Bradley’s two free throws with 2:51 left and went ahead on Jackson’s 3 with 1:33 remaining.


Kentucky: Monk couldn’t have put on a better display in a bigger setting, solidifying his star status and putting fear into Southeastern Conference opponents.

North Carolina: The Tar Heels never slowed the pace and was happy playing uptempo for 40 minutes. But foul trouble and the inability to contain Monk and others off the dribble cost them a chance at a big pre conference victory. A game played with this pace and skill had to impress the rest of college basketball.


It gets no easier for Kentucky, which travels to rival No. 11 Louisville on Wednesday.

Critics of the move, including Republican leaders like Paul Ryan, fear a trade war could be looming. The European Union has already threatened new tariffs on American exports if Trump’s proposal becomes reality. Trump says trade wars are “good, and easy to win.”

the north face duffel History pours from the Lehigh Valley breweries

the north face size History pours from the Lehigh Valley breweries

But the local industry that grew for two centuries sputtered between the 1950s and 1970s, when a few dozen giant breweries took control of the American beer market, Bowen said.

“There was pretty much a consolidation to bigger breweries,” he said, and the choice of beers narrowed. “Back in the 1970s, you had almost no choice but lager,” and not a great variety of it.

All that changed in the 1990s, when the smaller sale brewing that blossomed in California in the 1980s inspired craft breweries in Easton and Bethlehem. Allentown would not be far behind.

In 1995, Dan and Sue Weirback founded Weyerbacher Brewing, a craft brewery on South Sixth Street in Easton. In 1998, the Fegley family opened the Brew Works in the old Orr’s building at 569 Main St. in Bethlehem.

“It was the second birth of beer brewing in the Lehigh Valley,” Bowen said.

The first birth was in 1749, when German speaking Moravians constructed a brewery in a stone building in the village of Christiansbrunn, or Christian’s Spring, a half mile west of Nazareth.

Christian Mathiesen, a Denmark born brewer, ran the brewery until it closed in 1796.

Meanwhile, in 1781, the Moravians started up a brewery behind the Single Brethren’s House at Main and Church streets in Bethlehem. In 1803, it hired its most famous brewmaster, Johann Sebastian Goundie.

Goundie is the man Bowen plays these days at re enactments for Historic Bethlehem Museums and Sites.

The brewery at the Single Brethren’s House was closed in 1812, on Goundie’s recommendation, and a new one opened near Goundie’s house near Bethlehem’s Monocacy Creek.

Bowen said Goundie also helped take beer making to Easton. In 1821, Frederick Seitz Sr. and Goundie, who was Seitz’s cousin, built the Seitz brewery in a wheat field at Second and Spring Garden streets, near the Delaware River.

Six years later, Goundie became Bethlehem’s first mayor.

According to Bowen, Goundie represented the end of the ale era, during which the relatively simple brew was the Lehigh Valley’s only beer. Goundie died in 1845.

Until the 1840s, Bowen explained, most immigrants from England, Germany and the rest of northern Europe knew no beer but ale.

But by the 1850s, German and Danish breweries were shifting to lager, a beer style that took much more cold storage time than ale to ferment and condition, but quickly was gaining popularity.

Then a new wave of German immigrants to the Lehigh Valley brought lager’s secrets with them.

The Lieberman Brewery became Allentown’s first large scale brewery in 1845 when William Oberly opened it at Sixth and Union streets. The brewery started with English style ales, Bowen said, but within 10 years it would have been producing lager.

Willibald Kuebler and Charles Glantz opened the Kuebler brewery on South Delaware Drive in Easton in 1852. They dug storage caves into the bank of the Delaware River and started brewing lager.

“In winter, they’d cut ice from the river and haul it into the caves,” Bowen said. “They’d lower kegs of beer down there and keep them cold.”

As demand for beer increased, saloon owner John Schilling started a brewery in Bethlehem in 1856. Matthias Uhl bought it a few years later and, after modernizing its operations, the Uhl brewery on Monocacy Creek was going strong.

The breweries of the late 19th century Industrial Age were innovating constantly, Bowen said. Their methods refrigeration and mass production, for example often were imitated by other manufacturers.

“A lot of the earliest inventions were used in the breweries,” he said. “I think the beer processing line, the bottling line, existed before Henry Ford’s assembly line.”

In 1883, the Seitz Brewery in Easton was the first in Pennsylvania to put its beer in its own bottles. From the brewery building, underground pipes pumped beer under a street to the bottling department.

In Allentown, Frederick Horlacher started one of the region’s larger breweries at Third and Gordon streets in 1897, a decade after he bought a smaller brewery at Fourth and Hamilton streets.

Also in Allentown, Neuweiler’s Brewery was the region’s most stylish beer making factory when Louis Neuweiler and his son Charles opened it at Front and Gordon streets in 1913, two years before the city’s aging Lieberman Brewery closed.

Neuweiler’s six story brew house of red brick was built with a big concrete letter “N” on its front wall and an elegant cupola of copper and glass at the top.

Prohibition, which went into effect in 1920, put most breweries out of business for 13 years, but a few struggled through by making more soft drinks while others sold illegal beer to the speakeasies and smugglers.

Beer makers celebrated the end of Prohibition. Even with the Depression, beer demand was high, but breweries had to be clever marketers if they were to survive.

In the 1930s and ’40s, Horlacher’s Brewery was guided by legendary brewmaster Charles E. Lieberman. The brewery was popular for its Nine Months Old “Perfection Beer” ale, specially aged to withstand long distance deliveries, and its Nine Months Old lager.

the north face winter boots History of the Gleaner Combine

History of the Gleaner Combine by Jack S. Waverly; Updated September 26, 2017 The Gleaner combine has a long history and a well known brand identity. Even with being owned by four different companies, the combine continued to be known for quality and innovation. Here is a brief history of the Gleaner combine from its beginnings to where they are manufactured today.

The Baldwin BrothersThe Gleaner combine was created in 1923 by the Baldwin Brothers in Kansas. The name “Gleaner” came from an 1857 painting by Jean Francois Millet.

William James BraceIn the 1930s, Gleaner Baldwin Combines went into receivership. William James Brace, along with his son in law, brought the company out of bankruptcy.

Allis ChalmersGleaner combines were being made by Allis Chalmers in 1955 when the company bought the brand. This company would become AGCO by 1991.

Notable ModelsSome notable models created have included the first machine to incorporate reaping, binding and threshing into one machine. Others include the N6 rotary combine and the N7 combine with a 30 foot grain head, which was the largest of its kind.

Manufacturing PointsGleaner combines were born in Kansas, and later moved to Independence, Missouri. The company was moved to Hesston, Kansas, nearby the original beginning of the company.

I also undertook a range of free lance commissions, including work on guide books, on picture research and captioning, and on a number of exhibitions and interpretative strategies.

Although in the main I was working outside academia at this stage, I continued to research and write and began to have scholarly material published. This process was aided by a year spent living and working at Wellington in New Zealand in the mid 1980s as a post doctoral fellow of the Victoria University of Wellington. I returned full time to academic work in the late 1980s and since then have held teaching posts at the University of Wales (Swansea), the University of London (Royal Holloway) and the University of Chester.

My interests range over history and archaeology, especially visiting castles, churches and chapels. I also enjoy second hand bookshops and acquiring (too many) second hand books, walking and photography.

Hotel SearchThough its population hovers around just 2,500, Haines, Alaska, boasts a robust arts community, respected culinary gems and all the outdoor adventure that one expects on the Last Frontier. Ferries and regional planes connect this remote Inside Passage town to Juneau, Alaska’s capital, and a few small cruise ships stop here each summer.

The glacial peaks and scenic waterways that surround Haines set a stunning backdrop for the Hotel Halsingland, a historical property on Fort William H. Seward. Since the military post was decommissioned in 1947, its structures have been repurposed for retail and residential use. Hotel Halsingland occupies the former commanding and bachelor officers’ quarters, with 35 spacious, simply outfitted rooms available between May and September.

On a recent hosted stay, I grabbed a glass of wine at the Officers’ Club Lounge. Here, rustic wood and vintage accents play up the property’s storied past, and wide windows overlook the fort’s former parade grounds. The dinner menu in the lounge and adjacent Commander’s Room Restaurant spotlights Alaska caught seafood, seasonal produce and from scratch specials.

Nearby, the Fireweed Restaurant fills a 1904 structure that once stocked hardware and household goods for Fort Seward’s personnel. The bustling cafe, open from March through September, puts a local, organic spin on thin crust pizzas and comfort food.

Across Blacksmith Street,

in an old military bakery updated with salvaged wood and a Kentucky made copper still, the Port Chilkoot Distillery makes spirits inspired by Southeast Alaska. In just three years, the distillery has earned national recognition for small batch blends seasoned with regional elements such as spruce tips, lemon balm and juniper berries.

A mile away, the Haines Brewing Co. opened the Main Street brewery and tasting room in late 2015. It’s a convenient pit stop for travelers surveying the downtown art scene.

The nonprofit Alaska Arts Confluence hosts community art events on the first Friday of each month and organizes Main Street window displays featuring the work of area photographers, painters, woodworkers and others.

Back at Fort Seward, the Alaska Arts Confluence recently established a sculpture garden inspired by the region’s history, industry, natural beauty and Alaska Native culture. In 2017, the organization is introducing interpretive signs and walking tour maps of the fort’s art installations and significant sites.

Additional cultural stops at Fort Seward include the Alaska Indian Arts gallery and the Chilkat Center for the Arts, a thriving performance and events venue.

Flightseeing tours soar over the region’s mountains and ice fields, and glacier treks and ice climbing excursions offer immersive natural experiences. To combine adventure and culture, book a rafting trip to the Jilkaat Kwaan Heritage Center Bald Eagle Preserve Visitor Center in the Tlingit village of Klukwan. Exhibits introduced in 2016 feature art and artifacts stored behind closed doors for decades.

Alaska’s Inside Passage also promises plenty of wildlife watching, whether on tour at the American Bald Eagle Foundation’s museum and raptor center or while exploring the area parkland. When I followed the Chilkoot River out of town, I spotted a line of cars pulled over at a bend in the road. Camera lenses poked out of several rolled down windows. There, against a backdrop of pine trees and rocky rapids, a black bear and two cubs played along the shore.

the north face promo code Historic steam locomotive headed north

Steam locomotive No. 12, the pride of the former Morehead and North Fork Railroad, is leaving Clearfield for a new home and extended life in Sugar Creek, Ohio.

Said to be the last locomotive of its type in the entire world, the 70 ton switch engine was sold by the family of the late C. L. (Booge) Armstrong to the Age of Steam Roundhouse, the private railroad collection owned by Jerry Joe and Laura Jacobson.

Jacobson said old No. 12 built in 1905 will be restored to operating condition and housed in a new, 18 stall roundhouse with his 12 other steam locomotives.

“It’s a nice rebuildable size with a simple design,” Jacobson said. “It’s been kept in nice shape inside the engine house.”

Jacobson is the former CEO and board chairman of the Ohio Central Railroad System (OCRS) which he sold in 2008.

Neither Jacobson nor Rick Armstrong, representing the Armstrong family, would divulge the price paid for the engine which was last under steam in 1963.

“We are confident that No. 12 will be properly restored and preserved by the Jacobsons,

” said Armstrong. “They have been interested in her for many years.”

The Morehead News is aware that the Rowan County Historical Society also made a purchase offer on the old engine.

James Johnson, who describes himself as the historian of the old M watched this week as riggers prepared the locomotive and its tender (coal car) for truck transport to the Jacobson facility in Northern Ohio.

He said of the activity:

“As a railroad historian, I find this transition a little sad but No. 12’s future could not be brighter. She is going to a good home with skilled mechanics and she will be operable again for the first time since 1963.”

Johnson, who provided much of the information used in this article, said No. 12 was built for the former Southern Railway in 1905 and was used in Evansville and Princeton, Ind., as a switch engine in the railroad yards there.

Johnson said the M purchased the engine in 1952 for $3,500 and brought it to Clearfield to move clay from Clack Mountain to Clearfield and then to the Lee Clay Products plant.

The locomotive remained on the property after the Morehead and North Fork filed for abandonment in 1972 and was sold in 1973, along with the Lee Clay property, to Homer Gregory Co.,

Johnson said it later was used to haul lumber to the Morehead siding of the Chesapeake and Ohio Railway before the C closed down between Ashland and Winchester in 1985.
