Welcome New Supervisors

It’s a politically exciting time in Barrett nowadays, as our voters recently elected 3 new supervisors.

Maybe it’s the low, end-of-year light, but on the trail to Mount Wismer, I seem to feel forest life settling down all around me. Black bears denning up, sows soon to birth young. White-tailed deer snuffling the leaf litter for acorns and beechnuts. Coyote and foxes, fishers and otters, rabbits, mice, and voles — do they smell snow coming? The cold-blooded creatures are still.

The sense of connectedness to the natural world is strong here. It’s quiet. The only sounds are the crunch of boots, rustle of leaves, and sighing breezes among bare branches.

Irving Berlin fans can enjoy a 90-minute cabaret based on his works this month at two venues in the Poconos.

Four vocalists will perform “A White Christmas Cabaret” twice at the Lodge at Mountain Springs Lake and once at the Tennis Tea at Buck Hill Falls.

Editor's Note: Kudos to our friends at Skytop Lodge for making this list!  

“The gingerbread hotel at Skytop Lodge in Skytop, Pennsylvania, measures 19 ft. wide by 12 ft. deep and reaches a height of 11 ft. from its base. Production on the gingerbread hotel began in early August and the lodge staff set to work assembling the structure the week of Halloween. Once the frame was erected, the entire bakery team labored to attach the gingerbread and then the candy decorations.”
