On to Hershey

Bravo to State High's remarkable football team.

They beat the best in the west, and then dominated the best in the Harrisburg area to earn the trip to Hershey.

Their challenge: Beat Philly's best, LaSalle, and win their first state title.

I think this talented team will do it. Let's hope State High fans turn Hershey into Happy Valley on Saturday.

Now for fans who will head to Hershey, maybe with only a concern that they'll lose the final weekend before Christmas to finish their shopping.

No worriers. Just wander over Hershey's Chocolate World and find some gifts for everyone.

Take it from me, I went there every year when I lived in Harrisburg and found items for people. Of course there's plenty of chocolate, if you want to give that. But there are other things you might find, and Chocolate World is always fun to visit.

There also are good outlets close to Hersheypark Stadium. Make a day of it and shop, then route home State High.

Have a great, history-making time everyone.
