By The Daily Item

— The Daily Item newspaper has plenty to offer to readers this weekend. In addition to providing all the local breaking news, the paper will also feature the following items over the next two days …

In Saturday’s paper, don’t miss our weekly church notes and religious news as you prepare for your weekend’s activities. Also, we have a full calendar of events for the whole family all happening locally. Our Saturday sports pages will include full coverage on all the high school football playoff action from tonight.

In Sunday’s paper, the annual needy family fund kicks off and we have a story on how the post-election movement to secede from the United States has hit our local Valley. Also, we share a scam story, telling readers how to best protect themselves.

Reporter Francis Scarcella learns how hard it is to plan a benefit football game as he prepares a group of area personalities to take on the Shikellamy gridiron team in a flag football showdown. We also learn from area collectors why now is the best time to start your own political memorabilia collection.

Get all the news on local businesses that are coming and going, a full calendar for next week’s children-focused Valley activities and in our Scrapbook section, we begin to announce the area’s first semester honor roll students. On the Sunday outdoors page, you can check out some neat photos and story about a surprising intruder as it attacks a Snyder County chicken pen in the middle of the night.

And of course, don’t forget that the Sunday paper will be packed with sales inserts and flyers as local businesses amp up for the Black Friday shopping sales and crowds, and our classifieds section shares the area’s most current job openings and various items for sale.

We hope you have a great weekend.
