    Robert Raymond Robinson, 28, whose last known address was on Merry Go Round Road in Windham Township, has been charged with simple assault and harassment, police said.

    During the incident, Robinson also threatened to harm the victim and the victim's family with a gun, state police at Towanda said.

    Police said Moe was found to be growing several marijuana plants inside a house in Litchfield Township in which Moe was staying. A search of the property turned up a total of nine marijuana plants, a plastic bag containing suspected marijuana seeds and two glass smoking devices, police said.

    Moe was arraigned July 6 by Magisterial District Judge Fred Wheaton and remanded to the Bradford County Jail in lieu of $3,000 unsecured bail. Moe's preliminary hearing is scheduled for July 22.

    Dog death investigated

    SHAMOKIN - Richard Wright, field investigator for Phoenix Rescue Humane Police Department, Carlisle, is investigating the death of a dog that was discovered dead in a vacant lot at Seventh and Willow streets.

    Wright, whose agency investigates animal cruelty cases in Northumberland County, said there's a possibility the partially decomposed pug, which has been dead four or five weeks, may have been the victim of animal cruelty. He said the dog was less than five years old.

    "We believe it was left out in the heat with no food or water," Wright said. "No wounds were found on the body, but it may have been abused."

    He said the dog didn't have a license on it, but a piece of rope was tied to its collar.

    Wright said a concerned neighbor notified him about the dog, which was removed from the lot at about 1:15 p.m. Wednesday by city street department employees with the assistance of police.

    Anyone with information about the dog or other potential animal cruelty complaints should call Wright at 570-556-1023 or department chief Ron Hollister at 717-226-1575.

    Depending on the circumstances, writing this column can be either one of my greatest joys, or one of my greatest heartaches.

    Today, unfortunately, it's the latter case.

    I guess it's kind of like having kids. There are times when you are very proud of then, and then there are other situations in which you want to wring their necks. But you love them all just the same.

    Whenever I have inspiration for a column, the words just come out easily. Sometimes it's so easy, in fact, that it doesn't seem like work at all. But then there are other times, like now, when I think it would be easier to move a mountain than get this thing written.

    What's involved is subject matter. If I have a subject in mind for a column, things usually go pretty smoothly. The ease which which I can write a column is directly linked to how strongly I feel about the subject - because my emotions can generally give me the ammunition I need to write a good column.

    However, every now and then, I get into a mood in which I just don't seem to want to write about anything. Longtime readers of my column know this is a rare occurrence, but happen it does. And there is nothing - absolutely nothing - more frustrating to a writer than to sit and stare ahead with nothing coming.

    The problem - referred to in publishing circles as "writer's block" ­- never occurs during "straight" news stories. That's because the subject matter is already at hand, and a good reporter simply works with the existing facts. Features can be a little more tricky, because they sometimes require a little more imagination on the part of the reporter to write properly. Still, it can be done, due to the fact that a large part of the work is recording the facts properly.

    So, what makes a column like this different? Well, columns and editorials are more free-wheeling. As a writer, I'm required to make it work - I'm required to put more of myself into what I am writing.

    This can make a column one of the most fun things to write. After all, you don't get to be a journalist by hiding your light under a bushel. I confess, blowing my own horn is one of the great pleasures I get out of life. However, this also means that writing a column can be one of the greatest crosses a journalist has to bear. Because, as I said before, trying to write something when you can't think of anything to write about is sheer agony.

    Now, some wags might ask: "Why don't you just skip it this week, if you can't think of anything to write about?" To which I reply: "What, and disappoint everyone who reads my column? Not on your life!" I mean, even if I can't get it completely up to snuff each and every week, I believe I owe it to you folks to at least try and come up with something.

    Reading over what I just wrote, I suddenly realized that I managed to come up with something - writing about not being able to think up something to write about. Only in the newspaper field, I guess. See you next week, folks.
