Bill O'Boyle is the Times Leader Media Group's news columnist/staff writer. His popular "Beyond the Byline" column on Sundays and occasional "Feet to the Fire"commentaries are fixtures on our pages. Bill has written for the Times Leader since April 2007, covering everything from Wilkes-Barre City to presidential races and local, state and national politics to breaking news to the repair of the Wyoming Monument. A native of Plymouth now residing in Plains Township, O'Boyle volunteers with Victory Sports for adults with mental and physical challenges, the Hope Center Free Clinic of Wyoming Valley and he serves as a judge in the annual Plymouth Kielbasa Festival contest. A child of the sixties, O'Boyle often visits the site of the 1969 Woodstock Music & Art Fair in Bethel, New York, and his radio is locked into the music of that time.
