David Caldwell's weekly roundup
of news affecting Blacklick Valley

Forwarded from the Webmaster from Edinburgh, Scotland
Gallikers, Johnstown's entry in the 2001 All-American Amateur Baseball
Association, made a determined effort to win the double-elimination series.
They won their first five games and faced off with Washington, a team they had
already beaten once during the week.  Washington rallied back on Saturday to
beat Galikers and force the Johnstown team to confront them again on Sunday.
Unfortunately, the local boys came up short.  They did, though, earn a lot of
respect from their fans for being one of the best Johnstown entries ever in the
Park and Pool
As mentioned last week, the Nanty Glo pool has had a great success this summer
thanks to the hot weather.  If similar conditions prevail for the next several
weeks, the pool will finish the season in the black for a change.  The
Authority is planning to rebuild the diving board and add a water slide if
finances go the right way.  The McMullen field is getting a new press box as
well as new bleachers.  The work will be completed prior to the first football
Free School Clothing
The United Methodist Church on Lloyd Street announced the establishment of a
Once-monthly store for school clothing in the church basement.  The clothes are
given to customers for free.  School-aged children coming to the opening on
August 25 will also receive a packet of school supplies as well as new socks
and underwear.
Firemen's Convention
The firemen's convention began on Thursday, August 16.  The carnival set up on
the parking lot around the firehall.  The firemen have erected a large tent to
hold nightly dances and serve refreshments.  The town was alive with many
people on the streets and the sound of music filling the air on Thursday
evening.  A light rain fell but not enough to curtail the festivities.
Stores Closing
The Ames Discount Department Store chain announced the closing of 47 stores,
including the one in Cambria Township and the one in the former Richland Mall.
More than one hundred local citizens will lose their jobs when the stores close
permanently in late October.  An Ames spokesman blames the closings on the
slackened national economy as well as stiff local competition.  Both of the
local stores were formerly Hills Department Stores.
Judge Dies
Former Judge Eugene Creany died at his home in Ebensburg on August 16, 2001.
The governor appointed Judge Creany, a graduate of the former Nanty Glo High
School, to the Court of Common Pleas in 1951.  Judge Creany was the father of
current Cambria County Judge Timothy Creany.


Things I wish I'd known before going out into the real world

A person needs only two tools. WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and it should, use WD-40. If it moves and shouldn't, use the tape.
