Where are they now?
Joe Kozlovac

Nanty Glo native Joseph P. Kozlovac was born April 12, 1965, and graduated from Bishop Carroll High School in 1983. After his graduation from high school, Joe went on to earn a Bachelor of Science in Biology at the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown in 1987, and in 1996 a Master of Science in Environmental Science and Policy from Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore.

Joe's professional resume' is lengthy and impressive. Currently, he is employed at NCI-Frederick Cancer Research Center, Ft. Detrick, Frederick, Md. through SAIC where he is responsible for the development and implementation of comprehensive biological and safety programs at the NCI facility.

Joe, his wife Tammy, and their two children currently make their home in rural Carroll Valley, Pa. Joe enjoys biking through the nearby Gettysburg Battlefields, reading science fiction and fantasy novels as well as history texts on Medieval Europe, and of course texts involving biological warfare and the impact of disease on mankind throughout history.

He enjoys a daily workout at the gym, walking his dogs (Desi and Lucy) and spending time with his family. Although little more than two hours away from hometown Nanty Glo, because of the busy pace of his life, his visits "home" are few and brief. But his memories are abundant and pleasant and some of his favorites are of days spent around his aunt and uncle's swimming pool in the company of cousins and other family members.

Anyone wishing to send greetings or say hello can find Joe at: jkozlovac@mail.ncifcrf.gov.

Low-emission vehicle

While driving in Pennsylvania, a family caught up to an Amish carriage. The owner of the carriage obviously had a sense of humor, because attached to the back of the carriage was a hand-printed sign... "Energy-efficient vehicle. Runs on oats and grass. Caution: Do not step into the exhaust."

Advent thought for the day

Moses was tending the flock of Jethro his father-in-law, the priest of Midian. And he led the flock to the back of the desert, and came to Horeb, the mountain of God. —Exodus 3:1

Moses had a most unusual but highly effective postgraduate course. God took him out of the activity and the noise of Egypt and placed him in the silence of the open spaces. He kept the flock of Jethro, his father-in-law. Tending the sheep, he learned lessons of meditation and observation that he could only have learned in the silence. Probably more important than anything else, Moses learned to know himself. That knowledge was a part of God's preparation of the man for his future tasks. We, today, know everything but ourselves. We never really come to know ourselves because we cannot get quiet enough.
