Where are they now?
Philip ("Phil') Cronauer

Born in 1935, Phil resided in Nanty Glo from 1939 to '53. After his 1953 graduation from Nanty Glo High School, he went on to serve four years in the United States Navy. Although employed at the Federal Bureau of Investigation in Washington D. C. from 1958-1966, after obtaining his degree from Seton Hill University, his primary employment was in the banking industry in the New England area.

Phil has been married to New Jersey native Virginia ("Ginnie") Sawicki since 1966 and this charming couple are the parents of two grown sons and enjoy two grandchildren. Semiretired since 1989, Phil decided to leave the long cold New England winters behind and relocate to sunny Florida, where he remains active tending his fruit trees, gardening, and spending three days a week at a local retirement community visiting and volunteering his time with the elderly residents.

Although gone from the Nanty Glo area for many years, he returns regularly for class reunions and the occasional vacation. Phil currently makes his home in the Lake Worth area of Palm Beach County, Fla., but states: "Nanty Glo will always be home."

Regretfully, there is no email address. If anyone wishes to contact him to say hello, send email to Highlandrose43@yahoo.com.

Kids say the funniest things

This comes from a Catholic elementary school. Kids were asked questions about the Old and New Testaments. The following statements about the bible were written by children. They have not been retouched or corrected (incorrect spelling has been left in).

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1. In the first book of the bible, Guinessis, God got tired of creating the world, so he took the Sabbath off.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2. Adam and Eve were created from an apple tree. Noah's wife was called Joan of Ark. Noah built an ark, which the animals come on to in pears.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

3. Lot's wife was a pillar of salt by day, but a ball of fire by night.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

4. The Jews were a proud people and throughout history they had trouble with the unsympathetic Genitals.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

5. Samson was a strongman who let himself be led astray by a Jezebel like Delilah.

Advent thought for the day

Resentment simply cannot dwell in a loving heart. Before resentfulness can enter, love must take its flight and bitterness take over. The bitter soul will compile a list of slights at which it takes offense and will watch over itself like a mother bear over her cubs. And the figure is apt, for the resentful heart is always surly and suspicious like a she-bear.
