Town web pages

Having traveled to Willows, Calif., over Sunday night to spend my President's Day holiday with my brother Bob and his wife, Katy, and getting back late with Tuesday's entry not yet begun, I'll take the easy way out and, rather than try for an essay for today, will report on a pleasant surprise that was waiting in my email on getting back.

Many thanks to Judy Rose for sending the accompanying scan of a column (shown truncated for space) in Monday's Tribune-Democrat discussing Cambria County towns with home pages on the Internet and featuring ours first in the list. And thanks to the columnist, Hugh Conrad, for bringing attention to these attempts to enhance our respective towns. I had no advance indication that such a feature was in the works.

Besides our own, Conrad also features the Ebensburg page (linked as one of our courtesy links on the front page rollover menus), and ones for Carrolltown, Northern Cambria, and Portage. He also says the best search engine for these sites is www.google,com, which we've had on our site for, I believe, about two years. Because the text in the scan is small and low-contrast, I'll quote the part pertaining to us:

"On the western side of Cambria County, www.nantyglo.com provides a view of Nanty Glo and the Blacklick Valley. One of the interesting parts of that journey included information on the Nant-Y-Glo Tri-Area Museum and Historical Society. This group organized almost two years ago.

"At the original meeting on May 11, 2000, the group named John Dropcho and Barbara Hakanen, codirectors' Donna Davis, secretary, and Theresa Golia, treasurer.

"The organization is presently working on a CD about Nanty Glo. Some other information about the history of the community and the events occurring in the town are available on the Web site, which is maintained by Jon Kennedy. The site also provides a 'cyber hike' through the Blacklick Valley with Kennedy, one that includes Encarta Maps to allow the visitor from many miles away to follow,"

I'll add only that besides the pages Conrad mentions, also well worth visiting are the pages for Blacklick Township by George Warholic and the Colver page, both also linked on our courtesy links menu, and also a website for Lilly, and several sites for the City of Johnstown (see our Johnstown links page for those links).

Why tachers go crazy-4

HAROLD: Teacher, would you punish me for something I didn't do?
TEACHER: Of course not. HAROLD: Good, because I didn't do my homework.


TEACHER: Why are you late? WEBSTER: Because of the sign.
TEACHER: What sign? WEBSTER: The one that says, "School Ahead, Go Slow."

Thought for the Day

The scribes and pharisees despised the common man; Jesus loved him. The scribes and pharisees stood on their little eminence of formal piety and looked down on the sinner. Jesus came and sat beside him, and by sitting beside him lifted him up.

—W. Barclay
