Where are they now? Al Farabaugh

Born in Colver Hospital December 12,1959, Al is a 1979 graduate of Blacklick Valley High School. He has never strayed far from beloved hometown Nanty Glo. Although he tested the employment atmosphere in Pittsburgh for a while, working as a certified welder and as a produce manager, he was not comfortable "working for someone else" and returned "home" to Nanty Glo to be his "own boss."

Because of his family's ties to the restaurant business; The K&B Restaurant (a fondly remembered teen hangout) and several pizza shops in the local area, Al's venture into the food service business "just happened." Al is currently the owner/operator of Pizza By the Slice located on Chestnut Street next to the former Freedom Ford building.

Al is the "boss," except when "the big boss" (his Mom) is at the shop helping out with some of the cooking. Al is the devoted and loving father of one child, Tara Nicole, born March 24,1998.

These days, the pizza shop keeps Al busy, but when he has the time he likes to go hunting and fishing. Al enjoys spending "quality time" with his young daughter, and when possible takes young Tara to the family hunting camp in northern Pennsylvania to check on the Elk.

He likes to dabble in the stock market and keeps tabs on his stock portfolio via the Internet, but spare time to surf the web is virtually nonexistent. Time permitting, he likes to head to the course to squeeze in a game or two of golf.

Al has fond memories of his Nanty Glo childhood; playing basketball during his elementary school years and going on family camping trips to Prince Gallitzin State Park. One vivid camping memory; getting stranded at Prince Gallitzin Park the night of the 1977 flood.

As a member of a large family, Al remembers and continues to enjoy the huge family Christmas parties that continue to be held every Christmas eve at the home of his Aunt Frances Bednar. Al can be found most days and evenings at the pizza shop...stop in and say howdy!

From the mouths of babes

A Sunday School teacher began her lesson with a question. "Boys and girls, what do we know about God?"

A hand shot up in the air. "He is an artist!" said the kindergarten boy.

"Really? How do you know?" the teacher asked.

"You know - Our Father, who does art in Heaven.... "
