Good Morning Nanty Glo!

Frank Charney. Click for profile.NGHS faculty of 1944

Since the 1944 NGHS Class listing was sparse and incomplete, I managed to acquire a rare 1944 Echo Yearbook and decided to complete the listing of graduating students (click here for the revised class page—webmaster). The yearbook included a picture of the 1944 faculty, which is shown below.

The people listed on the class list are several years older that I (I graduated in 1950), but I can easily recall George May (a neighbor discussed in last week's postcard); and Caroline (Bubniak) Kitzaro, a neighbor; Margaret Davidson (employed for years at Nanty Glo News Stand); Delores (Dyson) Maxwell (a neighbor); Louis Gebacz; Charles Kalenak; Frank Lamantia; Doris (Mitchell) McDermott; John Paskowski,, and Steve Stopchick. Most of the others on the list I also easily recognized.


Myles E. Altimus Jr. (deceased)

Homer C. Bowers, Superintendent of Schools (deceased)
Geraldine L. Edmonds
John J. Gustin, Principal of High School (deceased)
Augusta M. LaMantia
Margaret B. McHugh (deceased - 1999)

Best Wishes for the New Year,
—Frank Charney


The first bumper stickers appeared in America in the 1950s. Originally, they weren't "stickers," but were attached by small wires twisted around bumpers (used for advertising). Here's what we think is the best collection of bumper sticker sentiments on the web (two daily, as long as they last).

Gravity is the only thing keeping me here.

Stupidity is not a handicap. Park elsewhere.

—Sent by Mary Ann Losiewcz 

Thought for today

We have been assured, Sir, in the Sacred Writings, that "except the Lord build the House, they labor in vain that build it." I firmly believe this; and I also believe that without His concurring aid we shall succeed in this political building no better, than the Builders of Babel.

— Benjamin Franklin, 
during his speech calling for prayer 
during the Constitutional Convention
