|This Nanty Glo landmark is hardly recognizable
these days. However, take a closer look. It's Brownie's Garage with a facelift!
The building, on the corner of Second and Chestnut Streets, was recently purchased
by Allen Farabaugh and totally remodeled. The first floor will be the site of
an as-yet-undetermined business, and the second floor has been turned into a nicely
appointed two-bedroom apartment. This is one vintage Nanty Glo building that was
spared the wrecking ball.|

Thought for today
It's good to have money and the things money
can buy, but it's good, too, to check up once in a while and make sure that you
haven't lost the things money can't buy.
