Good Morning Nanty Glo!

Photo of the week
This week's photo by Judy Rose

Prime real estate... "Immergrün" (German for "Evergreen"), the Charles Schwab Mansion in Loretto, once the home of the first president of U.S. Steel and the founder of Bethlehem Steel, is now a Catholic Seminary. The breathtakingly beautiful Sunken Gardens below the mansion are pruned and tended to perfection and are only a small segment of the vast estate. In this instance, one picture is not worth a thousand words...and watch for "The rest of the story" next week.
