Picture of the Week

I thought I'd do a little gear changing and make a trip to Ebensburg. This view of the Courthouse, made somewhat cluttered by the blue car, was taken from the parking lot across the street. Mid-town Grubsnebe is looking good these days with the addition of new sidewalks, victorian street lamps, benches, and newly planted trees.

 

Mystery Person of the Week

'Who Am I?'

This member of the Nanty Glo-Vintondale High School class of 1959, called "Tioga" by his friends, was a member of the Latin Club, Spanish Club, and Yearbook staff. He liked driving anything on wheels and was loyal to the Hilltoppers. He was also a member of the school band but couldn't manage to march in step with the rest of the members. "What'a ya say?" was a favorite thing to say.

  

Update: Last week's Mystery Person was Patricia Cohick.
