Get Out And Vote

The primary elections are being held today. 

By now, you likely have picked which sign you liked the most, and plan on casting your vote for that candidate/candidates.

We do not plan on influencing your vote today. 


A longtime friend of the site is running for Westmoreland County Coroner. 

He has served locally for many years, and is very well qualified to take this position. 

His name is Christopher O'Leath. 

He is a solid guy that we feel will do a great job. 

You may have to write him in, depending upon your party affiliation. 

But that's not hard. 

So do it. 

Go Chris! 
We are in your coroner. 

(get it?)

Still Closed. Always Relevant.

Sure, we may not be around all that much these days. 

But that doesn't mean people aren't still watching us. 

Last Monday, we gave you a hint to the following day's story. 

Tuesday, we hit you with the news that the Memorial Park bridge was being removed/replaced. 

We told you to go say your goodbyes. 

Fast forward 2 days later to Thursday, and you could read about it in the local paper. 

Lucky for you, being one of our valued readers (or 1300+ facebook fans), you were given time to pay your final respects, thanks to us. 

For free. 

And now, the bridge has been fully removed, and all ways in to the park are closed. 

Actually, that last statement is not fully true. 

Fact is, the walking bridge near the playground is still fully functional. 

Unfortunately for everyone, the nearest parking spot would be in the Terrace. 

And we all know that the only parking spots up there are for handicap vehicles, or occupied by a folding chair. 

So good luck with that. 

Maybe the VND can do a story on that? 

How about it? 

We know you're reading this.

It's So Hard...

To say goodbye, to yesterday. 

(Your mind was total pervert mode when you read that title.)

The we hit you upside your pervy mind with some hot Boys II Men lyrics. 

But anyways, today is your last chance to take a ride across the Memorial Park bridge. 

That rickety beast is about to be replaced, and likely won't make it till sundown tomorrow. 

It's a sad day for many of us. 

The sound of that bridge likely reminds you of many great childhood memories. 

If not, you have no soul. 

Or maybe you just played at another one of the city's parks. 

Either way... 

Have a quick moment of silence. 
Pour out a slug of your 40oz. 
Drop a tear in a bucket. 

And say goodbye to the bridge. 

It has served us all very well.

A Valentine's Day poem from Frank the Stank...

"Roses be red, and violets be blew,
I just drank me a forty of hurricane, and so should u."

His gal is a lucky lady.

Go give someone a kiss, and be happy it's not Frank.

It's Fishy

It's fishy to rock around, to rock around that's right on time, it's fishy. 

Fishy fishy fish, here we go... 

It is totally that time of year again. 

Fish fry here, fish fry there. 

Our personal favorite fish fry is held at the #4 firehall up on the coner of 7th St and Strawn. 

It starts next Wednesday. 

This is just a small preemptive post to whet your appetite.

We will post a full menu and list of days/times coming up soon. 

Good luck getting "It's Fishy" out of your head.
