January 26, 2022
Hope you all enjoyed the week. Not too bad, except for Saturday morning when we had MINUS 22 degrees early. Hail’s Family Farm, just outside of town, had MINUS 35. It was cold and windy. As I’m typing my news on Sunday evening, we’re having a snowfall with light, fluffy flakes, but it’s piling up. Made for bad driving getting home with some folks out. Also, was a two hour delay on Monday morning for the school kids. I did hear we are to get another clipper storm later in the week. Oh, joy! Can’t do anything about it. It is winter and Mother Nature wants us to know that.
Joe and Diane Fanning, along with Molly, Landenberg, spent some time at their home on Church Street. Did some shoveling while they were here and enjoyed their time.
St. Vladimir’s Church has pierogies for sale the first and third Sunday of the month. Can be picked up at the Church Hall from Noon to 1 p.m. Call 570-928-8909 to order.
Brian McGuire and Nina Weslowski spent the weekend with her parents, Gerry and Paula, in Allentown for a late Christmas celebration.
I got the following from Rev Bob Logan and thought it was an interesting read:
January 22nd was the 111th anniversary of the accidental coal mining injury and death of Theodore Shymansky. He was injured when the “ceiling” (roof of a mining tunnel) collapsed on him while at work. He was mining one more car of coal for a few extra dollars to support his family.He suffered multiple body fractures and a fractured skull. He lived about 22 hours at Robert Packer Hospital. Mr. Shymansky was a devout man and established several Orthodox Churches in Yonkers, NY; Mayfield, PA; and Lopez, PA. He was the maternal “Dedushka” (grandfather in Russian) of Reverend Logan. He is buried in the old Orthodox Cemetery in Lopez. The grave marker was refurbished by family donations a few years ago out of respect for him. He was born in 1878 and died in 1909.
Happy Birthday wishes to round out January include Mike Stavisky, down in sunny FL, 24th; Scott Aharonian, 27th; Jennifer Pequignot, 28th; Lisa and Jason Burke, both on the 30th. Have a good day.
February birthdays for the first week include Kyra Vinetelli and Brian Dendler, 1st; and Tyler McGuire, 2nd, which is Ground Hog Day. Think the ole bugger will see his shadow and give us six more weeks of winter? Count on it.
Keep and eye on the Sully for up-coming events you might be interested in.
Guess that’s the news for now. Enjoy your week, whatever you have planned. Have news, give me a call at 570-928-9238; snail mail me; or e-mail me at email@example.com. I will get it in for you. Best to call before 6 p.m. so I can get it typed and sent over later in the evening. I’ll be here next time and thanks for reading.
