Well, here we are, back with some more wintry weather over the weekend. Had it all again….the rain spritzes, flurries, frost, cold temperatures, clouds, and we can’t forget that never ending blowing wind; had some sun but nothing to write home about. Can’t believe during the week it is to get up in the 60’s. We will see if that happens.
I’ve been remiss not putting the pierogies for sale in my news. So, here it is: St. Vladimir’s Church has pierogies for sale. To order, please call 570-928-1099. I’ve had a few calls and directed them to the right person.
Hope there were some lucky turkey hunters on Saturday. Haven’t really heard from anyone if they got their bird or not.
I don’t know of a whole lot going on right now. I know there are probably things coming up, so keep an eye on the Sully to find out.
Our little town of Lopez has had some excitement and lots going on for a few weeks now. They are replacing the bridge by the Post Office, so there are workers, cranes and other big equipment to do this project. Don’t know how long the job will take, but once it’s done, will be nice again.
Congratulations to John McDonald, Jr. on being honored with an Outstanding Alumni Award from the Pennsylvania State University Forest Resources Alumni Group. John is the son JoAnn McDonald and the late John McDonald. Very interesting article in the paper last week, with it being continued in the May 2nd issue. He is originally from Lopez and now lives in MA with his wife and daughter. Very educated and professional young man.
Third period Honor Roll: Distinguished Honors – Kyler Burke and Aaron Kinsey. Honor – Paige Burke. Congratulations. If I’ve missed someone, please let me know.
HINT: “To keep wasps away this summer, mix 2 TBSP apple cider vinegar, 1 TBSP sugar and a few drops of Dawn dish soap (regular) in 1 liter of water. Put some in a dish or aluminum pan in areas where they are and around the house to see where they are breeding.”
Happy Birthday wishes to Paige and Kyler Burke, May 1st; JoAnn Day, 2nd; Ken Pochatko, 6th; Ted Lowden and Ryan Dempsey, 7th; Diane Fanning, 9th; and Elizabeth Spinosa, 10th. Have a good day.
Mark your calendar. There will be a work bee to clean up the parks for summer mowing. Meet at the Pavilion on Saturday, May 12th, at 11 a.m. Any volunteers will be greatly appreciated. Bring a rake, wear gloves and come with ambition.
Don’t forget the Primary Election will soon be coming up. If you want your person to get into office, go to vote on May 15th. It’s your right and your privilege.
Due to Election Day being on Tuesday, the 15th, the Civic meeting will be on Wednesday, the 16th, 6 p.m. at the Township Building.
The BIG guy has been making his appearance quite frequently here in town. Just seems to want to tip over burning barrels, even if they are empty.
I think that’s the news for this time. Enjoy your week; it’s supposed to get “quite” warm. I’ll take it for sure. Have news call me at 570-928-9238; mail me; see me; or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll get it in for you. I’ll be here next time and thanks for reading.
Work moves forward on replacing the bridge on Main Street. The north side is being replaced first
allowing in and out traffic in the south side lane.
