May 23, 2011 JFK Walking Path & Yuengling Park Poetry Walk 1:30 – 3:00 p.m. meets in the parking lot by the swimming pool and tennis courts in Pottsville. After walking the JFK path we will car pool to Yuengling Park and share poetry. All ages welcome! Bad weather cancels the walk. If in doubt, call Marsha at 570-624-3020. The Yuengling Park is built on a site formerly owned by the Yuengling family, makers of Yuengling beer. It is the site of a fresh water mountain spring that once was a source of water for making beer, up until the 1960s. In 2000 Richard Yuengling donated the land to the city and it was turned into a city park, complete with a gazebo, stream and walking paths.

I am slowly making my way around the area trying different establishments.  Giving myself an excuse to get out and treat myself to something besides stale nuts from my desk drawer. Park Restaurant is located on East Washington St.  in Shenandoah Pennsylvania.  I have to admit it doesn't look like much from the outside and there is really no parking lot so to speak.  You just turn and drive up to the park and just find a place for your vehicle.  The inside is a bit dated, but the food is really good an worth repeat trips. The menu ranges from breakfast items, meatloaf, burgers, various sandwiches, honey dipped chicken my favorite with french fries with cheese and brown gravy and numerous other tasty entrees. This is a small family owned establishment and not only is the food terrific but...

OCTOBER 9 Dead Men Don’t Need Dress Rehearsals Saturday, October 9 at 7:00 p.m. Tickets: $12. Everyone seemed to hate Derek Moore, so no one is surprised when the smooth-talking actor is found dead in the middle of a dress rehearsal. Archie Lewis, a well-intentioned but goofy detective who happens to be in the theatre, offers to solve the case, but things turn out to be more complicated than he anticipates. Why does the female stagehand, Ed, talk only in lines from clas...

Are you thinking of selling your Schuylkill County Home FSBO -- by yourself? Marketing a home in 2010 is NOT the same as marketing it 10 years ago. Even if you did this before, you have to do so much more than plant a sign on the yard and place a classified ad. 5. Advertising is more complicated. When is the last time you read the newspaper or searched the classifieds. Years ago you'd buy the paper to see what homes were for sale or rent. A single classified ad run several times a week might get you enough calls to sell the house. Now it's so much more complicated! Most agents and brokers don't advertise anymore in newspapers because THEY DON'T WORK and also because they are very expensive considering the lack of results. 4. Are you internet savvy? What does work is the internet. Buyer ...
